Unified CPU/GPU Memory Architecture Raises The Performance Bar (.PDF Download)

May 28, 2013

The new heterogeneous Uniform Memory Access (hUMA) design will be used in future heterogeneous system architecture (HSA) configurations. HSA normalizes the CPU and GPU providing equal, integrated memory and cache support. It also allows tighter integration of the CPU and GPU software. The instruction sets and semantics are too different, so there will still be major distinctions between code that runs on each, but now the two will be able to cooperate more quickly with less...
