Open Source GPU capable of running OpenCL

In a white paper released during a semiconductor design conference last week in Silicon Valley, researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison outlined the architecture of the open source GPU dubbed MIAOW, or Many-core Integrated Accelerator of Wisconsin. The prototype was essentially designed to demonstrate an open source GPGPU compatible with OpenCL. The researchers said their goal was to emulate a full system, not to compete with commercial designs.
