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.

Nvidia Has Released Graphic Drivers Version 285.79 Beta

November 11th, 2011 · 6 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Yesterday Nvidia has released a new beta graphics driver version 285.79 beta with the focus yet again being improving the performance and fixing issues with the game Battlefield 3, without a doubt one of the most played games at the moment. Unfortunately there is still not patch for the game available to enable the stereoscopic 3D support, so we’ll have to wait even more for that to happen. Regarding improvements in 3D Vision support, it is mostly profile/rating updates and new profiles, but nothing that significant…

Added or updated the following 3D Vision game profiles:

– Airline Tycoon 2 – rated Fair
– Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – rated Good
– Batman: Arkham City – updated rating to 3D Vision Ready
– Deus Ex: Human Revolution – rated Excellent
– The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – rated Excellent
– FIFA 12 – rated Good
– Hard Reset – updated rating to 3D Vision Ready
– inMomentum – rated Fair
– The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
– Smash Cars – rated Fair
– Two Worlds 2: Castle Defense – rated Good
– Zombie Driver – rated Excellent

I can say that I’m a bit surprised that the update does not include a profile for the game L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition. Another surprise for me is the fact that currently the game Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is only rated Good and the game should be a native stereo 3D title and officially have support for 3D Vision.
