C Specification

A logical device that represents multiple physical devices may support presenting from images on more than one physical device, or combining images from multiple physical devices.

To query these capabilities, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1 with VK_KHR_swapchain, VK_KHR_device_group with VK_KHR_surface
VkResult vkGetDeviceGroupPresentCapabilitiesKHR(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkDeviceGroupPresentCapabilitiesKHR*        pDeviceGroupPresentCapabilities);


  • device is the logical device.

  • pDeviceGroupPresentCapabilities is a pointer to a VkDeviceGroupPresentCapabilitiesKHR structure in which the device’s capabilities are returned.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkGetDeviceGroupPresentCapabilitiesKHR-device-parameter
    device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • VUID-vkGetDeviceGroupPresentCapabilitiesKHR-pDeviceGroupPresentCapabilities-parameter
    pDeviceGroupPresentCapabilities must be a valid pointer to a VkDeviceGroupPresentCapabilitiesKHR structure

Return Codes
On success, this command returns

On failure, this command returns
