NVIDIA may have been banging on the 3D drum for months, but it's now AMD's turn to play the same tune.

The launch of the company's Radeon HD 6000-series graphics cards will next week add a further few 3D capabilities to the Radeon line, including full support for Blu-ray 3D through the inclusion of Multiview Video Coding (MVC) in UVD 3.

It's no surprise, then, to see the AMD 3D-certified displays beginning to appear on the market. First out of the gate is ViewSonic with the 24in V3D241wm-LED.

Shipping with a pair of 3D active-shutter glasses, the LED-backlit display offers a 3D-enabling 120Hz refresh rate, a full-HD 1,920x1,080 resolution, a 2ms grey-to-grey response time and a quoted dynamic contrast ratio of 20,000,000:1.

Stereo speakers are integrated to provide a basic four watts of audio output, as is a USB port for the bundled glasses, and users are given a choice of HDMI, DVI or VGA connectors.

Commenting on the launch, Darren Grasby, AMD's corporate vice president of EMEA sales, said "the ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED is an ideal match for AMD Radeon graphics cards, as it will enable one of the most compelling stereo 3D experiences currently available."

The ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED should be popping up at retailers right about now priced at £330.

I wish they would stop these 1920 x 1080 24" LCDs I want 1920 x 1200!

This one's essentially designed for films so fair play to them this time. I agree with the sentiment though.
Typical really, I just bought a friggin' 22“ viewsonic vx2268wm!

Need some reviews!
Only thing that I have to question is why its £330…

24” LED is about £220
120hz 22" is about £220-280

So why the premium?
bundled glasses
Ohh right. D'oh.

But will they sell a version without the 3D glasses?…
