C Specification

The VkBufferDeviceAddressInfo structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkBufferDeviceAddressInfo {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkBuffer           buffer;
} VkBufferDeviceAddressInfo;

or the equivalent

typedef VkBufferDeviceAddressInfo VkBufferDeviceAddressInfoKHR;

or the equivalent

typedef VkBufferDeviceAddressInfo VkBufferDeviceAddressInfoEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to an extension-specific structure.

  • buffer specifies the buffer whose address is being queried.


Valid Usage
  • If buffer is non-sparse and was not created with the VK_BUFFER_CREATE_DEVICE_ADDRESS_CAPTURE_REPLAY_BIT flag, then it must be bound completely and contiguously to a single VkDeviceMemory object

  • buffer must have been created with VK_BUFFER_USAGE_SHADER_DEVICE_ADDRESS_BIT

Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • pNext must be NULL

  • buffer must be a valid VkBuffer handle
