    Phoronix: Xilinx Continues Their Open-Source FPGA Upstreaming Push For The Linux Kernel

    Earlier this month we covered the news of Xilinx is looking to upstream their open-source "AI Engine" driver to the Linux kernel. This comes as Xilinx and AMD are working on Radeon Open eCosystem (ROCm) support for their FPGAs with AMD being in the process of acquiring the FPGA giant. Now more open-source code is looking to be included in the Linux kernel tree...

    Yeah I think this is great news. It seems fairly obvious that AMD will be integrating purpose made accelerators into their GPU and CPU products. OSS ftw!

      Great news.

      noob: Does this help Intel users in some ways too!?

        Only if you have a Xilinx Alveo card in your Intel-based machine.

        Think of it like contributing driver improvements for a GPU. If you don't have that model of GPU, it won't help you, but GPUs can be had on discrete cards.
