C Specification

The VkPipelineFragmentShadingRateStateCreateInfoKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_fragment_shading_rate
typedef struct VkPipelineFragmentShadingRateStateCreateInfoKHR {
    VkStructureType                       sType;
    const void*                           pNext;
    VkExtent2D                            fragmentSize;
    VkFragmentShadingRateCombinerOpKHR    combinerOps[2];
} VkPipelineFragmentShadingRateStateCreateInfoKHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • fragmentSize specifies a VkExtent2D structure containing the fragment size used to define the pipeline fragment shading rate for drawing commands using this pipeline.

  • combinerOps specifies a VkFragmentShadingRateCombinerOpKHR value determining how the pipeline, primitive, and attachment shading rates are combined for fragments generated by drawing commands using the created pipeline.


If the pNext chain of VkGraphicsPipelineCreateInfo includes a VkPipelineFragmentShadingRateStateCreateInfoKHR structure, then that structure includes parameters controlling the pipeline fragment shading rate.

If this structure is not present, fragmentSize is considered to be equal to (1,1), and both elements of combinerOps are considered to be equal to VK_FRAGMENT_SHADING_RATE_COMBINER_OP_KEEP_KHR.

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