  • P.S. I’ve never yet seen any reference to the Rift appear in my PhysX control panel when it’s plugged in. Odd. How does it appear for you? A peripheral/screen hanging off the HDMI port? It depends. I'll provide screenshots for the 3 scenarios…
  • Sometimes this forum seems to resurrect drafts and post them unintentionally. This note was one of those, and since I can't delete posts I'm just writing this.
  • I'm also going to say that for me, running on an external monitor still produces a higher quality experience. I still get fps drops during intense action if any processes are using the Intel GPU. This laptop has a 120Hz 3ms display so maybe it's a s…
  • So I installed the 390.77 drivers and that may have helped. I performed a DDU and NVIDIA clean install. One thing I just found that does in fact make a significant difference having vertical sync set to OFF in the NVIDIA Control Panel. Someone menti…
  • JJcourage said: No! it gets bizarre - with or without the Rift plugged in to the HDMI - even on a reboot - the PhysX shows this (when I have the external monitor (Samsung TV running at 1920 x 1080) off the mini-DP port. And the OLED built-in 13…
  • I know this thread has gotten long-winded at this point, but now that I've resolved my general performance issue resolved I'm able to feel different hiccups in performance. When you all are mentioning "micro stuttering" is this something that happen…
  • Yes but I'm using Skype as a specific example. It's the Windows notifications alert that is playing, and my understanding by the naming of that setting is that it shouldn't be doing that? Just curious if this is normal, a bug, or I'm missing somethi…
  • JJcourage said: Decided to change my WiFi setting to being a Metered Connection to try and avoid anything else downloading in the background (yes, Windows Update, I'm looking at you, always trying to install a 10th of November 2017 Nvidia driv…
  • alan_worth said: I have a one sensor system that has been working fine until a few days ago. I have re-installed Oculus, updated all drivers, moved cables, etc., and this problem won't go away. Any ideas? Try replacing or swapping cable…
  • Make sure your USB drivers are up to date. My system has an ASMedia USB controller, and I went from having consistent tracking problems to none simply with a driver update. It can be as simple as opening Device Manager > USB, right clicking the c…
  • Okay so reporting back in on this. The tl;dr is - it was totally a hardware problem in my case. I know Sharkster-NVR is reporting a completely different experience, and it may just be a different situation. After discovering multiple comments on the…
  • For me the rabbit hole deepens. After dredging some MSI forums I've found that the Intel 7700HQ has issues with only 1 stick of RAM as it can't utilize the dual channel mode. Unfortunately MSI sold this laptop in such a state, so now I have to buy a…
  • LZoltowski said: That's annoying. Hey .. is there no way to disable the intel graphics all together in bios? Thats an interesting idea I’ll have to experiment with. That would also be better for JJCorage than hauling around a monitor.  My …
  • Sharkster-NVR said: Is that just a standard reply or is your notebook in fact not "Oculus ready", when you run the testing stuff? Your hardware sounds well capable of handling the job (and beyond)? Performance-wise the laptop is very Oc…
  • Not amazing response from support. I asked them if they could reproduce it and if it was something that could be researched. Their answer, paraphrasing: Your laptop model is not certified as oculus ready. You're probably doing the right thing bypas…
  • You may take a look at my comment over here. I'm wondering if more folks are experiencing this issue. The underlying problem (apparent Intel / NVIDIA conflicts) can appear as intermittent performance issues depending on what other apps are running. …
  • That made me think to mention that I am this mini displayport to DVI dongle, but I would think any converter should work as they are all passive converters.
  • I wanted to mention here that I found a workaround to this issue. tl;dr, Intel and NVIDIA drivers are not playing well together. Using an external monitor and disabling the laptop screen forces all processes to use the NVIDIA GPU, and ALL the perfor…
  • JJcourage, woohoo! Glad to hear it worked! If this is a problem for many people, hopefully they find this and start reporting it as well. Hopefully we'll see this fixed in the near future.
  • JJcourage said: b) Sorry... I am a little confused at this stage, as I don't want to lose the use of the Laptop's panel and portability, i.e.  start to carry around an external display monitor - this would totally remove the point for me and using …
  • I just learned something else. While swapping out external monitors the Rift popped back in as a second monitor in Windows. I didn't do any testing with that because then the external monitor couldn't be detected. It's probably a hardware limitati…
  • Okay here's the report: Updated to 390.65 drivers and so far as I can tell they're still smoking fast. The Rift as a second monitor did not re-appear and is still AWOL. As long as I run everything on the GTX 1070 outputs the experience is as excelle…
  • LZoltowski said: In windows 10 search bar, type in settings, when the window pops up, select gaming, click on game bar .. and disable the first option. In Game DVR, make sure its set to off too. GOT IT. Okay, I did find that and disable those …
  • LZoltowski, maybe this is something? I don't have the Display, Mobile, or Video options available in my GeForce control panel. It seems at some point the rift being detected as a second "monitor" was removed (maybe with the manual uninstall and rein…
  • JJcourage, one thing I can confirm 100% at this point is that much of the stuttering I am seeing in games is associated with other application windows being open on the computer screen. The Oculus Client software is the worst offender I've found, bu…
  • If there was any improvement it was within the range of "could be in my head; maybe 5-10ish fps improvement but not improved to steady 90" and it coincided with reinstalling the Oculus software not the drivers! Things are a bit more playable now, wh…
  • So the only thing I've learned is it isn't specifically the drivers. I manually uninstalled and cleaned Oculus which didn't seem to help. I also reverted all the way back to 384.94 drivers but that did nothing. I'm going to keep working at it with s…
  • Gotcha. Yeah that's what I'm doing, to no effect though. Tonight I'm going to try a manual uninstall of Oculus, per support's recommendation, and then the drivers from mid-2017.
  • Sharkster-NVR said: Having said this... we now use the Debug tool (every time we start the Oculus service). I can't say I've tried this. Are you saying you use the debug tool to start the service, or you need to use the debug tool again…
  • LZoltowski said: How are you disabling ASW? Using Tray Tool or Oculus Debug Tool? Or Using CTRL + Numpad 1 I've tried the Oculus Debug Tool and Tray Tool. I'm assuming the tray tool setting is working because when I turn ASW on, fps dr…
