THIS IS YOUR DAILY REMINDER THAT RIFT WILL ONLY WORK WITH SPECIFIC USB CONTROLLERS
If your board using any of the following -
VIA USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller
ASMedia USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller
ASMedia XHCI Controller
Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible-Hostcontroller
Then tough shit. Hope you haven't already bought a new board without checking first, Senpais
More like VIA USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controllerfags, ASMedia USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controllerfags, ASMedia XHCI Controllerfags and Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible-Hostcontrollerfags BTFO I'd say.
Aren't at least half of the USB ports on a mobo supported by the chipset itself? I can only imagine this being a problem on older systems that needed a separate chip to support USB3.
I certainly hope you weren't expecting your old as hell system to support VR, right?
Just opened the spec sheet of an Asus x99 mobo and got pic related. Seems that at least four ports are indeed controlled by the chipset, so you just have to plug them into the right ones is all.
ASUS Maximum Gene VII
>Intel® Z97 chipset :
>4 x USB 3.0 port(s) (2 at back panel, blue, 2 at mid-board)
I don't give a shit about VR but if I wanted there's no way to plug 4 usb 3.0 because the positioning is shit.
>ASMedia USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller
works on my machine :^)
mid-board just means there's a header for USB3, usually meant for the front panel, but you can always get one of pic related and route them all back.
you are right, I thought about that after posting. I checked the new board (Z170, GENE VIII) and it has 6 in the back and 2 in midboard but still comes with an ASMedia controller for a USB type-C in the back and a regular one in the front.
> My GA-990FX-UD3 gives the same thing
Time to kill myself
Most of /a/ is okay with SAO. /a/ was flooded with threads about it at first. Then it hit the point where it was too popular and you couldn't have a thread without seeing something from SAO. Then people started getting angry. Mix that with how slice of life the Fairy Dance arc was and you have the world's biggest backlash.
/a/ seemed to love S2, though.
More like PC fags BTFO, this whole time they've been using shitty USB 3.0 controllers that have terribad performance.
Thank Oculus for pointing this flaw out. Hopefully more manufacturers will actually use quality parts next time.
I think the problem is that the Rift demands full bandwidth from all ports, but the controller manufacturers didn't anticipate having to push all ports full tilt, since most devices do not work that way. How often would you get the equivalent of a person trying to copy a massive file to four external drives simultaneously?
How close is the head tracking on the DK1 to the current rift? I saw a driver board for an iPad mini display, along with a clone of the dk1 gyroscope unit, so I thought that someone could rig together one using one of those phone vr cases from China for about $150
that's not true.
the rift will use 1 hdmi input and 1 usb 3.0 host
the sensor will use 1 usb 3.0 host.
the controller can be connected to any usb 2.0 host.
the oculus touch controller adds a 3.0 usb host probably
Is this good? A am I gonna make it?
I'd kill for SAO-Tier VR.
The Anne may was garbage though.
>implying vr is exclusively meant to play games
it's not anon. you just won't grasp it as of now. just let is slowly crawl up your rectum until your realise it for yourself, no need to hate on it now
>full 3d virtual work environment when?
Well, if we don't need to draw omg-so-cinematic AAA graphics or anything we should have the technology to make a 4K VR set. Might be enough for terminals. I think there already are 4K phone screens, which obviously have no purpose other than this.
