C Specification

To query 64-bit atomic support for signed and unsigned integers call vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 with a VkPhysicalDeviceShaderAtomicInt64Features structure included in the pNext chain of its pFeatures parameter.

The VkPhysicalDeviceShaderAtomicInt64Features structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceShaderAtomicInt64Features {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           shaderBufferInt64Atomics;
    VkBool32           shaderSharedInt64Atomics;
} VkPhysicalDeviceShaderAtomicInt64Features;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_shader_atomic_int64
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceShaderAtomicInt64Features VkPhysicalDeviceShaderAtomicInt64FeaturesKHR;

Members

  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

Description

  • shaderBufferInt64Atomics indicates whether shaders can perform 64-bit unsigned and signed integer atomic operations on buffers.

  • shaderSharedInt64Atomics indicates whether shaders can perform 64-bit unsigned and signed integer atomic operations on shared memory.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • sType must be VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_SHADER_ATOMIC_INT64_FEATURES
