"Current HPC codes often run efficiently either on multicore nodes or accelerators, but typically struggle to balance between the two paradigms and to get the best performance out of both architectures working together. The added value and big promise behind oneAPI is that we get one programming model for all parts of the machine and then can let algorithms decide dynamically which steps of the code to run where."

"We appreciate the combination of full support of SYCL with the fact that all is built upon the LLVM* software stack. Probably the most important feature for us is the fact that the compiler allows us to seamlessly switch from SYCL to OpenMP and back, so we can compare GPU offloading paradigms, techniques, and their efficiency."
