Intel NUC 11 Enthusiast not working with official Oculus Link cable

Level 2

Just want to give people a heads up here.  The official Oculus Link cable will not work with the NUC 11 Enthusiast. For some reason, which Oculus support cannot explain, when using this particular cable the headset will continuously disconnect from the PC when you enable Oculus Link in the Quest 2 headset.  It will stay connected anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes.  I guess the Thunderbolt 4 ports don't like this $80 cable. 


Also, it will sporadically display USB Not Recognized while other times it will display XRP Interface in the Device Manager. 


Either way, I have bought and tried every other $25 or less after market cable listed below and all of them worked with no issue.  But yet, the $80 "Official Oculus Link Cable" is the only cable that does not work.  Funny how that works huh?

Let me know if anyone is also seeing this with other systems.
