CUDA is gpu computing for Geforce (Nvidia) only and available for OS X, Linux + Win.
Toast 11 (mac) for example uses CUDA(Mac) to speedup h.264 encoding.

http://developer.nvi...oolkit-41#MacOS (10.6.8+ needed)

For Enduser usage you only need the CUDA driver, not the SDK.
Dev driver is named: devdriver_4.1.21_macos.dmg (last was 4.0.50)

To check CUDA on OS X you can use CUDA-Z tool (DL at the end) which shows informations about the CUDA gpu and has small CUDA (VRAM + PCI Transfer speed) benchmark.

So:
Using this driver. Is it possible to allow notebooks with CUDA Powered GPUs like -> NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M, to work with native full speed and full feature, as we would have on Windows 7 for example ( Original supplied OS ) ?

Yes, if you have software (OS X) that uses CUDA. No, if you use software which does not use CUDA.
CUDA is independed from OpenGL - doesnt give more OpenGL power.

This CUDA version is not enabling the function, at least in my machine. The current version 4.05 does work, though.
