C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceFaultFeaturesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_device_fault
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceFaultFeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           deviceFault;
    VkBool32           deviceFaultVendorBinary;
} VkPhysicalDeviceFaultFeaturesEXT;


The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceFaultFeaturesEXT structure describe the following features:


  • deviceFault indicates that the implementation supports the reporting of device fault information.

  • deviceFaultVendorBinary indicates that the implementation supports the generation of vendor-specific binary crash dumps. These may provide additional information when imported into vendor-specific external tools.

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

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