When you say, "maximum size of elements", are you referring to the
size of the individual elements of the array, or the number of items
in the array? Obviously, the larger the elements, the fewer the count
for a given amount of memory.

It would be helpful to elaborate on 'process' also. If your processing
is compute intensive, then that could be as much of a bottleneck as
available memory.
