Hello I have a HP Spectre x360-13-ac0223 dx and a HP Omen Accelerator GA1- 10 Accelerator. I am running a nVidia 1070 card. I have little issue running the latest video games.
As I am sure you are aware in October nVidia released it's new architecture, the 2000 series RTX video cards. I am specifically looking to get a 2070. The issue is HP does not maintain a compatibility list for devices.
Is HP going to update the compatibility list for this device? Are there drivers to run 2070 cards available? Which cards? When will HP update the compatibility list. Competitors in this space (such as Akitio) have already updated their compatibility lists and released updated firmware.
As a loyal HP customer I expect HP to do the same. This housing is just over 18 months old. If anyone has any anecdotes of successfully running a 2070 card on the HP Omen Accelerator please share. Peace.
I may have an answer soon on this. I have convinced the gaming tech guys at my local Fry's to let me bring in my equiptment and test install a 2070 card. Now it simply a matter of me scheduling. I have volunteered to bring in my Omen Accelerator, ultrabook and test install a 2070 onsite. If we can get it to work I will buy it if not I will not buy the card.
