This is a fairly newbie question that I would like to ask:
I am bit confused about how to reproduce 3D content on the monitor. I was thinking of getting myself a new laptop with integrated HD 4000 graphics (i5 processor and 6 GB RAM). My questions are:
1) If I buy a 3D monitor will I be able to play 3D video with above mentioned graphics card?
2) If answer above is no, what do I have to have to play 3D movies and watch them on the monitor?

Thanks everyone in advance for the answers!

Yes, as long as the monitor is going to be connected using HDMI 1.4 as stated in Quick Reference Guide to 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Graphics (formerly codenamed Ivy Bridge):

Intel® InTru™ 3D

Enjoy the ultimate 3-D visual experience—seamlessly from your PC. Now you can watch your favorite 3-D Blu-ray* movies using passive glasses or active shutter glasses all delivered in full 1080p resolution on your stereo 3-D over HDMI* 1.4.

  • Thanks for the response. So all being said I can just go and buy a laptop with HD 4000, buy a 3D monitor (with passive glasses is ok from the link you sent), open up my favorite media player and play a 3D clip and all should work?
