I want to purchase this cable to use it for Oculus Link which allows a Oculus Quest to run Oculus Rift games. They have requirements for USB C to USB C cables if you google Oculus Link Compatibility any chance you think this cable meets the requirements listed here as it needs to be USB 3.0 speeds? Thank you!

BEST ANSWER:Yes. This is the right cable. USB-C to USB-C.
It works okay, one of those i honestly expect better from Monoprice but they're one of the few with long(er than 6ft) USB C cables out there. The cable works fine, i'm concerned long term though as already i'm getting kinks in mine and feels like it's a stiffer wire than normal cables. I'm trying to coil it carefully but this cable is on a short lifespan I fear.
My 1950s home is outlet limited, and instead of purchasing an extension cord, I opted for a longer USB cable. The extra length increases resistance and slows charging in theory, but I haven't noticed in real world use, fast charging us still working, and I easily sleep longer then the 2 hours or so it takes to charge my phone (Pixel).
This cable appears to be heavy duty, it is heavy and fairly stiff, so it likely won't wear well in high bending environments. Such as the connector at phone, when resting phone on chest late at night while charging. We need 90 degree connector world!
