As for Virtual Reality, I love it but it is more demanding than traditional gaming. This is partially because of the resolutions needed to render for two eyes and because they render more than what is immediately visible. But also because of post effects to get the proper “fisheye” effect for it to look proper in your eyes with the HMD. You also have to have much higher expectations for frame rates in VR, skipping frames or lower FPS can cause motion sickness in VR. Because of that, I ran a few tests.
My first test was again in Superposition. This time I tested the VR Maximum and VR Future tests using the Vive resolution. This was similar to my other Superposition testing with the Merc 319 coming in just behind the two RTX 3080’s in the more demanding VR future testing and doing well in the VR maximum test.
In VRMark the Merc 319 topped the chart with 122.53 FPS in the always demanding blue room test. This is well over the 1090 target FPS as well which only a few cards reach. Then it stands out in the cyan room test with 35 FPS over the Suprim X 3080.
