Quest Link Stutter

Honored Guest

So I'm getting horrible choppiness and stuttering on my Quest 1 when I use link/air link/virtual desktop. I am POSITIVE it isn't a hardware or performance issue via my PC, since fpsVR shows I'm getting a solid 72hz almost 100% of the time. I used to be able to run with decent performance before, but this started happening within the last few months. I've tried setting oculus server and runtime things to realtime/high priority in task manager already. I'm using the official link cable as well, and it comes out okay when I test it in the app. The Quest Home runs smoothly, I just start having stuttering issues whenever I start using Oculus, even in Oculus home. 

My specs are -

i5 9400f turbo boosted to 4.1ghz

RTX 3060ti

G.Skill 20gb DDR4 3200mhz

WD Black sn750 nvme ssd


Thanks in advance.

I've been mostly playing After The Fall PCVR (Link cable). I believe I am seeing what the "stutters" are.


I am not special. You can probably reproduce these in your lab without needing a bunch of log files from users.
