C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceExternalMemoryHostPropertiesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_external_memory_host
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceExternalMemoryHostPropertiesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkDeviceSize       minImportedHostPointerAlignment;
} VkPhysicalDeviceExternalMemoryHostPropertiesEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • minImportedHostPointerAlignment is the minimum required alignment, in bytes, for the base address and size of host pointers that can be imported to a Vulkan memory object. The value must be a power of two.


If the VkPhysicalDeviceExternalMemoryHostPropertiesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceProperties2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2, it is filled in with each corresponding implementation-dependent property.

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