    Phoronix: SUSE Developers Publish Radeon GCN Backend Code For GCC Compiler

    While the AMDGPU "GCN" compiler support in LLVM is quite mature now, the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) hasn't yet received a full-fledged GCN compiler back-end for AMD GPUs. SUSE developers have been working on that for AMD and today they have published their code branch. This GCN back-end for GCC is primarily focused on compute capabilities rather than compiling graphics shaders...

      Does this news means that the date we will be able to code in standard c/c++ a graphics card is closer?

        What's the point of this? OpenCL support is available already via Clover and the proprietary(soon open source) stack.

          This is not about OpenCL, this is about compiling languages GCC supports for AMD GPUs.

            you can do that using HCC. There will always be limitations (unless you redesign hw), for things like recursive function calls.
