C Specification

The VkComputePipelineCreateInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
typedef struct VkComputePipelineCreateInfo {
    VkStructureType                    sType;
    const void*                        pNext;
    VkPipelineCreateFlags              flags;
    VkPipelineShaderStageCreateInfo    stage;
    VkPipelineLayout                   layout;
    VkPipeline                         basePipelineHandle;
    int32_t                            basePipelineIndex;
} VkComputePipelineCreateInfo;



The parameters basePipelineHandle and basePipelineIndex are described in more detail in Pipeline Derivatives.

Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-basePipelineHandle-05024
    basePipelineHandle must be VK_NULL_HANDLE

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-basePipelineIndex-05025
    basePipelineIndex must be zero

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-layout-07987
    If a push constant block is declared in a shader, a push constant range in layout must match both the shader stage and range

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-layout-07988
    If a resource variables is declared in a shader, a descriptor slot in layout must match the shader stage

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-layout-07990
    If a resource variables is declared in a shader, a descriptor slot in layout must match the descriptor type

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-layout-07991
    If a resource variables is declared in a shader as an array, a descriptor slot in layout must match the descriptor count

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-stage-00701
    The stage member of stage must be VK_SHADER_STAGE_COMPUTE_BIT

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-stage-00702
    The shader code for the entry point identified by stage and the rest of the state identified by this structure must adhere to the pipeline linking rules described in the Shader Interfaces chapter

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-layout-01687
    The number of resources in layout accessible to the compute shader stage must be less than or equal to VkPhysicalDeviceLimits::maxPerStageResources

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL or a pointer to a valid instance of VkPipelineOfflineCreateInfo

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-sType-unique
    The sType value of each struct in the pNext chain must be unique

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-flags-parameter
    flags must be a valid combination of VkPipelineCreateFlagBits values

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-stage-parameter
    stage must be a valid VkPipelineShaderStageCreateInfo structure

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-layout-parameter
    layout must be a valid VkPipelineLayout handle

  • VUID-VkComputePipelineCreateInfo-commonparent
    Both of basePipelineHandle, and layout that are valid handles of non-ignored parameters must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from the same VkDevice
