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 Future test using the Oculus resolution. Here the RTX 4090 Founders Edition is up at the top but the gap here is a lot smaller than we saw in the base superposition tests. The big thing to note here is that with a score of 10000 the RTX 4090 maxed out this test so we don’t even know how much higher it could have scored but the smaller gap between it and the RTX 3090 Ti indicates it most likely would have been a lot more still.
My second round of VR testing was in VRMark which has three tests that are similar to the VR tests in Superposition. I only focused on just the most demanding test called Blue Room which is looking more at future VR performance. The RTX 4090 Founders Edition did better here with it scoring twice as many points compared to the 3080 Ti and is 5125 points ahead of the RTX 3090 Ti.
