HTC Vive Pro Eye, combined with an AMD CPU and the Wireless Adapter

Hello.
I have a quick question to users who use the Vive Pro (or an another supported HMD) with the Wireless Adapter.

Does anyone have still problems with a AM4-based platform, combined with the Wireless Adapter?
Or are these problems already solved in the past time?
If I may ask, which boards are you using if this problem are solved? 

The Disclaimer from HTC on their product page are still existing, so I'm not sure at all.
I had a short conversation with the support who I tell this problem but the support said that the poblems are already solved.

I saw a topic on Reddit which someone says that is depending which chipset you have on your board and it can be different between brands. (like ASRock, Asus, MSI, etc.)
Also I saw a official patch or hotfix which isn't available anymore.

I just need a few confirmations if possible.

Best regards.

Hi - HTC fixed the issues with AMD processors and chipsets in January last year. I have no idea why the disclaimer is still on the website @VibrantNebula?? The current download of Vive Wireless (from the Vive website) has all the fixes in it.

I've got a Gigabyte gaming motherboard (B450M) and not had any issues with Vive Wireless on the Pro or (now) the Cosmos since the fix.

Bear in mind it is far more demanding on your CPU - and be prepared to make some adjustments such as:-

  • Disabling hyperthreading
  • Shutting down any unnecessary processes
  • Boosting the priority of vrcompositor.exe and vrserver.exe

Not sure on your AMD processor - but I'd suggest that you need at least 8 cores. I started with the 2600 but that struggled sometimes, so now I've got the 2700X.

Hope this helps!

Hello.
Thanks for your helpful answer!

When I start with my project (this will take a while until the beginning) I think I will take a 3700X and a X570 Board for it. This should be enough for everything because the 3700X has 12 Cores.
I want to stream maybe sometimes in the future and it will also used for other stuff.

This was a good start for me to know if everything has been fixed or not.
Thank you so much!

I must edit the 3700X to a 3900X. That was my failure and I can't change this in the post above anymore.
