Vulkan separates the concept of physical and logical devices. A physical device usually represents a single device in a system (perhaps made up of several individual hardware devices working together), of which there are a finite number. A logical device represents an application’s view of the device.
Physical devices are represented by
vkCreateDevice, vkEnumerateDeviceExtensionProperties, vkEnumerateDeviceLayerProperties, vkEnumeratePhysicalDevices, vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures, vkGetPhysicalDeviceFormatProperties, vkGetPhysicalDeviceImageFormatProperties, vkGetPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties, vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties, vkGetPhysicalDeviceQueueFamilyProperties, vkGetPhysicalDeviceSparseImageFormatProperties
