The last set of drivers with support for 32-bit systems will be the September issue Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.9.3 that in early October, got the certificate test lab Microsoft WHQL.

The decision of AMD to stop supporting 32 bit operating systems is quite justified, given their low prevalence.
