C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 {
    VkStructureType             sType;
    void*                       pNext;
    VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures    features;
} VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_get_physical_device_properties2
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2KHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • features is a VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures structure describing the fine-grained features of the Vulkan 1.0 API.


The pNext chain of this structure is used to extend the structure with features defined by extensions. This structure can be used in vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 or can be included in the pNext chain of a VkDeviceCreateInfo structure, in which case it controls which features are enabled on the device in lieu of pEnabledFeatures.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2-sType-sType
