HP presents its new laptops for video games | Digital Trends Spanish
HP has just introduced its new laptop models with the new Tiger Lake-H processors, which Intel recently launched.
Like the rest of the manufacturers, HP will have several new and updated models with these chips. And one of the main ones is the Omen 16, which will have processor options to suit the buyer, reaching up to an Intel Core i7-11800H or an AMD Ryzen 7 5900HX. And in terms of video, it can be configured with an RTX 3050 Ti, 3060 or 3070.
The Omen 16 has a 16.1-inch screen of QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and a refresh rate of 165 Hz. It supports a maximum of 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage with an NVMe M.2 SSD, although with some differences that will depend on the processor: if it is Intel it uses PCIe 4.0, but if it is AMD, PCIe 3.0.
The Omen 16 will go on sale in June and its price will start at $ 1,049 for the model with Ryzen 7 5800H and RTX 3050 Ti plus 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, while the version with the same basic specifications but with Intel. Core i7-11800H and RTX 3060 will cost $ 1,149.
Victus, a cheaper laptop
HP also introduced the Victus (technically Victus by HP), a laptop with similar features to the Omen 16, but with more modest graphics card specs: at most an RTX 3060 or a Radeon RX 5500M.
The Victus has a 16-inch screen and, more than a particular model, it will be a sub-brand that will target the cheaper and not so enthusiastic market (for that type of people there are the Omen). It will come in several colors and its design seems more stylish and lighter than the rest of the equipment, which in some way shows who it is intended for.
Although the processor can be the same as that of the Omen 16, the great difference of this equipment is in the heat dissipation, which in turn could translate into an impact on the general performance and especially in the games more demanding.
Pricing for the Victus by HP will start at $ 799 for AMD processor models; those with an Intel chip will cost $ 849.
