C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2 structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2 {
    VkStructureType          sType;
    const void*              pNext;
    VkFormat                 format;
    VkImageType              type;
    VkSampleCountFlagBits    samples;
    VkImageUsageFlags        usage;
    VkImageTiling            tiling;
} VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2;

or the equivalent

typedef VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2 VkPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatInfo2KHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to an extension-specific structure.

  • format is the image format.

  • type is the dimensionality of image.

  • samples is the number of samples per texel as defined in VkSampleCountFlagBits.

  • usage is a bitmask describing the intended usage of the image.

  • tiling is the tiling arrangement of the texel blocks in memory.


Valid Usage
  • samples must be a bit value that is set in VkImageFormatProperties::sampleCounts returned by vkGetPhysicalDeviceImageFormatProperties with format, type, tiling, and usage equal to those in this command and flags equal to the value that is set in VkImageCreateInfo::flags when the image is created

Valid Usage (Implicit)
