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 3080 Ti Founders Edition sits at the top of the charts with 94 FPS for a 7.6% improvement over the 3080.
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 3080 Ti Founders Edition was in a similar position here as well dominating the top of the chart without the RTX 3090 to take its crown. The 3080 Ti Founders Edition sits out 11% faster than the original RTX 3080 on the higher detail blue room and just under 8% on the lower detail cyan room test with a still crazy 330 FPS.
