=== Description
This extension provides the ability to determine device-specific properties
on NVIDIA GPUs.
It provides the number of streaming multiprocessors (SMs), the maximum
number of warps (subgroups) that can run on an SM, and shader builtins to
enable invocations to identify which SM and warp a shader invocation is
executing on.
This extension enables support for the SPIR-V code:ShaderSMBuiltinsNV
capability.
These properties and built-ins should: typically only be used for debugging
purposes.
=== New Object Types
None.
=== New Enum Constants
* Extending elink:VkStructureType:
** ename:VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_SHADER_SM_BUILTINS_FEATURES_NV
** ename:VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_SHADER_SM_BUILTINS_PROPERTIES_NV
=== New Enums
None.
=== New Structures
* slink:VkPhysicalDeviceShaderSMBuiltinsFeaturesNV
* slink:VkPhysicalDeviceShaderSMBuiltinsPropertiesNV
=== New Functions
None.
=== New or Modified Built-In Variables
* <<interfaces-builtin-variables-warpspersmnv,code:WarpsPerSMNV>>
* <<interfaces-builtin-variables-smcountnv,code:SMCountNV>>
* <<interfaces-builtin-variables-warpidnv,code:WarpIDNV>>
* <<interfaces-builtin-variables-smidnv,code:SMIDNV>>
=== New SPIR-V Capabilities

=== Issues
. What should we call this extension?

RESOLVED: Using NV_shader_sm_builtins.
Other options considered included:
* NV_shader_smid - but SMID is really easy to typo/confuse as SIMD.
* NV_shader_sm_info - but *Info* is typically reserved for input
