The basic adapter works with both the Vive and the Vive Pro, although the Vive Pro requires an additional $60 compatibility package that includes a Vive Pro connection cable, foam padding, and a fastener device that works with the Vive Pro.
The Vive Wireless Adapter is sold for $299.
According to the blog post, the installation works as follows:
“The Vive Wireless Adapter installs in minutes by installing a PCI-e map and connecting a sensor from the PC that sends to and from the new Vive Wireless Headset. The adapter has a transmission range of 6 meters with a field of view of 150 degrees from the sensor and runs in the interference-free 60GHz band according to Intel’s WiGig specification, which in combination with DisplayLink’s XR codex means low latency and high performance with hours of battery life.”
