How AMD's Latest Kaveri APUs Perform With HSA.... Incredible.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Almost a decade after AMD acquired ATi to fulfill its vision for heterogeneous computing.
HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) has finally arrived in hardware form in AMD's latest Kaveri APUs last month.
And while HSA compliant software has just started to pick up pace, today we can get a taste of tomorrow's performance.
And like they say, the proof is in the pudding.

Quite impressive. It would be interesting to see a comparison with an i7-E though.

Except a traditional CPU and GPU taking advantage of HSA by offloading integer operations to the GPU will still thump this.

8 core of this + a 7850-esque GPU instead of a 7750-esque GPU and this would be an absolute beast, probably curb stomp the Intel 6 cores.

And? This is how the cheapest of the cheap solutions performs. Of course more expensive/powerful solutions will be better.

I'd probably wait a generation or two still, as its probably not that widely supported.. I'd be very interesting though when all mayor software companies start coding for this..

I remember reading somewhere that Windows 9 will support HSA, so it's not necessarily that far off. But yeah - in a generation or two, this will definitely be a big deal!

Just out of curiosity does anyone know what this means for the server side of things? Is GPU acceleration a thing for server based stuff?

Not that it matters to me since I don't do server, and I'm already a total kaveri sucker :wub: kaveri :wub:

Am I the only one who thought this was a little too impressive and waited for someone to post a reason why the graph/results are skewed?


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

you know, results like this have been misrepresented before. And each new iteration of product that comes out we hope that the numbers aren't fabricated. I suppose we shall wait and see.

It's not that I question the results (the reality is I don't know enough to do so) but I figured there would be at least one Intel fanboy pipe up or one person who really knows their shit say something. Kinda concerning that we have got to page 2 and everyone's comments are affirming.
