This extension adds Vulkan support for the
That SPIR-V extension provides a new instruction,
OpTerminateInvocation, which causes a shader invocation to immediately
terminate and sets the coverage of shaded samples to
0; only previously
executed instructions will have observable effects.
OpTerminateInvocation instruction, along with the
OpDemoteToHelperInvocation instruction from the
VK_EXT_shader_demote_to_helper_invocation extension, together
OpKill instruction, which could behave like either of these
OpTerminateInvocation provides the behavior required by the GLSL
discard statement, and should be used when available by GLSL compilers
and applications that need the GLSL
Functionality in this extension is included in core Vulkan 1.3, with the KHR suffix omitted. The original type, enum and command names are still available as aliases of the core functionality.
