Here you can see that my system maximum for DCS is about PD of 1.5, with SteamVR Super Sampling set to 96% (I run the SteamVR setting ‘Video’ at 160%, so put the DCS.exe as ‘Application’ 60% as it doesn’t impact how DCS looks, just the in-sim PD value does). This is on a 1070 with an i5 @ 4.5 GHz.
I’m hitting 45 fps pretty steady and projection making that look like a smooth 90 to me, without my GPU % hitting 99% all the time, my GPU memory also not maxed out (would be bad), and my CPU comfy at 56%. RAM is ok, but this is just a free-flight mission.
Can you post your in-game DCS Graphics Settings as well, please?
PS - Thanks for answering my question on the Steam board, appreciate it man! I picked up a Odyssey+ to hold me over until my Pimax 5K+ gets here likely sometime early next year, it arrived on Monday and I’ve had my hands full with trying to refine everything. Using this in combination with the GPU/CPU Bottleneck indicators from SteamVR I should be able to dial everything in.
Oculus Rift CV2 (been out a couple years now)
Samsung Odyssey or Odyssey +
Pimax 5K (the new-ish kid on the block)
I’ve owned the Rift and O+ and liked both of them. I’d love a Pimax 5K just to play with, but I’m not willing to shell out on a company that I’m still not 100% on, and they are expensive by the time you add some accessories. I don’t think it is ever a bad time to jump into VR, and prices on the hardware are pretty reasonable. I’d encourage everyone to try before you buy, but also you need more time with it than what you’d get at a demo booth. I really liked the 30 day refund thingy that the Windows Store (or was it 90?) gave because it gives you time to get to know the HMD and really make a determination. Is it worth the discomfort and/or lower resolution? Does it work well with the types of games I play? Will I get my money/value out of it? These are so individual specific, that it is really hard to make recommendations. Unlike something like Track IR, that, when it first came out, would be universally liked by anyone, VR is very subjective as to the benefits and drawbacks over 2D monitors.
I got similar numbers but my Lazy CPU (i7 8800) never goes above 19%. Still getting smooth gameplay but its just blurry. I guess I got to live with it.
Edit: Turned off
EDIT:I turned SVR to 220 and this has transformed the experience for me. My acid test for VR is the F-5E Vegas Free flight mission. I got decent to low fps but still playable. In a Caucuses Dogfight, I was in the mid to low 40s but buttery Smooooth.
Thanks for your sharing. Testing will continue…
Edit: Turned off MR and got even better fps now. Looks gorgeous.
