There is an displayport to mini displayport adapter in the box. I'm not sure that rift s work with an displayport to hdmi adapter, surely is not officially supported.
I read it somewhere but i don't remember where...sorry

That would be unfortunate if it did not work, sure would make easy access for me if it would work.
I can still use one of my Display Ports on back of my GPU, would just leave it plugged in all the time then.

Yeah I have done a little more research and it looks like you can't adapt from HDMI to Display Port....you can go the other way, but thats not what we need. So yea, the DP port on the card it will be.

I am not much of a computer geek.
I have thunderbolt 3 port on my system beside the hdmi port, so I am wondering if the thunderbolt port would serve as a display port for the Oculus rift S.

Thanks in advance fellows.

Thunderbolt 3 natively supports display port protocol and can drive up to 4k@120Hz display. It should be fine.

The problem with HDMI (even with adapter) is that the most common HDMI 1.4 does not support the bandwidth required for Rift S (2560×1440@80Hz).

Bugger, sure would have been nice if I could have done that.
Well I will just have to plan on connecting it directly to the GPU then.
Thanks for the info.
