Nvidia will stops supporting Windows 7 and 8

It's been more than 11 years since Windows 7 was first launched, and shortly before its twelfth anniversary, the Nvidia graphics card producer will stop supporting the legacy operating system.

In a support plan post for Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1, Nvidia revealed that As of October 2021, Game Ready Driver upgrades, including performance improvements, new features, and bug fixes, will be available exclusively for systems using Windows 10 as their operating system.

Fortunately, this does not mean that Nvidia is ignoring Windows versions, just because after the last update focused on performance on August 31, 2021, they will continue to implement critical security updates that will be available on systems running Windows 7, Windows 8, or even Windows 8.1 September 2024.

On January 14, 2020, Microsoft officially ended support for Windows 7, so it's surprising, if welcome, that Nvidia continues to provide support for so long, and once graphics card support ends, there will be fewer and fewer reasons to stay on the old operating system, and with Windows 11 on the horizon, there is a chance to skip Windows 10 entirely.
