VR Benchmark Tests for Android Devices

VRMark works with or without a headset to help you test and compare the VR performance of the latest smartphones.

VRMark Professional Edition, designed for industry and press use, combines three VR benchmark tests with three individual test modes to provide a comprehensive set of tools for testing the VR capabilities of the latest devices.

For VR enthusiasts at home, a free version of the app offers a smaller set of VR benchmark tests and experiences.

  • Test VR performance with three VR benchmarks, headset not required.
  • Benchmark peak performance for VR with Peak Mode.
  • Test performance over longer periods with Sustained Mode.
  • Judge the quality of the VR experience with Experience mode.
  • Detailed results and hardware monitoring charts.
  • Rank and compare the VR performance of the latest devices.

Three levels of VR benchmarking

VRMark Indigo Room Benchmark

Indigo Room

The Indigo Room test represents the majority of mobile VR content available today. It is a lightweight test that is designed to run comfortably for long periods on first-generation Daydream devices.

VRMark Purple Room Benchmark

Purple Room

The Purple Room benchmark is designed to run well for at least one loop on first-generation Daydream devices. Some phones will get hot when looping this test, and their performance may fall as the test runs.

VRMark Amber Room Benchmark

Amber Room

The Amber Room is a forward-looking test that represents next-generation mobile VR content. It is a demanding test that is ideal for comparing devices that already perform well in the other Rooms.

Three ways to test VR performance

VRMark Peak Mode icon

Peak Mode

Peak Mode measures a device’s peak performance by running a single loop of the benchmark test. This mode tells you how well a device can handle VR content for a short period of time, which is the best-case scenario for any device.

VRMark Sustained Mode icon

Sustained Mode

Use Sustained Mode to see if a device can maintain the required performance for VR over ten loops, one hour, a full day, or even longer without heating up or slowing down. This helps you uncover thermal and stability issues that affect VR performance.

VRMark Experience Mode icon

Experience Mode

Use Experience Mode to judge the quality of the VR experience with your own eyes. Connect a headset and see for yourself how well a device compensates for missed frames. VRMark supports Daydream View and Google Cardboard compatible headsets.
