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. Here the results were similar to the previous Superposition results with the 2080 SUPER just ahead of the Nitro+ 6700XT and the Nitro+ 6700XT out ahead of the other 6700XT’s.
My second round of VR testing was in VRMark which has two tests that are similar to the VR tests in Superposition. One is future-looking and extremely demanding and the other (cyan room) is more like modern VR games. The blue room results match up with the above superposition results only with the XFX edging out the Nitro+ 6700XT slightly. The 6700 XT’s really stand out in the cyan room test here competing with the RTX 2080 Ti and the 3070 in the slightly less demanding test.
