Folks, pls tell me, my PC is a Intel I-5 Quad C with a so called "Sandy Bridge" Motherboard, coming from 2011... it has of course USB plugs and HDMI, but Im not too sure about USB connectivity with latest VR Googles.

 

As Im about to get a CV1, I learned it has "USB 3.0" to be plugged into the PC.

 

Question: Does my Motherboard still Support this so called USB 3.0 tehcnoligy or will it fail , resulting in the VR CV1 not beeing detected by my Computer ?

I have a friend that runs Oculus Rift on a Sandy Bridge MB, an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO.

 

That runs fine.

I think there was slight problems with getting it to work at first, but now it works fine.

System specs:

 

Gigabyte Aorus Master, i7 9700K@std, GTX 1080TI OC, 32 GB 3000 MHz RAM, NVMe M.2 SSD, Oculus Quest VR (2x1600x1440)

Warthog HOTAS w/150mm extension, Slaw pedals, Gametrix Jetseat, TrackIR for monitor use

This might help

Be cautious with that one:

It will report a Sandy Bridge CPU as incompatible, and it is not necessarily true.

 

It might also report a USB 3 controller as incompatible, even if it is not.

 

It's better to Google people's results on similar HW, than rely on this tool.
