Maribel_Hearn Posted January 28, 2019 Share Posted January 28, 2019 Here is something that may help some people. If you are on a GeForce GPU, open your NVIDIA Control Panel. Select "Manage 3D Settings" in the left pane. Find "Virtual Realite Pre-Rendered Frames" and ensure it is set to "Use the 3D Application setting." This may smooth our your frame times I've found that the wireless adapter adds a couple ms of frame time on the CPU side, and if frame times get high, the pixelation will occur, regardless of CPU and GPU usage. Pixelation can be triggered by doing anything that raises frame time really high, say, above 20ms. The high frame time isn't caused by the wireless adapter itself, usually, but it responds to the high frame time by pixelating the image, I assume in an attempt to reduce the overhead and get the frame times a bit lower. Here is a checklist to go through as well to ensure maximum performance. 1: Set SteamVR super-sampling to 100% to ensure lowest possible frame times. 2: Close out all background applications that have notable CPU usage. 3: Check for thermal throttling on your CPU, GPU, VRM, and wireless adapter. Checking CPU and GPU temperatures will be easy, wireless adapter temperatures are a bit more challenging (There is a log file that shows the temperatures,) and VRM temperatures will be the most difficult. If your VRM is overheating, they will dial back the power they send to your CPU, which will lead to instability or low clock speeds. 4: Use a frame-time monitoring application like FPSVR to track CPU and GPU frame time in realtime while in VR, to help you pinpoint issues. 5: If issues continue, switch to wired and see if you get the same frame-time spikes that are triggering the pixelation while on wireless.
