3D movies have were around before the 1950s, with the first known 3D movie in 1904 and the first shown to a paying audience in 1924. 28 million 3DTVs in 2012 sounds like a lot but it isn't so many when you consider there are about 2 million in the US already. If you own a DLP or Plasma TV, you may own a 3D TV and not even know it! Since all decoders are digital today, the best way to avoid a format war is to make the 3D decoder downloadable. New format? go to the company website, download the decoder and show the 3D.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
