D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL Enumeration

The D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL enumeration type contains values that identify the pipeline level that the driver supports, which is retrieved from a call to the driver's GetCaps(D3D10_2) function.

Syntax

typedef enum D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL {
  D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_10_0,
  D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_10_1,
  D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_11_0,
  D3D11_1DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_11_1,
  D3D11_1DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_9_1,
  D3D11_1DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_9_2,
  D3D11_1DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_9_3,
  D3DWDDM2_0DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_12_0,
  D3DWDDM2_0DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_12_1
} ;

Constants

D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_10_0 The driver supports Direct3D version 10 pipeline.
D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_10_1 The driver supports Direct3D version 10.1 pipeline.
D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_11_0 The driver supports Direct3D version 11 pipeline.
D3D11_1DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_11_1 Supported beginning with Windows 8.

The driver supports Direct3D version 11.1 pipeline.

D3D11_1DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_9_1 Supported beginning with Windows 8.

The driver supports Direct3D version 9.1 pipeline.

D3D11_1DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_9_2 Supported beginning with Windows 8.

The driver supports Direct3D version 9.2 pipeline.

D3D11_1DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_9_3 Supported beginning with Windows 8.

The driver supports Direct3D version 9.3 pipeline.

D3DWDDM2_0DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_12_0 The driver supports Direct3D version 12.0 pipeline.
D3DWDDM2_0DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL_12_1 The driver supports Direct3D version 12.1 pipeline.

Remarks

The driver uses one of the values from the D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL enumeration and the following macro to encode the 3-D pipeline level:

#define D3D11DDI_ENCODE_3DPIPELINESUPPORT_CAP( Level ) (0x1 << Level)

The driver then uses the macro's result in the Caps member of the D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINESUPPORT_CAPS structure to provide information to the Direct3D runtime when the runtime calls the driver's GetCaps(D3D10_2) function with the Type member of D3D10_2DDIARG_GETCAPS set to D3D11DDICAPS_3DPIPELINESUPPORT.

The driver uses the following constant and macros to extract one of the values from the D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL enumeration that represents the 3-D pipeline level to set for a display device. The driver extracts the value from the Caps member of D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINESUPPORT_CAPS. The driver uses the 3-D pipeline level to create the appropriate display device when the driver receives a call to its CreateDevice(D3D10) function.

#define D3D11DDI_CREATEDEVICE_FLAG_3DPIPELINESUPPORT_SHIFT (0x1)
#define D3D11DDI_CREATEDEVICE_FLAG_3DPIPELINESUPPORT_MASK (0x7 << D3D11DDI_CREATEDEVICE_FLAG_3DPIPELINESUPPORT_SHIFT)
#define D3D11DDI_EXTRACT_3DPIPELINELEVEL_FROM_FLAGS( Flags ) \
    ((D3D11DDI_3DPIPELINELEVEL)(((Flags) & D3D11DDI_CREATEDEVICE_FLAG_3DPIPELINESUPPORT_MASK) >> \
    D3D11DDI_CREATEDEVICE_FLAG_3DPIPELINESUPPORT_SHIFT))
