Ladies and gentlemen,
I'm trying to find a solution to an issue which has emerged out of the blue, and - despite having invested hours of research - I couldn't find any viable information / remedy for, so far.
I started with VR-app-development (hobby only!) like 3 years ago. At the time I was using a W-Series-Notebook manufactured by Lenovo.
While not serving top-notch-VR-performances, it was still able to run Unity / Blender + VR at around 65-70 FPS.
That was until Oculus released their first consumer-software...
The GPU couldn't take it any longer and therefore I switched to a custom built Mini-ITX system.
The Mini-ITX system did it's job quite well, but I always missed the portability / option of working / experimenting 'on-the-go'...
That's why I decided to try my luck with ASUS and it's GL502VM.
I was pretty happy with this notebook and it's capabilities, especially concerning it's rather lightweight build / design - until recently...
So, to cut a long story short:
Since like a week or so, while running any game / application, there would appear some sort of "tracking-judder", like, out of the blue.
It doesn't seem to be an issue of the tracking camera as - when covered - the judder is still there.
It's not an FPS-problem, either - those numbers look just fine.
There's one strange workaround that - in fact - does help - but the remedy would only last for a couple minutes:
If I take-off the headset and put it back on again, the tracking returns to flawless functionality - the judder would then be absent for a couple minutes.
Actions taken so far:
Disabled USB-power-saving-features (via device manager) for the following devices:
- Rift sensor
To prevent thermal throttling:
- Undervolted the CPU by -0.110V (Intel XTU)
- Disabled TurboBoost (Registry / Power plan changes)
- Applied custom GPU-profile (MSI Afterburner)
- Disabled asynchronous reprojection
- Disabled interleaved reprojection
Clean Windows 10-install (no kidding)
I'm really out of ideas at this moment and I'd be highly grateful for any suggestions.
P.S: I'm not quite sure whether there's a correlation between the judder-issues and the Windows 10-fall-update.
Thank you in advance + best regards
