I don't understand why these games are glitching constantly even when running well below 11ms
GTX1080ti 11GB @ 1746mhz
i5 9400F 2.9GHZ (4.0ghz boost)
16GB DDR4 2666Mhz
Official Oculus Link Cable test results @2.6GB/s
Quest 2 device settings to Automatic resolution @ 90Hz
I had the same problems with an RTX2060 so I got a 1080ti (RTX cards are expensive in South Africa so it made more sense for my budget). Also upgraded the motherboard to Z390 to accommodate the new GPU - so I would be open to also upgrading CPU and Ram a little bit if it will solve my problem.
I realise these games are known to be demanding, but I've done tests where I reduce resolutions in Steam VR to as low as possible at roughly 20% and put all graphics on minimum. It's obviously not playable like that but it means the GPU is under zero strain. I have a fresh installation of Windows 10 and have disabled as many background tasks as possible including RGB management software, anti-virus etc. I have followed VR optimisation guides for the games.
No Mans Sky (Microsoft Store version - but opens in Steam VR strangely enough):
Steady 5ms but the bars are all yellow and intermittent glitching occurs every 5-10 seconds.
Half Life Alyx:
Steady 5ms when indoors the bars are all green but with intermittent glitching yellow/red spikes every 5-10 seconds no matter where I am or how high the FPS. When outdoors it maintains a steady 5ms but bars turn yellow/red and it becomes almost unplayable.
