NVIDIA Titan RTX: VRMark And 3DMark Tests

Futuremark’s VRMark is designed to test a PC’s readiness for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets. The benchmark does not, however, require that one of the headsets is attached to the PC to run and it uses an in-house graphics engine and content to ensure comparable results between different platforms. We ran the "Blue Room" VRMark test at defaults settings here, which is currently the most taxing test offered by the tool.

The NVIDIA Titan RTX jumps out into the lead here, easily besting the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. It is also much faster than all of the high-end Quadros we had on-hand for testing, though we have yet to score of of the flagship Turing-based Quadros.

Although the Titan RTX isn't being actively marketed to gamers, because it is based on Turing and is technically the most-powerful graphics card for gamers in NVIDIA's current line-up, we decided to see how it could handle a few gaming-oriented tests as well, including a couple that leverage DXR and NVIDIA's RTX and DLSS technologies.



We saw more of the same in 3DMark Fire Strike. Once again the Titan RTX jumps to the head of the pack, besting all of the consumer GPUs. We threw the Quadro P6000 into the mix for good measure as well, but it lands just behind the previous-gen GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (which is built around the same Pascal-based GPU).



In the latest 3DMark Port Royal benchmark that leverages DXR for real-time ray tracing -- and ONLY runs on Turing-based GPUs at the moment -- the Titan RTX leads the pack once again, outrunning the GeForce GTX 2080 Ti by a little less than 10%.
