This is a great development. Should be interesting to see the path that Baidu takes. I remember talking to one of their architects at SC2013 and he said something along the lines of, "two years ago, if you asked use we were not optimizing for latency in a multi processor compute environemnt. Now that is a major focus".

Is OpenCL all we need to get GPUs and DSPs into the data center in a big way?

And what do you think of Intel's upcoming Broadwell?

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.
