Will Adapters Work On Quest Link?

i have a VR Ready PC but it does not have a USB C port. Will there be a adapter or is there a VR Ready adapter for USB C to Display Port Adapter?

    As long as your motherboard has USB 3.1 Gen2, then you're fine. My pc has both USB 3.1 Gen2 C and A ports. If you have 3.1 Gen2 but it's a usb-a, then get a usb-a to usb-c adapter. This isn't from the display port, only the usb port.

    btw...I think you posted in the wrong section...this question is for Quest, but it's the Rift/Rift-S section.

    Moved to Quest section.

    They've said A to C adapters should work, as well as any good quality USB 3 cable. As far as which USB spec (3.0, 3.1, 3.2, gen1, gen2, etc.), they said that they'll release detailed specs closer to launch.

    The various USB 3.0 specs are all a bit confusing, but I'm going to try the initial beta with my USB 3 active extensions that I use for my CV1 sensors, plus the USB 3 A to C cable that I use for side-loading, and hope for the best.

    USB C add-on PCIe cards are cheap and readily available, so I'll probably install one of those in my PC once the official Oculus Link cable comes out.

    No, needs to be usb 3.0 for Link.  USB 2.0 will only charge it, and do basic data transferring.

    I'm in the same situation. I've bought the Link cable and have a USB type-A 3.1 gen 2 connection on my PC. Many threads, no responses!

    I use these adapters from Amazon and they work ok;

    I'm sure if you do a bit of googling you will find similar ones.

    Ya, I also have those and they work fine as well.  Your link looks like an assorted variety but the pic is correct.
