Why not include an FPGA company as well? FPGAs have 'hard' CPUs and a bunch of programmable fabric that can be used for parallel computation. Maybe not exactly the same way as a GPU, but still in the ball park. Let's see if it happens. My bet is on Xilinx...

The real unspoken and potentially quite loud voices here are Intel and Nvidia.

AMD made it clear that it hopes these founding members are only the beginning. They would like to see a whole host of other vendors join the foundation.

I concur, FPGA types of things should be included heterogeneous mix of processing resources. There needs to be fairly broad definitions of several processing engine types and APIs associated with them.

The other unspoken is ADI. I think this is a great movement and I wish them great success.
