    For those wondering what is VPU, it appears Intel has released some video coding chips with neural cores.

      ARM chips have had VPUs for a while, minus the "neural cores". That's one of the things that made some of the earlier ones more bearable to use despite the otherwise sub-par GPU support.

        But does oneAPI work on RISC-V?
        Also does it work on both Intel and AMD or only Intel?

          While I haven't had much experience with onAPI outside of oneDNN it seems like: yes, experimental support is available for RISC-V.

          Yes, at least oneDNN works on AMD since it targets instruction sets, not CPU models.

            oneAPI is against CUDA so Intel needs support from every non-NVidia vendor to have a chance.

              Fixed: https://intel.github.io/llvm-docs/Ge...or-nvidia-cuda

                Nice, the oneAPI already supports hardware acceleration on the non-Intel GPU hardware. In the case of NVidia it's CUDA, and I the case of AMD it's HIP AMD. Not sure whether the CUDA backend was written by someone from NVidia and it doesn't mean oneAPI replaces CUDA on the Nvidia hardware. But the wrapper is important for developers because they can have one codepath (similar to MoltenVK wrapper allowing developers to write in Vulkan for all platforms).
