After Nvidia’s recent graphic card announcement for laptops, there is little reason for anyone buying an older version. HP has already brought out its new Omen notebook which unsurprisingly gives you the option to either opt for a GTX 1060 or even a 1070.
The laptop comes with a 15.6-inch or 17-inch WLED-backlit display with resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels. It also supports Nvidia’s G-sync technology.
Under the hood, you’ll get a 6th-generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor with up to 16 GB of DDR4 memory and up to a 512 GB M.2 SSD. As for the graphics, you can go as high as a GTX 1070 with 8 GB of dedicated RAM, which is the maximum you can get without altering the chassis of current laptops. It also means that the laptop does support VR.
There are four B&G speakers onboard, an HP Wide Vision HD webcam and a full-sized backlit keyboard. It supports Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth, HDMI-out, DisplayPort and Ethernet for connectivity while also retaining 3 USB 3.1 and a single USB 2.0 port.
Battery life is said to last five and a half hours on a full charge. The price for the HP Omen is not exactly known, though, the 17-inch version is said to retail at $1600. We don’t know yet when will it go on sale.
