Default [180.27] What the difference in pkg0 and pkg1

I try download last pre-release driver founded here, but I see a lot of files (as pkg0, pkg1, pkg2, etc).
What the difference of each one?

Best regards,
Renato

The package suffix ('-pkg#') is used to distinguish between packages
containing the same driver, but with different precompiled kernel interfaces.
The file with the highest package number is suitable for most installations.

Related to this:
Why does pkg0 not ask for 32-bit compatibility, yet pkg2 does?

pkg1 features a set of precompiled kernel interfaces and pkg2 features 32-bit compatibility libraries.
