C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceShaderSubgroupExtendedTypesFeatures structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceShaderSubgroupExtendedTypesFeatures {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           shaderSubgroupExtendedTypes;
} VkPhysicalDeviceShaderSubgroupExtendedTypesFeatures;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_shader_subgroup_extended_types
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceShaderSubgroupExtendedTypesFeatures VkPhysicalDeviceShaderSubgroupExtendedTypesFeaturesKHR;


This structure describes the following feature:


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • shaderSubgroupExtendedTypes is a boolean specifying whether subgroup operations can use 8-bit integer, 16-bit integer, 64-bit integer, 16-bit floating-point, and vectors of these types in group operations with subgroup scope, if the implementation supports the types.

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

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