C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceFragmentDensityMapFeaturesEXT structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceFragmentDensityMapFeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           fragmentDensityMap;
    VkBool32           fragmentDensityMapDynamic;
    VkBool32           fragmentDensityMapNonSubsampledImages;
} VkPhysicalDeviceFragmentDensityMapFeaturesEXT;


The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceFragmentDensityMapFeaturesEXT structure describe the following features:


  • fragmentDensityMap specifies whether the implementation supports render passes with a fragment density map attachment. If this feature is not enabled and the pNext chain of VkRenderPassCreateInfo contains VkRenderPassFragmentDensityMapCreateInfoEXT, fragmentDensityMapAttachment must be VK_ATTACHMENT_UNUSED.

  • fragmentDensityMapDynamic specifies whether the implementation supports dynamic fragment density map image views. If this feature is not enabled, VK_IMAGE_VIEW_CREATE_FRAGMENT_DENSITY_MAP_DYNAMIC_BIT_EXT must not be included in VkImageViewCreateInfo::flags.

  • fragmentDensityMapNonSubsampledImages specifies whether the implementation supports regular non-subsampled image attachments with fragment density map render passes. If this feature is not enabled, render passes with a fragment density map attachment must only have subsampled attachments bound.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceFragmentDensityMapFeaturesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled with values indicating whether each feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceFragmentDensityMapFeaturesEXT can also be used in pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to enable the features.
