Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Omen 15-en0004nf
It is an original and relatively discreet gaming design that sports this gaming laptop with its angular lines, its black color and its contained weight.
It is cooled by 2 fans, heat pipes and vents found on the sides, back and below.
In terms of connectivity, this laptop PC for players and creators is well equipped with its USB-C, its Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely without – wire, its practical HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs 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) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Numeric keypad point on the right while it is a standard in 15 inches, which may put off some.
Fortunately, the chiclet keyboard is adorned all the same with a backlighting system for the keys, here of the 4-zone RGB type, so that we can correctly discern in the dark.
Thanks to its frequency of 144Hz, the screen improves fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. It also has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles while offering more faithful than average colorimetry with its IPS technology. The screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the HP Omen 15-en0004nf
The HP Omen 15-en0004nf targets those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch High Definition laptop PC with performance oriented gamers and creators.
As it embeds the dedicated NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 2060 graphics card with ray tracing, this gaming laptop is capable of running recent games.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 2060 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time, depending on the tasks performed.
The Radeon Vega 7 solution integrated into the processor is preferred to the maximum despite its modest features because it is energy efficient and thus promotes battery life. The GeForce RTX 2060 is therefore activated by to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Vega 7. With either one, we can of course watch photos and videos.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 2060 speeds up processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, which will interest creative people.
They will also be delighted to get very fast processing thanks to the heart of this black computer, because it is built around an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 4800H Octo Core Renoir processor and a good amount of memory. live 16 GB.
Thanks to these components, the difference in processing is all the more important in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources and take advantage of multi-core, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
In fact the overall power that this laptop delivers is able to satisfy demanding users, whether gamers or creators.
And all the more so as the storage is up to the task. It is entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1TB that rivals hard drives while being silent, more shock resistant, more energy efficient and much faster.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we reach for example faster on the cards of online games than with a simple hard disk and we take advantage of games / software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster.
Finally, with regard to the battery life of this portable gaming PC at the contained weight, expect about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
Keep in mind that if its temperatures are controlled for this type of computer, it is noisy under heavy loads (eg: games, treatments).
