C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceDescriptorPoolOverallocationFeaturesNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_descriptor_pool_overallocation
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceDescriptorPoolOverallocationFeaturesNV {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           descriptorPoolOverallocation;
} VkPhysicalDeviceDescriptorPoolOverallocationFeaturesNV;


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.

  • descriptorPoolOverallocation indicates that the implementation allows the application to opt into descriptor pool overallocation by creating the descriptor pool with VK_DESCRIPTOR_POOL_CREATE_ALLOW_OVERALLOCATION_SETS_BIT_NV and/or VK_DESCRIPTOR_POOL_CREATE_ALLOW_OVERALLOCATION_POOLS_BIT_NV flags.


If the VkPhysicalDeviceDescriptorPoolOverallocationFeaturesNV 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. VkPhysicalDeviceDescriptorPoolOverallocationFeaturesNV can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

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