My motherboard only has USB3.0 ports. I’ve seen a lot saying you need USB3.1 Gen1 for Oculus Link to work, however reading the pc requirements on the support website ( it says only 3.0 is required. Can anyone confirm if oculus link works in a 3.0 port?

    This from CNET site.

    Not the first USB name change

    This isn't the first time USB names have shifted. USB 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 were absorbed into USB 2.0. When USB 3.1 showed up, USB 3.0 suddenly became USB 3.1 Gen 1, and the newer standard received the label USB 3.1 Gen 2.
    My Oculus connected to USB 3.0 A shows as 3.1 version.
