I didn’t find any information about this (just people whining about not getting a firmware update) so I feel like posting it so others may find it using google. My HD700X seems to be able to do 120hz. I just did a quick test using my laptop (vga) since my media pc (hdmi) is broken right now, but it seems to work. I am running Debian and all I did was set the resolution, it just worked. The online specs I read state it could only do 100hz, but it even shows me it is actually running at 120hz. So if anyone has one of those projectors, as well as 3D equipment, I would highly appreciate any feedback on how well it works since I am thinking about getting shutter glasses as well.
Watching 24p video at 24hz is fluent (besides the 24p lagginess), same for 48hz. But from that point on (72hz, 96hz and 120hz) it starts juttering. I am not sure whether that’s vdpau/nvidia or the projector. I also realized my HD700X reports as HD65 according to the EDID data. Pretty weird – I guess the easiest way to find out whether it actually supports 120hz is getting 3d shutter equipment.
Optoma released an official firmware update unlocking 120hz operation including DLP-Link for the HD65, HD700x and GT7000 projectors.
