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, wouldn’t it be good to know that your PC is ready for VR?
VRMark includes two VR benchmark tests that run on your monitor, no headset required, or on a connected HMD. Run these tests before you buy an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift and see if your PC has what it takes to deliver a great VR experience.
After each test, you’ll see clearly whether your PC is VR-ready or not. You get an overall score for your PC, which you can use to compare systems, and detailed charts showing how your PC performed.
There is also a free-roaming Experience mode that lets you judge the quality of the VR experience with your own eyes. Take your time and explore each scene in VR or on your monitor.
