Sometimes the compute intensive task required by the host application can process the data across multiple hardware instances of the same kernel, or compute units (CUs) to achieve data parallelism on the FPGA. If a single kernel has been compiled into multiple CUs, the clEnqueueTask command can be called multiple times in an out-of-order command queue, to enable data parallelism. Each call of clEnqueueTask would schedule a workload of data in different CUs, working in parallel.
