[Link] Industry Consortium to Tackle Spec for Multicore Software

Posted 21 June 2012 - 08:37 AM



Companies including AMD and ARM have formed a consortium to provide an open specification for software to be written and deployed in a cost-effective manner across multiple hardware configurations, it was announced Tuesday.

The HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) Foundation will provide an open hardware interface specification under which program execution can be easily offloaded to other processing resources available in servers, PCs and mobile devices. The new specification will lead to applications that are portable across architectures, while also enabling workloads to be broken up between CPUs and graphics processors for faster and more power efficient computing.
