        Some context on two of the extensions: Fast IO direct from SSD to GPU memory with decompression implemented in hardware was a big part of the launch hype with the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Microsoft DirectStorage is their way of exposing those features on their platform. Nvidia calls their implementation RTX IO (RTX IO Open Source Technology | NVIDIA Developer). They expose it in Vulkan as this pair of extensions: VK_NV_memory_decompression and VK_NV_copy_memory_indirect.
