Usability of the Virtuallink USB C Port on RTX 20 Series graphics cards as a USB hub.

Just wondering if anyone here has had any experience with using the virtual link USB-C port included in some 20- Series RTX cards as a host for a USB Hub to run peripherals such as keyboard and mouse, and if they have experienced any latency or USB device disconnection issues when doing so.

I did use that for a while to connect an external ssd as well as an oculus quest and I haven’t faced any problems at all as opposed to the usb hub built into the enclosure where I ran into random disconnects under heavy gpu loads.

You are brilliant.

Thank you.
