C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceUniformBufferStandardLayoutFeatures structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceUniformBufferStandardLayoutFeatures {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           uniformBufferStandardLayout;
} VkPhysicalDeviceUniformBufferStandardLayoutFeatures;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_uniform_buffer_standard_layout
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceUniformBufferStandardLayoutFeatures VkPhysicalDeviceUniformBufferStandardLayoutFeaturesKHR;


This structure describes the following feature:

  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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


  • uniformBufferStandardLayout indicates that the implementation supports the same layouts for uniform buffers as for storage and other kinds of buffers. See Standard Buffer Layout.

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

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