Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Can a laptop with a GTX 1050ti run Windows Mixed Reality?

The title exactly says the question, you see, I want to know this because recently I have bought an Oculus Rift, and it did not work because the USB in my Oculus Rift was malfunctioning and I couldn't use it, then the moderators told me that Oculus Rift does not run on most GTX 1050ti laptops.
Is it possible for me to run Windows Mixed Reality?

  • it should work ok. I got it working on a GTX960M but some games were slow. On a GTX1060 it works great so I think 1050ti would be fine

    Alright but you see I am so so scared that it won’t work because the Oculus Rift did not work at all.
    Besides I have another question, I had an HDMI problem with the oculus rift as well, and that is what i’m scared of, does the oculus rift connect to the Nvidia port from the HDMI or for the Intel core?

  • I have a Dell XPS 15 9570 that come with Intel UHD Graphics 630 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
    I am able to use the Acer WMR headset without any issues.
