Firmware update tool
Download all 3 files into the same location and follow the "update tool steps.pdf" for instructions. During the update, please remove all video outputs but Accell adapter from your desktop. Your monitor should be connected to Accell adapter which plugs into the USB-C port on your GPU.
Will this adapter work with VR headsets other than Oculus Rift?
This adapter is tested and certified to work with Oculus Rift. Other VR headsets may be compatible if having similar requirement but the configuration is not guaranteed to function properly.
Will this adapter work with Oculus Rift S?
The Oculus Rift S uses Displayport for video output, thus this adapter will not work with Oculus Rift S.
Why does it show the VR headset connected as a USB 2.1 device when I plug my VR headset into this adapter?
The ACCELL VR Adapter can support up to USB 3.0 throughput but does not amplify or improve the throughput from the attached peripheral devices. The connection you see is the VR headset connection speed and is not determined by the adapter.
