Short text:

NVIDIA plans to ship a hotfix later this week for “most” of the widely reported SteamVR stuttering issues.

Since driver version 456.71, released in October, some owners of recent NVIDIA graphics cards started experiencing stuttering in SteamVR caused by mysterious frame time spikes.

Dropping frames in VR is a serious issue because it can make people feel sick. Two weeks ago, NVIDIA QA engineer Manuel Guzman claimed “some progress” in identifying the root cause.

Yesterday, Guzman announced a hotfix is inbound, but warned the issue may remain when using GPU monitoring tools:

Hopefully it will also fix the issue of link cables getting randomly disconnected and reconnected. If oculus won't address the issue maybe Nivdia can.

I hope this fixes Oculus Home/Guardian setup, it's not just SteamVR that's affected.

From what i gather any version before and including 456.38 is good but no higher. Its also what im using now. i feel really bad about having an outdated driver so hope its fixed soon. 1080ti "should not have to put up with this crap
