Ive been using alvr since pretty-much day one on the quest and I love it, mostly been playing racing games and shooters and its been a great experience once you set it all up properly so obviously im keen to get the oculus link working as soon as poss, the problem is what cable? I figure that 3m long will be fine for my play area and if so will any 3.1 usb cable be ok? ive been searching for 5gbps but there isn't a lot of difference in range of price or quality so its a proper headache!
If Oculus had the cable-on preorder I would have it on order already but until then im reluctant to buy any cables in case they don't work, can someone at oculus just go get a ten quid 3m cable and try it for us? or send me a beta and ill try it for myself just so people know! lack of info kills me at the best of times!
loving the idea of usb for the link as my laptop was the best I could get for the money but doesn't have display port or tb3 or anything (asus tuf fx505 i7 8750, 16gb 1060 6gb) but runs everything fine and most at max without issues so using usb is an awesome idea, pat on the back for oculus there!
