Vive pro wireless adaptor and laptop

Just a last question about the future vive wireless adaptor. Is it possible to plug in on the Alienware 15r4?? I saw it needs a pci express port. If not, can you give the solution please.

@Gui., at this time, Vive and DisplayLink have only confirmed a PCI-e version of the wireless transmitter. The TPCast would be the next fallback option. 

 

Edit: The TPCast/TPCast + do not support Pro as of this post.

Hello,

 

Thanks for your answer, but when you said “TPCast would be the next fallback option”, I don’t thing there is a compatibility between those 2 devices vive pro an tpcast?

@Gui., you're correct. I apologize, I don't keep up to date with that project. I'm sure third parties are working on wireless solutions but it's hard to say which will come to market and potential implementations. As stated above, we've only announced plans for a PCI-E platform when it comes to the first party wireless solution.

I'd like to use a laptop using the wireless adapter? Thunderbolt to pci-e , would it work?

It isn't recommended to use work arounds for Laptop/Wireless Adapter. We can't say for sure if it will work and wouldn't want you to risk spending the money on something that might not work.
