HP Omen 15-ek1096nf Against the competition

HP Omen 15-ek1096nf is currently available at Promotion in the HP France Store It meets very few competitors in its class as it is one of the only companies to make use of this powerful graphics card with a large amount of RAM as well as Thunderbolt connectivity.

If the HP Omen 15-ek1096nf doesn’t meet all of your criteria, in our gaming laptop guide you’ll find other configurations for gaming on a similar budget. For the same budget, choose the model that has the most powerful graphics card, and it will have the greatest performance impact.

Chassis, Connectors, and Display HP Omen 15-ek1096nf

This versatile and creative gaming laptop that can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes has a relatively sleek, discreet and original look with its cyan black aluminum design, and a matte finish with angular lines that adopts gamer icons.

Its connectivity is good, including 1 USB-C Thunderbolt 3, 2 HDMI video outputs and a mini-DisplayPort useful for connecting easily to a TV or monitor for example, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for remote connection, Ethernet and audio ports or up to 3 USB 3.0 ports (compatible with USB 2.0) to ensure transfers are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.

It is very unfortunate not to find a numeric keypad when this function is standard from 15 inches to facilitate the entry of numbers.
However, of course, the button keyboard can also be backlit, which is useful for better distinguishing its keys in the dark.

Thanks to IPS technology, the screen has wide viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, with color reproduction more accurately than average. It will attract gamers with its frequency of 144Hz which enhances the fluidity of games compared to the 60Hz standard. As it adopts 16:9 format associated with Full HD definition, the screen is also very suitable for viewing videos and high definition content in general. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also provides better visibility than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).

Performance and autonomy for HP Omen 15-ek1096nf

The HP Omen 15-ek1096nf may appeal to those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop that does well for gaming and creativity.

The latest graphics-intensive games can be played on this laptop built for gaming and creativity using the high-end custom NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 ray Max-Q Edition graphics card.

In addition, the GeForce RTX 3070 has the advantage of accelerating processing under programs that use GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which will interest creators.

In practice, the GeForce RTX 3070 is automatically dialed in real time, by NVIDIA Optimus technology depending on the tasks being performed.

Optimus prefers the Intel UHD 630 solution as much as possible over the processor, although its benefits are modest because it is energy efficient, which enhances autonomy. As a result, the GeForce RTX 3070 is enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for an Intel UHD 630. With any of these graphics solutions, it is clearly possible to view photos and videos.

The Intel UHD 630 sits right inside the processor, the Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H Intel, certainly not the latest, but it still packs a nice punch with 16GB of RAM.
This core supports GeForce RTX 3070 well despite the fact that Hexa Core’s contribution to gaming is variable compared to Quad Core.

In any case, the kernel will attract the maximum number of users as it ensures a solid overall performance. Creators will especially appreciate that this core offers much faster processing than a quad-core processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory, especially in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources that take advantage of multi-cores, such as video editing, 3D rendering, or photo editing. .

It is clear that SSD storage enhances its daily responsiveness and fluidity compared to a simple hard disk drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we can access online game cards faster and take advantage of faster game / program operations, processing and start / stop.

It must be said that SSD is much faster than hard disk with lower power consumption, more shockproof and silent.
With 512 GB, the SSD offers capacity in line with HDD standards. However, if you need more space, you can use external storage. Preferring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device is an interesting option for fast transfers.

Finally in terms of the autonomy of this multi-media, content creator-oriented gaming laptop that heats up and buzzes when hard pressed (like games and treats), however at mid-levels for this type of PC I’d bet around 5 hours of battery life in light use .

To contain the temperatures, you can use a well-ventilated brace if necessary (Remember to check the dimensions in this case!).
