a CPU review for VR needed? :) - mihaii - 12-13-2020

hey guys, great site for VR benchmarks (and more). Actually, the best for VR testing. Congrats @apoppin.
I was curious if you could test CPUs for VR
I'm currently running a Skylake 6700 (non K) and i was thinking if the upgrade should be a new CPU+3060TI vs sticking with the same CPU+3080

Thanks,
M

Thank-you and welcome!

I am planning to run some CPU tests. I have a 6700K/MB that I need to borrow back from Mario. I'll use it to compare VR performance with an OC 8700K and vs. the 10900K OC.
---It will be sometime next month. I still have a ton of reviews to finish first ...

Cyberpunk 2077 tomorrow ... EVGA RTX 3070 FTW3 vs RX 6800 next week ... RX 6900 arrives next week and I have to test it in VR besides in pancake games first.

However, I'd suggest that you still may be able to OC your 6700 even though it is not a 'K' sufficiently so that a 3080 will make the biggest difference in VR over a CPU upgrade
(depending on your HMD, VR games, etc. ... and wireless requires a fast CPU)

looking forward for your next reviews, not only VR
