X-bit Labs reports ATI has confirmed it expects modern stereo 3D technology is here to stay:
Regardless of of the fact that ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices, has not introduced its own set of devices to support stereoscopic 3D technology, which is making inroads into the market, the graphics chips developer believes that the modern stereo-3D (S3D) is actually here to stay.
“I feel graphics technology is now powerful enough to drive an incredible S3D experience. The big question is whether it will have mass market appeal while glasses remain a requirement. Will people balk at the $100 + price of active shutter glasses? I believe S3D is here to stay, and will grow in the coming years,” said Neal Robison, the director of ISV relationship management at AMD in an interview with X-bit labs.
