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 PURE RX 7900 GRE came in with a score of 8253, 153 points behind the Hellhound. It was however still up ahead of all of the original RTX 4070 Ti’s and 1249 points ahead of the RX 7800 XT.


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 PURE RX 7900 GRE did better on this test, coming in ahead of the Hellhound. Both cards are below the 4070 Ti here and ahead of the new RTX 4070 SUPER.
