We have started flirting with VR at our office and when I tested if our computers were VR-ready with «SteamVR Performance Test», I was pretty surprised.
We are using Lenovo ThinkStations P900 Workstations. They are considered as high end computers with «extreme performance». These P900 have either Nivida Quadro K4200 or Nivida GeForce GTX 970 installed, but the rest of the specs are the same. You can see the results from the performance test below:
Yes, I knew that the GTX970 was superior before I tested, but I must admit that I was surprised that the K4200 did not score better.
Btw, if you are going to buy a new workstation in the near future, you should wait for the GTX 1080.
