Intel's One API project aims 'to simplify application development across diverse computing architectures.'
Now an anonymous reader quotes Phoronix:
Intel announced an interesting development in their oneAPI initiative: they are developing a new programming language/dialect. Intel originally began talking about oneAPI last December for optimizing code across CPUs / GPUs / FPGAs and as part of 'no transistor left behind....'
The article then acknowledges 'the SYCL single-source C++ programming standard from The Khronos Group we've expected Intel to use as their basis for oneAPI,' before noting Intel is going 'a bit beyond...'
'Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) is their 'new direct programming language' aiming to be an open, cross-industry standard and based on C++ and incorporating SYCL.'
