    Phoronix: Intel's oneAPI / DPC++ / SYCL Will Run Atop NVIDIA GPUs With Open-Source Layer

    With yesterday's much anticipated Intel oneAPI beta being built around open-source standards like SYCL, the "cross-device" support can at least in theory extend beyond just Intel platforms. Codeplay is already showing that's possible with a to-be-open-source layer that will allow oneAPI and SYCL / Data Parallel C++ to run atop NVIDIA GPUs via CUDA...

      I'm expecting toolchains that ingest SYCL to basically transform it into OpenCL, at which point you have both a normal C++ CPU compiler backend and OpenCL GPU compiler backend.
