6.1.1. Host Machine Memory Requirements

The machine that runs the host application must have enough host memory to support several components simultaneously.

The host machine must support the following components:

  • The host application and operating system.
  • The working set for the host application.
  • The maximum amount of OpenCL™ memory buffers that can be allocated at once. Every device-side cl_mem buffer is associated with a corresponding storage area in the host process. Therefore, the amount of host memory necessary might be as large as the amount of external memory supported by the FPGA.
