The Heterogeneous System Architecture: It's (Not) All About The GPU

The use of GPUs in computation intensive tasks has had an ever increasing impact across all platforms. At the same time, GPUs have several properties that make it a challenge to unlock their full benefit in many real-world applications. The HSA was created to address many of these current shortcomings while providing a great update for already established software models. Learn more in this GPGPU7 keynote by Paul Blinzer, chairperson of the System Architecture Workgroup of the HSA Foundation.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About HSA*

What is Heterogeneous System Architecture? Why does it matter? In this whitepaper, Insight 64 Research Fellow Nathan Brookwood explains why, even if HSA doesn’t entirely change your life, it will change the way you use your desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone and the cloud.

hUMA - the Next Big Thing in Processors

The HSA Foundation has released a new multicore architecture specification called hUMA or heterogeneous uniform memory access. hUMA allows CPUs and GPUs to share the same memory in a heterogeneous system architecture (HSA). hUMA makes it easier for developers to create apps that use the individual powers of CPUs and GPUS and is compatible with mainstream programming languages like Python, C++ & Java. You'll soon be able to see hUMA in action in AMD’s Kaveri processors.
