I did this too and definitely improved my experience. Way less dropped frames and much smoothers throughout.This is genius. Thank you so much for posting this. I just got my Rift yesterday and immediately ran into this problem. It was unplayable. I am running an i7-3820 with 16GB RAM and a GTX1080 SC2 card, and I found that I had to share the CPU cores equally between ED and Oculus as follows, so I could have the graphics maxed out and not get jitters even on a planet surface:
Run ED then go to TASK MANAGER>DETAILS tab: Right-Click program > Affinity
EliteDangerous64.exe: cores 0-3
OculusVR.exe: cores 4-7
OVRServer_x64.exe: cores 4-7
Now the head-tracking is butter-smooth, and no loss of frames either.
Anyone with an older CPU should try this .
