C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceSamplerFilterMinmaxProperties structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceSamplerFilterMinmaxProperties {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           filterMinmaxSingleComponentFormats;
    VkBool32           filterMinmaxImageComponentMapping;
} VkPhysicalDeviceSamplerFilterMinmaxProperties;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_EXT_sampler_filter_minmax
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceSamplerFilterMinmaxProperties VkPhysicalDeviceSamplerFilterMinmaxPropertiesEXT;

Members

The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceSamplerFilterMinmaxProperties structure describe the following implementation-dependent limits:

Description

  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • filterMinmaxSingleComponentFormats is a boolean value indicating whether a minimum set of required formats support min/max filtering.

  • filterMinmaxImageComponentMapping is a boolean value indicating whether the implementation supports non-identity component mapping of the image when doing min/max filtering.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceSamplerFilterMinmaxProperties structure is included in the pNext chain of VkPhysicalDeviceProperties2, it is filled with the implementation-dependent limits.

If filterMinmaxSingleComponentFormats is VK_TRUE, the following formats must support the VK_FORMAT_FEATURE_SAMPLED_IMAGE_FILTER_MINMAX_BIT feature with VK_IMAGE_TILING_OPTIMAL, if they support VK_FORMAT_FEATURE_SAMPLED_IMAGE_BIT.

  • VK_FORMAT_R8_UNORM

  • VK_FORMAT_R8_SNORM

  • VK_FORMAT_R16_UNORM

  • VK_FORMAT_R16_SNORM

  • VK_FORMAT_R16_SFLOAT

  • VK_FORMAT_R32_SFLOAT

  • VK_FORMAT_D16_UNORM

  • VK_FORMAT_X8_D24_UNORM_PACK32

  • VK_FORMAT_D32_SFLOAT

  • VK_FORMAT_D16_UNORM_S8_UINT

  • VK_FORMAT_D24_UNORM_S8_UINT

  • VK_FORMAT_D32_SFLOAT_S8_UINT

If the format is a depth/stencil format, this bit only specifies that the depth aspect (not the stencil aspect) of an image of this format supports min/max filtering, and that min/max filtering of the depth aspect is supported when depth compare is disabled in the sampler.

If filterMinmaxImageComponentMapping is VK_FALSE the component mapping of the image view used with min/max filtering must have been created with the r component set to the identity swizzle. Only the r component of the sampled image value is defined and the other component values are undefined. If filterMinmaxImageComponentMapping is VK_TRUE this restriction does not apply and image component mapping works as normal.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • sType must be VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_SAMPLER_FILTER_MINMAX_PROPERTIES
