    Do you guys think a ranger with a 1070 would support an Oculus rift S?
    Using steam and oculus compatibility tests everything seems to be fine with the specs (results in the files), but I was wondering if I would be limited by the displayport and/or the USB.

    Oh seems you have a R5. Should work ok. My R4 does work with 1070M

    The mDP on the Ranger/R4 is 1.2(a?), and both have USB 3 ports

    Thank you both. Looks like everything should be fine, I may order it in the next 30 days.

    I've played superhot vr on the psvr it's super fun, I'll check robo recall, everyone seems to like that. I also want to use the oculus to see what is like to develop for VR and how I can implement the headset in my workflow.

    So it took longer than expected but here we are.
    So far I can only say that it seems to work great I've also tried some games but I'm not ready to post detailed results yet. For now here you go: an Oculus Rift S working on a 2013 laptop.

    Does the Rift S put less stress on the USB 3.0? I had to get some Germans to sign the old 2013 Intel drivers to get them to fix the USB issues in Win10.

    The OG Rift on R4 is super picky about the camera setup since I think the USB 3.0 latency/bandwidth is at the max.

    I've had no problems with the rift s, perhaps it's because it uses only one usb port since it doesn't have the external cameras. What kind of problems did you have?
