Basemark and Crytek Release a VR Score Benchmark
Cernescu Andrei / 2 years ago
Those of you who want to test your PC in order to see if it can handle VR gaming will definitely want to hear about this new benchmark developed by Basemark and Crytek. Dubbed VRScore, the benchmark was designed as a real-world performance test, and it is based on the acclaimed CryEngine. The product includes several different tests, including some for spatial audio, videos and VR games, and it’s also worth pointing out that it supports DirectX 12. Fortunately, you don’t actually need a VR headset in order to test your PC with VRScore, but keep in mind that the benchmark will simulate the needs of high-end products such as the HTC Vive, which needs a gaming resolution of 2160×1200 as well as a refresh rate of 90Hz in order to work properly.
Corporate customers are already able to use this new benchmarking tool while regular users will be able to get their hands on it in June. If you’ll want to try it out for free, you will be able to download the benchmark’s free but limited version, but the paid Pro version is probably the way to go if you want to enjoy all that VRScore has to offer. Moreover, Basemark has also announced a new device named VRScore Trek, which was designed to test the performance of VR headsets.
