Hi All,

 

Thank you to everyone that submitted the info I requested earlier.  I wanted to send a quick note that all configurations are being examined by our engineering team and partners.  As soon as I have an update I will post here.

 

Thank you,

I've tried placing the wGig card in socket 1 and sockets 2 and 3 (with the GPU in either 1 or 2, depending) and in every configuration, no matter weather I've forced PCIe Gen 3 speeds and/or 4x4x4x4x socket splits in my BIOS, I can't manage to make my system detect the wiGig card at all. Unlike some reporters with larger mobo's, I don't have a downclocked unstable x1/x4 socket; I just straight up can't get the card to be recognized in any of the x16 sockets that it aughta work fine in. I've seen a poster on reddit with pretty much the exact same issue with the slightly larger model of this motherboard (that does have the smaller pcie socket), except he can also repro the unstable system using the smaller socket (in addition to not being recognized in the larger sockets).

 

Would be great to know when this gets fixed, since I doubt I'm going to be watching this thread like a hawk.


 

 

I don't know if this helps but I managed to get mine to work in the 4x Gen 3.0 slot on my board (full slot).  It would *not* work in the 8x slot which shares bandwidth with the 16x slot where my vid card is located - it would not be recognized in this slot.  Take a look at which slots are sharing bandwidth, maybe that will help?

 

I never tried it in a 1x slot.  When it recognized and worked in the 4x, slot, I didn't tempt fate and try further configurations.

 

Gigabyte GA-AX370 Gaming 5

Ryzen 7 1700

Gigabyte GeForce GTX1080 8GB D5X

 

BTW, that GA-AX370 Gaming 5 is relatively cheap now and it seems solid - if anyone is looking for a quick solution (that costs a little bit).

AFAIK, All the PCIE slots on the x399m taichi are capable of running at full x16 bandwidth (so there's no limited socket to try; though I tried all of them anyway). TR4 socket CPUs have a _ton_ of lanes available directly off the CPU, IIRC, it's > 50 after accounting for the lanes reserved by the x399 chipset.

Re: Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

I have a Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming K7 and it doesn't work on mine.  I don't think it's a very good idea to suggest people go out and buy a new motherboard to solve a compatibility issue that blatantly needs to be handled by the manufacturer of the product.

The good or bad idea is wheather or not one chooses to act on it and it is subjective at that.  My Vive-pro starter kit came in before the system was built and the wireless 5 days after.  There is *nothing* on the system but drivers (updated), Win 10 (updated), Steam/Steam VR, Vive software and a smattering of VR games.  And the wireless worked fine as soon as I plugged it into the PCIEX4 slot.  If someone has time and $100 and thinks another motherboard may be the answer, they have the info.

 

On another note, our MBs are almost identical with the exception of the K7 being an Overclocker's board.  Plugging the WiGig card into PCIEX8 does not work - again, my guess is that it is related to the fact that it is sharing bandwidth with PCIEX16 which is certainly where the vid card is plugged in.  PCIEX4 worked fine - and I think I made a mistake in the last post - the PCIEX4 is a 2.0 slot...and the card works fine).

 

NOTE:  I contacted support *before* pre-ordering my wireless adapter and asked about the compatability of the PCI slots in the ax370 Gaming 5 (again, same config as the K7) and he said:

 

"Regarding your inquiry, I want you to know that the PCIe WiGig card is compatible with x4, x8, and x16, but personally, I would like to recommend you to connect it to the x16 or x8, as it will run a lot better. It might work in the x1 but we cannot assure you that it will work smoothly, nevertheless, you can use it with x4, x8, and x16."

 

Also, to try and provide more helpful info for your board - I was using the drivers that came with the MB and then updated to the current drivers (18.10.20 - we should have the *exact* same drivers for D/L from Gigabyte).  Both the old and the newest drivers were no problem for the WiGig and adapeter.

 

Specs (again):

Gigabyte GA-AX370 gaming 5

Ryzen 7 1700

16gb DDR3200

Samsung EVO 970 1TB

Gigabyte GeForce GTX1080 8GB (D5X)

Re: Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

There was some kind of an update to Steam VR today, and my headset works perfectly now.

 

Anyone else experience this???

I have the same B350 board and ryxen5 1600 cpu  , if i go to accessories in the bios ( first column ) you can stipulate whether the pci-e slot is gen1 , gen2 or gen3  , please let me know if this helps as I'm pondering buying  a wireless etup too

@Pyrostasis as I know you also have a threadripper, try setting it to "Game Mode" in Ryzen Master as this solved all my issues and a few other threadripper folks issues.

@Jeremy_SC2

I've been in gaming mode for months as a few games I used to play constantly BSOD'ed unless I was.

I can use the Wireless adapter as long as I dont access my games from the HMD and execute via steam. ITs just not a great way to play.

Ah **bleep**, too bad.  It is completely seamless for me now.  Hope they figure out what it is soon that is causing it.

Re: Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

Are you using steamVR beta?
I have the x470 version of your motherboard, seems your 1x slots are set to PCIe 2.0 standard. Or are you plugged into a x16 slot (where your GPU would fit)?

Yes this makes 3 weeks and still no official statement, status update. Definitely not sticking with HTC next generation...

And after a day of having the system work perfectly it's  back to BSOD and freezing for no apparent reason.

What the hell...?

Re: Wireless adapter incompatible with RYZEN cpus

@GlueBreatg It appears I have the same mobo as you (Asus STRIX X470-F), only I have a 1700X. I'm just curious, which PCI slot do you have your videocard in, and which slot did you put the wireless adapter in? I'd like to try the same setup as you when my wireless adapater arrives to minimize any issues.
