VRMark Cyan Room coming November 22
November 15, 2017
We're excited to announce that VRMark Cyan Room—our new DirectX 12 benchmark test for VR—will be released on November 22.
VRMark is a benchmarking application for measuring VR performance. You can run VRMark tests on your monitor—no headset required—or on a connected HMD. Each benchmark runs on a fixed path, which makes it easy to repeat the test on other systems to compare performance.
VRMark Cyan Room - DirectX 12 benchmark for VR
Cyan Room is a new DirectX 12 benchmark test for VR. It uses a pure DirectX 12 engine built in-house and optimized for VR. It features a large, complex environment and many eye-catching effects. Cyan Room shows how using an API with less overhead can help developers deliver impressive VR experiences even on modest PC systems.
VRMark's Experience mode will let you explore the Cyan Room in your own time. You can change the rendering resolution and other settings to make the scene more or less demanding. VR headsets use clever techniques to compensate for missed frames. Using Experience mode with a VR headset is a great way to see how system performance affects your VR experience.
First released in November 2016, VRMark has helped thousands of people test their PC's performance for VR.
The VRMark Orange Room benchmark tests your system against the recommended hardware requirements for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
The Blue Room is a much more demanding test. With its massive 5K rendering resolution and spectacular volumetric lighting effects, it sets a high bar for future hardware generations.
After running a benchmark, you see if your PC was able to meet the target frame rate, a comparison with other systems, and detailed hardware monitoring charts.
Available November 22
Cyan Room will be released on November 22 as a free update for VRMark Advanced Edition and VRMark Professional Edition. Find out more.
