HP has updated its OMEN 15 gaming laptop with new design and new specs for 2020, including an option to configure it with an AMD CPU, a first for a OMEN laptop.
The OMEN 15 can now be configured with up to an Intel Core i7-10750H or an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H CPU. For graphics, you can now have it configured with up to NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super Max-Q.
For memory, you can have it configured with up to 32GB of DDR4-2933 on the Intel model and DDR4-3200 on the AMD model. Storage can be as high as 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD, in either a single stick or dual 512GB sticks in RAID 0 configuration.
The new model has a 15.6-inch display with 180-degree flat hinge design. You have a choice of a standard 1080p IPS LCD, 144Hz FHD IPS LCD, 300Hz FHD IPS LCD, or 120Hz UHD IPS LCD or OLED, with NVIDIA G-SYNC on select configurations.
The OMEN 15 now has a new design, with a new diamond logo with a blue green gradient. It comes in two colors, Mica Silver and Shadow Black with optional per-key RGB backlight. The new design also features an improved thermal design, with an industry first IR thermopile sensor for temperature monitoring, larger vents and a 12V fan with three sided venting.
As for battery life, HP claims 12.5 hours for non-gaming tasks but it's obviously going to be a lot less during gaming.
The new HP OMEN 15 starts at $999 and is now on sale.
