RX Vega 64/56 and RX 580 make a killing

It appears that AMD Radeon graphics cards have finally got a chance to show its true VR potential thanks to Futuremark's latest VRMark Cyan Room DirectX 12 benchmark.

We already knew that AMD graphics cards could do well in Futuremark's latest VRMark Cyan Room test due to the fact that it based on DirectX 12 API and now, AMD's Scott Wasson, ex. founder and editor-in-chief, published some benchmarks results for the Radeon RX Vega 64, RX Vega 56 and the Radeon RX 580 graphics card.

Both the RX Vega 64 and the RX Vega 56 are on top of those table results, scoring well over 7000 points and providing 170 and 162 FPS, respectively. The Radeon RX 580 scores 4721 and manage to get 103 FPS, which is still above 90 FPS, a key requirement for VR headsets.

Unfortunately, AMD conveniently did not include the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Ti in the score list, which could be faster than the RX Vega 64. According to AMD's blog post, the benchmark was running on Ryzen 7 1800X-based system.

In case you missed it, Futuremark's VRMark Cyan Room benchmark is available from November 22nd as a free update for VRMark Advanced Edition and VRMark Professional Edition.
