VR Benchmarks

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. I have also included the average frame rate as well which is important for the cards at the top of the chart because for some reason Superposition is capped at 10,000 for its scores and that doesn’t show the performance gap in those cards at the top. The TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti SUPER improved on the original TUF 4070 Ti by 3.6% here which wasn’t as good as I expected. With that, it is also behind the 3090 Ti and way behind the RX 7900 XT which scored a 9299 to the 8156 of the 4070 Ti SUPER.

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 TUF Gaming RTX 4070 Ti SUPER did better here matching the RX 7900 XT’s score and edging ahead slightly with three more points. The RTX 4080 is still out in front of course but the performance improvement for the SUPER here helped jump up past the RTX 3090 Ti and was 11.4% faster than the original non-SUPER model.
