The render passes feature is new for Windows 10, version 1809 (10.0; Build 17763), and it introduces the concept of a Direct3D 12 render pass. A render pass consists of a subset of the commands that you record into a command list.

To declare where each render pass begins and ends, you nest the commands belonging to that pass inside calls to ID3D12GraphicsCommandList4::BeginRenderPass and EndRenderPass. Consequently, any command list contains zero, one, or more render passes.


More or less what Vulkan has since its first days...
