Today's GPUs are connected to x86-based CPUs through the PCI Express (PCIe) interface, which limits the GPU's ability to access the CPU memory system and is four- to five-times slower than typical CPU memory systems.
Additionally, its encoding format has been optimized for software decoding offering a 200 percent improvement in decompression performance on x86-based CPUs or graphics processing units (GPU).
In addition, a reliance on soft-translation opens up a world of finger pointing, as developers will inevitably find that their applications are in some way less optimized for Crusoe than for standard x86-based CPUs.
AMD was the first company to deliver a public beta release of an OpenCL software development platform for x86-based CPUs on August 5, 2009.
AMD is the first to deliver a beta release of an OpenCL software development platform for x86-based CPUs, highlighting AMD's commitment to deliver a complete heterogeneous OpenCL development platform for both the CPU and GPU.
