NVIDIA Ending 32-bit Driver Support

NVIDIA announces they are ending driver support for 32-bit operating systems (thanks Ars Technica). Word is devices not running under 64-bit OSes will stop getting new features now, and cease getting security updates in about a year:
After Release 390, NVIDIA will no longer release drivers for 32-bit operating systems1 for any GPU architecture. Later driver release versions will not operate, nor install, on 32-bit operating systems. Driver enhancements, driver optimizations, and operating system features in driver versions after Release 390 will not be incorporated back into Release 390 or earlier versions. This impacts the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows 7
  • Microsoft Windows 8/8.1
  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • Linux
  • FreeBSD

NVIDIA intends to support critical driver security fixes until January 2019. For more details on product security, see http://www.nvidia.com/security.

soon Win7 display driver support will end from both AMD and Nvidia, I have heard internally talk from both companies. Win8.1 support is mostly gone already. it's too expensive to support multiple OSes
If you're a gamer you should have already moved to win10, win8 and win7 both have a vram limit of 4096MB with any game that uses DX9 or below. One of the reasons skyrim likes to thrash like a zombie when you use texture mods.
