HP Omen 16-k0005nf against the competition
HP Omen 16-k0005nf is currently displayed promotion in the house of Darty and Fnac. It is positioned as one of the only ones in its category that offers such a significant amount of RAM with such a new processor with such a large number of cores and such a high-performance graphics card, but also such a high-resolution screen and such faithful colors.
If this HP Omen 16-k0005nf does not meet all your criteria, you will find other configurations for gaming with a similar budget in our guide to gaming laptops. For the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, it will have the biggest impact on performance.
Chassis, connector, screen on HP Omen 16-k0005nf
It has a relatively sober gamer look with its black design with angular lines.
50% rechargeable in 45 minutes, this creative gaming laptop has good connectivity options, including 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect externally, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, e.g. Ethernet and audio ports or 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantee transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected.
You can of course backlit the keys on the chiclet keyboard, which is handy to better distinguish them in the dark.
Thanks to its 165Hz frequency, which is higher than the 60Hz standard, the screen improves fluidity in games, which gamers will appreciate. Creators will appreciate that the screen reproduces colors more faithfully than average with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles because it uses sRGB and IPS specifications. As a bonus, the screen lends itself well to viewing High Definition content such as videos because it is adorned with a 2.5K definition higher than the Full HD associated with a 16:9 format. Anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a blank panel.
Performance, autonomy for HP Omen 16-k0005nf
The HP Omen 16-k0005nf is aimed at those who have a big budget and want to get a versatile multimedia laptop that is powerful for gaming and creation.
Whether the Iris Xe graphics module is integrated into the processor or the dedicated GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, you can view photos and videos on this creative gaming laptop, but also play light titles.
It turns out that the NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and the Intel Iris Xe, with the latter being favored as much as possible to ensure the best possible autonomy because it is energy efficient.
In this range, you should bet on around 5 hours of battery life with light use
The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is effectively enabled by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for Intel Iris Xe.
High-end NVIDIA Ampere graphics card, GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing is able to run the latest games despite the high 2.5K definition of the screen, which requires more 3D calculations than Full HD, which induces a lower number of fps raised.
The Iris Xe is directly integrated into the Core i7-12700H Intel Alder Lake-H hybrid processor here combined with a large amount of above average 32 GB of RAM.
It goes without saying that the power provided by this core is out of proportion to that provided by the vast majority of mobile computers on the market.
This heart, which supports the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti very well in games, will especially appeal to creative people. Because it guarantees much faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core and 8/16 GB DDR4, the difference is especially strong in areas that use CPU and RAM resources and take advantage of multicores, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti offers creators the advantage of accelerating processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
The storage is up to the bottom, entrusted to a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity capable of accommodating several games, software and files, including why not a personal production.
An SSD offers several advantages over a hard drive: it is more shock-resistant, energy-efficient, silent, but also much faster.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, you can get online game maps faster, and you get much faster game/software launch, processing and start/stop.
Finally, this versatile multimedia designer-gamer laptop makes itself heard and heats up when pushed hard (eg games, treatments).
To limit temperatures, you can add a vented support to this computer (remember to check the measurements carefully!).
