XP drivers still available, dunno if they support Maxwell second generation though because 4GB memory and XP can’t fully address that because of 32bit limitations.
Nvidia Geforce 344.16 beta drivers, GTX 980 & GTX 970 only.
Actually the 344.11 XP drivers seem to work fine with my new GTX 970 under XP. Something people don’t realize with video RAM is that it is virtualized, and an application only sees a small “window” of that RAM.
Even under Windows 8.1 x64, Device Manager only shows about 64MB of total address space (one 32-MB chunk and two 16-MB chunks, as well as the legacy VGA address space) used, and all of that is in the first 4GB of address space.
344.24 WHQL driver for GTX 980M/GTX 970M
GeForce 344.48 WHQL drivers released.
It looks like that nvidia removed these entries:
NVIDIA_DEV.13C0 = “NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980”
NVIDIA_DEV.13C2 = “NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970”
in 344.48 driver
No more support for GTX 9xx under WinXP?!
may, but it looks like the 344.11 drivers still support 970/980
Ok, after driver mod, 344.48 works fine.
Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD driver 346.16 (beta)
