Is your PC ready for VR? Find out with VRMark
November 3, 2016
We are excited to announce the public release of VRMark, our new VR benchmark.
The performance requirements for VR games are much higher than for typical PC games. So if you're thinking about buying an HTC Vive or an Oculus Rift this holiday, wouldn't it be good to know that your PC is ready for VR?
VRMark comes with two VR benchmark tests, which you can run on your desktop monitor or on a VR headset. At the end of each test, you'll see whether your PC is VR-ready, and if not, how far it falls short. There is also a free-roaming Experience mode that lets you judge the quality of the VR experience with your own eyes.
Orange Room benchmark
The VRMark Orange Room benchmark shows the impressive level of detail that can be achieved on a PC that meets the recommended hardware requirements for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. If your PC passes this test, it's ready for the two most popular VR systems available today.
Blue Room benchmark
The VRMark Blue Room benchmark is a more demanding test with a greater level of detail. It is the ideal benchmark for comparing high-end systems with specs above the recommended requirements for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. A PC that passes this test will be able to run the latest VR games at the highest settings, and may even be VR-ready for the next generation of VR headsets.
Results and reporting
After running a benchmark, you'll see clearly whether your PC is VR-ready or not. To pass, your PC has to meet or exceed the target frame rate without dropping frames. You also get an overall score, which you can use to compare systems.
Hardware monitoring charts show how your PC performed frame-by-frame. There are charts for frame rate, GPU frequency, GPU load, and GPU temperature.
VR headsets use clever techniques to compensate for missed frames. With Experience mode, you can judge the quality of the VR experience with your own eyes. Explore each scene in your own time in VR or on your monitor.
VRMark Experience mode features free movement, spatial audio, and an interactive flashlight for lighting up the details of the scene.
