VR Benchmarks

The number of consistent VR benchmarks on the market isn’t very high so our VR testing really is limited to two programs. The SteamVR test that is really only good at showing which cards are capable of VR at all and the VRMark benchmarks. The SteamVR result for the RTX 2070 wasn’t a shocker, it maxes out the rating just like every other higher end card on the market.


The VRMark tests, on the other hand, are a lot more interesting. The orange room test is a modern day test testing for basic VR performance, the blue room tests for high-end future performance, and then the cyan room falls in between testing for modern day games that have high detail. So in the blue room test, the RTX 2070 comes in a few FPS behind the GTX 1080 Ti. The cyan test, however, shows performance only beat by the other RTX cards and then the orange room, well its results on the high-end cards are closer to SteamVR where once you get in the 200 FPS range it stops showing a big gap between cards.

So based on your testing compared to my own in house testing with 3D Mark (I use 3D Mark as it gives a direct horse power to horse power comparative without brand specific optimizations getting in the way) the Sapphire Vega 56 is only about 3% slower but costs 20% less :-) NICE....

Just saying, you could send a Sapphire Vega 56 over and we can put those numbers down on the same system. We have been lacking the 56 for all of this testing :(
