New nVidia Video Drivers 186.18 and 3D Vision 186.18 Too

June 19th, 2009 · No Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


You can say that nVidia has released a new version of the GeForce 3D Vision drivers (186.16) without saying too much about it and even without updating the download section of the 3D Vision drivers on their website. The only way you can get the 3D Vision driver version 186.18 is by downloading the appropriate new video driver for your card that is designed for Windows Vista or Windows 7. Then you’ll have the latest Video driver, a PhysX driver and a 3D Vision driver all in one package – just run the downloaded Exe file and you’ll find the other installers in the C:\NVIDIA folder where the driver package gets extracted by default. There isn’t much information what is new in this driver, but probably we get new profiles for games, support for ViewSonic’s recently announced PJD-6210-3D and PJD-6220-3D GeForce 3D Vision-compatible DLP projectors and it seems some new applications will support 3D with the new version (Cooliris for instance)…

Update: Just installed and played a bit with the 186.18 drivers. I’ve found out about a big fault in them, nVidia had forgotten to include the USB device driver for the IR transmitter so after you install the drivers you’ll get a not working 3D Vision system. The solution is just to install the USB driver from the old version of the drivers that do have the device driver in them… we’ll probably see a fix if somebody notices that.

Update 2: nVidia will release an updated separate driver for GeForce 3D Vision that will have the missing USB driver for the IR transmitter… probably they didn’t include it, because the video drivers bundle version is intended mainly for use with paper or plastic anaglyph glasses… ;)

Download the latest nVidia Video Drivers 186.18 for Vista or Windows 7 with the 3D Vision update…
