Having open standards will help this effort to succeed.  I expect Intel and Nvidia to  stay close to the vest on their development until ready to sell something.

Clearly, it looks to be Intel vs. its competitors...isn't it? Intel (and Nvidia) wants to go on its own. I agree with you on the need for an efficient and successful execution of this initiative. Looks like lots happening in the SoC field. Though this initiative looks to be majorly on the open & unified programming software part, I think some point of time there will be some kind of specs for hardware as well. Some point of time FPGA manufacturers also might join in?

My opinion is the concept is sound here. I first heard it from the late Chuck Moore at AMD.

However, execution is key to success. I note there is no membership from Microsoft or Google Android or Apple (iOS). There are no hardware specs finished. And there is no compliant hardware.

Despite earlier reports the specs could be done this year, they are now saying mid-2014.

There's a long road to success yet ahead. Plenty of time for whatever Intel, Nvidia and anyone else will do.

Presumably there's nothing to stop this initiative including MIPS processors as well right ? Imagination are involved as founder/near founder members and the point is to make this stuff hardware agnostic.

Phil Rodgers, president of HSA has rightly pitched the state of electronics industries to promote common and open source programming language to handle complex integrated features of any processor. The companies not joining HSA will be on loosing counterpart as ARM is gaining more spread of their processors and being modular in nature if HSA goes right all the way it may an event of losing business.
