C Specification

To query supported format features which are properties of the physical device, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
void vkGetPhysicalDeviceFormatProperties2(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    VkFormat                                    format,
    VkFormatProperties2*                        pFormatProperties);


  • physicalDevice is the physical device from which to query the format properties.

  • format is the format whose properties are queried.

  • pFormatProperties is a pointer to a VkFormatProperties2 structure in which physical device properties for format are returned.


vkGetPhysicalDeviceFormatProperties2 behaves similarly to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFormatProperties, with the ability to return extended information in a pNext chain of output structures.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceFormatProperties2-physicalDevice-parameter
    physicalDevice must be a valid VkPhysicalDevice handle

  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceFormatProperties2-format-parameter
    format must be a valid VkFormat value

  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceFormatProperties2-pFormatProperties-parameter
    pFormatProperties must be a valid pointer to a VkFormatProperties2 structure
