Is Fermi under legacy support or not?

First we have this message on forums and official annoncement:

Fermi-based GPUs are no longer supported starting with release 396. These GPUs will continue to be supported through the release 390 legacy branch, which will receive critical bug fixes and updates for compatibility with new Linux kernels and X server versions through the end of 2022.

See for a list of Fermi-based GPUs.

But then we have the latest Linux driver announcement here: NVIDIA DRIVERS Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) Display Driver

which has the following chips among the supported products section:

GeForce 700 Series:

GeForce GTX 780 Ti, GeForce GTX 780, GeForce GTX 770, GeForce GTX 760, GeForce GTX 760 Ti (OEM), GeForce GTX 750 Ti, GeForce GTX 750, GeForce GTX 745, GeForce GT 740, GeForce GT 730, GeForce GT 720, GeForce GT 710

GeForce 600 Series:

GeForce GTX 690, GeForce GTX 680, GeForce GTX 670, GeForce GTX 660 Ti, GeForce GTX 660, GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST, GeForce GTX 650 Ti, GeForce GTX 650, GeForce GTX 645, GeForce GT 640, GeForce GT 635, GeForce GT 630

So is Fermi under legacy support or not? Is GT 730 supported by new driver or not. Since it is on both lists. In first announcement it says that last driver that will support it is 3.90, but in the 460.80 driver page it clearly says that latest driver supports it.

There are Kepler based GT730s and Fermi based ones. Use lspci to check for the chip used (GK… or GF…)

i knew about some made with Kepler. But i didn’t know that 600 series also had a different architecture. i don’t understand why hide such information that impacts on support years from consumers. it is not on the box. also i don’t understand how can same model number have completely different architecture and if it does why not make it clear on driver support side that only the Kepler models are supported. perhaps because there is no easy way for consumer to know what they bought or how long the product will be supported?!?

mine is fermi from 2016:
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 730] (rev a1)

at the time it was slightly different form other models as it uses 2 Gb Vram and memory clock was also a bit higher than with the rest.
