Unlike Nvidia with its GeForce 3D Vision initiative, AMD hasn't really attempted to meld stereoscopic 3D and PC games. The company isn't shunning stereoscopic graphics altogether, though. In its latest announcement, AMD says it intends to demonstrate the "forthcoming Blu-ray stereoscopic 3D standard" at the Consumer Electronics Show next month.
If you're in Vegas in time for the show, you'll be able to view AMD's demo in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center, booths GL-8 and GL-10. There, CyberLink will join AMD to demonstrate the standard, presumably running on AMD hardware and through CyberLink software.
AMD notes that it's a contributing member of the Blu-ray Disc Association, and it's "working closely with technology partners as the format specifications are finalized over the coming year in order to help ensure compatibility with upcoming AMD hardware." The company plays up stereoscopic Blu-ray as "high-fidelity 3D entertainment once reserved only for theaters."
We'll be at CES next month, so we might get a chance to swing by the booth and see what's up.
