Oculus Quest 2 - framespikes & stuttering

Level 2


I've got a performance issue with my OQ2 and I don't know where the problem comes from.

Basically the game (Half Life Alyx) is stuttering like crazy, and this no matter what the graphics settings are. 

Here's what it looks like with the Lost Frame Capture tool:

As you can see, it's borderline unplayable.

My computer is completely VR Ready (, the cablelink is good (tested the connection on the Oculus App), and the problem appears whether I used oculus link or airlink.

All my drivers are up to date, and I'm on W11 latest build. 

When I ran the SteamVR performance test, it gave me the best results.

I tried:

- this:
- changing graphics settings both on the OQ2 and ingame

- switching to AirLink

- this:

and basically every other fix I found online...


Would love to understand what's going on... 

Thank you
