The drivers for the Rift need direct access to the GPU via HDMI.
    There is no contention that the G751 does not have Optimus, it was very prominently advertised on release that this was the case... though looking at the current material for the G751 does not make this clear at all, about the only thing that indicates it doesn't have Optimise is the lack of advertising the feature.

    This is a feature and not something missing. If you have optimus your laptop screen is capped to 60hz, as well the technology isn't widely known for being reliable. Many gamers despise Optimus so it was removed here.

    All G-sync capable laptops do not have Optimus, the technologies in their current incarnations are not compatible.

    Navis955's comment was not refuting that their is no Optimus in G751s, but rather his point was that most other Asus laptops do have Optimus.

    Reading it again and it is a bit more clearer what he ment :-)
