Steam VR test

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have a Ryzen 5 2400g OC'd to 3.8ghz with a RX 570 OC'd to 1380 mhz and 8gb of 3200 mhz DDR4 RAM. A few months ago, I ran the steam VR benchmark test, which gave me results anywhere from 6.0 to 6.1. I was bored last night and ran the test but this time only achieved a 5.8. I ran it again...5.7. Then I decided that maybe I had processes running in the background which may be taxing the system, so I rebooted and tried again...I got another 5.8.

 

As far as I know, nothing has changed on my system but I downgraded from 'VR ready' to 'VR capable' What the heck? Should I take the results with a grain of sand?

Could just be right on the edge. Not like every run is gonna be the same and it sounds like within a margin of error so i wouldnt worry too much about it.

You're probably right, 6.0-6.1 is barely within 'VR ready' territory anyways. I'm still really impressed with this $130 RX570

It sure is! I saw another poster write that it is a one in a million card as far as price to performance ratio. The card isn't 'ideal' for VR if you want the very best quality settings. I don't have any issues with VR games, the settings usually default to medium, sometimes low and the frame rates are perfectly acceptable for me (between 80-90 fps). Flat screen games like the Division 2, Resident Evil 2 and Assassins Creed Unity run right around 60 fps on 1080 'high' settings. Even if I select 1080 'ultra' settings, games are still playable around 40-50 fps - just not as enjoyable IMO.
