3D Vision Surround Technology System Requirements

 
 
  • Operating System
    • Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Motherboard
    • SLI motherboard is required for all SLI configurations. NVIDIA recommends PCI-E 2.0 x16 motherboard for the best peformance. Please make sure you have updated your motherboard SBIOS to be the latest one.
    • GeForce GTX 295 cards do not require an SLI motherboard and work on all compatible motherboards
  • System Memory
    • 2GB is required (4GB is recommended for 64-bit operating systems)
  • Supported GPUs and connectors requiremenets
  • Note: the current driver only supports 3-way SLI on GeForce GTX 400 series. A future driver will add support for 3-way on GTX 200 series.

Connector Recommendations
The following table illustrates a recommended connector diagram. Your individual system configuration may vary depending upon your PC, GPU, and Surround mode.

Note: the pictures below are based upon NVIDIA reference designs. Partner boards may vary slightly.

Note: This is only supported in
Surround (2D) or using 3D Vision
Surround with projectors only,
it is not supported with 3D Vision
Surround with 3D LCDs
Quad SLI*

You can reconfigure the display
connections to get an Accessory
Display on this Quad SLI group,
but it will result in lower 3D
performance than adding an
additional GPU. A connector

Quad SLI*

* Please note that in the first Beta driver for 3D Vision Surround, we do not recommend running GeForce GTX 295 Quad SLI because there are bugs in the driver which may result in system instability. We will be providing a future driver update to support this configuration.
