Hi all

just thought I would post a couple of videos to show VR on the Oculus Rift s and that you can run VR with some good results

Thanks

Can you connect the Oculus Rift S to a 2019 16" MacBook Pro ?:

Hi All

I have posted before about running the Oculus Rift S on the 16" MBP and while the Oculus App says the laptop is below spec, games do run well. Just been playing The Walking Dead Saints and Sinners which has just come out.

I dont have FPS but the game is more than playable

@johnrs Thanks for the posting! Have you tried Oculus Quest via Oculus Link as well? Would be interesting to know if the 5500 is capable to run it.
I tried it with Mac Pro 7.1/8-Core/580X. Its generally running, but with a noticeable much too slow frame rate.

Thanks for posting this OP, personally I have never tried any VR games before but glad to know that the hardware is able to handle it. :)
