Single Work-item Kernels

When a kernel describes a single work item, the DPC++ host can execute the kernel as a single task. The SYCL* specification version 1.2.1 describes this mode of operation as task-parallel programming. A task is equivalent to a kernel executed with one work-group that contains one work-item. For more information, refer to Concepts of Hardware Design and Mapping Parallelism Models to Hardware.
