C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceComputeShaderDerivativesFeaturesNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_compute_shader_derivatives
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceComputeShaderDerivativesFeaturesNV {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           computeDerivativeGroupQuads;
    VkBool32           computeDerivativeGroupLinear;
} VkPhysicalDeviceComputeShaderDerivativesFeaturesNV;


The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceComputeShaderDerivativesFeaturesNV structure describe the following features:


  • computeDerivativeGroupQuads indicates that the implementation supports the ComputeDerivativeGroupQuadsNV SPIR-V capability.

  • computeDerivativeGroupLinear indicates that the implementation supports the ComputeDerivativeGroupLinearNV SPIR-V capability.

See Compute Shader Derivatives for more information.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceComputeShaderDerivativesFeaturesNV structure is included in the pNext chain of VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled with values indicating whether each feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceComputeShaderDerivativesFeaturesNV can also be included in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to enable features.
