It seems that manufacturers of computer hardware begins to tire fuss with 32 – and 64-bit operating systems. The need to develop software for each of the two versions is distracting from other more important tasks and makes you waste precious developer time on, nobody needs a 32-bit version of the software. So, on its official website NVIDIA announced that in the near future no support 32-bit operating systems.

The official website saysthat support for 32-bit operating systems exclude, starting with drivers 390. The manufacturer notes that the new drivers will not work on 32-bit OS, so we should abandon their use for the correct operation of the equipment. The changes will affect Windows 7, Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10, Linux and FreeBSD, so anyone who uses graphics solutions from NVIDIA, continuing to “sit” on 32-bit systems, it is recommended to switch to 64-bit OS in the near future.

The developers note that a critical security patch for 32-bit systems will continue to come out until January 2019, after which support will cease fully.
