* Edit: You can get steady >60 fps, but only by lowering the settings to the point that there is no point having the HP Reverb.

Are you using the Reverb now? Also, keep in mind that there is a big improvement for DCS coming shortly (I'm hoping tomorrow, but probably in two weeks).

It's been my experience that 45FPS is good enough for very smooth VR.

Hi Hans,

No. I have two setups. 1) A 5280x2880 monitor (Dell Ultrasharp UP2715K) with a TrackIR 5 head tracker and 2) a new Oculus Rift S VR setup that I am currently getting to grips with.

In the VR world I've only had direct experience of the Rift S. Not had any experience of older VR headsets nor of the HP Reverb or the Valve Index, both of which I am interested in. (I've been reading their threads on this forum to learn peoples' experience with these).

Gotcha. Rift S is pretty good by all that I've read. And not bad performance wise. I'm also reading that other DCS users are getting steady 45 FPS with Reverb. So I'm hopeful. I'll know tomorrow night.
