    Fully agree, thank you Bridgman.
    Hope you'll be around here from time to time.

    I'm already here, just about 6,000 times less prolific than John.

    Hi Tim,

    welcome on board!

    Is there anything you want to share with us concerning your vision on the AMD open source strategy?

    But yea, thanks for all the contributions to the forum over all the years

    Heterogenous System Architecture -- it's not easy to put in a one-liner summary but basically making it a whole lot easier for CPUs and GPUs to work together. There are a number of major HW vendors collaborating on it via the HSA Foundation :

    Phil's keynote slides from AFDS 2012 give a pretty good sampling of what's involved :

    Slide 30 touches on the open source aspects of the initiative. Part of my new job is working on alignment between HSA open source plans and other open source GPU/CPU activities inside and outside AMD.

    @bridgman

    How committed to open source are the members of the hsa foundation. Because i think some of the companies there are not that friendly when it comes to graphics

    @bridgman maybe you can comment in this thread about how HSAIL relates to SPIR (if there is any kind of relation)?

    I think one of the major ideas behind HSA is to standardize it across the industry, so I think they are pretty committed to making it at least as open as, say, OpenGL. Individual companies will probably have different ideas about how friendly towards open source they will be individually - i'm sure many will try to keep as much proprietary as possible, and just have that higher level that's shared across vendors be open source.
