    Phoronix: Intel Releases oneAPI Base Toolkit Beta For Performance-Focused, Cross-Device Software

    Since Intel announced "oneAPI" last December we have been eagerly looking forward to its availability and today is finally that day! For SC19, Intel has made available the beta of the oneAPI Base Toolkit for developing speedy code that runs cross-architecture...

    Bad joke: Can oneAPI replace the entire operating system with just one API for everything?

      I am keen on seeing how well it all works cross platform (and cross architecture) is it truly oneAPI or is it vendor lock in

        Don't you mean vendor box-in?

                Huh? You mean like oneAPI for everything - even kernel modules?

                No, I think it's more like "oneAPI to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them."

                  This is supposed to be an API to reuse code across devices, however, it includes Intel MKL, which intentionally disables optimizations on non-Intel CPUs. Unless Intel has fixed this in the oneAPI version of MKL, this doesn't make sense for any application that actually wants to work across devices (of different vendors).
