Late 2019 HP Spectre x360, Core i7-1065G7, Iris plus graphics, 16GB-3733MHz RAM, 512GB SSD + Optane, 4k OLED display. Exact config here
Razer Core X Chroma - Standard TB3 cable
MSI RTX 2070 Super
Also tried AMD R9 Fury Nano
Started with the Core X and a R9 Fury. Plugged in, installed drivers, worked right off the bat. I updated to a XFX AMD Radeon 5700 XT here which was PHYSICALLY too big for the core x. Returned for MSI version here but failed to get it running. No drivers would work or make it switch, constant code 12. Tried DDU and everything else I could think of along with a custom driver. No dice. Returned THAT for finally went with what I should have to begin with, a MSI 2070 Super. here Once that was installed and drivers updated it was good to go and running great!
I'm running this on an external monitor (2560x1080) here and the laptop is sitting on a cooling/fan pad in case things start to heat up. So far everything has stayed super cool, but that could change come summertime.
Long story short, avoid AMD with this laptop. Overall very happy with the end result!
