AMD HD3D Technology in 60 Seconds on Video Using a 3D HDTV

March 10th, 2011 · 16 Comments · Other S3D Tech

AMD just released two short videos promoting their stereoscopic 3D solution, but interestingly enough the focus is only on 3D HDTV and not on monitors (there is actually only one supporting shutter glasses anyway and it is not very nice looking). In the first video AMD’s Shane Parfitt is setting up AMD HD3D gaming in 60 seconds on an AMD Radeon graphics card using DDD’s TriDef 3D middle-ware, but the video card is not the just announced Radeon 6990 though. The game used for the demonstration is Medal of Honor which BTW is not that great in stereo 3D mode.

On the second video AMD’s Shane Parfitt (the product manager also responsible for HD3D) shows how to enable 3D Blu-ray playback on an AMD Radeon graphics card using ArcSoft’s Total Media Theatre software for the actual Blu-ray 3D playback. With AMD being not very active on stereo 3D technology in general, these two videos are interesting and are at least showing that the company did not completely forget that it is also providing some support for that technology as well. However if you’ve read my recent post comparing the different solutions for gaming in stereo 3D mode, you should’ve seen that AMD’s middle-ware partners like DDD with the TriDef 3D software and iZ3D with their iZ3D Driver are also not very active in releasing improved and updated versions lately. And we can only hope that things will finally start moving a bit faster in regards to AMD’s HD3D technology…
