NVIDIA Also Ending 32-Bit OS Drivers

Almost forgot this was announced along with the ending of Fermi-GPU driver support; NVIDIA will cease releasing drivers for 32-bit operating system this month, though like with Fermi-GPUs, critical security updates will be delivered through January 2019. This will impact Windows 7, 8/8.1, 10, Linux, and FreeBSD, so if you are running any of these systems and are still using the 32-bit version, your NVIDIA driver support will be ending soon. Many modern games already require 64-bit operating systems though, and you should be installing the 64-bit drivers if that is what you are running, so the number of impacted gamers should hopefully be small. Still, if you are running a 32-bit system with a GTX 400 or 500 series GPU, you might need to look into upgrading if you want to continue receiving driver upgrades.
