VRMARK GPU Performance Review

VRMARK - Orange Room Test

 

VRMARK has two dedicated tests, the first of which is the Orange Room test, which is available in both the Free version of VRMARK and the paid for advanced version. Below is a graph showcasing performance results from out GPU test system with a selection of current generation and previous generation GPUs. 

We can see below that we have also included results from Futuremark for an Oculus Rift Ready PC and an HTC Vive/VR Ready PC, with scores of 3716 and 5000 respectively. We can see that modern GPUs like the RX 480 Strix and the GTX 1060 Strix easily meet the requirements for VR, with lower end hardware like the GTX 960 and the R9 380 meeting the requirements for the Oculus Rift.   

In general, it seems that on the high end that VRMARK favours Nvidia hardware, with the GTX 1060 beating the RX 480 and the GTX 980Ti beating the R9 Fury X, though all of these GPUs can be considered VR ready for both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.   

We can see that going past the GTX 980Ti that we see very little performance gain moving to newer and more powerful GPUs, hinting that CPU performance may be becoming a limiting factor. That being said the framerates coming from these GPUs are well over 180FPS on average, which is well in excess of what is required for VR gaming.

I care less about the scores rather than I care more about consistency and accuracy.

You notice anything weird using this? Like running the same PC multiple times and getting sporadic results? Or are they very close together and have a small range? Or even do the scores keep getting higher and higher if you run the test over and over? Just wondering here. Validating these results of any new benching suite is always the most important thing to do before running any test worth publishing imo.Quote

Great job Mark!

Very interested in testing this on my 2xMSI GTX 1070 Gaming X setup. I hope that the SLI configuration scales. I hope to be able to test it using one card and then the SLI setup. Question: Since both of the cards are hard piped into my WC loop, can I just disable "Optimize 3D" setting in the NVidia control panel. Or is the better way to do it to remove the SLI bridge? Taking one of the two cards out of the system is not going to happen

Just disable the Optimise 3D (Sli) in NCP and you should be golden.Quote

SLI support is very poor on this, 2 cards only scores a few points more than a single card.

Also some of the results obtained are a bit odd.

In the orange room my GTX 1080 is faster than 99% of systems

In the blue room my Pascal Titan is only faster than 87% of systems lol.

I think Futuremark have a few bugs to sort out with this new bench.

Always said them Titans were only good for paperweights.Quote
