Roughly every 1-2 seconds, there's a small judder/stutter in PCVR games when moving. It's almost like a previous frame is rendered again. It is very noticable in alyx and boneworks using the joystick to move left/right and looking at a static object. I assume people playing with other movement types wont notice it easily.
It does not show:
Only shows in headset.
I have tried two PC's:
Most testing has been done on PC#2, but the experience is exactly the same.
What I have tried:
I have read countless of topics complaining about steamvr/alyx/boneworks stuttering.
My first thought is:
It might be the nvidia driver thing:
However it seems like it should be solved unless you run GPU monitoring software, which a fresh windows install obvously doesn't have. Odds are that this might not be the case, but everyone with new nvidia drivers should experience it, and some people claim to have a completely smooth pcvr alyx/boneworks experience? Are they just not using smooth locomotion and not noticing it?
My second thought is:
My headset is either broken or the stutter is a software error, either with the oculus compositor/encoder or the decoder on the headset. Again here, other people should experience it.
It's just a general thing with quest 2 and people just don't notice it? I experience no issues at all with native headset games.
I have only had the quest 2 for a couple of months and while I've enjoyed native games (mostly beatsaber), it has been a huge dissappointment having so many issues with PCVR.
Anyone have any advice at all? I'm about at that point where I consider returning it as defective.
If you want to test it, just boot up alyx or boneworks, look at a static object fairly close to you and move left to right to left continuously (smooth locomotion). You should see a small stutter every once in a while.
Had the same issue with my PC. Running a EVGA RTX 3070 ultra. Both Half life Alyx, and Boneworks micro stutter.. using Quest 2 with link cable,Air link and VD.. thought maybe it was my RIG, so I purchased a Alienware M17 R4 with RTX 3070... guess what all games still stutter! Tried 2 different Quest 2 headsets, and about 3 link cables.. all stutter... I returned the Laptop back to Bestbuy... I have now giving up on trying to play PCVR. Tried about ever settings known to man..... nothing worked, and I dug deep on the web... what a waist of time!
