C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT structure is defined as:

typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           shaderDemoteToHelperInvocation;
} VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT;


The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceShaderDemoteToHelperInvocationFeaturesEXT structure describe the following features:


  • shaderDemoteToHelperInvocation indicates whether the implementation supports the SPIR-V DemoteToHelperInvocationEXT capability.

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