My initial guess would be that Nvidia dropped full support for a ~10
year old card. They usually only focus on the last 5 years and drop
various 'features' for older cards over time. I say this from running
into this back when EL7 came out and people were having similar
problems where 'it worked in EL6'  and then it didn't after EL7
