Oculus V56 and Rift-S controllers

Honored Guest

2 days ago I received Oculus V56 on my Windows 10 system. Yesterday I realized that I lost 15 FPS in my beloved flight sim since then. After doing some tests I found that the issue has to do the with the Rift-S controllers. If I remove the battery then the FPS jumps from 25 up to 40. I tested both controllers and see the same behavior on both.

Could it be that the older Rift-S controllers are not able to handle the "improved tracking" and "reduced latency" (higher polling rate?) in V56 properly ? The 15 FPS drop is a serious show stopper for me.

Is this a known issue and will V57 fix it ?
