The GameGrade3D user driver stereoscopic 3D game compatibility database has been apparently officially recognized by AMD as a source for independent and reliable information about game compatibility with different stereoscopic 3D solutions, including AMD’s HD3D technology as well as when using software from their middle-ware partners – iZ3D and TriDef 3D. Although nowadays AMD is only talking about TriDef 3D as the things with iZ3D are a bit uncertain, though still iZ3D is a working alternative. AMD has added a logo of GameGrade3D and links to the AMD category with user rating of how different games perform in stereoscopic 3D mode on AMD-based hardware. Hopefully AMD will not be the only one recognizing the GameGrade3D service and especially the user feedback about stereoscopic 3D compatibility in different games that it provides. I personally, and probably a lot of other stereo 3D gamers as well, will be very happy if game developers, among others, also use the feedback generated from users in order to improve their stereoscopic 3D support in games.

GameGrade3D is a user driven database for the stereoscopic 3D compatibility of games with multiple different 3D solutions available on the market. Profiled options include DDD’s TriDef 3D software, the iZ3D Driver, Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision, and native 3D (e.g. AMD HD3D) solutions. GameGrade3D is set to replace the MTBS’ 3D Game Analyzer by adding more features and a new algorithm for rating games in stereoscopic 3D mode, by building on top of it. One of the things that could be very useful is the ability to upload and share your own custom profile for games, so other people would be able to just download and try them to get better experience even if they are not that advanced yet to create their own profiles. Have in mind that GameGrade3D is currently a public beta, so any comments and suggestions for improving it are more than welcome…
