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 RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition was just .02 FPS off from the 2080 Ti in the VR Future test which is 5 FPS over the RTX 3070.
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 RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition was still under the target FPS for the very demanding blue room test but it did come in right with the RTX 2080 Ti in the blue room and was even faster in the cyan room test. That put the 3070 Ti 8 FPS over the original 3070 for an 8.5% improvement.
