As expected and previously announced NVIDIA will be ending support for its NVIDIA Geforce drivers for older 32-bit versions of Windows or Linux at the end of April 2018. Although you will still be able to use Geforce drivers on 32-bit operating systems NVIDIA will stop access to new GeForce Experience features and game ready updates. The last security update for the 32-bit Geforce application will roll out in January 2019. So if you are still using older 32-bit operating systems, now might be a good time to start considering an upgrade or moving to a new rig if you are to continue using NVIDIA graphics cards without compromising your system.
“NVIDIA is making the following updates to our operating system support effective April 2018. Drivers: Game Ready Driver upgrades, including performance enhancements, new features, and bug fixes, will be available only on 64-bit operating systems. Critical security updates will be provided for 32-bit operating systems through January 2019. This includes the following operating systems Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows 8/8.1, Microsoft Windows 10, Linux and FreeBSD.
GeForce Experience: Software upgrades with new features, security updates, and bug fixes will be available only on Windows 64-bit operating systems. Existing features and services such as optimal game settings will continue to work on Windows 32-bit operating systems.”
