I read that GPU and CPU will now be able to access the same uniform address space. But some things are kind of unclear:


1- Which options should be used when creating buffers on Kaveri to exploit this? or is it enough to use map/unmap when accessing the data?

2- Will AMDs OpenCL implementation allow allocating very large buffers on Kaveri? If we have 32GB RAM on the machine, Will you be able to allocate some 20GB sized buffer objects?
