HP Omen 15 (i7-8750H, GTX 1070 Max-Q, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review

Compact gaming racer. The Omen 15 brings all the current computer games smoothly to the matte Full HD display. Hewlett-Packard uses a very responsive 144-Hz IPS panel here, and the rest of the equipment is also all right: NVMe SSD, 32 GB of working memory, Thunderbolt 3.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇵🇹 ...

The Omen 15 is not unknown to us. A few months ago we tested an entry-level model of the series with the Omen 15-dc0001ng, which is currently available for about 950 Euros (~$1084). With the Omen 15-dc0015ng, we now have the current top model of the Omen-15 series. You have to pay almost 2100 Euros (~$2396; for example ~$1600 in the US without the HDD) for this laptop, but the computer is correspondingly well-equipped with a Core i7-8750H processor, GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q GPU, 32 GB of working memory, NVMe SSD, HDD, and Thunderbolt 3. The competitors include devices like the MSI P65 8RF-451 - Creator, the Asus Zephyrus S GX531GS, the Schenker XMG Neo 15, the Razer Blade 15, and the MSI GE63 Raider RGB 8RF-008.

Since both Omen models have an identical build, we will not discuss the case, equipment, input-devices, and speakers again, but you can find the corresponding information in the Omen 15-dc0001ng review.

Maintenance

The Omen does not offer a maintenance cover. In order to access the insides, you have to remove the bottom of the case. While the case bottom of the sibling model we tested previously was so incredibly tight that we were unable to take it off, our current test unit shows some significant improvement. After we removed all the screws from bottom of the case, we were able to take off the case cover. To do this, we recommend starting at the level of the touchpad, where the plastic clips are not too tight and can be loosened by slightly bending the top of the base unit. The rest of the clips can then be unclipped using a prying tool such as a spatula. 

Display - Responsive IPS model

The Omen is equipped with a matte 15.6-inch display that has a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The brightness (283.4 cd/m²) and the contrast (511:1) turn out too low for a notebook of this price class. While the displays of many competitors in our comparison field have a maximum brightness that is even lower, they all offer a higher contrast. In general, we consider values above 300 cd/m² and 1000:1 to be good. It is positive that the display does not show PWM flickering at any time.

The 144-Hz panel supports Nvidia's G-Sync technology. This dynamically adjusts the frame rates of the display and GPU, which is supposed to create a smooth viewing experience particularly in computer games. According to the maintenance manual, G-Sync is also available for external monitors.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14793 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The display offers a fairly good color reproduction already in the state of delivery. With a DeltaE-2000 color deviation of 2.83, the display is within the ideal range (DeltaE smaller than 3). It does not suffer from a blue tint. The display is unable to reproduce the AdobeRGB and sRGB color spaces, with the coverage rates lying at 60% (AdobeRGB) and 93% (sRGB).

The color reproduction of the display can be improved with the provided color profile. However, you have to make sure that you have the same display model (manufacturer and model number) as our test unit, otherwise the color reproduction can become worse instead of improving. Often displays from different manufacturers can be used within the same notebook model series.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
11 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
17 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9 ms rise

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.1 ms).

HP has equipped the Omen with an IPS panel with stable viewing angles, so that the display can be read from any position. The display brightness is sufficient for indoor usage. Outdoors, you can only read the display if the sun is not too bright.

Processor

HP has equipped the Omen with an Intel Core i7-8750H hexa-core processor, which is a model based on the Coffee Lake architecture. Since the performance per MHz remained unchanged compared to Kaby Lake, the additional cores and the higher clock speeds are responsible for the additional performance.

The processor operates at a basic clock speed of 2.2 GHz, which can be increased via Turbo to 3.9 GHz (six cores), 4 GHz (four cores), and 4.1 GHz (one/two cores), respectively. The Core i7 has a TDP of 45 watts. Hewlett-Packard allows a short-term increase of the TDP up to 78 watts.

In the multithread tests of the Cinebench benchmarks, the processor runs for a few seconds at 3.5 to 4.1 GHz, but then the clock speed drops to 2.8 - 2.9 GHz. It runs through the single-thread tests at 3.9 - 4.1 GHz in mains operation. During battery operation, the CPU runs at 2.2 GHz (multithread) and 2.2 - 2.9 GHz (single-thread).

We check whether Turbo is used continuously during mains operation by running the multithread test of Cinebench R15 in a continuous loop for about 30 minutes. Between the first and second run, the results drop slightly and then remain on a constant level. The Turbo is used.

System Performance

The Omen does not lack in system performance. This is confirmed by the very good results in the CPU, GPU, and PCMark benchmarks. But anything else would have been a surprise. After all, the notebook contains very powerful hardware. The hexa-core processor offers sufficient reserves for the next few years, and the dedicated graphics core enables playing computer games. We did not encounter any problems.

Storage Solution

An NVMe SSD from Toshiba serves as the system drive. This is an M.2-2280 model that has a total capacity of 512 GB. In the state of delivery, about 433 GB of this is freely usable. The SSD delivers outstanding transfer rates. NVMe SSDs are connected via PCI Express 3.0 x4, which enables significantly higher transfer rates than a connection via SATA III. 

In addition to the SSD, the notebook also contains a 1-TB hard-drive (2.5-in, 7200 rpm), which serves as data storage. Please note that if you want to exchange the HDD for a higher-capacity model, you need to be aware that the recovery partition of the notebook is stored on the HDD.

An NVMe SSD serves as the system drive.

Graphics Card

The built-in GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics core from Nvidia is a version of the regular GTX 1070 GPU that is trimmed for efficiency and designed for thin and light notebooks. The model built into our test unit runs at a basic clock speed of 1215 MHz, which can be increased up to 1379 MHz via Turbo. The GPU is accompanied by 8192 MB of fast GDDR5 memory. The results in the 3DMark benchmarks range on a normal level for the GPU.

The UHD Graphics 630 integrated into the processor has been disabled by HP, so there is no solution for switching graphics (Optimus) here, and the GeForce graphics core is always active.

Gaming Performance

The Omen offers sufficient performance under the hood to bring all the current games smoothly to the screen at Full HD resolution and maximum graphics quality settings. If you connect the corresponding external monitor, you can also use resolutions beyond Full HD, but then you should not select quality settings that are too optimistic.

In order to evaluate whether the frame rates also remain constant over a longer time period, we run the game The Witcher 3 at Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings for about 60 minutes. While doing this, the in-game character is not moved during the whole time. We did not notice any drops in the frame rate.
