    Phoronix: Mesa 20.2's Nouveau Enables HMM, OpenCL SVM Now Supported

    The open-source NVIDIA "Nouveau" driver stack reached a new milestone today with the user-space code in Mesa 20.2 finally flipping on the Heterogeneous Memory Management (HMM) support...

    There was nothing holding back the prioprietary driver from implementing SVM and thus supporting OpenCL 2.x . The way Michael writes in this article, it is as if Nvidia just couldn't do it because it wasn't in their power. This is not the case. Nvidia CHOSE not to implement it and it was purely a business decision to promote vendor lock-in for CUDA.

      Burn the Witch (Michael)!! (I hope it's not a hate speech against CoC ;-)

        What’s likely to continue to propel Nvidia past Intel (INTC) isn’t videogames, it will be its data center sales.

          some rumored open-source NVIDIA play this calendar year.
          It's also rumoured there's a monster in Loch Ness.

            Well Intel is working on pretty big GPGPU products. So NVIDIA will have some competition other than AMD.
