Today Nvidia has released a WHQL version of the 258.96 drivers for both the GeForce GPU driver and the 3D Vision driver and they are both also available as a new Nvidia GeForce 3D Vision Driver CD v1.33 WHQL. The WHQL drivers do not bring anything new since the 258.96 beta drivers that were made available last week with the official introduction of the GeForce GTX 460 GPUs, but these are not beta anymore. Just as a reminder, the 258.96 drivers add support for the GeForce GTX 460 GPU and also official 3D Vision support for three new 3D DLP projectors from Optoma and these are: Optoma GT720, Optoma HD67, and Optoma HD66.

Along with the release of the new GPU today, Nvidia has also made available a new GPU and 3D Vision beta drivers to go along with support for the GeForce GTX 460. The new drivers are version 258.91 and they are also available as a full package for 32-bit and 64-bit Vista and 7 in the form of GeForce 3D Vision Driver CD v1.32 Beta (now called 1.33 beta). Besides the support for the GeForce GTX 460 GPU in the new drivers, something that is no surprise for anyone, there is also support for three new 3D DLP projectors from Optoma and these are: Optoma GT720, Optoma HD67, and Optoma HD66. So if you have one of these already and you’ve had trouble making it work with 3D Vision now you should be able to use it without any trouble as you’ll have official driver level compatibility. These three projectors are all wide aspect ratio and support native resolution of 720p for the HD66 and HD67, along with 800p for the GT720, so the Acer H5360 is finally going to have some competition with other officially supported projectors with higher resolution and wide aspect ratio…

It seems that Acer won’t be the only company offering an affordable 720p projector with 3D support, as Optoma has just announced their own 720p 3D Ready home theater projector. Optoma HD66 offers a wide aspect 16:9 ratio and native resolution of 1280×720 pixels, the maximum brightness is 2500 ANSI lumens and the maximum contrast ratio is 4000:1. The new projector weights just about 2,3 kilograms (5 pounds). The projector can be used for either front or rear projection, it can be ceiling or tabletop mounted and will project images from 23″ to 300″ diagonal. There is a built-in two-watt speaker for audio playback, but you’d probably prefer to use something with better sound quality and power when playing games or watching movies.
The HD66 is using Texas Instruments’ 0.65 DMD DLP chipset and has HDMI, DSUB15 (Analogue VGA), S-Video and Composite Video inputs, but as with the Acer there is no clarification what input you can use with 120Hz for Stereoscopic 3D mode. Optoma HD66 can project in stereoscopic 3D in 720p HD (1280×720), XGA (1024×768) and SVGA (800×600) resolution according to the manufacturer and of course requires you to use active shutter glasses, but is not yet officially supported by 3D Vision! Optoma HD66 has an a recommended end user price of $699. Now lets see who will be the first one with a Full HD 1080p 3D-capable projector… ;)
