New 3D Vision Driver CD version 1.38 is Now Available for Download

November 9th, 2010 · 5 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Today, with the release of the new GeForce GTX 580 GPUs Nvidia has also released new drivers version 262.99, however these apparently only work with the new GPUs. So if you haven’t updated your 3D Vision driver for a while as well as your GPU drivers you can download the 3D Vision Driver CD 1.38 that was released yesterday and that includes the updated drivers version 260.99 WHQL. This driver update is especially important as it includes 3D Vision game profiles for Call of Duty: Black Ops that just got released today as well as Tom Clancy’s HawX 2. The new drivers also add update for new 3D Vision-capable LCD monitors like the Planar SA2311W I’ve already mentioned about here on the blog, as well as Hannstar HS233 and I-O Data 3D231XBR that will soon be available. What I was surprised to find was that the 3D Vision Video Player packed in the release is not the latest version 1.6.4 and is instead is an older installation for 1.6.2, but I suppose this will be quickly resolved. Below is the link for downloading the latest driver CD, but it is not linking to the official Nvidia website, but instead to the new GeForce.com that was just launched in beta, so you can take a quick look at it too.

    Have you noticed whether these updates fix the convergence advanced keys? I haven’t been able to change those settings (ctrl + F5/F6) since the 160.xx betas.

    1.40 is up: http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce-3d-vision-winvista-win7-cd-1.40-whql-driver.html but still with Player 1.6.2 :(

    @Kevin Newman: did you try changing the keys too?

    i’m newer here. i was reading around internet and i start notice that it is possible play 3D games on laptop.

    can you say to me if i can use 3D Vision and play games in 3D with this laptop:

    CPU: core2duo 2.oghz
    GPU: Nvidia 9800M GT
    RAM: 4Gb DDR3

    if i buy an external 120hz lcd will i be able to use 3D Vision and play games in 3D?

    Thanks in advance

    Rui, it depends… the hardware you have available in your laptop is quite good and should be up for the task, although for some more demanding games you will have to lower the details level in stereo 3D mode.

    But in order to be able to use an external 3D LCD monitor together with the laptop you should either have a Dual-Link DVI video port on the laptop or a DisplayPort that can be used along with an active adapter to convert the signal to DL DVI. If you only have HDMI output, then you might have to wait for 3D monitors that will have HDMI input supporting S3d or go for a 3D HDTV.

    @Licaon I did try it, but it didn’t work if I changed to some other button combination. But I did just try it again, and it did work, if I just set it to a singular key. Very odd. Thanks! :-)
