Update on Vive Wireless Adpater


Recommended Posts

We have seen and are actively looking into multiple reports of Ryzen incompatibility with Vive Wireless Adapter. Our current data shows this is occurring with a subset of Ryzen-based PCs. Our investigation will take time as we are working with multiple component manufacturers to identify the root cause.


We will update the community as we learn more.


In the near term, we are updating our specifications to show that certain Ryzen PCs have a compatibility issue.

In addition, starting, 11/19, our customer service agents will honor Ryzen-related returns from our retail partners and vive.com outside of typical return windows. Please see instructions below.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to investigate the issue.

Customer Return Process

For refund eligibility and processing please get in touch with our Customer Support team by emailing vive_care@vive.com. You will get a response with instructions and next steps within one business day.  To ensure proper processing we will request the following:

  • Proof of Purchase (your vive.com order number or your retailer invoice)
  • Validation of AMD equipment (our CSR reps will walk you through the steps for these requirements)

Once the validation step is complete we will provide you with a shipping label with instructions to return your wireless adapter. Once the unit is confirmed received we will process the refund and notify customers of the completed process.

After reinstalled my Windows, updated graphics driver (geforce driver 416.94), and installed the software in this order:

  1. Vive setup (found on vive website, download button next to support tab up top).
  2. Steam.
  3. Vive wireless app.
  4. Uninstalled Viveport.

Also updated to the latest SteamVR Beta  (1.1.1), I haven't had any BSOD or hard crash, which occured every 5-10 minutes before. This is only one session, need more testing.

Here's my specs:

  • Ryzen 7 2700x @4.02GHz
  • Asus Prime X470 Pro
  • 32GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro @3266Mhz 15-17-17-30
  • EVGA GTX 1080Ti SC2 Hybrid +80Mhz core +400 vram
  • Boot from Samsung M.2 NVME
