C Specification

To query memory properties, call:

void vkGetPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties2(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    VkPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties2*          pMemoryProperties);

or the equivalent command

void vkGetPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties2KHR(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    VkPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties2*          pMemoryProperties);


  • physicalDevice is the handle to the device to query.

  • pMemoryProperties is a pointer to a VkPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties2 structure in which the properties are returned.


vkGetPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties2 behaves similarly to vkGetPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties, with the ability to return extended information in a pNext chain of output structures.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • physicalDevice must be a valid VkPhysicalDevice handle

  • pMemoryProperties must be a valid pointer to a VkPhysicalDeviceMemoryProperties2 structure
