    Phoronix: Intel Confirms Ponte Vecchio As 7nm General Purpose GPU

    In addition to announcing the much anticipated oneAPI beta, Raja Koduri spent his time at Intel's event today also talking about "Ponte Vecchio" as their forthcoming general purpose GPU...

    still no answer to the most important question about Intel's GPUs: what new and exciting hardware security vulnerabilities are they going to bring?

      MindMelt. A Meltdown variant that's triggered by Vulkan calls and the mitigation will cause a 10% loss of performance for any Vulkan activity.

      Which will soon be followed by:

      Glutton. A new bug that causes any OpenGL process to dump the system's memory to the first partition it can find, usually /dev/sda1 until it's full or the system crashes.

      And

      Crai Crai. Unfortunately, that's the one where an AI running ray tracing experiments triggers a new root exploit while simultaneously becoming self-aware and addicted to Twitter. After reading 500 of Donald Trump's tweets it commits suicide with a nuclear warhead and inadvertently starts WWIII.

        You certainly have a vivid imagination - love it

          That's a feature, not a bug.

            I love how "GPU"s these days are optimized for things other than graphics.

              Since it's a tribute to the famous bridge in Florence, the correct pronounce Ponte Vecchio is the Italian way: ~ Ponta Vekk-yo

              I wonder why Intel chose that landmark as the codename...

                So Intel is confident that they can build this on their own 7nm? I assume they won't be using TSMC.

                  I don't know what's better, that there are people with humor or that people can actually predict good/entertaining content

                    Continuing their theme of <name> bridge? Will there be an Italian lake for the next gen?
