Dear Oculus community
I got a Quest 2 recently. I wanted to connect it to a Windows PC and use it with Air Link.
I have 2 Options and need help in deciding if both work equally :
Option 1> I have an ESXi server running on a AMD Ryzden 16 Core machine at home. I can spin up a Windows PC with Windows 10 (virtual) on the same network on which Oculus is.
Option 2> I can setup a desktop PC separately for the Oculus SteamVR. (as per minimum requirements).
I prefer Option 1: its cheaper.. has anyone tried it ? any gotchas ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The performance of option 1 will depend heavily on the performance of the vGPU in the VM. What physical GPU do you have in the ESX box, is it vDGA compatible (from here ) and is it utilising DirectPath I/O? If it is, you may have a chance, although the GPU performance may still be negatively affected by the passthrough API and Airlink is famously fussy about the GPUs it'll cooperate with.
Expect to go with option 2 in the end.
