    Phoronix: Intel To Upstream Habana Labs Network Drivers Into The Linux Kernel

    While for years there has been the Habana Labs AI accelerator driver within the mainline Linux kernel, this "accel" driver has been focused on just supporting training/inference across their products. Now being worked on for the mainline Linux kernel are upstreaming the Habana Labs network drivers that can be used for scaling out the AI workloads across multiple systems...

    This kinda makes sense and tracks with the rumors I've read where Intel may not make any more stand-alone Gaudi accelerators after Gaudi 3 but will infuse Habana IP into their existing accelerators like their current NPUs and perhaps their new NPUs down the road will essentially incorporate Gaudi tech. In addition, this news also tracks with the unveiling of the UXL Foundation for a unified cross vendor / cross platform framework for accelerator development and communications standardizing on Intel's oneAPI along with the recent news that the Intel led UXL Foundation and Kronos are now explicitly working together on this very same project. This is what AMD's HSA and HSA Foundation was working on back 12 years ago but Lisa Su killed that off when she came aboard.
