Creative oriented black gaming laptop PC, the HP Omen 15-ek1094nf benefits from a double SSD storage in RAID 0 for a 1TB of capacity and enhanced responsiveness in games. Equipped with a 15-inch Full HD anti-glare IPS screen whose frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity in games, this computer is able to run recent thanks to its high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card with ray tracing that accelerates the treatments just like the Hexa Core i7-10750H processor and the right amount of powerful 16GB RAM. This computer designed to play and create also benefits from a backlit chiclet keyboard as well as connectivity with Wi-Fi ax, USB-C and 2 video outputs.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Omen 15-ek1094nf
Rechargeable to 50% in 45 minutes, it has a rather discreet look for a gaming laptop PC with its celestial black aluminum design with a matte finish with angular lines.
This computer is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its Thunderbolt 3 USB-C, its 2 HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs, which are practical for connecting it easily to a TV or a monitor, for example, its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi wireless modules. Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its Ethernet and audio ports not to mention its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times more quickly than in USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 peripherals.
The chiclet keyboard is not equipped with a numeric keypad while its presence is standard in 15 inches, which may regret those who regularly enter numbers.
In any case, thanks to the 4-zone RGB system, you can backlight the chiclet keyboard to correctly discern its keys in the dark.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen displays colors more faithful than the average as well as important vertical and horizontal viewing angles. In addition, it is adorned with the frequency of 144Hz which reinforces the fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. In addition, rendering is improved in games thanks to G-Sync technology via lean synchronization with the graphics card. With its Full HD definition and 16: 9 format, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP Omen 15-ek1094nf
The HP Omen 15-ek1094nf targets those intending to invest in a versatile 15-inch laptop that is powerful in gaming and creation-oriented.
It stands out by the fact that it integrates a double SSD storage of 512 GB configured in RAID 0 for a large total capacity of 1 TB rivaling what hard disks offer.
As a reminder, an SSD is silent while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster game / software launches as well as start / stop and processing, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
The SSD goes well with the heart of this computer built around an Intel HM470 chipset, a good amount of 16 GB RAM and a Hexa Core i7-10750H Hexa Core processor.
The overall performance provided by this core is capable of satisfying demanding users, whether gamers or creators.
These components indeed support the dedicated graphics card embedded in games.
That said currently, the contribution of the Hexa Core in games is variable compared to the Quad Core.
In any case, this core guarantees much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources using multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or rendering. 3d.
Processing is also accelerated by the dedicated high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 integrated graphics card with ray tracing, here in Max-Q edition . This is for example the case with Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas.
Gamers will also be interested in dealing with the GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q as it is capable of supporting recent games at a good level of detail.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
To promote battery life as much as possible, Optimus makes maximum use of the Intel UHD 630 solution housed within the Hexa Core i7.
Count on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use in terms of battery life.
The GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q is in practice called upon by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, especially for gaming. With either of these graphics solutions, viewing photos and videos is of course possible.
Finally, we must expect that this portable PC to play and create heats up and is heard when it is strongly pushed (eg games, treatments).
