C Specification

Possible values of elements of the VkValidationFeaturesEXT::pEnabledValidationFeatures array, specifying validation features to be enabled, are:

typedef enum VkValidationFeatureEnableEXT {
} VkValidationFeatureEnableEXT;


  • VK_VALIDATION_FEATURE_ENABLE_GPU_ASSISTED_EXT specifies that GPU-assisted validation is enabled. Activating this feature instruments shader programs to generate additional diagnostic data. This feature is disabled by default.

  • VK_VALIDATION_FEATURE_ENABLE_GPU_ASSISTED_RESERVE_BINDING_SLOT_EXT specifies that the validation layers reserve a descriptor set binding slot for their own use. The layer reports a value for VkPhysicalDeviceLimits::maxBoundDescriptorSets that is one less than the value reported by the device. If the device supports the binding of only one descriptor set, the validation layer does not perform GPU-assisted validation. This feature is disabled by default. The GPU-assisted validation feature must be enabled in order to use this feature.
