New Beta 3D Vision Driver Full CD v1.15 Beta Available

October 30th, 2009 · 4 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


Nvidia has just released a new beta 3D Vision Driver Full CD v1.15 that combines GeForce GPU driver version 195.39 and NVIDIA 3D Vision driver version 195.39 BETA drivers available for Windows Vista and Windows 7, 32-bit and 64-bit. One of the most interesting features in this driver release is the addition of three new 3D Vision officially compatible DLP projectors from Acer and these are: Acer X1130P, Acer X1261 and Acer H5360. The official compatibility and being listed as supported by the drivers means that yo should not have problems running the projectors for playing games, watching movies and looking through pictures in stereoscopic 3D mode. This is very important, because if the projectors are not officially compatible (like with the new BenQs that should be technologically compatible, but not issue free) you may have trouble setting them up to be used with GeForce 3D Vision!

Aside from the new DLP projectors support (the new ViewSonic models are still not officially supported too!), the new 3D Vision driver version 195.39 also updates some game profiles and of course some new profiles for games that that came out recently or are going to be released soon, so that the compatibility when playing them in S3D mode is ensured.

Updated 3D Vision game profiles
– Call of Juarez – DX10 smoke fixed
– Civilization 4 – convergence fixed
– Command and Conquer – Red Alert 3 – water rendering fix
– F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate – fixed fire rendering
– Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising – rendering halo fix

New iZ3D 1.10 Release Candidate 2 Drivers

September 15th, 2009 · No Comments · Other S3D Tech


Finally we have a new RC2 version of IZ3D’s drivers after some quite long wait, because the previous RC1 was released in may and the new version is dated 9th September, but was made available online just now on the website. If you are new to IZ3D’s drivers you should know that they do not only provide Stereoscopic 3D support for IZ3D’s monitors using two LCD panels and polarized glasses, but also support quite a few other S3D methods and thus a lot of different hardware including shutter glasses and the free anaglyph mode. Unfortunately the shutter support is still not final and thus is not perfect so the owners of shutter glasses and HMDs like i-Glasses or Z800 will have to wait a bit more (version 2.0 probably, or not?). Anyway, here is what is new in the iZ3D 1.10 Release Candidate 2 Drivers:

[+] Added profiles for “Call Of Cthulhu DCoTE”, “Call of Juarez – Bound in Blood”,

Overlord 2, HAWX.

[+] Third-part d3d9.dll support added.
[+] Added additional Side By Side modes (maybe helpful for video recording).
[+] Added gap control between views in Side By Side mode to Config.xml.
[+] Added customizable matrices mode to Anaglyph mode.
