Nvidia will end support for DirectX 10-based video cards, the graphics chip maker announced today. Nvidia told consumers today that the version 340 of its drivers will be the last to support DirectX 10 generation video cards.
"The Release 340 drivers will continue to support these products until April 1, 2016, and the NVIDIA support team will continue to address driver issues for these products in driver branches up to and including Release 340," Nvidia said on its customer support site. "However, future driver enhancements and optimizations in driver releases after Release 340 will not support these products."
At least Nvidia's date for ending support is a long ways off: it will become official in 2016. Cards affected by this decision include the GeForce 8, 9, 100, 200, 300 and 400 series desktop hardware, GeForce 7, 8, 9, 100, 200 and 300 series notebook products, and a number of Tesla and Quadro products.
