SPIR-V Module

An SPV file may also be a SPIR-V module. It contains a shader used to give depth to 3D graphics. Graphics APIs like Vulkan, OpenCL, and OpenGL use SPV files to render 3D objects.

More Information

Standard Portable Intermediate Representation V (SPIR-V) is a binary intermediate language for graphical shaders and compute kernels. Khronos Group released SPIR-V in 2015, replacing the original version of SPIR.

Developers using SPIR-V save shader modules as SPV files. For example, developers can use Khronos Group's Glslang tool to convert .HLSL shaders into SPV files. These files contain a list of capabilities, global interfaces, entry points, and functions that determine how the shader affects an object's appearance.

How to open an SPV file

You can use Khronos Group SPIR-V Tools (multiplatform) to parse, disassemble, validate, and optimize SPV files.

How to convert an SPV file

Khronos Group SPIRV-Cross (multiplatform) can convert SPV shaders to the following formats:

  • .GLSL - GLSL Shader
  • .HLSL - High Level Shader Language
  • MSL - Metal Shading Langague
  • .JSON - JavaScript Object Notation
