Keep in mind, if you don’t see your card listed in the above “supported” section, we can’t guarantee compatibility at this time.

*Note, we’re currently working directly with AMD to support as many of their cards as possible by the time we exit beta.


Cable Requirements:
Oculus Link requires a high-quality USB-3 cable. While we'll be releasing our Oculus Link cable later this year, for the beta period, if you want to try out Oculus Link we'd recommend looking for a high quality USB C to C or USB A to C cable with proven performance. While quality can vary across cables, we've tested the Anker cable internally with good results. Click through to the countries below to find where to buy the Anker cable in your region.

Although virtual reality can be used for gaming, it is also becoming popular for other purposes such as allowing a person to feel as if they are in a virtual reality documentary.

North America | Canada | UK | Japan | Australia | GermanyKeep in mind, the charging cable that came with your Quest won't work with the Oculus link software. Your charging cable is USB-2, while link requires a USB-3 cable that can support both power and data.
Software Requirements

To use Oculus Link, you'll need to download the Oculus PC app if you haven't already. Once you've downloaded the PC app, make sure that the Oculus PC software version is update, and that your Quest is running the latest operating system to ensure compatibility. More information on setup can be found Setting up your Quest with Oculus Link.
