C Specification

A queue can be created with a system-wide priority by adding a VkDeviceQueueGlobalPriorityCreateInfoEXT structure to the pNext chain of VkDeviceQueueCreateInfo.

The VkDeviceQueueGlobalPriorityCreateInfoEXT structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkDeviceQueueGlobalPriorityCreateInfoEXT {
    VkStructureType             sType;
    const void*                 pNext;
    VkQueueGlobalPriorityEXT    globalPriority;
} VkDeviceQueueGlobalPriorityCreateInfoEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • globalPriority is the system-wide priority associated to this queue as specified by VkQueueGlobalPriorityEXT


A queue created without specifying VkDeviceQueueGlobalPriorityCreateInfoEXT will default to VK_QUEUE_GLOBAL_PRIORITY_MEDIUM_EXT.

Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • globalPriority must be a valid VkQueueGlobalPriorityEXT value
