C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceMeshShaderFeaturesNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_mesh_shader
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceMeshShaderFeaturesNV {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           taskShader;
    VkBool32           meshShader;
} VkPhysicalDeviceMeshShaderFeaturesNV;


  • taskShader indicates whether the task shader stage is supported.

  • meshShader indicates whether the mesh shader stage is supported.


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

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceMeshShaderFeaturesNV-sType-sType
