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 XFX Qick319 RX 7600 XT Black scored a 4114 compared to the 4026 of the stock-clocked RX 7600, this put it behind the RTX 3060 Ti and the 4060 Ti but ahead of the RTX 4060.
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 XFX Qick319 RX 7600 XT Black is lumped in with the other Radeon RX 7600 here again as well as the RTX 3060 which is in the middle of them but the XFX Qick319 RX 7600 XT Black does have a small lead on the 7600 Gaming OC which has a big overclock. The RTX 4060s are both still ahead here though.
