New VRMark and Servermark benchmark tests for 2017

February 27, 2017

We're attending two of the year's biggest industry events this week. Mobile World Congress, a huge show focused on all things mobile, takes place in the beautiful city of Barcelona. The Game Developers Conference, in San Francisco, is the place to go to learn about the latest developments in game design and technology. We have teams at both shows giving demos of some of the new benchmarks we're currently working on. Read on to find out more.

VRMark Cyan Room - a new DirectX 12 benchmark for VR

VRMark Cyan Room VR benchmark test

VRMark Cyan Room, currently in development, is a new DirectX 12 benchmark test for Windows PCs. Sitting between the Orange and Blue Rooms, the Cyan Room benchmark shows how using an API with less overhead helps developers create impressive VR experiences on modest PC systems. As with the existing VRMark tests, you can run the Cyan Room benchmark on your monitor or on a VR headset. Run the benchmark to measure performance or try Experience mode with an HMD to judge a system's rendering quality with your own eyes.

New VRMark benchmarks for mobile VR

VRMark benchmarks for mobile VR devices

Mobile VR offers an affordable entry point for virtual reality, but differences in device performance and a rapidly evolving ecosystem present significant challenges. That’s why VRMark will soon add new benchmark tests designed specifically for mobile VR platforms.

The new tests cover a range of existing and emerging device standards such as Google Daydream, Google Cardboard, and Samsung Gear VR. Two test modes let you measure a device's peak performance as well as its ability to run VR for longer periods without overheating, degrading performance or consuming an excessive amount of battery.

Comprehensive VR latency testing

VRMark OptoFidelity VR latency testing

In virtual reality, low latency is essential for user comfort. Poor performance affects the quality of the VR experience. It can even cause motion sickness and nausea.

Futuremark has partnered with OptoFidelity, a globally recognized pioneer in robot-assisted testing and quality assurance, to provide manufacturers with an advanced VR latency testing platform. The platform offers end-to-end testing of VR equipment while measuring key VR performance indicators such as motion-to-photon latency, pixel persistence, and frame jitter. The solution works with PCs and mobile devices and can be applied to both VR and AR systems.

Servermark

Servermark benchmark test for IT professionals

Servermark is a new benchmark suite for testing server performance for a range of common uses. At GDC and MWC, we're showing previews of two Servermark benchmark tests.

Servermark VDI is a benchmark for evaluating servers used for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. It enables you to determine the number of virtual desktops a server can support at a set performance level or the level of performance that can be achieved with a set number of clients.

Servermark Media Transcode is a benchmark for testing the performance of media servers. It helps you determine the maximum number of concurrent video streams a server can deliver with a specified codec, resolution and quality.
