C Specification

The VkAccelerationStructureBuildSizesInfoKHR structure describes the required build sizes for an acceleration structure and scratch buffers and is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_acceleration_structure
typedef struct VkAccelerationStructureBuildSizesInfoKHR {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkDeviceSize       accelerationStructureSize;
    VkDeviceSize       updateScratchSize;
    VkDeviceSize       buildScratchSize;
} VkAccelerationStructureBuildSizesInfoKHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • accelerationStructureSize is the size in bytes required in a VkAccelerationStructureKHR for a build or update operation.

  • updateScratchSize is the size in bytes required in a scratch buffer for an update operation.

  • buildScratchSize is the size in bytes required in a scratch buffer for a build operation.


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

  • VUID-VkAccelerationStructureBuildSizesInfoKHR-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL
