Helsinki, Finland, January 30, 2017 – Basemark today proudly launched VRScore PC, the world’s first VR benchmark with DirectX 12 support. VRScore PC measures PC and Head Mounted Display (HMD) rendering performance and latency in Virtual Reality (VR) applications. VRScore PC also supports DirectX 11, thereby enabling more wide ranging comparisons with PCs and HMDs that do not support DirectX 12.
With VRScore PC, users can evaluate how their computer performs with different HMDs with the help of a professionally designed VR application that utilizes real-world game engine and real-world game programming techniques. Furthermore, users can accurately measure the latency of the HMD by utilizing a patent pending VRTrek measurement device by Basemark. After the analysis, users can connect to Power Board, an online results service, to compare their own results against those of other systems.
“Evaluating how good a VR system is, can only be done by keeping tabs on the latency because people notice even the smallest of delays between what’s displayed on the screen and what the brain expects. If there’s a disconnect, most people report they get nauseated or worse.” Said Jon Peddie, President and founder of Jon Peddie Research. “We are very excited to finally receive a robust tool for measuring latency in the form of Basemark’s VRScore and VRTrek. This enables the industry to set standards and achieve ever better functioning VR systems.”
In order to develop an objective benchmark, Basemark worked in close cooperation with key industry players, including AMD, Intel and NVIDIA. Furthermore, VRScore PC utilizes a real-world game engine, CRYENGINE by Crytek GmbH and features a Cinematic VR Experience with the Codename: Skyharbor. Sky Harbor gives us glimpse of what we can expect in the future of animated entertainment, pushing the boundary of realtime VR – powered with CRYENGINE V.
