If you have installed the known benchmarking software 3DMark from Steam, perhaps you may have encountered a generous upgrade of more than 1 GB that leads to the application version v2.0.1979 which not only includes a new interface or improvements, but also a preview of what will be its benchmark focused on virtual reality, we are talking about already known VRMark, which left its beta status and now accessible to all users.
3DMark is updated to add the VRMark Benchmark
In spite of the update, it’s not yet included the Time Spy benchmark based on the DirectX 12 API, although Futuremark states that they will soon implement it, there is no doubt in it that it will be the most interesting benchmark. Regarding the preview of the VRMark benchmark, the application does not yet offer a performance score, so we have to wait for the final version to start adding the comparative performance of graphics cards on the use of Rift Oculus or HTC Vive.
Already more than a dozen of different VR headsets are in various stages of development. Analysts predict that VR will reach 10.8 million users at the end of 2016, said Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark’s managing director.
