3D on AMD?

Postposted on Mon Feb 03, 2014 5:05 pm

I was wondering if I could play games in 3d with my r9 290
as far as I know only nvidia has this feature or is there a way for amd cards to do this also ?

As long as you have a display that can do 3D, then yes.

Basically, instead of having their own kit like Nvidia, which still requires a high refresh rate monitor, they rely on the screen manufactures to solve the problem themselves, since many of they have the option of supporting 3D anyway if they are high refresh rate monitor.
