HP Omen X Gaming Laptop Review

HP Omen X Gaming Laptop:

HP is taking some bold steps when it comes to the laptop gaming experience with its Omen X Gaming Laptop. Why, you ask? Because at a time ,when other major players such as Asus and Razer are going for a thinner form factor on their gaming laptops. HP has stuck to the old formula of a beefed up bulky device that prioritizes performance.It’s sure worked. What the HP Omen X Gaming Laptop lacks in being sleek it more than makes up with its customizability. Here’s my review of the Rs 2,10,990 HP Omen X Gaming Laptop.

HP Omen X Gaming Laptop design

Though the HP Omen X Gaming Laptop may not be the leanest cat out there.The device sure cuts a pretty figure in the eyes of a gamer. The device has the trademark X pattern of the HP Omen X made on the lid with RGB LED lights in the X pattern. The 17-inch 1080p screen has rather large bezels around it and with the bulk of the whole device.It surely does not fit into any of the bags meant for 17-inch laptops.

The display part of the laptop is held together by two circular hinges with the Omen logo lit up by LED lights on top of the keyboard. The rather ordinary touch-pad is positioned right down the middle, just below the keyboard.

 

Performance

While on the topic of the keyboard. I must mention.The HP Omen X Gaming Laptop had the best set of mechanical keys. I have used on a laptop, or a dedicated keyboard.I am not a fan of the clicky feeling of the mechanical switches.This keyboard happened to have the softest travel. To top it off, the keys are are just raised by 2.5mm which hits the sweet spot when typing or playing. The positioning of the macro keys along the left-hand side provides quick access for switching weapons or applying bandages.

In terms of connectivity, the laptop offers ports on the left and right, as well as the back panel. The left hand panel houses a Kensington lock, USB-A 3.1, a headset combo 3.5mm and a dedicated mic in. On the right we have the SD Card reader, a USB-A 3.0, and the power port. The rear panel has the most functional port that include an ethernet port, two USB-C 3.1 Thunderbolt 3, a mini-DP 1.4, an HDMI 2.0 and a USB-A 3.0.

Design Aspects

The back panel of the device, like most gaming laptops, can be opened up, and HP has provided a small transparent panel which offers a view of what’s inside. This panel is held together by Phillips head screws and can be removed to swap out and add new parts to the system. The air vents of the device are on the rear panel on either sides of the ports.

Now that I am done writing about the design aspects of the HP Omen X Gaming Laptop. I will tell our readers that it is a very pleasant walk from here on. Because performance is where HP has not compromised at all. With the magnificent 120Hz 1920 x 1080 display that comes with Nvidia’s G-Sync technology.The images and graphics meld into one’s vision.

 

And in terms of processing power the laptop features.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (Notebook) GPU, Intel Core i7-7820HK processor and 16GB DDR4 RAM.Which virtually eliminates any lag. We ran the standard 3DMark 10 benchmark called TimeSpy which produced a score of 6,243 which is closer to a 4K gaming PC than a gaming laptop and is a decent score. But on the VRMark benchmark called Orange Room it scored 8,035 which is much better than a VR-ready PC. But not as good as a high-end PC despite having the specs.

Moving on from the technical aspect of the performance to one which is more relatable.I played Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Assassin’s Creed Origins on the HP Omen X Gaming Laptop.The results were some of the smoothest visual experience with these games. I used ultra settings on all the games with G-Sync turned on and the average frames per second on PUBG was around 100, CSGO was 360 and Assassin’s Creed Origins was 90.
