Looking purely at graphics processing, AMD Radeon RX480 remains the most cost-effective solution for VR experiences. It manages to generate about 62fps, whereas the alternative Nvidia’s GTX 1080 generates about 59fps. Looks like a long way to go for processors to hit the ideal 90fps mark!
The oxymoron goes on
Rumours or not, VR is a major focus area for manufacturers going ahead. Its popularity is evident from an experience I had last week. While travelling, I heard a knock on my car window. Thinking it would be another hawker selling stuff I did not need, I brushed him off. When the vehicle moved, the rear-view mirror showed a person holding three to four VR headset boxes. Those might have been knockoffs, but the idea that VR has reached the streets is heartening.
