    Maybe 7th gen is not available in all regions at launch.

    I noticed when trying to build one of the new 7820k models, it gives a message that the processor is not compatible with the "Gsync Capable LCD Selected" (although no other options are provided). I assume that's an error, but can anyone confirm?

    I assume the gsync display you have selected is the 120hz TN because there is now also a 60hz IPS.

    I'm getting the same error on the AU site with the following comments:

    However - any of the display selections still provide the same error.
    The only way I've found to remove this error is to remove the 1080 and select the 1070. Any selection with the 1080 pops the compatibility error. Popped into live chat to ask and was told it was due to 1080 stock shortages... er...
    _________________
    Errors
    • The selection - Intel® Core™ i7-7820HK (Quad-Core, 8MB Cache, Overclocking up to 4.4GHz ) is incompatible with LCD
    • The Processor selected is not compatible with the LCD Display selected. Please use the links provided to modify your selection.

    I just got a my AW15 R3 replaced. They upgraded my cpu to 7820HK, and the monitor to a 120Hz. I'm receiving it in 3 weeks time. This probably means that the error is probably just on the website.

    Nope, the 1070.

    Cool. I can place the same order for the 1070 but when I try to select the 1080 I can't add to card (in any configuration) - hence the message above. Agree though, looks like a website error to me - although sales rep stated it was a stock availability issue.

    EDIT: Looks like the 1080 is no longer an option that I can view/select anymore. Has been removed.

    The CPU supports it but I don't think the motherboard does (at least I've not seen anything indicating it would). So my guess would be no.
