Nvidia GPU and 3D Vision Driver 197.41 with GTX 470 / GTX 480 Support

April 9th, 2010 · 2 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


Now we officially have a GPU driver version 197.41 that supports the new Fermi-based GeForce GTX 470 and GTX 480 cards and Nvidia also has released a 3D Vision driver 197.41 that is designed to be installed only on the GTX 470/480. So if you happen to be one of the first lucky owners of a brand new Fermi-based video (I still see only pre-orders being taken) you should download and install these, especially if you wish to use your new powerful GPU for gaming in stereo 3D with 3D Vision. Have in mind that according to Nvidia the new 3D Vision driver 197.41 only supports GeForce GTX 470 and GTX 480 and not other cards so you should not try to install it on others!

The new 3D Vision driver for Fermi comes with a fix for a problem with ViewSonic projector timings for models PJD6210-3D, PJD6220-3D, PJD5351 and PJD5111 and update to include support for ViewSonic projector models PJD6381, PJD6211, PJD6221, PJD6241, PJD5112. New 3D Vision profiles for the following two games: Alice in Wonderland and StarCraft II Beta, and updated profiles for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, BioShock 2, Metro 2033: The Last Refuge, Napoleon: Total War. These updates and new features will probably very soon be available in an update of the 3D Vision driver that will cover all video cards. Also you should have in mind that in this driver there is still no support for 3D Vision Surround!

    Wondering if edgle blending comes with the ‘sorround.

    Also wondering if the GTS 450 midrange cards going to support ‘sorround in SLI… Obviously , they should , since a 450 should be around a GTX285 in perfomance.

    Yes, the bezel correction options should also come with the 256 release of the driver that also is supposed to introduce the 3D Vision Surround functionality. For the mid-range Fermi-based GPUs, probably, but it is a bit too early as we don’t yet have on the market the high-end models that were already announced … ;)
