VRMark Basic Edition Description
While you may think that determining whether your computer is ready for VR is not a big deal, especially since it can play the latest game releases perfectly, let us not forget that Virtual Reality devices can tax a PC considerably more than traditional video games.
VRMark Basic Edition is an application that provides you with a user-friendly and straightforward environment for establishing if your machine meets the requirements for running VR games.
Comes with a sleek, eye-candy interface
Following a quick and uneventful installation, you are welcomed by an appealing and clean home page that provides you with details about your operating system, processor and graphics card. You can learn more about the minimum prerequisites for the VR gadgets and your monitor by accessing the Benchmark tab.
The idea behind the application is to test your hardware and help you determine whether your current machine meets the recommended requirements for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. In addition to letting you know if your hardware can handle the VR devices, you can check out how well your system performs with the actual software solutions.
Offers results as charts for a reliable performance analysis
Functionality-wise, the utility is as simple as it looks and you can perform the benchmark test for your system by hitting the corresponding button. As you probably hinted, you cannot navigate through the app during the test. Nevertheless, this does not affect the functionality of your other running applications or computer overall.
In case you want to test out different configurations, then the app allows you to save the results for each of the test performed. You can effortlessly load them later on and determine how your PC score compares with that of other users.
A reliable tool for determining if your PC is VR ready
In the eventuality that you are considering investing in Oculus Rift or HTC Vive in the near future, but are not sure that your PC can run applications at an optimal level, then you can consider using VRMark Basic Edition to determine if you can enjoy the emerging VR experience.
