The SteamVR Performance Test has been released and is not running well on older AMD GCN 1.0 GPUs and older nVidia Kepler GPUs.

I ran the test and scored the following on my i7 5820K @ 4.3 GHz rig with an MSI GTX 980Ti Gaming 6G @ stock settings. If anyone else wants to run it, have at it! :comp:

Seems to run fine on my system (115+ FPS) but appears to be only single threaded for the cpu. However, I never get a result screen after it finishes playing through the test. It just closes out.

This is on Little Power, mostly stayed between 135-160 FPS, but saw up to ~185 ish I think.

Does not seem to be a CPU intense test. Even with my AMD cores running at 4.4Ghz right now no frames were CPU bound.

My score is only .6 higher. I was expecting something around 7 or 8. I checked and this test wasn't making use of SLI at all. :-/

I thought the VR was supposed to use one graphics card per eye but I didn't see this happening in the test. I'm curious to see what it can do when it is using both graphics cards and not just the one.

This looks like a very simple graphics test.

I believe that valVe is using it as both a Hype machine and a way to temper expectations.

It says right in the test that it does not take CPU loads into consideration. This test should be adding a synthetic load to replicate that.

You may as well be comparing 3D Vantage scores. I see it being about as useful as the 'Windows Experience' numbers.

You're probably very correct. However I fear my GTX 970 cards are not long for this machine if I have to dial down settings. I don't dial down settings :D

Of course then again it does also say that I had 0 frames below 90 FPS. What a mind game.
