Instance Property

hasUnifiedMemory

A Boolean that indicates whether the GPU shares all of its memory with the CPU.

Required.

Declaration

@property(readonly) BOOL hasUnifiedMemory;

Discussion

If the value is YES, the GPU is typically integrated with the CPU and shares its memory. If the value is NO, the GPU may have its own dedicated memory. In the latter case, synchronizing managed resources or copying data into private resources associated with this GPU may take additional time.
