Things need to move forward, and while it is true that there are still some users who are still playing from Windows 7 or Windows 8, most computers will soon stop supporting. It is a cycle that cannot be skipped as technology advances at an endless pace.
And that of course applies to Windows and gaming graphics cards. Even though official support for versions 7 and 8 is now over, NVIDIA Continued To Release Updates For Its Drivers
NVIDIA says goodbye to Windows 7 and 8
And has the company confirmed that support for these operating systems is coming to an end and there are no plans to release any further updates to their drivers. If you want to continue using its graphics, you need to upgrade to Windows 10. End of support will come in October of this year.
Here is the statement the company launched to educate its users:
Updates to Game Ready drivers, including performance improvements, new features, and bug fixes, will be available exclusively for systems using Windows 10 as the operating system. Critical security updates will be available on systems running Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 through September 2024.
Of course, just because these systems are no longer supported doesn’t mean that games will stop working or anything like that, they will just stop receiving enhancements and security fixes.
