CPU / GPU shared memory

What about a true CPU / GPU shared memory ?

Something like the swap/pagination on the OS level (cf. store a lot of memory on a disk) but at the GPU/CPU level (share/move GPU memory <-> CPU memory by small or larges chunk) …

Think about the GPU memory can be included into a part of the CPU memory, and this is the OS (or the driver) that handle all the PCI/AGP slow interface/consistancy between this two memory …

Something like glPointer but that can give you a real shared memory to alls pbuffers data

Or make somes CPU func calls into a GPU shader :slight_smile:
