Little things that matter in language design
Oh for links to what I am talking about:
Here is Nvidia's CUDA:
> The CUDA Toolkit is a complete software development solution for programming CUDA-enabled
GPUs. The Toolkit includes standard FFT and BLAS libraries, a C-compiler for the NVIDIA GPU
and a runtime driver. The CUDA runtime driver is a separate standalone driver that
interoperates with OpenGL and Microsoft® DirectX® drivers from NVIDIA. CUDA technology is
currently supported on the Linux and Microsoft® Windows® XP operating systems.
ATI's effort is much more friendlier. It's CTM (close-to-metal) were they provide a assembler
programable interface for supported GPUs. It seems that they still had a software shim in
there to hide the video interfaces.
Arstechnica has some good articles on the subject:
AMD/ATI's Fusion is combining CPU/GPU cores into a single proccessor
Intel Larrebee seems to be taking the X86-style proccessor and extending into GPU-land.
