Hi all, I’m fairly new to PCVR and I’m curious about some performance differences between worlds in this game and the huge variation of users per instance. I have a system with an i9-13950HX, RTX 4080 Laptop, 32GB DDR5-5600MHz. I run a Quest 3 at 170% resolution scaling via SteamLink capped at 72Hz, the foveated thing is at around 75% of the bar but I can’t recall the exact number. VRChat settings are set at the High preset with no avatar limitations. This is my sweet spot in terms of image quality and framerate and I don’t have a problem with the performance however I’m really curious about something.
In the home world, or any really basic world I will of course get 72fps by myself and sometimes with someone else in the instance. Now it starts getting weird with this next thing, there’s a world named “Spanish Club” which is extremely basic looking and easy to render, to the point where I can be in an instance with 50 people total, all avis enabled and get 50-55fps. Yet, in a much much smaller world like “Cuddle Me” which has better looking graphics but not by much, I’ll be sitting there with only 2 other people and get 35-40fps. I wonder how it’s possible that a world with good-ish graphics can make my fps drop more than 50 avatars combined (my safety settings are show only base avatar and voice for every rank, Friends have everything enabled). Am I missing something?
