HP Omen 15 2018 review: gaming laptop is renewed to be more powerful and compact

HP Omen 15 2018 review

Last May, HP announced the renewal of its range of HP Omen 15 gaming notebooks, renewal in which, in addition to some small changes in the design to improve cooling and screen hinges, the manufacturer has taken the opportunity to install state-of-the-art hardware, such as an Intel Coffee Lake processor or NVIDIA GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 graphics. We have already had this new portable gaming in our hands, and then we leave you our experiences.

When we are looking for a computer to play, we usually always think of a desktop computer, with its tower, its high-end cooling system (which gives us the opportunity to overclock) and its graphics card as such. However, in recent years gaming laptops have become fashionable, laptops with components of the highest quality that have nothing to envy desktop computers, ideal for users looking to take their games anywhere..

HP is one of the leading manufacturers in the portable gaming market, and will continue to be so thanks to this renewal of its range of HP Omen 15 gaming notebooks, a range that now has high-end components that are perfect for playing at any time, in any place and any current game without problems.

HP has decided to install next generation processors, Intel Coffe Lake, in this new Omen 15 range, being able to find two different models, one with i5-8300H processor  and the other with i7-8750H. All the renewed models include DDR4 RAM, being able to find a model with 8 GB and the other models with 16 GB. As for the graphics cards mounted by these gaming laptops, we can also find two different, the basic models with NVIDIA GTX 1060, and the most advanced model that has an NVIDIA GTX 1070, compatible with G-Sync.

To these specifications we must also add your SSD (PCIe 4x in the most advanced models) along with 1 TB of hard drive to store anything in them, as well as an FHD screen that operates at a frequency of 144Hz and a keyboard with RGB backlight, everything that any gamer would look for in a laptop clearly focused on gaming.
