At present stereoscopic 3D output for video games is only supported by Nvidia Corp., but later this month ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices, will enable support of stereoscopic 3D technologies in its new Catalyst 10.1 drivers.

Among other innovations and improvements, ATI will also update the Direct 3D driver so as to allow third party firms to use their 3D solution with 120Hz screens and will also add support for active-shutter Bit Cauldron glasses, reports Geeks3D web-site citing another media report. At present Bit Cauldron glasses are not available, hence, it will not be possible to take advantage of stereo 3D just now.

Earlier this month AMD’s graphics group already demonstrated work of ATI Radeon HD 5000-series hardware with active-shutter Bit Cauldron glasses at Consumer Electronics Show. Bit Cauldron glasses will be available from major household brand names in the second half of 2010.

“Bit Cauldron glasses work together with AMD GPU’s to provide the world’s best 3D experience. Plus, these glasses are the ‘universal remote control’ of 3D glasses, interoperating with 3D-Ready televisions from several major manufacturers,” said James Mentz, chief executive officer of Bit Cauldron.

At present the difference between Bit Cauldron glasses and Nvidia 3D Vision is unclear, but it looks like the former is only compatible with the incoming stereo 3D high-definition TV-sets.

“Bit Cauldron glasses use advanced IEEE 802.15.4 radios for a reliable connection from display to glasses. With other glasses at the CES, look away from the TV or step out from the carefully controlled viewing area and you’ll see them flicker, while ours keep working just fine,” said Samuel Caldwell, vice president of engineering at Bit Cauldron.
