    Intel will never do Cray vectors because that would thwart their ability to segment through ISA extensions.

    By the way expect this (and AVX-512) to become an "industry standard" when Zen 3 puts the final nail in their coffin.

    It'll be hard to beat AVX-512 though

    Phoronix: Intel Prepares Linux Kernel Support For Advanced Matrix Extensions (AMX)

    Following the announcement this summer of Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions (AMX) as an exciting feature coming to Sapphire Rapids Xeon CPUs next year, Intel's open-source engineers quickly began with patches to LLVM and GNU toolchain support for AMX. Now Intel engineers have sent out their patches in preparing the Linux kernel for AMX...
