Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Omen 17-cb1034nf
Rechargeable to about 50% in 45 minutes, it sports an original gamer design with its Celestial Black frame with a brushed sand finish with angular lines.
In terms of connectivity, this designer-oriented gaming computer will appeal to a maximum of users. There is indeed 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, practical HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, audio and Ethernet ports or 3 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if the ‘USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
A backlighting system is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for better discerning its keys in the dark.
The screen adopts a frequency of 144Hz which has the advantage of enhancing fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard. Something to seduce players but also creators since the screen adopts 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics thanks to which its colorimetry is more faithful than the average and its viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, are important. As it is adorned with a precise Full HD definition and a 16 / 9th format, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content, including videos. Anti-reflective coating, the screen is also more restful for the eyes in prolonged use than a shiny panel and offers better visibility in bright surroundings (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP Omen 17-cb1034nf
The HP Omen 17-cb1034nf may appeal to those looking for a versatile 17-inch laptop that is capable of gaming and creation-oriented.
It is able to support recent games as it is equipped with the dedicated GeForce RTX 2060 NVIDIA Turing graphics card with ray tracing.
In addition, under software that uses GPU computing power (eg Adobe Photoshop / Premiere, Sony Vegas), processing is accelerated thanks to the GeForce RTX 2060.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 2060 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by the onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor despite its very modest features because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. In this regard, expect about 3 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 2060 is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, both obviously allowing you to watch photos and videos.
Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, a good amount of 16 GB RAM and a Quad Core i5-10300H Comet Lake-H processor, the heart of this computer is able to satisfy a maximum of users. . It supports the RTX 2060 very well in games and delivers solid overall performance.
This duo guarantees, for example, faster processing than an 8 GB DDR4 processor and a low-power Quad Core processor, particularly in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or rendering. 3d.
Hybrid, the storage is up to the task, offering both a total capacity of 1.2 TB higher than average as well as great responsiveness. It consists of a 256 GB SSD intended to house the system as well as the main games / software, as well as a 1000 GB hard drive which can accommodate the rest.
