According to the download page, AMD's recently launched Radeon Pro Duo already completely lacks 32-bit Windows support, and the company is only providing 64-bit drivers. The move makes common sense. Most of AMD’s Radeon R9 and Fury series GPUs feature 4 GB or more of video memory, and 64-bit Windows users making up the most of the rest. Hard to find anyone who will run 32-bit Windows for games.

Excuse me? I have two cards. How does AMD dare to do this to me.

When ever I'll get my hands on a supercomputer, all I'd want to do with it is watch two gifs at the same time.

First it was our nanometers.

Now our 32 bit drivers?

Everything really DID change when the fire nation attacked.



On topic:
Really is about time this happened, outside of the few legacy systems, 32 bit as a whole with Windows seems to have been mostly phased out.

Unless you have really old hardware, who is running a system with a dedicated graphics card and a 32-bit OS?
