The SteamVR Performance Test measures your system’s rendering power using a 2-minute sequence from Valves Aperture Robot Repair VR demo. After collecting the data it determines whether your system is capable of running VR content at 90fps and whether VR content can tune the visual fidelity up to the recommended level. For machines that are not VR Ready the tool can help determine whether capabilities are bound by Graphics Card, CPU, or both.
We ran the default test without any modifications.
Benchmark Results: Both the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 score 11 (very high) on the SteamVR Performance test and have 100% of the frames above 90 FPS. The AMD Radeon R9 Fury X with Radeon Crimson Edition 16.5.3 Hotfix drivers scored 9.6 (very high). If you look closer at the total number of frames tested you can see the total number of frames tested and that is representative of the power of each card. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 rendered nearly 36% more frames than the Radeon R9 Fury X, but even the Fury X had all frames tested being above 90 FPS.
