HSA Open Source Program Coming Soon
HSA Developers Are Changing The Future Of Computing
HSA Goal Is To Drive Increased Developer Productivity Via A Broad Set Of Languages

HSA opens the door to a new class of solutions that are difficult to achieve in historical architectures where inter-task/process communication is important across heterogeneous compute devices.  In response to that challenge,  HSA will address a broad class of approaches to application parallelism.

  • Data Parallelism – Embarrassingly Parallel Application
  • Task-Parallelism
  • Nested-Parallelism
  • Braided-Parallelism

This capability will open up more efficient implementations of MapReduce, Hash Tables, Sparse Matrix Vectors and Conjugate Gradients solvers, FETI-DP Method, List Ranking, and spatial search.  Most important this is  just a small sampling of problems that can be addressed by HSA enabled platforms.


Design, Create and Innovate a New Class  of Applications, Tools, Libraries and Runtimes  for HSA

The HSA Foundation developer program will offers a complete set of resources that will help you explore how heterogeneous system architectures can free you to drive a new level of  innovation into your application.
