VRMark Virtual Reality Benchmark Available on Android

Today we are releasing a new VRMark benchmark app for Android devices. VRMark works with or without a headset to help you test and compare the VR performance of the latest smartphones.
The VRMark Professional Edition app, designed for industry and press use, combines three new VR benchmark tests with three individual test modes to provide a comprehensive set of tools for testing the VR capabilities of the latest devices.
For VR enthusiasts, a free version of the app offers a smaller set of tests for benchmarking VR performance at home.
VRMark for press use
We provide complimentary benchmark licenses to members of the press. If you would like to use the Professional Edition app in your reviews, simply reply to this mail and we’ll set you up. Our VRMark press kit includes screenshots, logos, and other assets that might come in handy.

Three levels of VR performance
VRMark is designed around performance levels, which we call Rooms. A Room is a piece of VR content carefully created to require a specific level of VR performance. The Android version of VRMark comes with three Rooms.
The Indigo Room represents the majority of mobile VR content available today. It is a lightweight test that is designed to run comfortably for long periods on first-generation Daydream devices.
The Purple Room is designed to run well for at least one loop on first-generation Daydream devices, but some phones will get hot when looping this test, and their performance may fall as the test runs.
The Amber Room is a forward-looking test that represents next-generation mobile VR content. It is very demanding making it an ideal benchmark for comparing devices that already perform well in the other Rooms.

Three ways to test VR performance
Mobile VR offers an affordable entry point, but differences in device performance and an evolving ecosystem present many challenges. VRMark provides three complementary ways to test and compare VR performance.
Peak Mode measures a device’s peak VR performance by running a single loop of the test. This mode measures how well a device can handle VR for a short period of time.
Use Sustained Mode to see if a device can maintain the required level of performance for a longer period. You can run the test for ten loops, one hour, a full day or even longer. Sustained Mode helps you uncover thermal and stability issues that affect a device’s VR performance.
VR applications are demanding and can quickly drain a device’s battery. After running a sustained test, VRMark also estimates the device’s battery life for VR.
Add a headset and use Experience Mode to judge the quality of the VR experience with your own eyes. See for yourself how well your device compensates for missed frames. Experience mode works with Daydream View and Google Cardboard compatible headsets.
