Some of you might have seen the discuss about NVIDIA license changes
targeting commercial usage of GeForce cards in very large data centers.

We’ve talked a bit to NVIDIA over the holidays. They never had the
intention of targeting academic usage, but since I mentioned it was likely
very important to all of you that there is an on-the-record statement about
this, I’m very happy they came through quickly. This is an on-the-record
statement you can share.

Basically - all academic usage is fine.

We have received inquiries asking whether GeForce and TITAN GPUs can be
used in academic servers. The answer is yes.

NVIDIA pioneered GPU computing with a vision of democratizing high
performance computing.
Our GPUs have become an important tool for scientists worldwide and we
support their use of GeForce and TITAN in non-commercial academic research.
