Vortex: OpenCL Compatible RISC-V GPGPU

Vortex is an open source Hardware and Software project to support GPGPU based on RISC-V ISA extensions. Currently Vortex supports OpenCL and it runs on FPGA. The vortex platform is highly customizable and scalable with a complete open source compiler, driver and runtime software stack to enable research in GPU architectures.
