Nvidia announced in three official reports that they will stop supporting them in the near future.
Nvidia Ends its driver support from a number of operating systems. The most important news was the end of support for 32-bit operating systems with release of 390 Nvidia drivers. Other news, one about discontinuing driver support for NVS 310 and NVS 315 commercial graphics cards, and the ending of quad-buffered Quad-band stereo features, which will be released with the release of the 396 version.
According to Nvidia, drivers after version 390 will no longer install or run on Windows, Linux, or FreeBSD operating systems. Also, the features and improvements that are released in future releases will not be available for older versions. Nvidia says it will release normal security upgrades by the end of December 2019 and make vital improvements by the end of December 2021 for the 390 version. The 390 version is expected to be available by the end of this month, which is not surprising given the release of the 388.71 version of the GeForce GameRedi in recent days.
Antivirus 310 and antivirus 315 are built for use on commercial computers based on the GF119 Fermi 2.0 graphics chip. This chip is used on the GeForce 510 graphics card, which is designed for use on home computers. Changing the status of a game-specific graphics card can mean that in the near future the driver’s support for these graphics cards will also end; however, these cards do not have the power to play today’s heavy graphics games. Users using older and 32-bit operating systems should upgrade their 64-bit system to continue receiving driver support. In the case of the ANOVA 310 and the Nokia 315, the cards have never been suitable for the game, but users who use the system for commercial use and have security concerns should start thinking about upgrading.
Support for Quadbird’s stereo features, which is related to professional 3D illustrations, will also end from version 396.
