USB 3.0 Hub
« on: 06:05 AM - 02/05/18 »
I noticed that "All USB 3 hubs cannot be used with XIM4"

Now does this mean that it just won't work at all or that you won't just get the 3.0 speed and only 2.0 speed?

I have a CouchMaster Cycon that has a USB 3.0 hub inside it, all of the ports are 3.0. I have my mouse, keyboard and controller connected into it and works perfectly no problem.

It's not designed to be used with 3.0 hubs. You may be able to use it but you may also have stability issues when using it. If you do then I recommend using a 2.0 hub instead.

Ah I see! Well luckily it works perfect lol. Will Apex have USB 3.0 support?

I actually don't remember if it does or not. Hopefully Obsiv can answer this one.

I've used Apex with USB 3.0 hubs and it works fine.

That said, all mice, keyboards, microphones, heasdsets, controllers and joysticks are USB 2.0 devices, so there's no clad-iron guarantee that any given 3.0 hub won't have issues.

USB 3.0 is backwards-compatible, so most hubs will be ok, as long as you don't have a bandwidth-hungry USB 3.0 video capture card or HDD sitting on the same hub.
