New Nvidia Video and 3D Vision Driver Version 266.58 WHQL Available

January 18th, 2011 · 13 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Today Nvidia has released the first WHQL driver from the R265 series after the not long ago released first beta at the beginning of this month. The new 266.58 WHQL driver does have a few additions as compared to what was announced with the earlier beta 266.35, so if you have the beta installed already, then you should also upgrade to the WHQL. This is currently just a driver release and not a full 3D Vision Driver CD, but such should be soon available too, so you may need to download separately the IR USB emitter driver if it stops working after you update the driver.

The new 266.58 driver includes support for the upcoming Acer GN245HQ and Acer HN274H 3D Vision-ready LCD monitors that will have built-in 3D Vision IR emitters and that will support both DL DVI for frame sequential stereo 3D as well as HDMI 1.4a for consumer electronic devices that support stereo 3D. The driver also introduces support for the new 3D Vision All-in-On PC ASUS ET2400XVT. Aside from the 3DVisionLive.com photo and video streaming support that was updated in the beta driver, the new WHQL one also comes with improved scaling quality with video streaming content from the 3D portal, so the 3D videos you watch using there will look with smoother edges instead of more blocky ones. Another good news is that the new driver also fixes the problem with the game Call of Duty that was showing with 3DTV Play when you activate the “iron sights mode” (zooming down the weapon) that I’ve mentioned some time ago.

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.

This just came out right before the 2010 PGA Championship live streaming in 3D starts. The CD v1.34 contains the new GeForce GPU driver v259.32 beta and NVIDIA 3D Vision driver v259.32 beta. The update adds 3D Vision streaming support for Firefox 4 and Google Chrome web browsers as well as the 3D Vision profiles released in the 1.33 beta driver from few days ago. Lets hope that this driver also fixes the issues that some people had with Silverlight-based 3D Vision streaming when stopping the stream, as well as SLI configurations not being supported…
