I had a 1070 with a skylake i5 6500, if I put the interleaved and asynchronous interleaved reprojection on in the VR settings I got smooth gameplay all the time but it caps at 45fps.So I'm running an R9 390 I get FPS drops and stutters in stations and RES sites. I'm looking into switching to nvidia because I just can't deal with AMD anymore. I want a 1080 but cost wise a 1070 is looking more likely. Does anyone have any issues with a 1070 on.let's say VR medium to VR high?
I upgraded to a i7 6700 and I get a constant 80-90fps now so don't have to use reprojection anymore.
VR is very CPU intensive.
I have everything on medium and my HMD setting to 1.2 and Supersampling to 1.2
, works great.
You should install Advanced Settings for your HTC VIVE, it allows you to change loads of stuff to tweak your Vive.
Also, chaperone tweaker is awesome if you have a non square play space, I have been able to map the chaperone bounds around my desk so I don't walk into it anymore
