Cool thing is SideFx are contributors to it, uncool thing is that Pixar only show it in Katana and Maya and Presto.

It seems to get the performance by streaming the data to the GPU.

Yep GPU's have a lot of cores so you can do parallel operations

Interestingly enough, new release of Metal form Apple is already supporting USD geometry . It can have bigger impact, than just film industry.
