C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceShadingRateImageFeaturesNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_shading_rate_image
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceShadingRateImageFeaturesNV {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           shadingRateImage;
    VkBool32           shadingRateCoarseSampleOrder;
} VkPhysicalDeviceShadingRateImageFeaturesNV;


The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceShadingRateImageFeaturesNV structure describe the following features:


  • shadingRateImage indicates that the implementation supports the use of a shading rate image to derive an effective shading rate for fragment processing. It also indicates that the implementation supports the ShadingRateNV SPIR-V execution mode.

  • shadingRateCoarseSampleOrder indicates that the implementation supports a user-configurable ordering of coverage samples in fragments larger than one pixel.

See Shading Rate Image for more information.

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

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