Have no clue about this CUDA. Can EEtimes do an intro in another post for those not used to this Nividia tech. But opening and making things open as Android has proven is a good idea.

Excellent move by NVidia. As the article states the future of computing is heterogeneous and the more open design flows are the easier it is for us to take full advantage of them and of heterogeneous hardware.

Surely it runs on windows & Linux. Mac, I don't know. Anyway, this is a long-awaited step. I wonder how open this access will be. Typically, nVidia is very careful not to disclose any architectural details about their chips.

On what platform this CUDA compiler runs on? Windows, Linux or Mac?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
