To invalidate ranges of non-coherent memory from the host caches, call:
VkResult vkInvalidateMappedMemoryRanges( VkDevice device, uint32_t memoryRangeCount, const VkMappedMemoryRange* pMemoryRanges);
deviceis the logical device that owns the memory ranges.
memoryRangeCountis the length of the
pMemoryRangesis a pointer to an array of
VkMappedMemoryRangestructures describing the memory ranges to invalidate.
vkInvalidateMappedMemoryRanges must be used to guarantee that device
writes to non-coherent memory are visible to the host.
It must be called after command buffers that execute and flush (via memory
barriers) the device writes have completed, and before the host will read or
write any of those locations.
If a range of non-coherent memory is written by the host and then
invalidated without first being flushed, its contents are undefined.
Mapping non-coherent memory does not implicitly invalidate the mapped memory, and device writes that have not been invalidated must be made visible before the host reads or overwrites them.
