Framerate is horrible + screen tearing. Seems like something is wrong.

I just got my CV1 and installed everything. Drivers are up to date computer seems fine.
But inside the oculus the frame rate is completely horrible, the tracking is laggy and the lines seem to not match up when I move my head.

It feels as if the thing is running at about 10% power or something.

My computer spec should be fine. not sure what is going on, has anyone else experienced this?

My computer checks out as VR ready on my Nvidea geforce experience pannel as well.

Here are my specs - 

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4690K CPU @ 3.50GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
8 GB of RAM
Windows 10 64-bit

    Screen tearing? That's odd .... Oculus displays are V-Sync locked ...

    Friendly pro tip: post your specs anyway.

    Did you run the Oculus Compatibility Tool?

    Sorry I should have posted specs.
    I have just updated my initial post with them.
    Thanks for the quick responses!

    Also it is not screen tearing actually, that is probably the wrong word. It is more that it looks like the cameras go out of sync as I move my head, so I see dupilcate images.

    Games just seem to run really slow, as does the home area.

    The compatability tool comes up fine when I run it.

    Hmmm, yeah you should be fine on those specs... Tell you what, try the Firestrike Benchmark test and see what happens: http://store.steampowered.com/app/223850/ (just run the demo, you don't need to buy it).

    If that judders and doesn't behave properly, then I'd almost say it's something to do with your computer's ability to process data (which could be either the GPU or the CPU). However, if it handles that with no issue, then I'd say it's 100% the Rift that's faulty.

    You need a score higher than 9271 to be considered "Rift capable"

    What you are seeing sounds like judder, but should not be happening on your machine. Something else must be wrong, like a software conflict or something else running on your computer.

    So I ran that benchmark and got a score of 10997 which seems ok. Didn't really have any trouble running it.

    The odd thing is that when the oculus is in a game like Lucky's tale, the frame rate is bad on my computer screen as well as in the oculus, which leads me to believe there is something going wrong on the computers end of things.

    This is so frustrating.

    I don't think 11k is ok. If I am not wrong I get 11k with my OC GTX970. I will check it tomorrow.

    You can try to clean install your GPU drivers maybe this will fix the problem.

    @Jasperpt  do you have anything running that would intercept the GPU? ....  run msconfig and disable anything you do not need from starting up .. then give it another try

    @Stelzer  yeah I get around 11k +/- 100 on my OC GTX 970

    I think I'm having a similar problem as the OP with a kind of double vision that happens when I move my head around. It actually only happens after using Rift for a while, and it goes away temporarily when I press the Xbox button to go to the "grey menu" and then exit it. It's like going into the gray menu resets something and then everything is fine for a little while. It's a bit annoying that I have to do that every few minutes in order to maintain a fluid visual experience.

    I have the same CPU as OP, i5 4690k. It's on an h97 msi motherboard with 8gb of RAM. EVGA GTX 970. Relatively fresh installation of Windows 10.

    hmmm. that is odd.

    I have nothing that I can see running taking up GPU other than oculus VR which is sitting at 1,336 mb.

    @Jasperpt do you have any screen sharing apps on? Any screen recorders? Any desktop extenders, virtual display emulators? etc?

    If they are not already, plug your HDMI directly into your graphics card, and your USB3's directly into your motherboard.  No adapters, extenders, hubs, nothing.

    I do but not running.

    Ok. Now I feel like a total idiot. It was the HDMI. I had it plugged into the mutherboard and not the graphics card.

    That is such a relief. I can not thank you guys enough for the help you have given here, seriously amazed at the rapid responses everyone gave. Much cudos to you all.

    I feel genuinely bad that I wasted your time with something so stupid! gah!

    But It has given me a lot of hope in the comunity, so thank you.
