Game and creation oriented, the HP Omen 15-en1005nf is a black QHD High Definition screen gaming laptop with 165Hz frequency to improve smoothness in games and more faithful color reproduction than the DCI-P3 average to appeal to creators. This versatile laptop is powerful thanks to its 16 GB of RAM and its AMD Octo Core Ryzen 7 Cezanne processor that accelerates processing like the high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 ray tracing graphics card capable of running games. recent. Designed to play and create, this black multimedia laptop PC for creatives and gamers also benefits from fast SSD storage which reinforces its responsiveness (but of limited capacity), a backlit chiclet keyboard or even connectivity with Wi-Fi. Fi ax, dual video output and USB-C.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Omen 15-en1005nf
It adopts the gamer codes with its black color and its angular lines, its overall look, however, remaining relatively discreet for a PC of this type.
This versatile laptop for gamers and creators integrates good connectivity with its wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its HDMI video outputs and practical mini-DisplayPort for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports, its USB-C without forgetting its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
We can obviously backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard which is practical to better discern them in the dark.
The screen will appeal to both gamers and creators with its refresh rate of 165Hz higher than the 60Hz standard as well as its reduced latency to 3ms which enhances fluidity in games. In addition, thanks to its 100% DCI-P3 and IPS characteristics, the screen displays colors more faithful than the average with important viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. As a bonus it adopts a QHD definition higher than Full HD and therefore well suited to (Very) High Definition content such as videos due to its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the HP Omen 15-en1005nf
The HP Omen 15-en1005nf may be of interest to those who wish to acquire a versatile 15-inch laptop PC performing in games and creation and oriented High Definition;
The overall power it provides is able to satisfy demanding users because it integrates 16 GB of RAM associated with an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne Octo Core processor.
Creatives will particularly appreciate this core because it provides much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor. The difference is particularly noticeable under work requiring RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, such as 3D rendering, video editing or photo editing.
In addition, multimedia processing is accelerated under software using GPU computing power (eg Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, Sony Vegas), by the dedicated GeForce RTX 3070 onboard graphics card.
High-end NVIDIA Ampere GPU with ray tracing, the GeForce RTX 3070 primarily targets gamers because it is capable of running recent games.
In fact, NVIDIA Optimus technology assesses graphics needs in real time according to the tasks performed and activates the GeForce RTX 3070 when necessary. This GPU is in fact requested when the more modest services of the AMD Radeon Vega 8 solution (more powerful than the ‘Intel UHD 630, equivalent to an entry-level GPU) integrated into the Octo Core AMD prove to be insufficient to perform the required tasks.
Of course, whether with the GeForce RTX 3070 or the Radeon Vega 8, you can watch photos and videos. But the Vega 8 is preferred to the maximum by Optimus because it is energy efficient which promotes battery life.
In this regard, bet on about 6 hours on battery in light use.
The SSD storage clearly reinforces the fluidity and responsiveness to use compared to a simple hard drive. Because an SSD is silent while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and much faster than a hard drive.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, for example, we get faster on online game cards than with a simple hard drive, and we take advantage of much faster game / software launches, processing and starts / stops.
That being said here the capacity of the SSD is limited to 512 GB, which corresponds to the standard among hard disks. However, if you need additional space, you can always rely on an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally when it is strongly pushed (eg games, processing), this designer-oriented gamer laptop designed to play and create is heard and heated.
