Running HP Reverb G2 at 1/2 resolution...what's it look like?

I ask the question because I'm presently still running Rift cv1 with medium settings. If I can't run decent FPS using HP Reverb G2 at full resolution will it end up looking like what I have now with Rift cv1?

i7-10700k@3.80 turbo, 2080S, 64ram,

 

Thank you.

well not sure what you mean by half resolution? do you want to run the G2 @ 1080x1080?? Or do you mean running the Super Sampling down?

 

Well from what I qathered the Native res of the G2 is 2160x2160, now I seen Steam VR and other users who set the Percentage to 100% which seems it actually doubles that rez..

 

I think I seen a article about HP chimed in and said this is correct? I still think Steam VR reports the wrong percentage and in Steam VR the setting should be 50% that is what I ran with my 1080GTX and 10700K @ 5.0ghz.. and ran just fine.

 

I am still unsure what percentage you should set in the Steam VR but from what I can tell it should be 50% as that states a 2160x2160 rez

Thanks for your reply.  I don't use steam for anything, I only use the native program.

I read the following:

'A dialog will appear where the Resolution per eye can be set. Edit the Render resolution to be custom then use the slider to change the percentage. HP Reverb G2 is 2160×2160 per eye'.

You have to use Steam VR with WMR and DCS.

Define "Full resolution"...

 

Do you mean 50% in Steam resolution settings ? 

The 50% setting is still above the G2´s native resolution (50% = 2232x2188). To me it looks perfectly fine.

Everything above native resolution will improve the picture quality. The higher, the better. The slider goes to 500%, which is 7068x6920 per eye.

But as long as you don´t reduce the render resolution below the native resolution, it will be fine.

 

The G2 at 50% looks way better than my former Vive Pro at 100%.

Are you saying the only way to have this option with HP Reverb G2 is by using the combo of Steam VR with WMR and DCS?

I would think G2 would have its own native software to give you this option and many others.

Do you have to purchase G2 through Steam in order to use Steam options?

I thought the advertising of the G2 mentioned having among many options, the ability to reduce the device resolution by 1/2.  No mention of 3rd party software required to do this.

No.

I am saying DCS does not have native support for WMR headsets, hence the need to use Steam VR with WMR for the Reverb in DCS.

No way around that I am aware of.

Well if you are using a Reverb G2 then you need Steam VR and Windows mixed reality for SteamVR to run DCS, there is no way around it. in Steam VR you will find the "Per Eye setting" where you can change the resolution.. but like I was saying 50% sets you at the native res but you should to be able to go down a bit more but @ 2160x2160 and on a 1080GTX it runs fine with Reprojection.

There is actually a setting in the windows mixed reality options to run the headset at lower resolution (though it doesn´t say 1/2).

Check this video (he´s talking about it at around the 5 minute mark):
 

 

I haven´t tried it and, as was already said, DCS requires you to run Steam VR, and I´m not sure if that setting has any effect there or is overwritten by the resolution settings from Steam VR.

And generally, it´s not a good idea to run anything below native resolution. You will most likely take a hit in picture quality.

Thanks for the reply to you all!

The reason I don't use Steam and know very little about it, with the limited experience I had a couple of years back; I was unsuccessful trying to use Steam with software not purchased through Steam as I preferred purchasing direct from the software company.

Is Steam an online software store or is it a performance module to use with compnay purchased software? 

If you can purchase through Steam what is the benefit over direct purchase with the software company?
