Performing in games, the new versatile black HP Omen 17-cb1064nf laptop takes advantage of the NVIDIA Turing GeForce RTX 2070 Super high-end ray tracing graphics card which also accelerates multimedia processing as well as the powerful core combining a Hexa Core i7 processor Comet Lake-H has a good amount of RAM. It also benefits from a 17 inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen with 144Hz frequency to improve fluidity in games, and its responsiveness is reinforced by its fast 1TB SSD storage. Backlit chiclet keyboard and USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt connectors 3, Wi-Fi ax and dual video output are also on the program of this computer.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Omen 17-cb1064nf
It sports a clearly gamer and nevertheless original design with its Celestial Black chassis, sanded brushed finish with angular lines. It can be recharged to around 50% in 45 minutes.
This designer-oriented gaming computer has good connectivity consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, ds Bluetooth 5.0 modules and Wi-Fi ax ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect to wireless distance, practical HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, audio and Ethernet ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit, which is practical to better discern its keys in the dark.
The screen is particularly aimed at players with its refresh rate of 144Hz which reinforces reactivity compared to the standard 60Hz. It lends itself well to displaying High Definition content and in particular videos due to its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 format. As it adopts 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics, the screen offers more faithful colorimetry than the average and has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Omen 17-cb1064nf
The HP Omen 17-cb1064nf may appeal to those who have a very comfortable budget and want to invest in a versatile 17-inch laptop PC powerful in games and creative oriented.
With its dedicated NVIDIA Turing high-end GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics card with ray-tracing, this computer is capable of running the most recent games at a good level of detail.
Depending on the tasks performed, the NVIDIA Optimus on-board technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 2070 Super and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor.
Optimus makes this PC work on the Intel UHD 630 as much as possible despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy.
In the matter pending more concrete tests, expect about 3 hours of battery operation in light use.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super is activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630, both of course allowing you to view photos and videos.
In addition, under software exploiting GPU computing power, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super can be used to speed up processing. This is particularly the case with Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas.
Responsiveness is an essential parameter in games. And it is at the rendezvous of this PC thanks in particular to the fact that it benefits from SSD storage, with a large capacity of 1 TB. It rivals hard disks in this area while being silent, more energy efficient, more robust and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, the fluidity and reactivity of this computer is more important than with a hard drive. With the SSD, we can, for example, get faster on online game cards but also benefit from much faster game / software launches, starts / stops and processing.
Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor and a good amount of 16 GB of RAM, the heart of this gaming computer supports the RTX 2070 Super well in games . It actually delivers a global power capable of satisfying demanding users.
This duo guarantees processing much faster than a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4 in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of multicores, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
Finally, keep in mind that this laptop can be heard and heats up in the event of heavy loads (eg games, treatments). We can for example use a ventilated support ( remember to check the dimensions! ) To contain the temperatures.
