TL;DW: Old KVM back in stock, new KVM with USB-C, and USB-IF needs to get their shit together with allowed and certified naming on cables

Competing KVMs only have USB 1.1

So, the fancy Corsair keyboards don’t work on USB 1.1? Why?

They are not hid devices. They have a “bios mode” that would probably work (hid emulation, which is not a 1.1 fallback) but are not otherwise hid compatible.

I know that from the video, but what does that have to do with USB 1.1?

Usb1.1 doesn’t support much beyond hid devices. Usb2.0 can fall back to 1.1 in some scenarios but the corsiar keyboard might as well be a USB printer for all the USB controller knows?

@wendell

Any insight as to how the USB-C KVM will work with an X399 Taichi board? Looking to start dividing work between my laptop and a workstation for better number crunching.

You need dp+USBc so if you are using an rtx card it’s fine. Taichi doesn’t have a dp input

Crap. Really wanted to stick with a Quadro but Falcon doesn’t offer anything above Pascal yet. I’ll see if I can talk to IT about that.

Thanks for the super fast reply!
