3D Vision 196.21 Driver Released Beta Support for 3-way and Quad SLI, DirectX 8, 9, & 10.
Today NVIDIA posted the matching 3D Vision 196.21 driver to the 196.21 GeForce driver.

If you have previously installed the GeForce driver, you can simply download the 3D Vision 196.21 and install it. Or you can download the entire CD 1.20 kit which includes both drivers.

This driver adds the following features:[list]
[*]New 3D Vision game profiles[list]
[*]Dark Void. Please note it is recommended that you disable dynamic shadows for this game.
[/list]
[*]Adds Beta support for NVIDIA 3-way and Quad SLI for Microsoft DirectX 8, 9, and 10 applications.
[*]New 120Hz panel support[list]
[*]Adds support for Alienware OptX AW2310 120Hz LCD.
[*]Adds support for Acer GD245HQ/GD235HZ 120Hz LCDs.
[/list]
[*]Fixed a bug with the driver that prevented Generic DLP mode from working. This should allow Samsung DLP users the ability to use 3D Vision again.
[*]Fixed a bug that prevented CRT users from using 3D Vision. The Setup Wizard should now properly detect CRTs if it properly reports its timing to the operating system

Unfortunately this driver does not provide tri/quad sli support. Other users and myself have tested and can confirm this. Same story as the last set of drivers, only DX10 titles are utilising quad sli. No direct x9 titles, NOT ONE will work with quad sli whilst 3d vision is enabled.

Andrew is aware of the issue, and im hoping the issue will be resolved soon.

Is this tri/quad sli support only for 3d vision or for regular 2d as well? I can't get the SLI enabled indicator bar to come up even with 2d in the games I have tried.

After upgrading to this newest driver, my computer no longer detects my 3D DLP (Samsung HL67A750). Is this a known issue with this driver relase??

If they are beta why does it say "CD v1.23 (GeForce GPU driver v197.13, NVIDIA 3D Vision driver v197.13) WHQL" (win 7 64 bit, gtx 295, uk)?

so is it beta or whql?
