During XDC last week, we talked about that with an NVIDIA developer (ie. working for NVIDIA, not on Nouveau). CUDA is a bit complex: it's not only a library but also a toolchain. This is a lot of effort and, as a company, they probably won't port/maintain it except if FreeBSD customers are asking for it. However, this developer will see if libOpenCL.so can be compiled on FreeBSD and shipped with nvidia-driver. It could just be a matter of enabling the build. -- Jean-Sébastien Pédron
