28.3. Sparse Partially-Resident Buffers

VkBuffer objects created with the VK_BUFFER_CREATE_SPARSE_RESIDENCY_BIT bit allow the buffer to be made only partially resident. Partially resident VkBuffer objects are allocated and bound identically to VkBuffer objects using only the VK_BUFFER_CREATE_SPARSE_BINDING_BIT feature. The only difference is the ability for some regions of the buffer to be unbound during device use.
