Yeah, turns out you also have your port connected to dedicated GPU directly, which is not the case in many laptops (esp. with Optimus).

I hope this info can be useful before buy :-)
This is quite a depressing news.
I would like to find a few thing though.
The article says USB/Thunderbolt 3. I am assuming this means a single type C USB port that supports thunderbolt 3.
I was hoping a my laptop which has a type C-USB port and seperate thunderbolt 3 port would have a chance of being compatible with the rift S.

So wouldn't a standalone thunderbolt 3 port be okay in this case.


Edit

Sorry just check again. It is not a seperate thunderbolt 3 port but a type C-USB port with a thunderbolt 3 with thunderbolt symbol beside it.

You have to check to which GPU the port is connected, as explained in the article.
Thunderbolt connected to nvidia GPU will work. Thunderbolt connected to Intel probably won't.

Yeah, I just checked it and sadly it is connected to the Intel integrated graphics.
I was really hoping I would be able to use the rift S on both my desktop and laptop.
I guess I would have to reconsider the Rift S thing. Perhaps look out for the Odyssey plus on sale.

Thanks

Take note that Odyssey+ requires HDMI 2.0. And it can have similar issues when port is routed through integrated GPU.
Anyway, there's some conflicting statement over the internet. Some say such configuration doesn't work with Oculus, some say it does. Of course I mean CV1, no user reports on Rift S yet.

In case someone is wondering, this is how it looks like.
Currently the laptop screen runs on Intel Graphic because of Eco mode.
But you can see in GTX 1060 box HDMI + Display Port symbols (even if it is actually mini Display Port).

I think you'll have a better luck to find this kind of configuration on gaming laptop rather than more casual brand. This one is MSI. But I'm not planning to play VR on this one, it would be a bonus if it runs good enough

I wonder if the new round of Chinese tariffs is going to raise the price of VR headsets?
