Upgrading the Rtx graphics cards

HP Recommended
HP Omen 17-cb0
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am wanting to upgrade from the rtx2060, to the rtx2080 and I don't know if this is possible or if I am stuck with what I have. Have tried looking around and never got a clear answer before

No, you can't swap the video card. You have to buy a whole System board if available. There are 2 System boards which have RTX 2080 for the series:


  • Intel Core i9-9880H processor and 8 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce RTX 2080; G-Sync) part # L59778-601
  • Intel Core i7-9750H processor and 8 GB of discrete graphics memory (GeForce RTX 2080; G-Sync) part # L59777-601

Parts are N/A from HP part store. You have to source other online stores or eBay.


Note: You have to pay for


   (a) New Motherboard,

   (b) CPU with integrated video,

   (c) New Dedicated Video card,

   (d) Operating system (you can't reuse old license).

All above 4 components are on one piece of hardware called System board.
