AMD goes CUDA?

Postby tomb » Mon Nov 16, 2015 12:16 pm

Slightly off-topic perhaps, but I stumbled upon this article today:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/9792/amd- ... r-amd-gpus

Interesting development indeed - I wonder what chipsets/OSs will be supported and how this will affect OpenCL in the longer run.
Also interesting to see if this will be a true portable "CUDA" or just a set of tools to simplify porting existing CUDA code to this new
"HIP" thingy and if so how easy it is to use in practice.

I guess a desperate situation require a desperate move :roll:

Anyway, with SPIR-V abstraction layer, you can run pretty much anything (C++, CUDA C/C++, HSA or whatever) on any hardware ... it is Java VM for GPUs :mrgreen:
