Description

This extension adds a new VkPolygonMode enum where a triangle is rasterized by computing and filling its axis-aligned screen-space bounding box, disregarding the actual triangle edges. This can be useful for drawing a rectangle without being split into two triangles with an internal edge. It is also useful to minimize the number of primitives that need to be drawn, particularly for a user interface.
