Apparently at this weekend's Sydney Gamers League LAN there will be a public demonstration of NVIDIA's 3D Surround. Thanks to ASUS and NVIDIA, Sydney Gamers League (SGL) will be the first public showing of the state of the art, 3D Vision Surround Beta in the world! This brand new technology develops on the previous NVIDIA Surround and 3-Dimensional technology to provide “3D gaming across three 1080p displays for a breathtaking experience”.

They're also showing off the ASUS Ares: Coupled with this, ASUS is showing off its latest and greatest graphics card, the ASUS Ares, and with a price tag of $1999, this card packs a mighty punch! This beast is the sequel to the popular ASUS Mars, and is so powerful, only 1 000 were made, and you can be one of the first Australian’s to see its force at SGL! If you want a sneak preview of this card, check out this video from OC3D.

But it seems the investigation has been dropped, thanks Kosta.
