I decided to give windows 11 a go and everything on my PC is working flawlessly apart from one big one... Oculus Link performance. Before I go back to windows 10 I wonder if anyone has figured this out already.
Oculus software works fine and the Quest 2 link connects, but it can never hit the required fps settings no matter what they are. So if I have link set to 90hz, then in game it will be about 82-85fps and stuttering, it never hits 90fps even though the game says its locked at 90 on my monitors no problem, and I have loads of headroom in performance monitor (I have a 5900x and RTX 3090!) - If i use the 120hz option then i will get about 105fps but never 120. Even if i choose 72hz ill get about 65fps. super annoying.
I went onto the beta channel on the software and got the latest updates but still no luck.
I dont mind going back to windows 10 and i get windows 11 might not be ready yet, but literally EVERYTHING else on my pc works fine, only the vr performance, so its a shame. Any ideas of things to try before I reinstall windows 10?
Hey zektulu, thanks for reaching out! We understand that dropped frames can be a real downer on the gaming experience, especially with the exciting release of Windows 11. At this time, however, the Oculus PC app does not officially support Windows 11. Rest assured, our legendary engineering team has prioritized updating the Oculus software to fully support Windows 11 in the near future. For the optimal PCVR experience, we recommend rolling back to your most recent version of Windows 10 and keep checking our Community forums for updates on Windows 11 support!
I think CactusCowboy was being playfully sarcastic 🙂
Every dev in the industry knew that Windows 11 was coming and that the developer builds were available back in July to companies to conduct testing and prepare updates. I assume Oculus didn't start their dev work until really late OR this performance problem is extremely complex to resolve.
For those of us that chose to upgrade to Windows 11, I guess we have the option of a format/reinstall (not that I have any intentions on doing that). I do feel bad for those who recently purchased a new rig with Windows 11 and a Quest 2 for PCVR. They don't have the option of rolling back to Win10 and are at the mercy of the wait game
I have about 15 devices old and new connected to my desktop and hundreds of pieces of software, games, drivers. Oculus is the only thing that doesn't work. Even Virtual Desktop got their issues sorted out.
