VR technology has immense potential fro gaming and other applications, but requires quite a bit of investment in fast and powerful GPUs and CPUs. One of the best ways to meet this demand is with DirectX 12, a programming interface that gives developers more direct access to the GPU and CPU hardware. Knowing this, the folks at Futuremark have recently updated their popular software VRMark benchmark with a new test environment called Cyan Room. It runs exclusively in DirectX 12, and showcases the potential of next-gen tools that make VR more compelling. Cyan Room also highlight’s AMD’s unmatched performance on this front. From the data, you can see that Radeon GPUs show a clear lead against the competition, meeting the demands for today’s VR headsets by delivering 90 frames per second in the test. The VRMark Cyan Room test shows a future wherein VR developers can use the potential of…
