C Specification

To query a compute pipeline’s 64-bit device address, call:

// Provided by VK_NV_device_generated_commands_compute
VkDeviceAddress vkGetPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressNV(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV* pInfo);


  • device is the logical device on which the pipeline was created.

  • pInfo is a pointer to a VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV structure specifying the pipeline to retrieve the address for.


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

  • VUID-vkGetPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressNV-pInfo-parameter
    pInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkPipelineIndirectDeviceAddressInfoNV structure
