Computer does not meet minimum requirements for Rift

Level 2
I am not a computer wiz and I could use some help:

I am trying to connect my Oculus Quest to a new computer to be able to use the Oculus Link to play Rift games. I receive the message that my computer does not meet the minimum requirements to play Rift game which could affect my VR experience.  I am using a recommended 3rd party cable to connect the Quest and my Lenovo.  I can connect the two, but cannot control everything as one would expect.

My new Lenovo computer has the following specs:
  • Powered by latest 9th Generation Intel Hexa-Core i7-9750H Processor @ 2.60GHz(6 Cores, 12M Cache, up to 4.50 GHz), Powerful 6-core, twelve-way processing performance.
  • 17.3" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS, 300nits, anti-glare, 60Hz Display; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB Graphics
  • 16GB DDR4 2400 SDRAM Memory for full-power multitasking; 1TB 7200 rpm HDD + 256GB PCIE SSD offer enough storage for your files. Pci-e SSDs are great for major gaming applications, multiple servers, daily backups, and more.
  • 802.11AC (2 x 2) & Bluetooth 4.1; USB-C, 3 x USB 3.1 (Gen 1), Mini DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0, RJ45, Kensington lock, Audio combo jack
  • Windows 10 Home; Backlit Keyboard - US English

There have been various posts about this error message appearing with people having GTX 1650, it appears Oculus have not whitelisted the GPU in the software, see this thread.

Level 2
Nividia claims 1650 is "up to 70% faster than the GTX 1050 on the latest games." and in practice, I can see a difference of 30% at least comparing my old 1050 to the 1650.

On oculus link 1050 is whitelisted and I wasn't getting this message, so not whitelisting 1650 is idiotic. Any workarounds around Compatibility.json anyone?
