This extension adds more dynamic states. This allows applications to reduce the need to recompile and bind pipeline state objects.
This extension allows applications to store application-defined data in a 64-bit private data slot.
This extension adds stricter requirements such that drivers return default RGBA values instead of undefined values for out-of-bounds reads. The number of components returned depends on the number of components present in the selected format.
This extension indicates the driver’s support for shader modules using the SPV_GOOGLE_user_type SPIR-V extension.
