Looks like AMD has updated their SDK for OpenCL/parellel development.


The SDK allows for fast transfer of data between the CP and the GPU part of the APU. For the A-series the speeds are up to 15 GB per second.

Mind you, this is for the A-series (on-board GPU)... which is sharing memory with the CPU anyhow.

So essentially it's just a memory->memory copy operation.
