UE 4.22 performance on Go / Quest ?

What's the consensus about UE 4.22 performance on Go / Quest ?

When I tried one of the later previews, performance was horrible with ES2 and ES3.1. Since there is no 4.22 release with current Oculus integrations on Oculus github, I assume the reason for it is not that Oculus is busy prepping for Rift S / Quest launch, but because 4.22 performs worse than 4.21.x.

Please enlighten me :)

    As I posted already 4.22 has terrible performance on the Go. I'm guessing the same for Quest? I'm really hoping Oculus can fix this (or push Epic to fix it via a hotfix if their side) as there are lots of nice new 4.22 features I was hoping to use :)

    I've only briefly tested on the Rift and it seemed ok there but my project is more mobile performance so probably wouldn't notice a drop in performance anyway.

    https://developer.oculus.com/blog/understanding-gameplay-latency-for-oculus-quest-oculus-go-and-gear-vr/ check the "UE4 and RHIThread" part as it relates to 4.22

    You can skip new rendering pipeline. Quoting from the discord:

    r.rhicmdbypass
    requires: r.rhithread.enable

    I haven't tried it though.

    Hey thanks for posting!
    I tried both:
    r.rhicmdbypass 0
    &
    r.rhicmdbypass 1

    but no fix. Setting it to 1 did seems a few ms faster however still a few ms slower than 4.21 :(

    If I set r.rhithread.enable to any value other than 0 the app crashes on start
    (I'm setting them at runtime on begin play with the execute console command node.

    @aussieburgerVR Did you by chance report your findings to Oculus (using their bug tracker) ?

    No I didn't yet - I'm just double checking it on the new oculus 4.22 branch first

    ah I'm getting this crash on the oculus branch:
    will try to report the performance issue tomorrow.
