I have an Oculus Quest 2 and Asus ROG Strix G17 G713 laptop w/ AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX cpu/igpu and RTX3060 dgpu. 64 GB DDR4 CL22 3200 RAM.
I couldn't get Oculus Air Link or Link to work.
Just three white dots forever loading nothing. So disappointing. 😕
Saw some comments online about issues with RTX3XXX laptops.
I combed the internet and tried everything. Changing default program settings in Windows for GPU selection changed nothing.
At first I just disabled the igpu in Device Manager and Link would kind of work. VR performance was unplayable. Stuttering beyond anything useable.
What eventually worked for me was:
1) Boot PC to Desktop.
2) Disable igpu (not dgpu) in Device Manager.
3) Load Oculus PC App.
4) Enable igpu in Device Manager.
Good to go. 👌
Instant Half-Life Alyx, Asgard's Wrath, Lone Echo, Boneworks, Onward, Battle Sister, Demeo = Heaven.
Huge relief after seemingly trying everything. I hadn't thought to re-enable my igpu after loading Oculus. That was the key.
When/if Oculus Tray Tool is loaded has no effect on this process. So if it loads first don't sweat it.
You can plug and unplug the Quest 2 at will afterwards.
Only need to repeat the process if you reboot your PC.
Hope this helps someone else.
Ps - I have wicked fast WiFi 6 internet w/laptop connected directly. Air Link doesn't perform as well as Link for me.
