Let me play Steam VR Games without the performance hungry device known as Oculus app running in the background.
Don't know about you... but whenever I play any steam vr game (which I do much more often than oculus), it takes up about 26% of my cpu, and a decent chunk of my memory. All I really want is a way to play GORN without my cpu ******** itself, due to the oculus app. Make it less performance hungry, or just an option to make it gone in general.

I don't mean to sound elitist here, but uh... you could just upgrade your rig? I have decent specs, not fantastic, but I can still play everything with both open just fine, so it might be more about your specific setup than the software itself.
Try with openComposite
I played Elite Dangerous (Steam version) with the steamvr not active. Runs nice, if i activate it, i got frame drops. Both runing with the oculus app on desktop. Did you try not actvating steamvr?
