With the release of 2021 macbook pro with M1 Pro/Max, I’m wondering if there is a good API/Libs for doing parallel computing on that chip?
From the reviews, the computational power of that device is insane, sometimes on par or better than a 3090 on some tasks, on a portable device like that. And you can have 64gig of gram! No CPU to GPU memcopy!
As far as I know, pure CPU code is running fine on M1 for julia with 1.7, maybe?
How about BLAS?
How about GPU code?
And that chip seems to have a GPU part and a tensor core like thing, how to utilize these?
There is no gpu support on mac because all gpus on mac are pretty weak. But right now and in the future, it may have many advantages over other device and could maybe eventually change the whole workflow for computation.
I haven’t buy it yet because I know I can’t do parallel computing with Julia on it yet. But really looking forward to it.
