Original article:


This is tested on a default Original HTC Vive with combined resolution of 2160*1200 at 2.5 Million pixel to drive at 90Hz

For comparison, Valve Index is 2880*1600 at 4.6 Million pixel to drive at 120Hz or 144Hz

Regular 2560*1440 gaming monitor is 2560*1440 at 3.68 Million pixel to drive at 100~144Hz.

Super sampling at 150% or 200% scale does increase the performance demand drastically though.


For VR, you need a consistent 90Hz (90FPS) minimum to enjoy the experience without motion sickening. Otherwise motion smoothing will kick in. Although not deal breaker, it does reduce immersion by quite a bit.



First we have RTX 2060



Second, GTX 1060-6GB



Next we have 980Ti


GTX 970



R9 380

My trusty 980 Ti does okay! Although I don't have a VR headset I'd like to play the game, certainly looks like the gold standard of VR games.

On paper RTX 2060 should be at the very least 75% faster than GTX 1060 which is not the case here. Something is wrong.

This looks somewhat better and more realistic:
