Default Racing sims and NVidia 3D vision? Any good?

Instead of cashing out and buying a unit, does anyone here have any
experience with the NVidia IR transmitted 3D vision goggles?

Is it hard on the GPU? CPU? Flicker? Useful in racing sims? Is it good
on LCDs? Any flicker? FPS drop? I would expect the image to flicker,
since the shutters actually shuts the images on and off, and this does
not take place with normal 2D display...

Or is this just a worthless gimmick without any good use?

I know that our stereo vision is limited to relatively short distances
(less than 10m?) and in racing sims we watch things hundred of meters
away, beyond that stereo vision range...

Any experiences, anyone?

I believe (somebody correct me if I am wrong) for 3D you have to
have vsync "on", and this bad for FFB.

Ah. Makes sense. I would expect Vsync to be a requirement for stereo 3d
vision...

But I can't believe game houses still let vsync "lock" the physics model
because there really is no need to.

The images you see on the screen should be just a snapshot of the
virtual world at one point of time, and not "hey, let's lock the entire
game up and wait for the vsync"...

Well, let's see if someone actually tried the stuff...

It is visual thing, not physics thing.
You first try a game with vsync "on", then you will know what vsync
does to a sim. Vsync is a serious thing, and seriously affects FFB. Any lag,
the smallest lag, affects FFB. Even using a Logitech profiler introduces lag
to FFB, and seriously affects controlability of a car, and not to say vsync.
