As promised a few days ago Nvidia has released the first official beta driver from the new Release 256 family of drivers (versions 256.xx to 259.xx), it is the 257.15 GPU beta driver and along with it also an update for the 3D Vision driver also version 257.15. Among the features of the new GPU driver is the addition of support for Blu-ray 3D with NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, although we still need the software players with Blu-ray 3D support to come out (should happen pretty soon). There is also an increase in performance for GeForce GTX 400 Series GPUs in several PC games and a new NVIDIA Control Panel setup page for SLI and PhysX for better control over multi-gpu configurations. There are also other additional features and improvements for SLI and CUDA users as well as some bug fixes in the new 257.15 driver. Still no support for the 3D Vision Surround in this version of the driver, however such should be available by the end of the next month in a new driver release according to Nvidia (end of June).
The new 3D Vision 257.15 driver also has some new improvements, but not so significant as with the GPU driver. The new 3D Vision driver adds supports for the upcoming GeForce GTX 465 GPUs; the new 3D Vision-Ready LCDs ASUS VG236H, LG W2363D 120 Hz, LG W2363DB 120 Hz; and the 3D Vision-ready Projectors ViewSonic PJD6251 and ViewSonic PJD6531w. There are also profiles for the following games/applications: Alice in Wonderland, iRacing Demo, StarCraft II, Lost Planet 2, Stone Giant and Heaven Benchmark. You can download the 3D Vision driver 257.15 as a separate download or get the Full CD with v1.27 that contains both the GPU and 3D Vision Driver for 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.
There is still no update for the 3D Vision full CD version for notebook users, but you can download the Verde Notebook driver version 257.15 too and then just install the 3D Vision Driver only and you can get the needed support for your laptop weather it has a 120Hz built-in screen or you use and external 120Hz LCD monitor with it.
