I was looking forward to the new VR feature in MS, but to be honest i’m very dissapointed with the performance.
Without the VR mode is able to run almost everything in High or Ultra (with a resolution of 5780x1080) and get around 49 frames in London in the air.
MSI Nvidia 3080
When I switch to VR with almost everything on low (some on settings medium) i’m not able to get over 40 frames. Which is strange because the displayed resolution from my Oculus Rift is much lower, set to 1280x1075. I already installed openxr and played with the displayed resolution, but no results. Micro stutters and bad performance.
After an investigation I noticed in MSI afterburner that my CPU and my GPU are not used to the max anymore, which is not the case in the normal mode.
I know, it’s not DX12, so only one CPU core would be used, but most of the time my CPU core is between 50 or 80%, never 100%. Also my GPU is all the time between 50% and 85% of ultilization, so for what ever reason my hardware is never pushed to the limit. The GPU is used so badly in VR mode that even the fan’s on my GPU stops spinning, because there not generating enough heath
Did somebody else noticed this aswell, because this could explain the (extreme) low performance in VR mode.
