3D Vision Surround Driver Version 258.69 is Now Officially Available

June 29th, 2010 · 16 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

I’m sure that some of you have had their 3x 120Hz 3D-capable monitors along with two Fermi cards in SLI ready and waiting for some time, but now the driver version 258.69 is finally available with support for the 3D Vision Surround. Now bear in mind that this is a beta driver and there is a GPU driver and a 3D Vision driver version 258.69 and you need both in order to be able to take advantage of the 3D Vision Surround technology supported in them. They are both packed as a 3D Vision Driver CD version 1.31 beta, so it is easier to download the full package all at once, as is has the 32-bit and 64-bit drivers all in one package.

Besides the addition of support for the 3D Vision Surround technology, the new drivers also come with a fix for the problem with the ViewSonic PJD 6531w not being detected by the 3D Vision Setup Wizard. The new driver also adds support for new 3D Vision-ready projectors – Acer X110, Optoma GT360, NEC NP216. There are also two new 3D Vision game profiles for Alpha Protocol and Blur, along with updated profiles for the following games: Order of War, Serious Sam the Second Encounter, World of Warcraft.

    As overrated as this looks (compared to a single or triple pj setup) , the amount of whining because of this driver was insane.
    Poor nvidia. :DD

    Bah, I want support for two screens. Andrew promised this would be working a while back :(

    Having 3 projectors in a small room is very impractical.

    Damn, now i wish i had the money for 3D vision surround!
    That would mean, 2 more Acer GD245HQ screens, 1 more GTX480, and additional cooling so my computer doesnt overheat from 2x GTX480 cards. :)

    By the way, does anyone know if the motherboard called: “Asus Crosshair IV Formula”, with AMD 890FX chipset, suport SLI?

  • 4 Bloody // Jun 29, 2010 at 18:10

    No, officially no AMD chipset supports SLI, just Crossfire with ATI/AMD GPUs…

    Bad Co 2 works in surround,but when you enable 3d surround it goes to desktop.
    2 gtx 470’s
    3 acers

    Thomasjn there is a workaround for your problem:) Haven’t tested it yet myself but I heard alot of people saying it worked. Here is a link, if you want to look some more into it :

    Ps: looking forward to building my new rig on 2 x gtx 295 cards (quad sli) with water cooling everywhere in a Thermaltake Xaser VI case. The mainboard i’m going to use is and AMD chipset Mobo. So once I’ll receive all the missing components, which should be tomorrow, I’ll write my results if anyone is interested in SLI on an AMD chiptset Platform.

    Thanks for the answers to my question about SLI with AMD chipset. :)

    Helifax, it sounds really intresting, and im really intrested in your results.
    Since, as far as i know, it’s not a hardware issue that makes SLI on AMD chipset a no-go.
    So some tests showing results with 1x GTX 295, and 2x GTX 295 could be really awesome, to see how well it scales.
    It would be much appreciated! :)

    – Sorry for miss-spells :)

    Bart, maybe he was talkin out of ……
    I would be very suprised if we got what we want :(

  • 9 jcredible // Jun 30, 2010 at 03:25

    Ok, so I’ve watched a few videos on this but haven’t read much about this. Is this for any game or only specific games?

    I mean I guess this could essentially just treat the 3 monitors as one and stretch the image across all three panels.. but maybe there’s more to it than that?

    Looks mad cool tho. But one 3d display is enough for now :D

    “Bart, maybe he was talkin out of ……”

    you see…

  • 11 Helifax // Jul 1, 2010 at 20:20

    for Thomasjn :

    I finished building my rig on water cooling. I used a Thermaltake Xaser VI case (black+red) ofc. Unfortunately atm I have only one GTX 295 card installed. I can provide any tests result that you want, even a small clip on how my rig looks if you are interested. The results can be in plain 2D and in 3D (for viewing with 3d Vision glasses).


  • 12 Bloody // Jul 1, 2010 at 20:31

    A video of the system would be nice for a start ;)

  • 13 Helifax // Jul 1, 2010 at 22:41

    I will do a clip then:D for start. In my above comment, I didn’t quite expressed properly what I meant. I was trying to say that the results I can provide, if anyone is interested, can be done by benchmarking in 2D or in 3D, or both, so the results can express exactly what is the difference in performance in 2D and in 3D. Hope this cuts off any ambiguities that otherwise are understood:))

  • 14 Helifax // Jul 2, 2010 at 16:36

    I finally had some time to make a video with my gaming rig, Sorry for the shaky hand:)) I used the camera from my samsung smartphone which made a decent movie of 720×480 but I think the shaky image is because of it. Anyway, enough with the why’s, here is the clip. Hope you like it!


    Ps: Now, if anyone wants some test results, it can be done;))

    not working acer x110 :( pls help meeeeee

  • 16 Bolton nurseries // Nov 17, 2010 at 11:44

    Yes i have just bought the Acer x110 and the 3d vidia kit thinking they would work, but apparently it wont! It was a mistake on the Nvidia website.. its the Acer x1110 that costs only £50 more that works.. wish i’d have known!!!!!
    Will they ever support it.. i can’t see why not??
