Obviously it's not your hardware, couldn't be much faster at the moment.

So, it probably is your software. OS, apps, unneeded services that are running, pagefile, background apps, monitoring software, update settings, etc etc. Software optimization is key for DCS I've noticed.

And if it turns out it's not that either, than all that's left is waiting for ED to optimize DCS, like they did/do with this upcoming update.
Software optimization is highly underrated. Faster hardware with poorly optimised software won't give you increased performance.

Its a new clean install of winders, so aside from steam/dcs a few other games nothing else not even a spare web browser. So its not some jank sofware, leaving.... DCS, which is not really surprising. I'm looking forward to the optimization on the maps, but I'm sure I'll eat whatever improvement with a next gen HMD that I will inevitably buy, though I can run most things on high with a PD near 2.0 without too many problems, so "in theory" I should be GTG with a Reverb at PD1.0 and the other settings the same.

Ah, PD 2.0, forget I said anything.

Yeah, new VR. Seeing is believing in my case, specs are not everything. I just seriously doubt if anyone will be able to fully enjoy the announced specs of those high-res VR sets with current gen GPU's, with decent graphics settings in DCS.

Sorry.

Well, we will all find out. With a 50% increase in frame rates I think its doable for high end cards.
