AMD Could Be Dropping 32-bit Support for Radeon Software

Although AMD has done pretty well lately in regards to its driver releases that support the latest technology and video game titles, it looks like the company could be dropping 32-bit support rather soon. Various individuals over at the source link below have noted that when visiting the download center for AMD drivers and clicking on the 32-bit link for some of the Windows 8.1 and 10 drivers, a knowledge-base article about 32-bit support is now displayed. The article, which is listed as GPU-622, is titled “AMD Radeon R9 Fury, R9 300 & R7 300 Support for 32 Bit Operating Systems” and lists information about the GPUs providing “the highest levels of performance, visual accuracy and stability on 64 bit platforms.” While the 32-bit drivers in question are able to be found with some URL guessing, it seems quite evident that AMD is looking to focus its efforts primarily on 64-bit drivers in the near future, especially with its upcoming products. This seems true when looking at the company's recently launched Radeon Pro Duo GPU, which only offers 64-bit drivers at this time.
