C Specification

If the pNext chain includes a VkDedicatedAllocationBufferCreateInfoNV structure, then that structure includes an enable controlling whether the buffer will have a dedicated memory allocation bound to it.

The VkDedicatedAllocationBufferCreateInfoNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_dedicated_allocation
typedef struct VkDedicatedAllocationBufferCreateInfoNV {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkBool32           dedicatedAllocation;
} VkDedicatedAllocationBufferCreateInfoNV;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • dedicatedAllocation specifies whether the buffer will have a dedicated allocation bound to it.


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