The Basic Edition of VRMark will test if your PC can match the current minimum requirements to run the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headsets.

Futuremark is on a roll this year with its new DirectX 12-based Time Spy benchmark, stress testing benchmark, and the Android benchmark update. Now, the next major addition will test the VR capabilities of PCs and notebooks with the new free-of-charge VRMark benchmark.

While users can certainly use the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, VRMark does not require a headset to run. The Basic Edition comes with the Orange Room benchmark to test a PC against the minimum and recommended requirements to run HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.

The Advanced and Professional Editions of VRMark includes Blue Room to test very high-end systems. Additional features and customizable settings are available here as well including more detailed results and graphs and the ability to run benchmarks through command lines and scripts.

VRMark Basic Edition is available now through Steam and mirror links with the Advanced Edition retailing for just under $15 USD. Like other benchmarks from Futuremark, the Professional Edition targets commercial and business users. Futuremark benchmarks are used on almost every notebook, tablet, and smartphone we review on Notebookcheck.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
