NVIDIA and ATI are always battling each other to be first with products. It’s common for one of the companies to launch something and then the other to come out with something similar shortly after. Such is the case when ATI launched its multi screen tech. NVIDIA announced its own called 3D Vision Surround.
NVIDIA announced today on its official blog that the driver to enable 3D Vision surround has been delayed. The driver was originally expected in April and NVIDIA has now announced that it will not have the driver ready until the end of June.
Tom Peterson form NVIDIA wrote, “The fact is we are not ready yet – the surround driver needs some final improvements. When we first showed this technology live at CES in January, we expected this to become available with the first release of our 256 branch driver which was then targeted for April. Our new target for 3D Vision Surround is the end of June in a follow-on release of this 256 driver branch. Our first 256 based driver is planned to post to nvidia.com on May 24th and will enable new SLI setup controls and improve performance on several key applications for GTX 400 GPUs.”
