  1. A few suggestions from an ignorant new user: 1. Avoid having wireless communication that interferes with 2.4GHz wifi. The 2.4GHz is a very darn common frequency and very established in home wifi. Many of us need the reach of 2.4GHz where 5GHz falls short. We also don't want to have to change settings on every cell phone, tablet, Nook, laptop, desktop, and TV that connects to our wireless due to ill conceived design of a toy. Please don't design something that conflicts with common, conventional, widespread devices. If you must be close to 2.4GHz -then connect to, and operate over, the home network just like every other wifi network device. Yeah, home wireless is too slow. So please stay away from 2.4GHz with your next VIVE device. 2. Think outside the box, literally. Have the wireless adapter connect into the HDMI port on the back of the video card, and USB wireless transmitter plug connect into a USB port on the back of the PC. In other words, connect into the same spots the cables do. This won't use up an additional PCIe lane, use up a card slot, be affected by processor type, GPU type, mother board chip set, or any other internal hardware. It won't increase demand on the CPU. It won't require installing drivers. It won't need bios tweaks. It won't change system requirements. Lots of HDMI transceivers already work this way. Don't reinvent the HDMI transceiver. These external connections won't be any uglier than the existing wireless device that still wires to an antennae device. This should make pre-release testing much, much easier. It would also result in a product with very broad applications. (Just need the receiver put in a "hat" for gamers or have the whole receiver thing go into pants pocket like the current wireless system battery does. 3. Avoid having products made by bitter rivals have to work together, in a new way, at an intermediate point. Connect the goesintas to the comesouttas. In the case of USB and HDMI for the headset, the comesottas are outside the PC box. The comesouttas also tend to be very standardized. 4. I would think that by contacting one the many HDMI wireless transceiver companies, you could have the next version built in less time than the AMD compatibility problem has existed. @stvnxu
