Expand description

Represents the sets of limits an adapter/device supports.

We provide three different defaults.

  • Limits::downlevel_defaults(). This is a set of limits that is guaranteed to work on almost all backends, including “downlevel” backends such as OpenGL and D3D11, other than WebGL. For most applications we recommend using these limits, assuming they are high enough for your application, and you do not intent to support WebGL.
  • Limits::downlevel_webgl2_defaults() This is a set of limits that is lower even than the downlevel_defaults(), configured to be low enough to support running in the browser using WebGL2.
  • Limits::default(). This is the set of limits that is guarenteed to work on all modern backends and is guarenteed to be supported by WebGPU. Applications needing more modern features can use this as a reasonable set of limits if they are targetting only desktop and modern mobile devices.

We recommend starting with the most restrictive limits you can and manually increasing the limits you need boosted. This will let you stay running on all hardware that supports the limits you need.

Limits “better” than the default must be supported by the adapter and requested when requesting a device. If limits “better” than the adapter supports are requested, requesting a device will panic. Once a device is requested, you may only use resources up to the limits requested even if the adapter supports “better” limits.

Requesting limits that are “better” than you need may cause performance to decrease because the implementation needs to support more than is needed. You should ideally only request exactly what you need.

Corresponds to WebGPU GPUSupportedLimits.

Fields

max_texture_dimension_1d: u32

Maximum allowed value for the size.width of a texture created with TextureDimension::D1. Defaults to 8192. Higher is “better”.

max_texture_dimension_2d: u32

Maximum allowed value for the size.width and size.height of a texture created with TextureDimension::D2. Defaults to 8192. Higher is “better”.

max_texture_dimension_3d: u32

Maximum allowed value for the size.width, size.height, and size.depth_or_array_layers of a texture created with TextureDimension::D3. Defaults to 2048. Higher is “better”.

max_texture_array_layers: u32

Maximum allowed value for the size.depth_or_array_layers of a texture created with TextureDimension::D1 or TextureDimension::D2. Defaults to 256. Higher is “better”.

max_bind_groups: u32

Amount of bind groups that can be attached to a pipeline at the same time. Defaults to 4. Higher is “better”.

max_dynamic_uniform_buffers_per_pipeline_layout: u32

Amount of uniform buffer bindings that can be dynamic in a single pipeline. Defaults to 8. Higher is “better”.

max_dynamic_storage_buffers_per_pipeline_layout: u32

Amount of storage buffer bindings that can be dynamic in a single pipeline. Defaults to 4. Higher is “better”.

max_sampled_textures_per_shader_stage: u32

Amount of sampled textures visible in a single shader stage. Defaults to 16. Higher is “better”.

max_samplers_per_shader_stage: u32

Amount of samplers visible in a single shader stage. Defaults to 16. Higher is “better”.

max_storage_buffers_per_shader_stage: u32

Amount of storage buffers visible in a single shader stage. Defaults to 8. Higher is “better”.

max_storage_textures_per_shader_stage: u32

Amount of storage textures visible in a single shader stage. Defaults to 8. Higher is “better”.

max_uniform_buffers_per_shader_stage: u32

Amount of uniform buffers visible in a single shader stage. Defaults to 12. Higher is “better”.

max_uniform_buffer_binding_size: u32

Maximum size in bytes of a binding to a uniform buffer. Defaults to 64 KB. Higher is “better”.

max_storage_buffer_binding_size: u32

Maximum size in bytes of a binding to a storage buffer. Defaults to 128 MB. Higher is “better”.

max_vertex_buffers: u32

Maximum length of VertexState::buffers when creating a RenderPipeline. Defaults to 8. Higher is “better”.

max_vertex_attributes: u32

Maximum length of VertexBufferLayout::attributes, summed over all VertexState::buffers, when creating a RenderPipeline. Defaults to 16. Higher is “better”.

max_vertex_buffer_array_stride: u32

Maximum value for VertexBufferLayout::array_stride when creating a RenderPipeline. Defaults to 2048. Higher is “better”.

max_push_constant_size: u32

Amount of storage available for push constants in bytes. Defaults to 0. Higher is “better”. Requesting more than 0 during device creation requires Features::PUSH_CONSTANTS to be enabled.

Expect the size to be:

  • Vulkan: 128-256 bytes
  • DX12: 256 bytes
  • Metal: 4096 bytes
  • DX11 & OpenGL don’t natively support push constants, and are emulated with uniforms, so this number is less useful but likely 256.
min_uniform_buffer_offset_alignment: u32

Required BufferBindingType::Uniform alignment for BufferBinding::offset when creating a BindGroup, or for set_bind_group dynamicOffsets. Defaults to 256. Lower is “better”.

min_storage_buffer_offset_alignment: u32

Required BufferBindingType::Storage alignment for BufferBinding::offset when creating a BindGroup, or for set_bind_group dynamicOffsets. Defaults to 256. Lower is “better”.

max_inter_stage_shader_components: u32

Maximum allowed number of components (scalars) of input or output locations for inter-stage communication (vertex outputs to fragment inputs). Defaults to 60.

max_compute_workgroup_storage_size: u32

Maximum number of bytes used for workgroup memory in a compute entry point. Defaults to 16352.

max_compute_invocations_per_workgroup: u32

Maximum value of the product of the workgroup_size dimensions for a compute entry-point. Defaults to 256.

max_compute_workgroup_size_x: u32

The maximum value of the workgroup_size X dimension for a compute stage ShaderModule entry-point. Defaults to 256.

max_compute_workgroup_size_y: u32

The maximum value of the workgroup_size Y dimension for a compute stage ShaderModule entry-point. Defaults to 256.

max_compute_workgroup_size_z: u32

The maximum value of the workgroup_size Z dimension for a compute stage ShaderModule entry-point. Defaults to 64.

max_compute_workgroups_per_dimension: u32

The maximum value for each dimension of a ComputePass::dispatch(x, y, z) operation. Defaults to 65535.

Implementations

These default limits are guarenteed to be compatible with GLES-3.1, and D3D11

These default limits are guarenteed to be compatible with GLES-3.0, and D3D11, and WebGL2

Modify the current limits to use the resolution limits of the other.

This is useful because the swapchain might need to be larger than any other image in the application.

If your application only needs 512x512, you might be running on a 4k display and need extremely high resolution limits.

Modify the current limits to use the buffer alignment limits of the adapter.

This is useful for when you’d like to dynamically use the “best” supported buffer alignments.

Compares every limits within self is within the limits given in allowed.

If you need detailed information on failures, look at Limits::check_limits_with_fail_fn.

Compares every limits within self is within the limits given in allowed. For an easy to use binary choice, use Limits::check_limits.

If a value is not within the allowed limit, this function calls the fail_fn with the:

  • limit name
  • self’s limit
  • allowed’s limit.

If fatal is true, a single failure bails out the comparison after a single failure.
