Hardware: MSI gs65 Stealth notebook with RTX 2070 Max-Q
OS: Windows 10
Drivers: updated as of 3/22/2019
The Vive Pro is not detected as an external display. I have tried two different miniDP cables (from Cable Matters; both cables were recommended on this forum). They are DP 1.2 / 4K / 60Hz compatible. Another external monitor is properly detected, so I know the miniDP port is working.
I've been driving the Vive Pro with a GTX 970 so the RTX 2070 Max-Q ought to be fine; are their known issues with this GPU? RTX 2070 is on the supported list, but the Max-Q is not.
Some progress: I re-ran room setup, and could then see the home room on my HMD.
However the right-hand side was glitching badly - random, brightly colored polygons everywhere. Power-cycling the HMD / linkbox and restarting SteamVR made that go away.
Now I can see the home room but there is very bad judder when I move my head. SteamVR settings page shows 17ms render time and "motion smoothing on" whenever I move. When my head is not moving I see 3 - 7ms and "motion smoothing off."
Will update this thread as I progress, but so far this RTX 2070 laptop has not been a good out of the box experience.
