STANDARDS --
The HSA Foundation today announced version 1.1 of the Heterogeneous System Architecture.

Heterogeneous System Architecture 1.1 most notably brings multi-vendor architecture support for allowing IP blocks from different vendors to "communicate, interoperate and collectively compose an HSA system."

Complementing the multi-vendor support in HSA 1.1 are efficiency improvements, a more strict memory model, system-level profiling capabilities, QoS improvements, run-time enhancements, a new LLDB-based debugger, and more.

Those wishing to learn more about HSA 1.1, which has come just a little over a year after the formal HSA 1.0 specification, can visit HSAFoundation.com.
