I can validate @Yessy's report, this is something we've observed in testing. We don't have any definitive guidelines on it because there's virtually limitless combinations of PC hardware that can be achieved but some ports and controllers simply don't supply clean power or utilize a proprietary USB. controller (e.g. Asusmedia) rather than using the CPU.
For watchman based hardware, Valve and HTC recommends Inateck USB controllers; specifically the KTU3FR-2O2I. Switching to these solves a ton of common USB-based issues and can improve tracking performance in some use-cases, especially with certain boards like some variations of the Z170. It's pretty tricky to isolate an issue to the USB controller however hence why it's not something we commonly speak to as we wouldn't want to advise people to spend $ on hardware unless we had reasonable certainty it would help.
