Quest Link App is Laggy / Causes Lag

Honored Guest

Im using air link with my pc, using the oculus link app.

The Oculus app link is causing lag / fragmenting / meshing.

it's not just low FPS, it's this extremely weird meshing / fragmenting problem,
and limited FOV (turning around doesn't "render" and you have the content in a rectangle and everything around it is black).

at first i thought it happened randomly within games,
but then i noticed it happens consistently  i get an achievement in game.
and most of the times when i go the oculus link "hub world" (the grey world / menu), the same problem occurs:
fps drops, weird meshing.

It's don't think it's a specs problem, because quitting and restarting works like a charm,
and sometimes even just going to pass-through mode and returning fixes it.

also monitoring my pc, it doesn't throttle at all.

it really ruins my experience 😞 
the quest 3 is my first vr headset

Oculus Device:
Quest 3 512GB
