"Version 1.4 has the capability of transmiting 2 simultaneous 1080p signals; version 1.3 can not, and while you will still get 3D, it will only be 1080i and HD cable/satellite converted to 3D will only be 540i. (Those with the passive, non powered 3D systems like LG and the new 2012 Panasonic LED's may not notice. Some people with active 3D systems may not notice the difference between 1080i and 1080p either.)"
The official HDMI site states that dual streaming 1080p is an upgrade introduced to 1.4
I never said 1.3 can't do 3D, it can, but is not capable of 1080p in 3D, only in 2D. 3D will only show 1080i on a 1.3 high speed cable.
Google 1.3 vs 1.4 and you will find various other respected sites stating the same.

The confusion comes from the fact that you talking here about the 1.4 version of the interface and not the cable....It's true that 1.3 can't pass two 1080p images and high resolution audio at the same time but any high speed cable can. And you don't need two 1080p images simultaneously to get 3D in 1080p. All you need is the capacity to pass two 1080p images sequentially. That's why the PS3 can do it even with it's HDMI 1.3 output. And remember, it's the interface that has different versions not the cables...
