    Well said : huge thanks goes to Nvidia for releasing this like a numeric garbage...
    Nvidia is too good to empty their bin like that...

    What are they expecting from that move ? As said earlier, if only it was made open-source, this would be a real good news...

    Is this for rendering Blender movies and whatnot or something that can be used in games?

    I believe in linux it only supports maya

    In windows it can be used with maya and 3dsmax.

    [EDIT] Upon a quick google, it appears that it can be used with blender with a bit of help
