New GeForce 280.19 Beta Drivers Are Now Available for Download

July 28th, 2011 · 15 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


Nvidia has made available a new GeForce beta driver version 280.19 that brigns some interesting new features and improvements to the 3D Vision support. The new drivers add support for viewing 3DVisionLive.com and YouTube 3D with SLI multi-gpu configurations, although currently 3D Vision window mode still does not support SLI for 3D games and applications, 3D Vision Photo Viewer, or the Video Player, so you should have that in mind if you are using SLI. The new beta driver adds support for Window mode for 3D Vision Video Player, however this requires you to have v1.7.2 or higher of the player. There is also support being added for three new 3D Vision projectors, these are: Acer X1111, BenQ W710ST, and NEC NP-V300W.

There are 3D Vision Profiles added for the following games:

– Alice Madness Returns
– Back to the Future (Episodes 1-5)
– Chuang Shi Xi You
– Dao Jian 2
– The Darkness 2
– Deep Black
– Dou Zhan Shen
– Dragon Ball Online
– Dungeons and Dragons: Online
– Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising
– League of Legends
– LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
– Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar
– The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
– Mars
– Might & Magic Heroes VI
– Mount & Blade: Warband
– Mount & Blade: With Fire and Blade
– RAGE
– Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
– Rise of the Immortals
– Rusty Hearts
– Serious Sam 3: BFE
– Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

And the following 3D Vision game profiles have been updated:

– Crysis 2 – rating changed to Excellent. NVIDIA recommends using the v1.9 game patch.

– Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition – convergence changes and rating changed to 3D Vision Ready

    They have updated the 3Dvision video player to, version 1.7.2 now includes MVC support for 3D bluray.

    pity the player has not been added with controls while in full screen, drives me mad not being able to fast farward/rewind when in full screen :(

    Interesting that RAGE is on the list. Figured the OpenGL would keep it from being 3D Vision compatible. Nice to see back to the future and League of Legends on there. Hopefully this also fixes Trine

    gadget: stereoscopic player 1.7.3 support seeking in fullscreen with ctrl+wheel

    Trine worked even with older 275 releases, you just need to enable hide 3d stereo effects and then enable 3D vision ingame with CTRL+T.

    With these drivers crysis 2 dx11 3d in unlocked, its true stereo 3d now you can play with the dof and convergence

  • 8 artox // Jul 29, 2011 at 21:01

    So, Crysis 2 has real stereo now?

  • 9 djb // Jul 30, 2011 at 10:19

    Before you rush out and buy 3 monitors and needed cards, etc. check out the “3D Vision Surround” forum.

  • 10 djb // Jul 30, 2011 at 10:21

    That is of course, on the Nvidia Site.

    i see crysis 2 in 3d as before also in ultra settings with dx11
    basically nothing has changed, it’s still the crappy fake 2d as before.
    nvidia only changed rating for unknown reasons

  • 12 gadget78 // Jul 31, 2011 at 21:06

    cool thanks Max will give it a go :)

  • 13 cool // Jul 31, 2011 at 23:34

    with dx11 enabled and patch 1.9 and te 280.19 i can change dof and convergence did you even try ?

  • 14 tigerman // Aug 1, 2011 at 15:55

    it’s not a matter of changing dof and convergence, it’s the rendering that is a fake, nothing has changed by the way, it’s the same 3d of previous versions.

    obviously i tried but who cares to change convergency using the emitter or from the application option? that is not the problem.
    btw i’m still not able to change convergency from the emitter

    Too bad, I was hoping they’d unlocked the true s-3d. Guess, they they are afraid of issues with the effects and performance degradation.
