iZ3D has been talking about DirectX 10 drivers for well over a year, so they made up for lost time by releasing 1.11 Beta Drivers that feature DX9, DX10, and DX11 support. We can’t yet speak to their quality because we are working remotely, but we have high hopes.
Leading driver features include:
- DirectX 9, 10, and 11 support.
- Limited 120Hz shutter glasses suppoort for projectors on both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs.
- Vivtek, Viewsonic, Optoma, and BenQ brands are supported. Users can submit EDID read-outs to add additional options.
- YouTube 1080P S-3D mode support
- iZ3D table method improvement (i.e. new glasses optimization)
- S-3D screenshots fixed with some outputs
- Autofocus improvement
- Several game profile improvements
- Limitied multi-GPU support in DirectX 10 and 11 modes.
- and much more!
NOTE: We confirmed details with iZ3D, and we wish to reiterate that this driver supports AMD and NVIDIA GPUs equally, and is not brand specific. There are some synchronization advantages with AMD because of their relationship, but similar benefits have been managed with NVIDIA GPUs independently.
There is one remaining challenge. Which shutter glasses are going to work? Members are encouraged to share their results. Are your glasses connected via dongle? Do USB glasses (like NVIDIA’s GeForce 3D Vision) work? What about XpanD glasses run on DLP? iZ3D was a bit vague on specifics.
That said, congratulations to the iZ3D team! Please share your thoughts and findings in the comments below.
