Nvidia will stop the support for their old “Tesla” Geforce cards

It seems that Nvidia is ready trying to focus their efforts on the new generations and is slowly leaving behind their older cards that don’t have a place on the market. The old "Tesla" cards have lost support from Nvidia.

The latest graphics drivers that will support this generation will be the GeForce 340. A generation that was started by the legendary GeForce 8800 GTX "G80" and whose most recent model was the GeForce GT 340 "GT215". These models will not receive new features and optimizations thanks to a driver. It is speculated that Nvidia will release a “legacy” driver in case these old Tesla graphics cars have to face the demands of the market.

The only thing we do know for sure is that Nvidia will focus all its efforts on its family of GeForce GPUs 400/500/600/700/800 series based on its 3 most recent DirectX 11 graphics architectures: Fermi, Kepler and Maxwell, so these will be the only supported by future drivers.

It seems that this is the end for the old cards based on the DirectX 10 architecture, something that coincides with the imminent presentation of Microsoft’s new DirectX 12 API.

In this increasingly and competitive market, it’s no longer worth investing a single minute in devices that are not commercially viable.
