[Chimera-users] Zalman 3D/stereo monitors

For stereo on the Mac I have been using the nvidia 4500 quadro card with a view sonic CRT, chimera with sequential stereo page flipped with an stereo graphics IR & glasses. In this scenario I was under the impression that the video page flip rate is 100-120Hz
The new 3D LCDs (e.g., Zalman, Hyundai) create stereo through circular polarization that require passive glasses. But these monitors are working at no greater than 75hz.
The bottom line question is: if I buy one of these units to replace my view sonic CRT, will it work on my Mac?
I get the impression reading the technical specs that it might only work with vista and directX.

The other obvious thing is that you need a newer version of Chimera than
the 1.3 production release. Just grab any of the daily builds from
www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/download.html. If you still have problems
after trying Conrad's suggestion come on down to GH-N456 and check the
graphics settings we are using with our Zalman 3D display.
