Intel Contributes Advanced oneAPI DPC++ Capabilities to the SYCL 2020 Provisional Spec

intel syclToday, The Khronos Group, an open consortium of industry-leading companies creating graphics and compute interoperability standards, announced its SYCL 2020 Provisional Specification, for which Intel has made significant contributions through new programming abstractions. These new capabilities accelerate heterogeneous parallel programming for high-performance computing (HPC), machine learning and compute-intensive applications.

“The SYCL 2020 Provisional Specification marks a significant milestone helping improve time-to-performance in programming heterogeneous computing systems through more productive and familiar C++ programming constructs,” said Jeff McVeigh, vice president of Datacenter XPU Products and Solutions at Intel Corporation. “Through active collaboration with The Khronos Group, the new specification includes significant features pioneered in oneAPI’s Data Parallel C++, such as unified shared memory, group algorithms and sub-groups that were up-streamed to SYCL 2020. Moving forward, Intel’s oneAPI toolkits, which include the SYCL-based Intel® oneAPI DPC++ Compiler, will deliver productivity and performance for open, cross-architecture programming.”
