Intel's WiDi 3.5 Supports Stereoscopic 3D
The ex-Wireless Display connection is now called WiDi 3.5 in its last incarnation by Intel. Of course, Widi 3.5 is connecting displays wirelessly and supports Windows 8 and DLNA, but it does handle also 3D stereoscopic (in side-by-side 1080p mode).
Among good news, Intel announced that WiDi 3.5 is also compatible with its previous competitor technology Miracast (a.k.a. Wi-Fi display) and with USB perpherals, so your future wireless 3D display will also transmit orders from your game paddle, mouse or keyboard.
WiDi 3.5 Requirements
Up to date hardware is required in order to have WiDi 3.5 working : Intel Core i3/i5/i7 with GPU HD 3000 or 4000, PCH series 6 or 7, and a Wi-Fi Centrino board are all mandatory. On the O.S. side, Windows 7 or 8 are supported and drivers should be updated to at least version 15.3 for the PROSet/Wireless WiFi driver and to 15.28 or above for the HD Graphics display driver.
The WiDi PCH6/7 software from Intel is available at numerous places, including at TLD (The French TousLesDrivers website).
On the performance side Intel is promising 60 ms latency for WiDi 3.5 when used with an Ivy Bridge based system (250ms with Sandy Bridge) and a 2nd generation (or newer) WiDi receiver. Later this year we'll see an updated Netgear Push2TV WiDi receiver that's a lot smaller with a starting price of $59.99.
