VR HMD (Vive/Oculus) as "headless" display. Will it work?
Since the VR HMD's connects the eGPU like a monitor, I wonder if it would be possible to make eGPU working without external monitor. I don't really need acceleration on internal display. It would be great if one could just plug the VR set to the box to get acceleration. That would really improve the portability of the rig.
OK. It Works! I've been able to test it and the eGPU works flawesly that way. No need to plug another monitor so I will be able to move my entire VR/eGPU rig in a single backpack.
Oh my god, what a huge backpack then... lol
Oh my god, what a huge backup then... lol
Kinda XDD But it's not as hard as it sounds since I have a 1070 mini eGPU in a small Akitio Thunder2 (instead of a big GPU card in a huge enclosure) and I'm about to change my HTC Vive for a Samsung Odyssey (which only have a cable connection to the egpu) so… It could be worst. 🙂
