Omen 15 no Gsync

15-ax206ng
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I just bought an Omen 15-ax206ng Laptop, which was advertised with GSync.

But the integrated display is only connected with the Intel HD chipset, thous making it impossible to see that display in the Nvidia settings. I couldn't find settings in the BIOS to change that.

 

Cann anyone from HP confirm that this Laptop has Gsync and how can I activate it?

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

The following link shows specs of your computer

Your machine meets all requirents for G-SYNC but I can't see from the above specs. Please read the following instruction how to turn on:

where exactly did you see the omen 15 being advertised as with g-sync?

 

the omen 15 has no g-sync IMO.

on the main omen page (for the omen brand, not individual models), it clearly says "g-sync on select models".

 

going further to the individual models, only the omen 17 with gtx 1070 (W6S63AV_1) is advertised as with g-sync. so not even all omen 17s are, and no omen 15 at all is advertised as with g-sync, which complies with the above statement "on select models".

Thanks for the replies.

 

It was advertised with Gsync on Amazon.  

 

https://www.amazon.de/HP-15-ax206ng-Notebook-i7-7700HQ-Carbon-Optik/dp/B01MTEWYUX/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_pr...

 

Scroll down, on the second model comparison line it clearly says that it has Gsync. Also in the first feature line up.

 

If it has no Gsync, then I have to contact Amazon for false advertisment and maybe I will give it back, though I like it so far.

 

Thanks guys!

ok, there it really is being advertised as featuring g-sync.

would be interesting to hear what amazon says.

 

have you updated the bios to the latest version? and of course the geforce driver (best from the official nvidia website, not from hp)

 

though even on the official nvidia g-sync system requirements page there is no mention of the display needing to support g-sync as well, i would still suspect the display being the reason for it not to work, as unfortunately the 1080p display of the omen 15 is just bad, so maybe it doesnt. if youre interested in replacing the display, heres my thread on this topic as i am about to receive my omen 15 (7700hq, 1080p, gtx 1050ti) soon as well: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/compatible-replacement-displays-for-20...
