Mine sits at 100% CPU usage on more intense beat saber maps with only 50% GPU usage. That AMD CPU is ok for budget laptops but this should have a 6 core i7
What other vr games have you tried

There must be something wrong with your laptop, the CPU on it should be more than enough for VR. Maybe you have the power mode set to power saver or balanced, or maybe the CPU is throttling, or another process is stealing the CPU power.

Nope everything set to max performance, fans screaming. Sustained boost is ~3.6Ghz on all cores. GPU is generally 30-50% range so there's headroom there. On easier maps up to expert its fine, but expert+ it goes to 100% and drops frames here and there. I wanted to do mods...but all of them make the game unplayble since CPU is flatlined @ 100%. Other games run pretty ok, for me Cities Skylines and Beat Saber are the poor performers.

CPU may be throttling too, I've seen it drop to 3-3.1Ghz too. 96C was the highest on CPU reported in HWmonitor, 75C on GPU
