Rift CV1 vs Rift S Performance wise (speed)

Hi lucky guys and girls who upgraded from CV1 to Rift S, I got a question for you : If you made benchmarks before and after, does the hightest pixels and lower framerate (80Hz) of the Rift S, and it's totally different tracking system (in vs out), compensate in terms of CPU/GPU cost of the lower pixels of CV1 , higher framerate (90Hz) and sensors tracking (3 in my case)?

In other words, may I expect less performance with Rift S, same, or better than CV1, using the exact same computer and default settings (ss=1.0, etc.)?

Thanks for your thoughts on this!

My impression when I went from CV1 to Rift S was my performance remained about the same. But also I used less SS with the S than the CV1 as well.

I'll agree with @dburne  - no noticable performance difference between Rift & Rift S - but the clarity difference does mean lower SS needed to be 'sharp'.
Then changing GPU last year meant I could 'go silly' with SS 🙂

Ya, I agree the overall performance with Rift S @ 1.5 SS is about the same as the Rift cv1 @ 2.0 SS.  Personal preferences for sure but I ended up returning my Rift S, mainly for the cv1's oled's and better audio.  If my cv1 ever dies (I still have a spare new cable thankfully) I'll probably just replace it with my Quest w/Link cable until something better for Oculus comes along.  For now, I'm mainly just enjoying my Quest standalone Mobile VR and/or wireless w/Virtual Desktop.

I play a lot of simulators, planes and cars, where precision is important in the distance. I saw some interesting comparison tests and videos and think it could be a real improvement for me. I hesitate to upgrade my machine vs the headset. I'm pretty happy with my current computer, even if I want more power (obviously)...

Mmmmm, still thinking! 😉

Thanks for your feedback!
