This RFC proposes to rename
cuda. Two main reasons for this renaming:
- There are now more kinds of GPUs, e.g., AMD Radeon GPUs and Qualcomm Adreno GPUs.
- Mainstream frameworks like PyTorch clearly indicate CUDA device, e.g., PyTorch uses
torch.cudato support CUDA tensor types, so this renaming will make it more consistent with the other frameworks.
We have a related RFC for DLPack. Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
