HP Omen 15 laptop Review: Strong AMD processor makes Intel tremble

Full of surprises. The AMD version of the HP Omen 15 scores with powerful components at a fair price on paper. In the test configuration, the GeForce RTX 2060 is accompanied by a Ryzen 7 4800H. Find out here whether the cooling system plays along and which strengths and weaknesses the 15-incher has otherwise.

HP's Omen 15 has a very broad hardware portfolio. There are not only various Intel models, but also several AMD variants. A mid-range or high-end chip from Nvidia's Turing generation is used as the graphics card (GeForce GTX 1650 Ti to RTX 2070). One of the best price-performance ratios is currently offered by the Omen 15-en0375ng tested by us, for around 1,260 Euros (~$1530, which contains a Ryzen 7 4800H and a GeForce RTX 2060, as mentioned at the beginning). The generated pictures are displayed on a matte IPS panel with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. In addition, there are 2x 8 GB DDR4-3,200 RAM in dual-channel mode and a 512 GB NVMe SSD in the space-saving M.2 format. The package is rounded off by Windows 10 Home 64 bit as the operating system.

The chassis is basically the same as the Omen 15-ek0456ng we tested a few months ago, which is why we refrain from analyzing the chassis, the equipment and the input devices again. However, the models are not completely identical. For example, the AMD version has a white instead of red keyboard labeling or illumination. Buyers will also have to do without a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Display

Let's get straight to one of the biggest disappointments: the display. While the Intel variant could show off with a good 144 Hz panel in the test, the AMD edition only has a mediocre 60 Hz panel on board.

* ... smaller is better

Besides the response time, the contrast is also much worse. Instead of more than 1400:1, the AMD model only has a ratio of 900:1. The Intel model is also usually ahead in the other disciplines - be it the color accuracy, the black value or the brightness. The Omen 15-en0375ng is hardly suitable for outdoor use due to its meager brightness (approx. 275 cd/m²).

However, the small color space is the biggest drawback in our eyes: 58% sRGB and 40% AdobeRGB result in rather pale and undifferentiated pictures. The good viewing angle stability can only compensate for this shortcoming to a certain extent. All in all, the picture quality does not do justice to the notebook's price. Regardless of whether it is a budget product or a luxury machine: We expect a high-quality panel with at least 300 cd/m² brightness, at least 1000:1 contrast and at least 80% sRGB coverage for gaming laptops - and 120 Hz upwards for 1,000 Euros (~$1214).

However, HP is not alone in its poor performance. With the exception of the Schenker Core 15 and Aorus 5 KB, the displays of the competition also leave much to be desired. Attention: Below a brightness of 100%, the display flickers with 200 Hz, which can cause problems for sensitive people.

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
20.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11.6 ms rise
↘ 9.2 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 34 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
30.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 29 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.9 ms).

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 detected 200 Hz ≤ 99 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 200 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 99 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 200 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19601 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Test conditions

Tuning fans can let off steam in the pre-installed Command Center. Besides system monitoring, the tool also offers a network booster and performance control. The latter includes three profiles that affect the performance and the temperatures or volume. Our tests were always performed with the standard mode, which is supposed to be suitable for all task types and is active out of the box. The fans always ran in automatic mode (see screenshot #3).

Power

Although it is a budget device in terms of price, the Omen 15-en0375ng definitely belongs to the high-end segment. This is mainly due to the strong eight-core processor, which rarely has advantages over a fast four- or six-core in games so far, but shows its muscles in specialized applications and generally has more future-proofing.

Processor

The benchmarks impressively prove that AMD is currently setting the tone in the CPU sector and has overtaken Intel. Thanks to its many cores, the Ryzen 7 4800H, which can process up to 16 threads simultaneously via SMT, sprints about 50% past the Core i7-10750H, which is very popular among gaming laptops, in multi-core applications like Cinebench R15. The lead over the Core i5-10300H, for example in the Legion 5 15IMH05H, is even around 100%.

Although the performance drops by a few percent under prolonged load, the Omen 15-en0375ng also cuts a good figure in the Cinebench loop. The clock is roughly on par with the 4800H competitor Schenker Core 15, whereas the Asus TUF A15 has to deal with a strongly fluctuating Turbo.

Graphics card

The GeForce RTX 2060 is the perfect companion for gamers who want to invest at most 1,500 Euros (~$1820) in a notebook. The DirectX 12 model is located between the mid- and upper-range in terms of performance and, in contrast to its cheaper brothers, can boast "real" ray-tracing capabilities.

While the CPU power is - as already explained - above average, the GPU speed falls behind the competition a bit. The Omen 15-en0375ng brings up the rear in the 3DMark tests, but the difference is often marginal and subjectively hardly noticeable. The same applies to the subtle frame rate drop in the Witcher 3 test (about 1 hour @FHD/Ultra), which simulates a longer 3D load.

Gaming performance

The combination of Ryzen 7 4800H and GeForce RTX 2060 is fast enough to play most current games smoothly with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and maximum details. Only very demanding and/or poorly optimized games, such as Watch Dogs Legion, Dirt 5 and Cyberpunk 2077, drop the Avg FPS below the 40 mark.

Emissions

Noise emissions

The fan control leaves a decent impression when idling and during simple activities (office, web, etc.). Although there can be short upsurges every now and then, the fans usually stand still, which leads to silent operation. Under load, however, the 15-incher clearly attracts attention. 48 dB(A) in the Witcher 3 test is similar to the noise level of the competition, which reaches 47 to 51 dB(A).

Temperature

The temperature development of the chassis varies a lot. While the case's bottom heats up to over 50 °C (122 °F) in some places under full load, the top only reaches a maximum of 42 °C (107.6 °F) - a moderate rate. Under the hood, the processor in particular heats up. After 60 minutes of stress testing with the Furmark and Prime95 tools, the Ryzen 7 4800H made itself comfortable at around 86 °C (186.8 °F). The GeForce RTX 2060 stayed noticeably cooler with just under 70 °C (158 °F). The values in the Witcher 3 test can be seen in the first screenshot.

Power management

Energy absorption

For a gaming notebook, the power consumption is within limits. The Omen 15-en0375ng is relatively frugal with 4 to 22 watts in idle mode, which promises good battery runtimes. Even under load, the consumption rates are usually better than those of the competition. There are many indications that the Ryzen 7 4800H is more energy-efficient than its Intel counterparts - thanks to the modern manufacturing process (7 vs 14 nm).

Battery life

One of the biggest strengths of the Omen 15-en0375ng is its battery life. Up to 20 hours in the ideal case (minimum load & display brightness) and about 10.5 hours of Internet surfing via WLAN (brightness reduced to about 150 d/m²) are outstanding in the gaming segment. Only Lenovo's Legion 5 can come close to these rates. However, the performance also drops significantly in battery mode. The frame rate dropped by almost 90(!)% in the Witcher 3 test without a power supply. However, performance or not: 70.9 Wh battery capacity should be a model for the competition (48 to 62 Wh).

Conclusion

HP Omen 15-en0375ng: Test device provided by HP Germany

If you can put up with a color-poor 60 Hz display and a high noise level in 3D mode, the Omen 15-en0375ng is a powerful and not too expensive gaming notebook.

We consider around 1,260 Euros (~$1530) for a Ryzen 7 4800H, a GeForce RTX 2060, a 512 GB SSD and 16 GB dual-channel RAM to be a good offer that appeals to price-conscious gamers. Very high details are rarely a problem in the native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. Buyers will also be spoiled with a top-notch battery life that even beats most other notebook classes.

If HP now improves the speed of the WLAN module, the stability of the case and the repeatedly criticized picture quality, the competition will have to dress extra warmly.

Note: Other AMD models of the Omen 15 offer a (probably better) 144 Hz panel.

Availability

The tested model with the suffix en0375ng is only listed by very few online stores (e.g. Mediamarkt & Saturn) and is unfortunately not available there at the moment.
