DDD TriDef 3D Software Has Been Updated to Version 4.4

December 24th, 2010 · 4 Comments · General 3D News


I haven’t covered new driver updates from DDD and their TriDef 3D Software for a while, but that doesn’t mean the company has stopped working on their software. Just in time for Christmas comes a new update version 4.4 that brings even more improvements and fixes, with it DDD claims to have support for over 420 games – 383 with DDD game profiles and 50+ with user submitted profiles. There is also improved NVIDIA 3D Vision interoperability (for multimedia playback), new game profiles added for FIFA 09, 11, Lost Planet 2, NBA 2K9, Allods Online, The Settlers II – 10th Anniversary, and other games. An interesting update for the TriDef 3D Media Player is the addition of support for .srt and .sub subtitle file formats.

The previous updates were not that significant, but what is noticeable as a trend is that DDD is quite active lately and has been constantly adding a lot of new game profiles with every single update. And that is a good thing, especially since not every user will want to tweak or create his own profile in order to play games in stereo 3D, so this activity is much appreciated. Since version 4.3.1 when the support for AMD HD3D technology on ATI Radeon HD 5000 series and AMD Radeon HD 6000 series cards was added DDD had 329 profiles for games made by them and now they are 383 (over 50 new profiles for two months). On the other hand iZ3D has been quite silent as usual in terms of updates and since the late October official release of their iZ3D Driver version 1.12 they haven’t had any update.

    I don’t mean to sound like a broken record but.. could you please clarify if this means that it is now a viable option to purchase some Radeon 6xxx card(s) and be able to game in 3D?

    If I were to do that, then which glasses would I have to get?

    Reason I ask of course is that I really want to upgrade my gpu soon and really want to be able to enjoy 3D but I’m still not sure if Nvidia is to be considered the only “complete” 3d solution at the moment or can you achieve nearly the same with an ATI setup?

    No, I would not recommend that if you plan to use an AMD-based desktop GPU and shutter glasses along with a LCD monitor, with the reason being that there is still just only one compatible monitor that comes with a pair of wired shutter glasses bundled. This monitor from Viewsonic is still hard to find and I don’t know how well it will perform. You can of course go for a passive polarized solution such as Zalman Trimon etc, that are more well known and you know what you will get. But the HP Envy 17 3D for example is not a bad 3D-capable laptop that uses AMD’s HD3D technology, a review of that laptop is coming very soon…
