A10-5800K global memory size different on Windows and Linux

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have setup 2GB for the APU's GPU and I am able to see 2GB using clinfo available in windows 8, however  under Linux it says 1GB available. Is this a known problem? The motherboard is an asus f2a85-m

Thanks,

Evren

on Linux GPU memory is always 50% of total memory. you can increase it with export GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE=100

Yes that fixed it. I only had GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100, but I think I see the full memory on other cards. Strange... anyway, thanks!
