Futuremark recently released an update on VRMark® benchmark by adding a new test environment known as the Cyan Room. The Cyan Room benchmark runs exclusively in DirectX® 12 to demonstrate the potential for next-generation tools to make VR more compelling.
Most VR applications on the PC have relied on the older DirectX® 11 infrastructure but with the fast development of new graphical APIs and Graphics Processing Units, the entire ecosystem is also rapidly changing.
According to a blog post from AMD, the Cyan Room highlighted AMD’s continued performance leadership on this front. Here are some initial results from VRMark® Cyan Room.
The test was conducted by AMD Performance Labs as of November 18, 2017 using a test system comprising of Ryzen 7 1800X CPU, 16GB DDR4-2933 system memory, and Windows 10 x64. The Radeon graphics cards were tested with Radeon Software 17.11.2 The GeForce cards were tested with the 388.81 driver.
PC manufacturers may vary configurations, yielding different results but this test was definitely an interesting take on the DirectX® 12 performance of the Radeon RX Vega GPUs.
