We had earlier reported that NVIDIA will not be releasing any new features for its 32-bit driver version. Today the company confirmed that it is going to stop developing new features and performance improvements for its 32-bit operating system drivers.

The company announced the decision to focus completely on 64-bit platforms. The 32-bit operating system includes Windows 7, 8.1, and Windows 10 which will no longer be receiving any new updates or performance enhancements from NVIDIA.

The build 390 was the last update for the 32-bit operating systems. NVIDIA will no longer release drivers for 32-bit operating systems 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,” NVIDIA explained in a blog post.

The company announced that it will, however, be releasing critical security updates for its 32-bit operating system drivers up until January next year. The company also confirmed that new features, bug fixes and enhancements for the Game Ready Driver will be available for 64 bit operating systems starting April 2018.

The decision of NVIDIA to stop pushing new features for its 32-bit operating system drivers does not come as a surprise since the 32 bit operating systems have lost ground over a period of time with Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system also requiring users to have a 64-bit operating system driver for enhanced performance.
