C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2 structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2 {
    VkStructureType          sType;
    const void*              pNext;
    VkFormat                 format;
    VkImageType              type;
    VkSampleCountFlagBits    samples;
    VkImageUsageFlags        usage;
    VkImageTiling            tiling;
} VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_get_physical_device_properties2
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2 VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2KHR;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • format is the image format.

  • type is the dimensionality of image.

  • samples is a VkSampleCountFlagBits value specifying the number of samples per texel.

  • usage is a bitmask describing the intended usage of the image.

  • tiling is the tiling arrangement of the texel blocks in memory.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-samples-01095
    samples must be a bit value that is set in VkImageFormatProperties::sampleCounts returned by vkGetPhysicalDeviceImageFormatProperties with format, type, tiling, and usage equal to those in this command and flags equal to the value that is set in VkImageCreateInfo::flags when the image is created

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-format-parameter
    format must be a valid VkFormat value

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-type-parameter
    type must be a valid VkImageType value

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-samples-parameter
    samples must be a valid VkSampleCountFlagBits value

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-usage-parameter
    usage must be a valid combination of VkImageUsageFlagBits values

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-usage-requiredbitmask
    usage must not be 0

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2-tiling-parameter
    tiling must be a valid VkImageTiling value
