NVIDIA officially discontinues game-ready driver support for its Kepler line of GPUs

In a recent development, the world’s largest graphics card maker, NVIDIA, has just announced that it will officially be discontinuing specific game-ready driver support for the Kepler Family of GPUs manufactured since 2012.

The company today announced the discontinuation of its GeForce GTX 600 series, as well as a hefty portion of the GeForce 700 series GPUs, which has officially been discontinued by NVIDIA.

The following list of cards are no longer supported by NVIDIA:

  • TITAN family of GPUs: GeForce GTX TITAN, GeForce GTX TITAN Black, GeForce GTX TITAN Z
  • GeForce 700 series of GPUs: GeForce GTX 780 Ti, GeForce GTX 780, GeForce GTX 770, GeForce GTX 760, GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM), GeForce GT 740, GeForce GT 730, GeForce GT 720, GeForce GT 710
  • GeForce 600 series of GPUs: GeForce GTX 690, GeForce GTX 680, GeForce GTX 670, GeForce GTX 660 Ti, GeForce GTX 660, GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST, GeForce GTX 650 Ti, GeForce GTX 650, GeForce GTX 645, GeForce GT 640, GeForce GT 635, GeForce GT 630

The only GeForce 700 series GPUs that will still maintain support are the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, GeForce GTX 750, and GeForce GTX 745. These series are all based on NVIDIA’s Maxwell architecture, and not the previous Kepler architecture.

Kepler is the codename for a GPU microarchitecture developed by NVIDIA, first introduced at retail in April 2012, as the successor to the Fermi microarchitecture. Kepler was Nvidia’s first microarchitecture to focus on energy efficiency. Most GeForce 600 series, most GeForce 700 series, and some GeForce 800M series GPUs were based on Kepler, all manufactured in 28 nm. Kepler also found use in the GK20A, the GPU component of the Tegra K1 SoC, as well as in the Quadro Kxxx series, the Quadro NVS 510, and Nvidia Tesla computing modules. Kepler was followed by the Maxwell microarchitecture and used alongside Maxwell in the GeForce 700 series and GeForce 800M series.

The architecture is named after Johannes Kepler, a German mathematician and key figure in the 17th-century scientific revolution.

however, the company also announced that it will continue to offer for its Kepler series GPUs at least for the time being, but, the company has chosen to continue offering bug fixes, enhancements to performance, and any additional feature support in the future.
