When I call
vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties and examine the
apiVersion field for a MoltenVK device it says version 1.0.141. That is consistent with MoltenVK’s issue tracker (issue 822) that they still do not support Vulkan 1.1. But, what does the minor version (0) mean? Are the minor version and patch versions completely independent? And why is there information floating around claiming that MoltenVK supports Vulkan 1.2 already? (Just google “MoltenVK Vulkan 1.2”.)
I feel like I’m missing something: Is it possible to ignore the version and use some 1.1 and 1.2 functionality regardless? I’ve tried activating the
debug_PRINTF layer but it won’t load since it requires Vulkan 1.1.
Thanks for any insights,
