A subpass shading pipeline’s workgroup size is a 2D vector with number of power-of-two in width and height. The maximum number of width and height is implementation dependent, and may vary for different formats and sample counts of attachments in a render pass.
To query the maximum workgroup size, call:
// Provided by VK_HUAWEI_subpass_shading VkResult vkGetDeviceSubpassShadingMaxWorkgroupSizeHUAWEI( VkDevice device, VkRenderPass renderpass, VkExtent2D* pMaxWorkgroupSize);
deviceis a handle to a local device object that was used to create the given render pass.
renderPassis a handle to a render pass object describing the environment in which the pipeline will be used. The pipeline must only be used with a render pass instance compatible with the one provided. See Render Pass Compatibility for more information.
pMaxWorkgroupSizeis a pointer to a VkExtent2D structure.
