It has been discovered that the Display Ports on Nvidia GTX 1080/70 GPUs don't work with HTC Vive, despite the fact that they did work on Nvidia's previous generation hardware. 

Reports of this incompatibility come from Tom's Hardware, who have tested this for themselves after reading reports of this issue on the Nvidia Geforce Forums. This is hugely disappointing as Nvidia's GTX 1000 series GPUs are heavily marketed towards VR users, leaving many consumers simply to assume that adapting from DisplayPort to HDMI works.   

Nvidia has so far been quiet on this issue, simply stating that they "are still investigating this issue" over a month ago with no fix in sight. At this time we do not know if Nvidia is currently working on a fix for this issue in an upcoming driver update.

Right now if you hook in your HTC Vive into your GTX 1080/70 GPUs using DisplayPort you will simply get an HMD not found error, preventing VR users from playing their games. 

While the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 do have a single HDMI 2.0 connection on their reference design it must be noted that a lot of gamers already use this connection to connect to monitors, TVs or other displays, making the fact that they cannot connect to their VR HMD through DisplayPort an annoying issue, especially when it was possible on GTX 900 series GPUs.

I have a vive and a 1080 and to get it to work I just connect the monitor's HDMI to the graphics cards DVI port using a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect the Vive to the HDMI port on the graphics card, job done, never need to use the display ports!Quote

Why? MOST monitors come with a dvi / hdmi port on them, so while not the ideal solution it is much better than not being able to use your VR hardware. Sides the adapters are like 10 bucks or so on amazon lol...cheap enough to do that rather than wait on nvidia to actually fix it months down the road.Quote
