Render Curve as hair in Cycles?

Is there a solution to render curve as hair in cylces?
I am trying to import hair animation from other software.It seem perform good when only curves.
If I want to render it, I must convert it to mesh type.
Now with geo nodes(such as Is Viewport node), it is easy.generate curve geometry while render. But with a large numbe of curve, it became very slow. Maybe it can be less cost to generate in render engine?

I wanted that feature as well.

It is being worked on

You’ll be able to use alembic cache (animated curves) and render it as hair when this is finished. But this needs a lot of time and work which means it won’t be finished any time soon.
