The guys from iZ3D have released the final version of their universal drivers that do not support only iZ3D’s displays, but a lot of other solutions for preparing a stereoscopic 3D setup, including even a free anaglyph mode. The final 1.10 version comes after a few release candidates and it not only contains some new profiles for games, but also a lot of improvements and fixes… still nothing new about the shutter mode though. This means that all the owners of eMagin Z800 and a few other HMDs and other setups will still have to wait for the next driver version, supposedly 2.0 that should have a lot of improvements in the shutter support. Anyway, here is what is new in the iZ3D 1.10 Final Drivers:
Version 1.10 – 2009.11.04
[+]Added Batman Arkham Asylum, Settlers II, Need for Speed Shift, G-Force, Section 8,

There is some information on the net already that Acer will most likely be the first company to offer a 23,6″ LCD monitor that will offer Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution and of course being with a 120Hz panel. This means that most likely Acer will be the first company to release on the market a Full HD monitor that will be compatible with GeForce 3D Vision, and this monitor seems to be right about to hit the shelves. Furthermore this gaming display should not be a lot more expensive compared to the already available 22″ offers from Samsung and ViewSonic that are still the only ones with 120Hz panels on the market so far. Of course we’ll have to wait and see until this new display is available on the market, but I’m eagerly anticipating it already… ;)

It seems that Nvidia is already preparing on a driver level for the first 3D Vision capable laptops with Asus G51J being one of the first series with a limited edition model that should be equipped with a 120Hz LCD screen. Or at least that is the hint I got after installing the 3D Vision 195.39 BETA Drivers on a laptop with a normal display and tried to enable the 3D Vision Discover mode on the laptop (the one for the anaglyph glasses). Unfortunately I was presented with the above error and was unable to activate Stereoscopic 3D regardless the mode, as I cannot go the choosing a mode from the control panel. I wonder if I’ll keep getting this error message if I connect an external 120Hz LCD to the laptop, as the laptop screen will still not be qualified for 3D Vision…?
Anyway it is back to the previous 3D Vision drivers version as it seems that these new beta drivers still have some issues and I need to have the 3D Vision Discover mode enabled on that laptop for demonstrations on how the anaglyph glasses work and what to expect from them “for free” compared to the 3D Vision shutter glasses.
