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 3060 AMP White Edition fell right in the middle of the pack as far as all of the cards tested. It ran at 44.89 FPS in the VR Future test which was nearly a full FPS ahead of the overclocked MSI 3060 Gaming X Trio which put it in with the overclocked 2060 SUPERs and ahead of the Radeon VII. Its VR Medium FPS of 117.79 is a little slower than the 2060 SUPERs, however.
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 3060 AMP White Edition ran at 59.92 FPS in the blue room test which was 1 and a half FPS above the overclocked MSI 3060 Gaming X Trio, again putting it up in the mix with the 2060 SUPERs and here the cyan room result of 203.06 FPS was faster than the 2060 SUPERs.
