C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceShaderTerminateInvocationFeatures structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceShaderTerminateInvocationFeatures {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           shaderTerminateInvocation;
} VkPhysicalDeviceShaderTerminateInvocationFeatures;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_shader_terminate_invocation
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceShaderTerminateInvocationFeatures VkPhysicalDeviceShaderTerminateInvocationFeaturesKHR;


This structure describes the following feature:


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • shaderTerminateInvocation specifies whether the implementation supports SPIR-V modules that use the SPV_KHR_terminate_invocation extension.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceShaderTerminateInvocationFeatures structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceShaderTerminateInvocationFeatures can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

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