oculus link glitching when playing a vr game

for some reason every time I boot up a game via oculus link, using steam VR or anything else, it gets so incredibly glitchy I don't even know how to describe it. first its just lags a lot, but it things turn into an interstellar bookshelf type thing where everything that is just out of the loaded peripherals repeats infinitely.

I've tried a lot of stuff, from factory resetting the quest 2, reinstalling the desktop app, multiple powers off and on, but after a couple hours I just couldn't figure it out.

I'm pretty sure its not my specs too, I've got a Radeon RX 5500 XT and a AMD RYZEN 3 3100 and I've never had lag or glitches in any video game on this computer.

What is the game you want to play , I had the same problem with a NON licensed game that had a lot of physics and I found out that the problem was from my CPU not being able to process the things fast enough . And you GPU is on the LOWEST end of the VR capable gpus .

I'm running on gpu amd rx 5700 and cpu amd 5600x . So I guess it's your PCs problem (maybe not enought vram on the gpu ) can you DM me the name of the game you are playing .
