Will Oculus Quest 2 support my video card in future?

Hi!

I'm going to buy the Oculus Quest 2 but I just found that my video card (GeForce GTX 1650) is listed as Not Currently Supported.

Could you please let me know if Oculus has plans to add the support of this GPU soon?

I would be happy to get this info as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance!

    My guess would be no. It doesn't seem likely that they will work on less capable cards when things are changing so quickly. They're adding features and ability to Quest 2 as time goes on.

    Having said that, the Quest 2 is a "stand alone" headset and doesn't need a PC for you to enjoy VR.

    Thanks for your answer!

    I know that Quest 2 is standalone device, however I would like to be able to play such games as Half-Life Alyx for example. Any suggestions on it?

    And I would still be happy to get official answer from Oculus team on this topic. Perhaps their opinion may be different as the video card mentioned as Not Currently Supported.

    Unfortunately, you will not get any "official answer" from Oculus on this forum about anything (unless it is affecting thousands of their devices/customers). The best you will get is "I'm sorry you're having trouble with blah, blah, blah, please reach out to us by opening a support ticket here......"

    Heres my take there is no reason why oculus would invest time in a 1650, so don't hold your breath on 1650 support.  After the new gpus start filtering through the market place, there is no reason to optimize drivers for last years tech.
