A week ago at a conference AMD Fusion Developer Summit was represented by a new open initiative Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation, which consisted of AMD, ARM, Texas Instruments, MediaTek, and Imagination. The purpose of HSA Foundation – a unified, open industrial architecture for heterogeneous computing (CPU + GPU), heterogeneous processors that combine two or more different types of processors in a single chip. In discussing the news on the forums Phoronix a member of the AMD, John Bridgeman (John Bridgman) pointed to the presentation , which specifically lists that AMD is going to pass the Open Source under the HSA. turns out, AMD plans to open a full stack, including LLVM, assembler, libraries, runtime-components, and the finalizer kernel driver to be included in Linux distributions .
