Beta-SteamVR update improved tracking when using Oculus Oculus Quest through Link.
Oculus Link allows you to use a Quest as a PC VR headset. Although this makes it easy to play games Oculus for PC, it also allows you to use a Quest with SteamVR.
Released today in beta version of SteamVR 1.10.31 makes adjustments to the forecast track when using the Quest with SteamVR. In particular, Valve says that the adjustment reduces the delay of the positioning, which means players should see less delay when you move the head in space (as opposed to simply turning on the spot).
In the notes to the update States that the improvement was done by the “repair Outlook”. Forecasting the movements of the headset is the key to reducing apparent latency in VR, but if the forecast is off, it may worsen the situation. SteamVR may have been applied to the prediction of Quest like Rift, but as the rendering pipeline for the Quest on the Oculus Link is very different, it may not be as accurate as we would like.
SteamVR users can get access to this beta update today by clicking right-click SteamVR in your Steam library, select “Betas” and select “SteamVR Beta Update” from the drop-down list. If you don’t discovered any major bugs, the update will eventually be deployed in the main branch SteamVR, which will be automatically deployed to all users.
In recent time, Valve constantly updates SteamVR, including the release of new and improved dashboard VR earlier this month.
