Following its new wave of gamer releases, HP today unveiled the new version of its OMEN 15, bringing the new generation of Intel processors, in addition to offering options equipped with AMD's Ryzen 4000 chips. Another highlight is the redesign of the line, which now arrives with a much more sober and thin look when compared to its predecessor.
Models with Intel CPUs can be configured with a Core i5 10300H or Core i7 10750H and feature a 15.6 "screen with Full HD (IPS LCD) or 4K (AMOLED) resolutions and refresh rates of 120Hz, 144Hz and 300Hz, up to 32GB of 2933MHz DDR4 RAM, Nvidia GTX 1650, RTX 2060 or RTX 2070 SUPER Max-Q GPUs, up to 1TB of SSD M.2 NVMe storage, two speakers with Bang & Olufsen optimizations, 70.9Wh battery and power supply 200W.
Much of the settings remain similar on models with AMD chips, but some major changes have been made. There are options with Ryzen 5 4600H and Ryzen 7 4800H, and the RAM memory here only reaches 16GB, although faster with clocks of 3200MHz. There is also only one screen option, with Full HD resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. Finally, on GPUs we have Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650Ti, GTX 1660Ti and RTX 2060 cards.
Both versions are compatible with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5, and come with similar port configurations, with SD card reader, USB-C (Thunderbolt 3 in Intel configuration), three USB-A, RJ-45 Ethernet, P2 connector for headphones and microphone, Mini DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0a. There is also one-zone RGB, four-zone or key illumination and Windows 10 Home.
Accompanying the new laptop, HP also announced the Vector and Vector Essential mice, and the Dyad headset. The peripherals have OMEN Radar 3 sensors of 16,000 DPI and OMEN Radar 1 of 7,200 DPI, respectively, with right-handed design, polling rate of 1ms, RGB lighting and six programmable buttons.
The headphones have P2 connection, official compatibility with PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, 10mm drivers and 20 ohms impedance. The new OMEN 15 is now available for purchase, with prices between US $ 900 and US $ 1,499 (approx. R $ 4,700 to R $ 7,832), with OMEN Vector coming later this month for US $ 50 (about R $ 261) and Vector Essential at July for $ 30 (about R $ 157). OMEN Dyad does not have a release date yet, but is already listed in the official HP store for $ 50.
Even today, HP announced its new version of the Pavilion Gaming 16, a cheaper gaming notebook than its brothers in the OMEN line. The device proves to be an interesting option, offering Core i7 of 10th generation and RTX 2060 Max-Q for prices starting at around US $ 800 (about R $ 4,177). The company also unveiled, last week, its Reverb G2, Virtual Reality glasses compatible with SteamVR and Windows Mixed Reality.
