VR Benchmarks

I love VR gaming but it is more demanding than traditional games because of the frame rate that is required for things to feel smooth. To test this there aren’t enough tests that you the reader can also run for comparison so I only have the SteamVR benchmark and VRMark to test with. Hopefully, we see more options soon. The SteamVR test is dated and was just a simple test to make sure a video card can handle the basic VR experience, all of the RTX cards have maxed out this result so there isn’t much to learn from that test.


The VRMark test, on the other hand, lets us look at a few aspects. So orange room is a lower end test similar to the SteamVR test which shows current day basic game performance, blue room is future looking for much more demanding games, and cyan fits in the middle with demanding current day VR game performance. The orange room results are basically off the charts so there isn’t any point in worrying about those. Blue room, well none of the cards have reached the FPS target on it but you can see that the RTX 2070 SUPER FE is right up at the top with just the RTX 2080 cards and the RTX 2080 Ti being quicker. This was a big jump over the GTX 1080 Ti and the original RTX 2070. The Cyan results are getting close to being like the orange room results with nearly every card I’ve tested coming in ahead of the target FPS but at 233.45 FPS the 2070 SUPER isn’t going to have any trouble with any of today's VR titles.
