The minimum requirement for GPU drivers will soon be 64-bit

Now it seems like the 32-bit support from Nvidia is coming to an end. It’s simply over for their 32-bit support.

For all drivers coming out after 390 (the latest stable is 388.71) will not be released in 32-bit versions for any GPU from Nvidia company. The latest version will not be able to get installed on a 32-bit systems, as written on Nvidia’s support page.

Critical driver errors will still be corrected until January 2019

Driver enhancements implemented into the newer drivers will not be implemented in drivers older than edition 390. However, Nvidia promises to correct critical driver failures until January 2019. So it really seems like the 32-bit mainstream operating systems will be left in the dark.

Nvidia seems to be a horse that only demands more and more, while optimizing isn’t the feature of what they do anymore. Many of the newer Windows operating system versions like Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 is still used. Same for Windows 7 which is still more popular than Windows 10. Nvidia is also blocking underground operating systems like MorphOS or AmigaOS 4 to evolve. Instead these choose to apply for ATI Radeon support because of a much milder driver source policies there.

The change applies to the following operating systems

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