Can this laptop move well elite with VR with Oculus Rift S?

Hi commanders, I need your help!

I Want to buy Oculus Rift S to play Elite in VR but im not sure if its going to work well in a laptop because they are always weaker than a desktop and i need an expert opinion :D
Check compatibility with Oculus software and everything came out positive, I said they were fully compatible with my computer, but I don't know if it worked well in a demanding game like elite.

Here my Laptop specification:
Laptop MSI
-Windows 10: 64 bits
-Processor: Inter Core i7-7700HQ 2,8 GHz 8 CPUs
-Graphics: GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
-RAM : 16GB

What do you think??

Thank you so much!!
 
Before upgrading my desktop, I was happily running a Rift CV1 on an i5 4670k & GTX 1060 6Gb - HMD & SS at 1.0 and other settings varying along Medium/High. Although I’ve since upgraded, I didn’t experience any performance drop between CV1 and the S, the lower frame rate helped compensate for the increased resolution.

I think your laptop should be okay with the Rift S though you’ll probably be dropping into ASW at busy times in the game. Keeping graphics settings towards the lower end of the spectrum while maintaining the default resolution and you should be good to go.

Also, double check your ports and USB are compatible with the Rift S :)
 
I initially played Elite on an Alienware 17r4 with identical specs and an Oculus CV1. It'll work, but you'll be running relatively low settings on everything. I first tried upgrading to a GTX 1080 in the Alienware graphics amplifier, but I was really disappointed by the relative lack of performance increase due to the latency of an external card, ended up building a new desktop setup instead with a 2080ti. Now I just need to upgrade the headset.
 
Thanks all for your time and help.

Seeing your comments I think that maybe its not worth buy 450€ in VR to play in minimun and with high possibilities to have a bad experience. I have to buy a improve desktop and then i ll try it.

See you in the space without VR :cry:
 
Yeah, I have a desktop 7700k and a 1660ti which are considerably faster than the laptop parts you're listing. My setup is fun with medium settings and no super sampling, but it's always in ASW (which is the half frame rate reprojection) because it can't run the solid 80fps.
I think you won't be able to get the settings low enough to even be stable in ASW with that laptop. Your GPU will sag, snowballing the already high CPU usage.
Very demanding game.
