C Specification

To query supported features defined by the core or extensions, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
void vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2*                  pFeatures);

or the equivalent command

// Provided by VK_KHR_get_physical_device_properties2
void vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2KHR(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2*                  pFeatures);


  • physicalDevice is the physical device from which to query the supported features.

  • pFeatures is a pointer to a VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure in which the physical device features are returned.


Each structure in pFeatures and its pNext chain contains members corresponding to fine-grained features. vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 writes each member to a boolean value indicating whether that feature is supported.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2-physicalDevice-parameter
    physicalDevice must be a valid VkPhysicalDevice handle

  • VUID-vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2-pFeatures-parameter
    pFeatures must be a valid pointer to a VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure
