Nvidia has just released a new beta driver in the form of version 304.48, a driver that is more a bug fix release as well as a driver introducing some performance improvements than something bringing new and interesting features. Regarding 3D Vision support in the new driver, it is pretty much only some new and updated 3D Vision profiles…
New and Updated 3D Vision Profiles:
– Alan Wake’s American Nightmare – Rated Poor
– Borderlands 2 – Updated profile with new convergence settings
– Depth Hunter – Updated rating to 3D Vision Ready
– Mass Effect 3 – Updated in-game compatibility message and profile to be more compatible with community 3D mods
– Max Payne 3 – Updated rating to Excellent and updated in-game compatibility message to inform players to use DirectX 11, to disable MSAA and use FXAA Very High instead, and to use SSAO instead of HDAO.
– Street Fighter X Tekken – Rated 3D Vision Ready
– The Walking Dead – Rated Good
– Tiger Woods PGA 12: The Masters – Rated Good
– Tribes: Ascend – Rated Fair
It isn’t much of a surprise that the new Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is rated as Poor in terms of 3D Vision support, even though the game’s developer promised to pay more attention to the stereoscopic 3D support that they were promising, but did not deliver… I don’t think anyone is surprised here. An interesting thing is that Nvidia is making their profile ore compatible with user modifications for the game Mass Effect 3 making the game look better in stereoscopic 3D mode, hopefully not only Nvidia will recognize the work done by the gaming community, but the developer of the game may also pay some attention and release updates improving the stereoscopic 3D support. You should also note that the game Street Fighter X Tekken is now rated as 3D Vision Ready, so if you still haven’t tried it in stereoscopic 3D mode, then maybe you should give it a go. If you try the new beta feel free to share your feedback from it, and again just as a reminder, this is a beta release, so you may get to see some unexpected issues with it.
