    I almost thought the acronym meant "High-Performance Virtual Machine".


    Also, OpenCL support but no AMD support? What is this?
    It is kinda ironic that they couldn't use CUDA.

      I think the main reason is they don't have any AMD GPU in their Lab...

        Maybe their Lab GPUs are in the cloud. As far as I know, AMD has a small market share in cloud GPUs.

          Their ReadME file states "OpenCL (>=1.0.0) or CUDA (>=9.1)".

            The concept sounds a lot like reinventing HSA. And a lot of time has passed without any new major advancements in the OpenCL space (Nvidia is still not conforming to 2.0 fully?).

              In the end I suspect OpenCL is going the way of OpenGL in modern systems. There seems to be a general trend to operating specific or even GPU specific solutions. Thus Metal, DirectX and other solutions.

                More great stuff from the North American universities!

                But where the hell is the stuff from the South American, Russian, Chinese, African, and Indian universities? Why are they not releasing anything? Are they not producing anything of value?

                    I don't know, I haven't heard about them releasing anything (related to GPU or not).
