why use clEnqueueWriteBuffer()?

Hi Robert,

in your example modulatemain.cpp,  I wonder why you use clEnqueueWriteBuffer().  I looks to me clEnqueueWriteBuffer() causes extra mem copy and thus slow down computing.

thanks,

Jeffrey

Hi Jeffrey,

Yes, you actually don't want to use it on our hardware. The right thing to do is described here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/getting-the-most-from-opencl-12-how-to-increase-performanc...

Modulate samples don't show good host side practices: the device side is OK.

Sorry for the confusion!
