A:AnswerIt could be due to the panel technology (screen), I really don't know. But I will tell you this. I got mine 3 days ago and IT RIPS!!! It plays most AAA games on the highest settings with no problem. Even 89+FPS with ray tracing enabled.
Only when I cranked it up to 3440×1440 (external monitor) with max settings and ray tracing did it drop below a 60fps average in Tomb Raider. I'm hoping that an upgrade to 32gb from 15gb ram will rectify that "problem" lol ;-)
I actually got mine on sale for $1,800 and let me tell you it was one of the best purchases I've made in a long time! :-)
A:AnswerOther poster is wrong, the refresh is 144Hz Try to configure an RTX 2080 on HP's site and see that it will give you an error saying that a 60Hz screen cannot be matched with the RTX 2080 per their configurations.
