How to easily check whether your current computer is capable of handling virtual reality applications

It is useful to run a software test to determine whether your current system is powerful enough to use virtual reality. This can be done simply by downloading the SteamVR Performance Test from the Steam store.

This application automatically measures the power of the computer using a two-minute VR demo. Also, with this app you can easily determine whether your computer can run VR at 90 FPS (frames per second) or whether an upgrade of the GPU or CPU is required. Afterward, you will be shown in a graph how suitable your computer is.
