NVidia releases a new beta GeForce driver to support 3D Vision Surround

NVidia has released the GeForce v258.69 beta driver, which will add support for 3D Vision Surround. 3D Vision Surround allows for certain system setups to display 3D graphics across three monitors.

To make use of the driver you will need three identical 3D Vision compatible displays, two NVidia GTX 260 or better graphics cards running in SLI (the GeForce GTX 295 in Quad SLI is not supported as of yet), a pair of NVidia 3D Vision glasses and Windows 7. Windows Vista and below are not supported.
