Hi guys. My first post here. I’ll try not to sound too negative, but have to admit I’m extremely frustrated with my VR performance and very close to just give up on FS2020.
First my specs:
x570 Aourus Elite
Ryzen 9 3900X
G.Skill Trident Z 32GB 3600mhz CL16
MSI 3070 Suprim X
ADATA ASX8200PNP 1TB M.2
Win 10 with latest updates
GeForce 471.41 driver
65mbit internet connection
(Anything else that is important?)
VR performance is terrible. I’ve tried almost every performance tips and tricks from various youtube channels to forum posts. Even with every settings in FS on low or off I can’t get smooth VR performance and it seems to vary every time I play. Sometimes it’s ALMOST playable, but most of the time it’s like my Quest 2 is possessed with some kind of demon. And I always test in the same area to try to get consistent results.
I was hoping for drastic improvements with sim update 5, but I still have problems that makes the experience more frustrating than enjoyable. It stutters ALL the time even if the fps counter seems to be stable at around 30 (without ASW). It’s a little bit better with OculusTrayTool with ASW 18, but it still have some stutters and fps drops. It’s better than before sim update 5, but still almost unplayable in VR.
I’m not an expert in computers and don’t know where to start troubleshooting or in what order I should troubleshoot. I just try a lot of different tips and tricks with almost never any noticable effect. I’ve probably tried 95% of all the different performance tips you can find online, but none have big effects on my system.
Other games runs fine both in VR and on my 4k monitor.
Where is my bottleneck? Is it my CPU? Or my M.2 drive?
I actually didn’t get much performance gain after upgrading from gtx 1080 ROG Strix Gaming to the 3070 I’m using now. But in other games it’s a totally different story (with lots of performance gains). I just don’t understand this.
I don’t know if anyone is able to help or even bother (understandable considering my negative take on this), but please let me know if some of you have had the same issues as me and was able to fix it (without being a noble price winner in computer science).
