Qualcomm joins HSA Foundation as a founding member
Born nearly four months ago the initiative Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation , Foundation started by amd and oriented computing push the GPU accelerated multi-platform .
HSA Foundation initially born with 5 members: AMD, ARM, Imagination Technologies, MediaTek and Texas Instruments, but over recent months have joined other key members like Samsung , Apical, Arteris, MulticoreWare, Sonics, Symbio and Vivante. Today the member joins No. 13 and perhaps one of the most important: Qualcomm, the largest manufacturer of ARM SoCs industry.
The gpu qualcomm Adreno 130, 200 and 300 Series supports the Standard API for GPU accelerated computing OpenCL 1.1, and Qualcomm says its future GPUs offer a growing computing power, so they believe that supporting standards where Foundation is based HSA allow their products offer higher performance and lower power consumption thanks to the calculation of their GPUs.
Undoubtedly Qualcomm joining the HSA Foundation, greatly strengthens, and it remains to prove what the eighth and important founding member (hexagon blank image) will Will Apple? Nvidia?? Does Intel? We’ll know soon.
