Cycles with NVIDIA OptiX

Blender 2.81 supports Nvidia OptiX. It uses the RT cores in the RTX20 seris cards, to accelerate raytraced rendering. With Blender 2.81 it is supported and can accelerate rendering with cycles. Since rhino-cycles currently gets a code rebase, I wonder if this is a rebase to blender 2.80 or 2.81 and if it is to the latest 2.81, will OptiX be available in rhino-cycles as well?

Here are some links regarding OptiX:

It might become available.
