Steam VR Test

Hello!

New here, and considering getting an HTC Vive Pro.

I just ran the Steam VR Test and it says my GPU can't handle it. But um... it's a GTX 1080Ti.

 

Something is wrong, right? I've seen systems with a GTX 980 Ti get a green result...Capture.PNG

@GM_Rod,

That's weird indeed. No need to worry though, that's still the best GPU on the market so, just ignore that report. I'm on 1080ti myself.

Wanna know something even weirder?

 

It was doing around 60fps if I had the test window focused.

As soon as I Alt tabbed somewhere else, it jumped to 230fps!

So if I don't click the window, the test passes. WEEEIRD.

@GM_Rod,

Well ... why would you even bother to run tests on a such a nice machine is beyond me Smiley Very Happy .... skip the tests and get in game! Smiley Wink

Lol, it's because I haven't bought the HTC yet. I wanted to know if it was gonna run well before I take the plunge!

But yeah I know it's safe now. Thanks!
