In this video from SC13, Vinod Tipparaju presents an Heterogeneous System Architecture Overview.

The HSA Foundation seeks to create applications that seamlessly blend scalar processing on the CPU, parallel processing on the GPU, and optimized processing on the DSP via high bandwidth shared memory access enabling greater application performance at low power consumption. The Foundation is defining key interfaces for parallel computation utilizing CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, and other programmable and fixed-function devices, thus supporting a diverse set of high-level programming languages and creating the next generation in general-purpose computing.”

Oracle, Broadcom, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Huawei are among industry-leading organizations recently joining the HSA Foundation to advance open standards for heterogeneous compute programming. Read the Full Story or see more from the show in our SC13 Video Gallery.
