Just upgraded to a completely new system for video editing just before Christmas. My old one was very capable when I bought it but not quite VR ready.


Rig name KingstonOne
Cpu i7 8086 limited edition 12 core
Gpu GTX1070ti 4.01GHz
Ram 16 GB 3200 DDR4 RAM
Score OPEN GL - 136.18 FPS  CPU - 1392


Of course, I had to get an Oculus Rift to go with it. Runs great on this system.

Valve claims that only 9.4% of current gaming rigs are ready for VR... but as that number is based on the results of the Steam Hardware Survey, we don't think that it paints an accurate picture of the proportion of gaming PCs that are ready for VR that people actually intend to use for VR gaming.

So, being a part of this awesome forum community full of enthusiasts, we decided to see if we could paint a more accurate picture of the current state of the "VR for PC" market.

If you plan on using your gaming PC for VR, please take part in this test. Run the SteamVR Performance Test that Valve currently has available (through steam, you can find it at this link), and once you have your results, please do the following:

1. Comment below listing the following specs of your PC:
Rig name 

2. Add a screenshot of your SteamVR Performance Test results.

3. Answer the poll question in this thread.

And that is all we need! Thanks so much for taking part in this fun little survey - let's see how many of you are truly ready for VR gaming!

If you thought this was cool and want to take part in another fun survey that we have here on the forum, check out @Jumper118's Cinebench R15 thread here.

Cpu:i5 4690k @3.5ghz

Gpu:rtx 2070 gigabyte windforce

Ram:16gb ddr3

Score: average fedelity was 11, frames were somewhere in the 16000s. Ill go get a screenshot when i get home


As for buying a vr headset, i already spent enough money these past couple months on a 1440p 144hz monitor, a gpu, ssd and ram. I think im good(except for the cpu bottleneck

I did a factory reset on my computer today, and surprisingly, with all drivers and BIOS updated, I achieved a lower score then I did before I removed all the stuff on the computer.


Laptop using an eGPU: 

Dell XPS 15 9570
i7 - 8750H
Asus GTX 1070 (eGPU Omen Accelerator) 
16 GB
7.2 (post-factory reset) -7.8 (pre-factory reset)

That's strange, I have a Ryzen 2400G with a Gigabyte RX570 w/ 4gb of memory and only 8 gb of DDR3200 system RAM and SteamVR shows it as 'VR ready' (but just barely)


I don't know if it's holding a steady 90 fps for everything but I haven't had any issues out of the Oculus and steam games I've thrown at it so far.

I realize this is an old thread but I came across this and thought I would share my results!

Rig name: Dell Precision 7540

CPU: Intel Core i7-9750H

GPU: EVGA GTX 980 Superclocked @ 1464 MHz/ 2055 MHz core/mem (connected via eGPU chassis running Thunderbolt 3, PCIe 3.0 x4)

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x8GB 3200 MHz CL18 18-18-43 2T

Score: 8.3




I am aware that it shows the UHD Graphics 630 as the GPU, however it actually is using the 980 for this test. I got ~30FPS with the iGPU, even with the 3200 MHz shared RAM. The i7-9750H is turbo clocked and undervolted, and the cache is limited to 32x-34x, because it helps provide consistent performance and temps (I have a setting for 39x-42x but the power draw causes power throttling), but other than that, looking at some other comments, I am pretty surprised this GTX 980 is holding up, especially against desktops!\


EDIT: Just wanted to add that under this test, my 980 runs at 72°C, and the GPU consumes ~190-198W (a range on multiple results). The fan speed is set to 37% as it is the maximum speed the fans can run before producing whine noise, which is ~1650RPM. I also replaced the thermal compound with ICD, hence these results.

Old Dell Budget Build

CPU: Intel Core i5-3550 (Stock Speed)

GPU: SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 480 8G GDDR5 (Memory OC)

RAM: 2x2GB G.Skill 1600Mhz (underclocked to 1333Mhz) CAS 8-9-9-9
2x2GB Nanya 1333Mhz 8-9-10-11

Score: 6.6


Will test again in Windows 10 in the future, I just wanna see how it holds on Windows 7.

RTX 2070

System drive - Intel SSDPEKKW512G7 (m.2)

Game drive - 2 x Samsung 860 Evo 1TB (RAID 0)


Looks like I'm GPU bound from what taskmanager is reporting. The CPU sat at a cool 25% the whole time but the GPU was pinned at 100% but despite that the GPU stayed under 63 degrees celsius.
