AMD to Demonstrate on Blu-ray Stereoscopic 3D

Are you ready for Blu-ray 3D? We aren't either, but AMD is excited to show off its Blu-ray stereoscopic 3D standard. The company today announced that it will demonstrate the forthcoming "standard" at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show.

AMD said that it will be partnering with CyberLink to jointly preview its 3D technology in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“AMD has a long, proud tradition of delivering leading technologies to market – technologies that have a meaningful and positive impact on the PC experience,” said Rick Bergman, senior vice president, AMD Products Group. “Stereoscopic 3D is set to be one of these technologies, and that’s why AMD has committed the time and resources to ensure that when Blu-ray stereoscopic 3D is ready for the world, AMD will be ready to bring it to consumers, just as we have done recently with DirectX 11-capable hardware to support DirectX 11 gaming.”

Besides that, AMD and Cyberlink didn't let on any further details about its technology or setup. We suppose seeing will be believing this January.

    I could care less about Stereoscopic 3D.

    Instead, I wish they would concentrate on true Holographic technology such as Holographic Projectors which can be scaled down small enough to fit a laptop or to outfit a given area such as the top of a desk or a whole room.

    most of the games I play are still in dx9. I don't think 3d is going to become the "new standard" any time soon.
