The current challenges in technology scaling are pushing the semiconductor industry towards hardware specialization, creating a proliferation of heterogeneous systems-on-chip, delivering orders of magnitude performance and power benefits compared to traditional general-purpose architectures. This transition is getting a significant boost with the advent of RISC-V with its unique modular and extensible ISA, allowing a wide range of low-cost processor designs for various target applications. In addition, OpenCL is currently the most widely adopted programming framework for heterogeneous platforms available on mainstream CPUs, GPUs, as well as FPGAs and custom DSP. In this work, we present Vortex, a RISC-V General-Purpose GPU that supports OpenCL. Vortex implements a SIMT architecture with a minimal ISA extension to RISC-V that enables the execution of OpenCL programs. We also extended OpenCL runtime framework to use the new ISA. We evaluate this design using 15nm technology. We also show the performance and energy numbers of running them with a subset of benchmarks from the Rodinia Benchmark suite.
