C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceTimelineSemaphoreFeatures structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceTimelineSemaphoreFeatures {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           timelineSemaphore;
} VkPhysicalDeviceTimelineSemaphoreFeatures;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_timeline_semaphore
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceTimelineSemaphoreFeatures VkPhysicalDeviceTimelineSemaphoreFeaturesKHR;


The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceTimelineSemaphoreFeatures structure describe the following features:


  • timelineSemaphore indicates whether semaphores created with a VkSemaphoreType of VK_SEMAPHORE_TYPE_TIMELINE are supported.

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

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