New Nvidia GeForce 295.73 WHQL Drivers Are Now Available

February 21st, 2012 · 1 Comment · GeForce 3D Vision


Today Nvidia has made available a new WHQL certified video driver version 295.73 after the multiple beta versions released lately with most of the new features and improvements from the previous beta drivers making appearance in 295.73 as well as some new ones. The new drivers are kind of focused on improving performance in some new games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Diablo III (currently in beta), Mass Effect 3 (only demo for now) and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 as well as adding SLI profiles for some recent games. The 295.73 WHQL drivers also add official support for 3D Vision windowed mode on DLP HDTVs and on “Optimized for GeForce” passive 3D monitors, something that was already made available in a beta driver.

As you can see in the list the much talked about game Alan Wake received Poor rating for its 3D Vision compatibility, something that was expected considering that the game does not work well in stereo 3D mode and has multiple serious issues, although the game’s developers say it works with 3D Vision. From the games with excellent rating you may want to try out The Haunted: Hells Reach if you still haven’t or Q.U.B.E. as it is interesting Portal-like game. Other than that nothing much surprising if you’ve been following the beta drivers, and if you are still at the previous WHQL version then you will want to update to this one now for sure.
