I recently read this article on Xilinx’s new architecture which ends with the following quotation:
“The world of CPU-centric computing is over. It’s well understood that the future of computing is going to be more of a heterogeneous architecture where there will be accelerators somewhere in the system or the datacenter. It’s as much driven by the nature of the workload and the exponential increase in that, as well as the fact that Moore’s Law really has been slowing down if not completely stopped working. It’s certainly has stopped working from an economic perspective, even though we know how to scale to the next process node, from an economic perspective that everything is getting better, faster, cheaper, that’s really not working anymore, and actually hasn’t been working for a few nodes. What that means is that in this new era, architecture will be heterogeneous with accelerators.”
I understand that to mean ISA’s might soon be a thing of the past, with ACAP virtually creating the achitechture on the fly based on the programming.
Am I completely wrong?
