HP’s Omen 15 gaming laptop is a great option for gamers as it has a robust cooling system, long battery paired with great hardware. HP did delay the launch of this laptop in India, however, made it silently available on their site and Amazon off late.
In terms of design and build, HP has made almost no changes when compared to the last-gen, however, upgraded the display to QHD one with a 165 Hz refresh rate. Also, last time, HP limited the GPU to an RTX 2060, however, this time you have an RTX 3070 option as well.
HP made the Omen 15 from scratch for AMD’s Ryzen 4000 series processors and made it one of the best thermal efficient gaming laptops last year. So, essentially this year HP doesn’t need to do much as both the socket and TDP remains the same for these AMD Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors.
