Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Omen 16-c0037nf
With its design with angular lines, it sports a relatively discreet gamer allure.
This designer-oriented gaming laptop PC with low weight is equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB-C, HDMI video outputs and practical mini-DisplayPort for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Bluetooth wireless modules 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, Ethernet and audio ports or 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.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit, which is very practical for better discerning its keys in the dark.
Players will particularly appreciate the screen because it adopts a latency limited to 3ms as well as a frequency of 165Hz higher than the 60Hz standard which reinforces the fluidity in the games. Creators, for their part, will appreciate the 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics because they imply a more faithful than average colorimetry as well as important viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos. In addition, it is anti-reflective treated and thus offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP Omen 16-c0037nf
The HP Omen 16-c0037nf may be of interest to those on a comfortable budget and planning to invest in a versatile 15-inch laptop that performs well in gaming and creation.
The most recent and greedy games can run on this creator-oriented gamer laptop PC because it embeds the GeForce RTX 3070 ray tracing, a dedicated high-end NVIDIA Ampere graphics card.
The players will therefore be interested but also the creators since this GPU accelerates the processing under software taking advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3070 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology according to the tasks performed.
Optimus prefers the Radeon Vega 8 as much as possible, a graphics solution integrated into the processor and yet much more modest because it consumes little energy which favors battery life.
In this area, expect about 6 hours on battery in light use.
The Radeon Vega 8 is more precisely housed within the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Cezanne Octo Core processor, here associated with 16 GB of RAM to deliver overall power capable of satisfying demanding users.
This core supports the GeForce RTX 3070 well in games and in particular guarantees much faster processing than a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas that are greedy in CPU and RAM resources using multicore, like in video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
The storage is up to the task, entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB rivaling what hard drives offer in this area while being silent, more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient or even much faster. .
In practice, the SSD guarantees, for example, a faster arrival on the cards of online games than a hard disk, or even faster games / software launches, processing and starts / stops.
Finally, it should be kept in mind that in the event of strong demands (eg games, processing), this designer-oriented multimedia gamer laptop heats up and is heard.
