C Specification

The VkPhysicalDevicePipelineLibraryGroupHandlesFeaturesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_pipeline_library_group_handles
typedef struct VkPhysicalDevicePipelineLibraryGroupHandlesFeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           pipelineLibraryGroupHandles;
} VkPhysicalDevicePipelineLibraryGroupHandlesFeaturesEXT;


This structure describes the following features:


  • pipelineLibraryGroupHandles indicates whether the implementation supports querying group handles directly from a ray tracing pipeline library, and guarantees bitwise identical group handles for such libraries when linked into other pipelines.

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

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