VR Help needed.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What i'm asking today is if i can use the HDMI port on my motherboard for my VR. As in Use it as if it's my graphics cards. I have an MSI B450 TOMAHAWK and a MSI RX 5500XT 8GB. 

Any one know how to or if it's even possible? I seen stuff relevant to this in some older LTT videos but i want to make sure i do this 100% right.

No,

 

Nothing is supplying those ports anything (if you don't have an APU)

Any reason you can't use the port on the actual card?

I personally don't know and don't think it would be worth the trouble of doing so

Oculus Rift (non S) and HTC vive are both HDMI. Overwhelmingly common in the VR world as well.

the Club3D Displayport to HDMI adapters ususually work for the Rift, if not, get one for your monitor and use the headset over native HDMI.
