NVIDIA has all but confirmed that the 2021 HP Omen 15 gaming laptop will be powered by RTX 3000-series graphics. According to a clearly premature sales listing on bestbuy.com, they will comprise the RTX 3070 Max-Q hinted at in previous tips. Its latest leak puts its starting price at US$1600.

The next-gen HP Omen 15 has been linked to the RTX 3070 mobile card for some time now, most recently by NVIDIA itself. This laptop has been seen in leaks that hint at markedly improved performance compared to the Max-Q 2070 or 2080 solutions. Now, a fresh tip indicates that this is indeed the case, while also outlining how much it might cost.

It comes in the form of a new sales page added to Best Buy online - only to be pulled again soon after, implying it was posted in error. However, its cached form remains, demonstrating clearly that it refers to an Omen (15-ek1013dx) with an "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070".

This spec is listed alongside a Core i7 processor, which, should this machine be the same 15-ek1xxx PC spotted on Geekbench recently, is most likely an i7-10870H. The new leak may also show that HP intends to sell Omen 15 SKUs with 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSDs in 2021.

It looks like this configuration will start at Best Buy for US$1599.99. From the cached page, it will remain much like its 2020 forebear in terms of looks, Shadow Black colorway and all. Then again, the image giving this impression could still be a place-holder. Then again, HP has yet to formally release this putative RTX 3000 gaming laptop.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
