Hi everybody.


When I started with a PC 1992 I had an Intel 486, then a Pentium. Don't know exactly when I turned towards AMD processors but it didn't take very long.


Right now I have a FX-8320 and I bought a wireless adapter for my HTC Vive (the original one, no Pro or even larger). I found out that the 8320 is too weak to run it. Smaller games are OK but Paranormal Activity isn't good to play already.


I decided to buy a new CPU and leaned towards Ryzen 5-3600. But I found that there are problems with Ryxzen processors and the wireless adapter (esp. the PCIe-card from Intel, you have to install in your PC). This was stated in 2018. You will find lots of articles about that in the net.


Then I read that the new 3xxx Ryzens didn't have that problem. The support people at HTC say that the problems still exist due to 'some' chipsets for AM4-sockets and the recommend to buy a Intel CPU instead.


I don't want to spend more money for less performance. anybody here using a Ryzen CPU with the HTC Vive wireless adapter and is satisfied? If so, may I ask your combination? :-)


Thanks, I hope somebody can point me to a working mainboard. I really don't want to go back to Intel processors
