I noticed that when I have my monitor plugged into the graphics card along with the rift, I see jittering (frames seem to get dropped every 5-10 seconds, very noticeable when looking around in dreamdeck) and it breaks immersion. However, when I remove my monitor and only have my rift connected to the PC, the frame drops go away and I have a smooth, jitter-free experience in dreamdeck.
I am connecting both the Rift and the monitor to the GPU. I am connecting to my monitor using a DisplayPort to HDMI adaptor.
Hardware: Gefore 1070, Core i7, 32GB RAM and plenty of SSD/HDD space, Asus Z170 Motherboard, Windows 10. Should be on the latest drivers for all of the above.
Has anyone seen this before? Any tips? It would be great to have folks not inside the rift be able to see what's happening.
