AMD does 3d? You mean that laughable science project where you buy some drivers from some companies far outside the gaming industry for the privilege of gaming only on tvs at 24fps at 1080P?

Because AMD utilizes the HDMI 1.4a specification, which boasts a maximum TMDS throughput of 10.2 Gb/s, you can either game in stereo at 720p maxing out at 60 frames per second per eye, or you can game at 1080p with up to 24 frames per second per eye


Of course, it is a lot farther than ATi got with the GPU accelerated physics they've been trying to figure out for 5 years:

ATI Says It Can Do Physics Better Than AGEIA and NVIDIA


It is true ATi can lay claim to the faster at some games and settings, it's too bad they had to clock their part so high to do it a lot of people don't want to be in the same room with it.

Better luck next time ATi.
