This is exciting. Besides the obvious (game) maybe you can make things like Photoshop work now? This needs to be tested.

I run Linux mostly for work (databases) but have a Windows can for games. The dream is to be able to abolish it, but performance is not quite there yet + various problems with DRM and the like.

If any graphics card manufacturer could make sure to unlock SR-IOV on their cards someday, however, everything would work out and you would avoid Wine and similar solutions. Nvidia has full support for it on Quadro, but refuses to unlock it on Geforce cards. Sigh. AMD has hinted at this before, but RDNA2 was released without support. Sigh.
