Local memory barrier and work group size

Question asked by boxerab on Aug 7, 2015

I have a work group of size 128. I can guarantee that for each of the four subsets of consecutive 32 work items,

that all items in the subset hit a local memory barrier. But, across subsets, this may not be the case.

 

Will this be a problem?  Do all 128 items need to hit the barrier?  What are the risks if not all them do?

 

 

Subset 0:  0,1,2....31

Subset 1: 32,33,....64

.

Subset 3: 96,97....128
