Overview of Vulkan Descriptor Indexing (VK_EXT_descriptor_indexing) on Mobiles

I have already discussed two of these extensions in previous blogs - Maintenance Extensions and Legacy Support Extensions. However, there are three further Vulkan extensions for Android that I believe are game changers. In the first of three blogs, I will explore these individual game changer extensions – what they do, why they can be useful and how to use them. The goal here is to not provide complete samples, but there should be enough to get you started. The first Vulkan extension is ‘Descriptor Indexing.’ Descriptor indexing can be available in handsets prior to Android R release.
