NVIDIA Ends Driver Support for Kepler GPUs (GTX 700/600 Series) with R470 Drivers
NVIDIA is moving Kepler GPUs to legacy status, which means they will be removed from newer drivers starting with v470.
It’s been nine years since NVIDIA announced its GeForce GTX 600 series of graphics cards, but official support for GPUs based on a Kepler graphics chip (GeForce GTX 700/600 series), will be discontinued after the arrival of the R470 drivers. You will be able to see this confirmed in the table below, available in the manufacturer’s official support documents. Kepler enabled the GTX 600/700 series, which many will remember for the powerful GeForce GTX 780 Ti 6GB GDDR5, which launched an NVIDIA GK110B graphics chip in a 28nm TSMC manufacturing process, delivering a total of 2,880 cores. shading, 240 TMU and 48 ROP at a base / turbo frequency of 875/928 MHz. Associated with its 384-bit memory bus, it offered a bandwidth of 336.6 Gb / s, with a TDP of 250W.
Please note that the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GeForce GTX 750 are not based on the Kepler architecture, but on the Maxwell architecture and, therefore, will not be left unsupported after the R470 drivers.
