Gamasutra has an interview with AMD’s VP of Strategic Development Bob Veldenstein where he ‘enlightens’ us on the ‘future’ of combined CPU/GPU machines.
From the article:
‘I’ll say that what I see the future as is a combined CPU/GPU, where the delineations are not there anymore. You combine them into a chip; you have compute elements of both, and jobs get kind of — threads get kind of put on the resources that are best suited for them. GPU-like resources, vector engines for problems that simulate the real world, graphics, and physics. And for sequential problems, about other parts of this, you know, you’ve got your typical sequential processor.’
