Tom's Hardware got an early look at the driver, along with a pre-release copy of PowerDVD 10 Ultra Mark II, for a round of Blu-ray 3D testing. In addition to benchmarking with hardware acceleration enabled and disabled (along with dual-, triple-, and quad-core CPUs), Tom's also walks through what it takes to enable Blu-ray 3D on a PC.
