New Stereoscopic 3D Driver from iZ3D Joins AMD HD3D Ecosystem

AMD and iZ3D Cooperate to Expand Stereoscopic 3D on the AMD Graphics Platform

San Diego, CA - iZ3D, Inc., designer, developer and pioneer of advanced stereoscopic 3D visualization software today announced the release of its latest stereoscopic 3D (S3D) driver, which is a key component of the AMD HD3D ecosystem initiative. The newest S3D driver continues the iZ3D policy of producing universal S3D drivers that are compatible with most games, graphics cards and other S3D devices.


"iZ3D continues to grow market share by supporting the widest spectrum of S3D platforms and S3D devices. This partnership with AMD, along with support from S3D display manufacturers like CMI and Zalman, will accelerate the transformation of the nascent S3D market into an established mass market in 2011. With our fellow 3D gamers we can make this happen," stated Tom Striegler, CEO, iZ3D.

The newest S3D driver from iZ3D further improves the performance of the previous driver, particularly for DirectX 10 / DirectX 11 platforms. In addition, iZ3D listened and responded to user requests, removing EDID limitations for 120Hz shutter 3D devices, and making iZ3D the only S3D driver that provides support for 120Hz shutter S3D technology for all types of graphics cards. This new version also includes the iZ3D 3D API and gives 3rd party developers the ability to generate S3D applications for all S3D devices on the market. AMD intends to co -market the iZ3D driver with select AMD Radeon™ HD 5000 and AMD Radeon™ HD 6000 graphics products.
