Nvidia Plans To Stop 3D Vision Support

3D Vision will stop receiving Nvidia support in April. The 3D glasses system was launched back in 2009, and it appears that the project is finally reaching its end. 3D Vision was used for gaming, and it created the appearance of physical depth.

Next month there will be another GeForce driver release, but this time it will be the last one. However, there will continue to be support for critical driver issues, but this will last only until April 2020. However, the updates will be for 418 instead of newer versions. It appears that this decision will affect other software as well. For instance, the 3D Vision Video Player app will only be available until the end of the year.

Nvidia released a statement in which it explained that support for 3D Vision was dropped in order to focus on more popular technology, such as virtual reality: “We have seen the industry and our user base move to newer forms of immersive experiences such as Virtual Reality, and are focusing our driver support on these newer technologies. We are proud to have supported 3D Vision for over ten years, which launched at CES way back in 2009.”

Nvidia is ending support for low-profile laptop GPUs, besides 3D Vision

3D Vision support is not the only one finished by Nvidia. It appears that the company will also stop supporting laptops powered by a Kepler-series GPU.

“Game Ready driver upgrades, including performance enhancements, new features, and bug fixes, will be available for systems utilizing mobile Maxwell, Pascal, and Turing-series GPUs for notebooks, effective April 2019,” Nvidia explained in a document.
