Quest 2 won't link to gaming laptop

Hi there,

I bought my daughter a new gaming computer and was assured it was compatible with connecting the Oculus Link. Can anyone see what the problem might be....it has the following spec:

  • AMD Ryzen™ 5 4600H Mobile Processor with Radeon™ Graphics

  • Windows 10 Home 64bit, English, Dutch, French, German, Italian

  • AMD Radeon™ RX 5600M 6GB GDDR6

  • 8GB, 2x4GB, DDR4, 3200MHz2

  • 56GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive

I was assured it was compatible with connection to Oculus Link but I get the message on screen saying it doesn't meet the minimum requirements but I've checked the criteria and thought it did.
 
She only really wants to play VR in Roblox which is a bit of a waste of a gaming laptop but it's really disappointing that it doesn't work.
 
Any help would be appreciated.

I recently had problems with Oculus Link & an Nvidia gfx card. While searching for a solution I also read some reports of some AMD radeon drivers that were causing problems with Oculus Link.

 

Did you install the latest radeon drivers? Maybe look for this problem on Reddit/Google.

Edit: also - make sure the OVRServer_x64.exe is actually using the gfx card and not the embedded gpu on the cpu. You can force that in Windows - Settings - Graphic Settings
