GeForce beta 285.27 also sports a few 3D Vision-related changes, such as new game profiles for Aion, Diablo 3, Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, From Dust, Dirt 3 and others. The beta 285.27 also includes support for viewing and YouTube 3D with SLI-enabled PCs, it also makes windowed mode the default viewing option for 3D Vision Photo Viewer.


Four bug fixes are included for the Windows XP 32- and 64-bit: two are for single-GPU systems and two for multi-GPU builds. The first set are minor software glitches with NVIDIA Update, the other caused a BSOD when playing Adobe Flash content at HD resolutions and then switching to fullscreen mode while the other caused lousy performance in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings when using SLI.
