C Specification

In addition to the minimum capabilities described for (Limits) above, implementations may support additional multisampling capabilities specific to a particular sample count.

To query additional sample count specific multisampling capabilities, call:

void vkGetPhysicalDeviceMultisamplePropertiesEXT(
    VkPhysicalDevice                            physicalDevice,
    VkSampleCountFlagBits                       samples,
    VkMultisamplePropertiesEXT*                 pMultisampleProperties);


  • physicalDevice is the physical device from which to query the additional multisampling capabilities.

  • samples is the sample count to query the capabilities for.

  • pMultisampleProperties is a pointer to a structure of type VkMultisamplePropertiesEXT, in which information about the additional multisampling capabilities specific to the sample count is returned.


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

  • samples must be a valid VkSampleCountFlagBits value

  • pMultisampleProperties must be a valid pointer to a VkMultisamplePropertiesEXT structure
