Alienware Graphics Amplifier

Alienware Graphics Amplifier enables you to connect an external graphics card to your computer.

When using the Virtual Reality (VR) headset, connect the HDMI cable to the graphics card installed on your Alienware Graphics Amplifier. The USB cables from the VR headset can be connected either to your computer or your Alienware Graphics Amplifier.

NOTE: The USB dongle is not required, if you are connecting the USB 3.0 cables on your VR headset to the USB 3.0 Type-A port on your Alienware Graphics Amplifier.
