VK_KHR_8bit_storage extension allows use of 8-bit types in uniform and
storage buffers, and push constant blocks.
This extension introduces several new optional features which map to SPIR-V
capabilities and allow access to 8-bit data in
Uniform and the
StorageBuffer storage classes, and objects
PushConstant storage class.
StorageBuffer8BitAccess capability must be supported by all
implementations of this extension.
The other capabilities are optional.
Promotion to Vulkan 1.2
Functionality in this extension is included in core Vulkan 1.2, with the KHR
However, if Vulkan 1.2 is supported and this extension is not, the
StorageBuffer8BitAccess capability is optional.
The original type, enum and command names are still available as aliases of
the core functionality.
New Enum Constants
New SPIR-V Capabilities
