    I've also ordered the top-end model with the UHD, should be arriving this week. I'll then compare that panel to the default FHD IPS, see how they stack up.

    My son just got this laptop and we have been trying unsuccessfully to use an Oculus Rift with it. Basically the OR starts playing video normally and then within a minute or two the video starts cutting out, and then finally the screen goes black. The sound and touch sensors continue to work normally as does the video on the laptop, it is only the video in the headset that drops out. This is our second OR unit so mostly likely not an OR issue.

    We have trouble shot everything, disabled power savings, flipped everything to run off the 1050ti chip, all with no luck. Is this laptop capable of displaying the OR properly, and if so are there specific settings that we need to use to accomplish this? Thanks

    According to the Oculus Rift website, your setup should work. Minimum has been lowered to GTX 960. For laptops, I thought that the 1060 was considered minimum for VR, but the 1050ti should be close. https://www.octopusrift.com/pc-for-the-oculus-rift/

    Thanks for the reply.

    Flipped the USB cable for the headset over to the left side and was able to get about 3 minutes of google earth vr before it glitched and went black.

    Spoke with MS tech support who claimed any 1050 card should work fine, while Dells tech support said the 1050ti will not work properly. They then directed me to Nvidea website which shows all of the VR Ready cards. The 1050ti is not listed, you need the 1060 on up.

    Every setting on the dell is set up for max gaming performance, so running out options here. May try to contact Nvidea directly to hear their view.

    Seems clear something on the dell is maxing out and shutting the video down, just don't know if it's the 1050ti or the USB inputs.

    Is there anything running in the background on the computer? Anything, including stuff like antivirus, GeForce Experience, monitoring or scheduled tasks, GPU monitoring or management, etc. I have a computer with a graphics card that is on the borderline minimum spec for a particular game. If any other program is open, the game will crash. I have also found that GPU software like MSI Afterburner will cause games to stutter or run poorly when at minimum specs. Check Task Manager and see what's running.

    Thanks for the heads up. I've never messed with overclocking panels, but appreciate the info.
