As aforementioned R396 supports only 64 bit OS. Ignore the file names.

Quote
Added support for the following GPUs:

    Quadro GV100
    Quadro P3200
    Quadro P4200

Updated the SLI Mosaic configuration page in nvidia-settings to make more layout configurations available, including configurations that do not utilize all of the available displays.
Added reporting of EGL information to nvidia-settings.
Fixed a bug that caused the NV_CTRL_STEREO_SWAP_MODE setting for quad-buffered stereo visuals to not be preserved across modesets or VT switches.
Added a new global X configuration option "AllowExternalGpus", which defaults to disabled, but can be enabled to allow eGPUs and other surprise-removable GPUs to be configured with X screens.
