Oculus link speed change

Level 2

Dear VR Community,


I have a win 10 pc, 16gb ram, i7 6700, MSI Z170A motherboard, gtx 1070 and I'm trying to connect my Quest 2 with a NEWZEROL 6m USB C cable. After the initial setup (about 2 months ago) I got 2gbps result at the USB speedtest, but now I get only around 700 mbps. I recently updated my motherboard bios and win10 usb drivers but I cant get my speed back to that 2gbps. Could anyone help me with some advice?


Thanks in advance!

The same with me. I also just noticed that I only get 1.1Gbps instead of 2.1Gbps. Everything with unchanged components. And I just tried it again on my laptop ... I only get 882mbps ... 2 weeks ago it was a good 1.4-1.5Gbps

What's going on here?

I actually only looked for it because HL: Alyx just felt a bit choppy to me.

There are a lot of people saying the same, its because of the new update 27, some people are saying it is to force you to buy an official oculus cable!?!??

Nah man, it's every bit as bad on my official Link cable as it is on my cheap third party one.

Same here. Plus, stuck at 72hz. Disappointing!
