Below are the legacy GPUs that are no longer supported in the unified driver.
These GPUs will continue to be maintained through the special legacy NVIDIA
GPU driver releases.

Since ubuntu packages are not still updated to 7664 drivers, the
answer is that your card is still supported.

As you know, all you have to do is installing nvidia-kernel-common,
nvidia-glx and linux-restricted-modules-whateveryourkernelis, and run
the command nvidia-glx enable
