Seems highly likely that the 180 driver will be released the same day as Adobe CS4 on November 7th 2008

What are your thoughts?

Why is this driver different? I have heard some people talk about it.

can some one explain.

Because there were some leaked NVIDIA powerpoint slides that had a timeline

Right around now it said "Big Bang II"

And the driver features listed, among others were multi-monitor SLI support, performance boosts, quality boosts, other stuff.

does CS4 use cuda?

Yes! All of CS4 does! :D

Premiere requires a Quadro card AFAIK, which is LAME!

i'm sure someone will figure out a way around that

However one of the major features touted in the release is the support of PhysX processing on dedicated GPU. This will enable a Geforce 8 or 9 series card act as a Physics Processing Unit (PPU).

this is already in motion, and it is working

I don't see how this would be a big deal. If there is a large revision change, it will be explicitly because of the reasons stated above, for Adobe CS4. There probably won't be any other big changes. Its just a number.

Not really, Its via OpenGL for the most part, which doesnt require a NV GPU atm.

That link doesnt state that they use CUDA at all.
There might be third party plugins that can use CUDA though, but I wouldnt expect Adobe to hinge any of their base functionallity of their software on CUDA really.

EDIT:
Linkage: http://www.custompc.co.uk/news/604905/video-adobe-introduces-gpu-acceleration-to-creative-suite-4.html

Photoshop CS4 allows GPU acceleration on any mainstream Shader Model 3.0 GPU. Built on OpenGL, Photoshop CS4's GPU features allow real-time rotation of images and accelerated zooming and panning. As well as this, Photoshop CS4 also uses the GPU for anti-aliasing on text and objects, and it can tap the GPU for brushstroke previews, HDR tone mapping and colour conversion.

Interestingly, Nvidia is also planning to extend the features in Adobe’s Creative Suite 4 through plug-ins written in its own CUDA language, rather than OpenGL.
