Hi,
We didn't get your question. Our answer is in the assumption that the question is that if a GPU/CPU is shared by a single process?
There is no restriction for a process to use the whole available memory(RAM) excluding the critical OS files in memory.
Page Fault Exception technique is used to allocate the memory for a process. If the system ran out of memory to allocate a new page for a process, one of the Page Replacement Algorithms is used to allocate the memory.
