The HSA architecture has adopted a variant of the HRF-Relaxed memory model, which allows memory accesses to be controlled via fine grain scopes. This chapter introduces the HSA memory consistency model, how programmers can control memory visibility, and touches how programming languages like OpenCL and C++ can be represented.
