Always Have the Latest 3D Vision Game Profiles with Nvidia Update

July 14th, 2012 · 3 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

If you are still not using the Nvidia Update feature of the more recent graphics drivers then it is about time you start doing so as starting this month (July) Nvidia has started to release 3D Vision profile updates through it. By default, Nvidia Update will check for all updates for Nvidia software including drivers and profiles, but just to make sure you can go to the Preferences tab of the Nvidia Update (if installed you should see an Nvdia logo icon in the Windows Taskbar) and see if under Updates the option Program and game profiles is enabled (it should by default).

Thanks to the automatically updated profiles you can always stay up to date and not have to wait for a new driver to be released in order to get better support for a game or to get proper 3D Vision support for a new title when played in stereoscopic 3D mode with 3D Vision. Here is a recent example, the latest WHQL driver did not include a 3D Vision profile for the game The Secret World, the latest beta did have a profile, but it rated the game as Not Recommended and if you are using the Nvidia Update to get the latest 3D Vision profiles there is an updated profile for The Secret World where the game is already rated as Good.

    I’m using the 3D Vision Emitter Emulator and 306.97 drivers (the emulator doesn’t work with newest). Should updating Game Profiles add the newest games included in latest drivers? I don’t seem to have profiles for FIFA 13, NFS Most Wanted or Black Ops 2 to name a few. Is there a way I can play these without updating the drivers? Thanks!

    If you are using the Nvidia Update you can have only the game profiles updated, even though you are not using the latest video drivers.
