Nvidia to drop 32bit game support in 445.87

Recommended Posts

Not exactly. They are not releasing new drivers for 32-bit OS's. Dont know of anyone that uses one.
 

"32-bit Operating SystemsBeginning with Release 396,

NVIDIA is no longer releasing Game Ready drivers for 32-bit operating systems for any GPU architecture."

Oh Well. They are still going to have the 32bit drivers available for download in there library just like they always have. I can still download drivers for my old GeForce4 MX440 or RIVA 128 directly off of there site. Just click Legacy in the drop down box.

 

My 2 year old netbook and spare PC both have Win 10 pro 32 bit on them.  I run Kodi and a couple game emulators that I can only get to work on a 32bit OS.  Kodi does have a 64bit client in beta but I tried it and it's buggy as hell. Constant crashing,disconnects and alot of the features are just non functional. Don't plan on upgrading either 1 to 64bit.

 

Does that mean that Windows will no longer update Win 10 32bit as well?

Windows 10 32bit will still get updates. In the future it will be discontinued, currently it is still around for legacy support although allot of 32bit programs will run on 64bit windows.

Nvidia and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues with certain versions of Nvidia display adapter drivers and Windows 10, version 2004 (the Windows 10 May 2020 Update). Windows 10 devices with affected Nvidia display driver versions might receive a stop error with a blue screen or other issues during or after installing the update to Windows 10, version 2004. The affected drivers are any version lower than 358.00.
