In driver 334.89 NVIDIA introduced a new proprietary rendering mode for 3D Vision that enables us to improve the 3D experience for many key DirectX 10 and 11 games. This mode is now called “3D Compatibility Mode”. We have continued to iterate on this feature in driver 344.11, increasing game support and adding some new interface elements. You can get the new driver at www.geforce.com/drivers or via the update option in Geforce Experience.
With the release of 344.11, new 3D Compatibility Mode support has been added for the following games:
• Assassin’s Creed: Freedom City - rated as Excellent
• Halo: Spartan Assault - rated as Excellent
• Murdered Soul Suspect - rated as Excellent
• Sniper Elite 3 - rated as Excellent
The memo notes that you see in the lower right corner of the screen when you launch a game in 3D have been tweaked to reflect what mode is active when launching a new game or after using the toggle mechanism to turn Compatibility Mode on/off. And, a new rating category has been added to the control panel to separate ratings for 3D Vision and Compatibility Mode options. You can view this by selecting View Ratings for Games in the Stereoscopic menu in the NVIDIA control panel.
Note: Games with 3D Compatibility Mode will launch in this mode by default. To change the render mode back to standard 3D Vision mode, simply press CRTL-ALT-F11 while in-game. Press CRTL-ALT-F11 again to switch back to 3D Compatibility Mode. (To activate this toggle capability, you will need to ensure that Advanced In-game Settings is enabled in the control panel, before you start the game. Go to Control Panel > Stereoscopic 3D > Set up stereoscopic 3D > Set Keyboard Shortcuts > Show advanced in-game settings, and check “Enable advanced in-game settings”. )

• Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - rated as Fair
• Dead Rising 3 - Not recommended
• F1 2014 - rated as Good
• GRID Autosport - rated as 3D Vision Ready
