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 SUPRIM X gained just under 3 FPS over the 2080 Ti and the 3070 Ti Founders Editions.
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 SUPRIM X performed similarly to in Superposition here in VRMark with the high detail blue room performance gaming 2 and a half FPS but being far from the 120 FPS of the RTX 3080. It was however enough o pass the RTX 2080 Ti.
