In this video, AMD’s Joe Macri describes the company’s HSA architecture (formerly known as Fusion). Recorded at the 2012 DesignCon conference in Santa Clara.
The architectural path for the future is clear,” Macri declared. That path will be paved with the programming patterns established on Symmetric Multi-Processor (SMP) systems migrating to the heterogeneous world. The architecture will be open, with published specifications and an open source execution software stack, and heterogeneous cores would be able to work together seamlessly in coherent memory, with low latency dispatch and no software fault lines.
