HTC seems to not be talking or updating $&#@ after acknowledging there are issues with some ryzen systems and Vive wireless. Having worked in development many years at big companies I get that, but it is still frustrating. Maybe my recent upgrade and experience can be helpful to others. I was rocking an I5 3750 oc to 4, or 4.1 if house was cool. Had a 1080ti and 8 gig of memory. Vive standard. Worked pretty good. I acquired a second 1080ti cheaply, and ran them SLI. Moved to a 4k Samsung 40" display. Yay, 4k gaming. At 4k with 1080ti sli, the processor did fine still. With most games. Particularly the 3 games made in the last 5 years that can actually use sli... Pro tip, currently I find sli ain't worth it unless it's pretty much free. In VR, so few games use it. Then I got a Vive wireless. Cord free! Wait... That looks a little pixelated. Like... Atari 2600. And 3 fps. Wth. I runs sys monitor tools. Graphics cards usage level = phoning it in. No joke. Looked like I was running 640x480 from how low the cards were taxed. Cpu usage level = child labor sweat shop utilization So... time to upgrade. Apparently the Vive wireless really wants some extra threads and cpu time. I wanted to jump over to AMD but had read all the posts on bad experiences with Ryzen and Vive wireless. I read HTC support and forums. Wow, that was unhelpful. After reading lots of threads I picked up that it seemed much more like motherboard or chip issues and not processor. A few specific boards don't seem to have issues. Asus Crosshair VI, lots of issues. Asus Crosshair VII didn't have any complaints. Different chipsets, but the same chipsets didn't have the same results on other manufacturers boards, and sometimes different boards on the same brand. It did seem Asrock boards do pretty well with Vive wireless. X470 does better than X3xx. Those are not 100% though. Best bet is to look for someone with the exact board you are thinking about and confirm it works with Vive wireless. I went with a Ryzen 2700x, Asus crosshair VII hero (non wireless) and it worked with 0 changes. Wireless adapter in the first 1x pcie port. Used 16GB gskill mem. Played about 20 different VR games and put in ~40 hours over several days of a few people playing. No issues, and it looks as good as wired. Really, it looks great. Drastic improvement. Tldr: Asus Crosshair VII, Ryzen 2700x works great with Vive wireless for me. Huge improvement in visual quality and performance updating from I5 3750 @4k. EDIT - spelling and minor typo and clarification fix.
