Description

This extension exposes shader core properties for a target physical device through the VK_KHR_get_physical_device_properties2 extension. Please refer to the example below for proper usage.

New Enum Constants

  • VK_AMD_SHADER_CORE_PROPERTIES_EXTENSION_NAME

  • VK_AMD_SHADER_CORE_PROPERTIES_SPEC_VERSION

  • Extending VkStructureType:

    • VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_SHADER_CORE_PROPERTIES_AMD

Examples

This example retrieves the shader core properties for a physical device.

extern VkInstance       instance;

PFN_vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2 pfnVkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2 =
    reinterpret_cast<PFN_vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2>
    (vkGetInstanceProcAddr(instance, "vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2") );

VkPhysicalDeviceProperties2             general_props;
VkPhysicalDeviceShaderCorePropertiesAMD shader_core_properties;

shader_core_properties.pNext = nullptr;
shader_core_properties.sType = VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_SHADER_CORE_PROPERTIES_AMD;

general_props.pNext = &shader_core_properties;
general_props.sType = VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_PROPERTIES_2;

// After this call, shader_core_properties has been populated
pfnVkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2(device, &general_props);
