Nvidia Forceware drivers 260.89 offer Blu-ray 3D support

By on October 18, 2010, 12:20 PM
Just last week Nvidia distributed a beta version of their Forceware drivers 260.89. The main feature was support for their recently launched GeForce GT 430, and although a few other improvements were mentioned there was nothing really outstanding. This time around the company offers the final release of these drivers with pretty much the same improvements, plus support for playing back Blu-ray 3D discs when connecting your GPU to a 3D TV through HDMI.

There is also HD audio for Blu-ray movies, Nvidia 3D Vision improvements and SLI performance enhancements for a couple of games. These drivers, like most Nvidia final releases, have WHQL certification in other words Microsoft has approved them for compatibility by tests done through their Windows Hardware Quality Labs.

The Forceware drivers 260.89 are a recommended download especially if you have a 400 series GeForce. For complete release notes please go here or if you are ready to download choose your operating system below:

Desktop: Windows XP 32-bit | Windows XP 64-bit | Windows Vista/7 32-bit | Windows Vista/7 64-bit

Notebook: Windows XP 32-bit | Windows XP 64-bit | Windows Vista/7 32-bit | Windows Vista/7 64-bit
