AMD release quad buffer stereoscopic 3D API
« on: August 04, 2011, 11:48:47 PM »
Good news:
AMD have released the previously promised API that allows games to natively support stereoscopic  3D on recent AMD GPUs (5000/6000 series).
http://developer.amd.com/sdks/QuadBufferSDK/Pages/default.aspx

Bad news:
The API only supports Direct3D. OpenGL quad buffer requires an expensive professional card (FireGL), so we won't be seeing Quake in stereoscopic 3D anytime soon (unless you use NVIDIA's Vision 3D).
