HP has announced its 2020 gaming laptop refresh and a host of new gaming accessories.
Again, the company brings a radical redesign for the HP Omen 15.
The upper mid-range gaming laptop now has a sleek, simplified logo, as HP is moving away from the tribal mask Omen logo from back in the VoodooPC era.
According to the company, it made the move to help the HP Omen 15 catch the eye of those who want a multifunctional laptop, for both work and gaming.
The 15.6-inch display with slim bezels is available as OLED, UHD, or in FHD at 300 Hz and is fitted with a 180-degree flat hinge.
As for what’s new under the hood, the HP Omen 15 can be fitted with an i5-10300H, i7-10750H or a Ryzen 7 4800H processor, paired with up to 32 GB of RAM and up to a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics card.
All of this is joined by an industry first in terms of cooling. The Omen 15 is the first gaming laptop to use a thermopile sensor “to optimize thermal efficiencies, maintain steady yet quiet fan acoustic control, and maximize performance from the Dynamic Power feature within the Omen Command Center”.
According to HP, this feature will bring the Omen 15 to almost “desktop-level CPU performance”.
You will find 3 USB Type-A ports, a USB Type-C with DisplayPort 1.4, SD card reader, HDMI 2.0a, Mini-Display Port and a RJ-45 port alongside the 3.5 mm combo audio jack.
The new HP Omen 15 2020 gaming laptop is a bit heavier than last year’s model, weighing 2.47 kg whereas the previous iteration came in at 2.38 kg.
The new HP Omen 15 will be available this June on HP’s website and at retailers, starting at around $1,000.
