Nvidia to drop 32-bit support, only 64-bit drivers will get updates starting next month

Nvidia has announced that it will be dropping support for 32-bit operating systems at the end of this month (April 2018.) This means that only 64-bit systems will get Game Ready software and driver updates, though critical security updates will still be provided for 32-bit systems through January 2019 (via Bleeping Computer.)

The company has a dedicated support page for the matter, where it is explained that users with 32-bit systems will still get to use GeForce Experience game settings, though without any updates. The change impacts multiple operating systems, including Windows 7, 8.1, 10, Linux, and Free BSD.

This is not much of a surprising move from Nvidia, especially since most modern operating systems are now 64-bit by default. Still, this might alienate some PC gamers, so feel free to sound off and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
