Access to eDRAM

How does one make use of eDRAM via OpenCL ? Is this simply transparent to the user, or are there ways of

ensuring that data is stored in eDRAM vs. regular DRAM ?  I am assuming that eDRAM is treated as global memory.

Thanks!

Hi Aaron,

eDRAM is an eviction cache in 5th gen cores (Broadwell) timeframe and acts as a regular cache in 6th gen cores (Skylake). eDRAM is part of global memory and is transparent to the user, so if you have it, if all your buffers fit in eDRAM, you will have your buffers there.
