Multimedia, the new versatile HP Omen 15-en0045nf laptop with 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-reflective screen delivers solid performance with its AMD Ryzen 5 HexaCore Renoir processor and its good amount of RAM which speed up processing. These are reinforced by fast SSD storage which improves responsiveness and by the dedicated NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1660 Ti card which is also capable of running as many games as possible. Backlit chiclet keyboard and Wi-Fi ax and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity are also on the agenda for this gamer and designer PC.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Omen 15-en0045nf
It sports a relatively sober design for one for a gamer-oriented laptop whose codes it takes up with its angular lines and black color.
Connectivity side, this PC is well equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its outputs Convenient HDMI video and mini DisplayPort for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, its Ethernet and audio ports as well as its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard of course benefits from a very practical backlighting system for the keys to correctly distinguish them in dim light.
The screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content and in particular videos due to its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective treatment, the screen offers better visibility than a bright panel in a bright environment (eg outside). Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Its colorimetry is however average, lower than that of higher-end IPS panels.
Performance, battery life of the HP Omen 15-en0045nf
The HP Omen 15-en0045nf is a high-performance 15-inch high-definition laptop designed for versatile use, oriented towards play and creation.
It delivers solid general performance capable of satisfying many users because it is built around a good amount of 16 GB RAM and an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Hexa Core Ryzen 5 4600H Renoir processor.
The contribution of the latter in games is variable compared to a Quad Core.
This in any case guarantees processing much faster than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor in areas that consume RAM and CPU resources using the multicore architecture, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
Creatives will therefore be interested in this PC, especially since it benefits from a dedicated GeForce GTX 1660 Ti NVIDIA Turing graphics card which can be used by software taking advantage of GPU computing power to speed up processing. This is for example the case with Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas.
In addition, thanks to the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, this computer can run a maximum of games as long as we consent to settings under the titles that require the most graphics resources to obtain good playability.
Obviously, no problem to watch photos and videos on this PC which benefits from a reactivity reinforced by its SSD storage. Compared to a hard drive, remember that an SSD is much faster while being less energy-consuming, more robust and quieter.
In practice, the SSD guarantees better fluidity on a daily basis than a hard drive. This is reflected in particular by faster game / software launches, starts / stops and processing, but also by a faster arrival on online game cards.
Here, we find integrated a 512 GB SSD, a capacity that rivals hard disks certainly but may be too fair for some.
Those who need additional space will be able to turn to an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer oriented gamer and creator, pending concrete tests, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
In any case, expect noise and heat during heavy loads (eg games, treatments).
