Comment

Model: I once wrote that there is a race starting where every manufacturer is trying to release a very compact mobile gaming companion. Well, HP is doing otherwise with Omen X 17 and releases a gaming behemoth. It is a giant in every way, whether it is performance or bulkiness.

My way of looking at top level devices nowadays is maybe only around thermal management and maybe multimedia or connectivity. But thermal is the biggest focus mostly, because you have a i7-7820HK processor with GeForce GTX 1080. Both are very powerful and power hungry. So yeah, again there are other devices with similar components already. What distinguishes the Omen X from its competition? And this question alone might make it hard to come up with a purchase decision. Because there is nothing unique about this device. I am not sure, maybe the 120 Hz panel could be considered as a distinctive point, but that’s mostly about it. At least there are 2 USB 3.1 Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 3 support. Otherwise, I would completely give up on the Omen X.

I know I sound negative, but this is not something specific to the Omen X, but for Desktop Replacement laptops nowadays in general. They all are big in size, they almost all come equipped with fastest components. What separates them from each other is again how they cool themselves. The Omen X fails at this point. During heavy 3D load, the device gets warm, but at least it manages to stay under hot area. The idea of overclocking stops right here, due to bad thermal management. Just like every other behemoth, the Omen X is equipped with a comically large power adaptor, so, should you buy it?

Okay, the answer totally remains to your preferences. As I said, this device is going to stay on your desk, whatever your choice would be in this segment, they all will high likely stay on desk, unless you want to move around with a very heavy laptop that may last only about a couple hours on battery. Therefore what I would advise to the possible buyer is go out, check all the devices and maybe compare the pricing. The competition is really though here. MSI, Asus, Acer, Lenovo… They all have different models in this segment, they all have really very similar specs, so it is rather about your taste in design and looks than performance itself. If I had the opportunity to buy this device, I would definitely buy it. But if this review would have been about an Asus Strix ROG device, I would still say the same. Overall, the HP Omen X 17 series is a success, it provides the performance it promises. But it does not provide any uniqueness that the competition cannot provide.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (Laptop): Pascal based laptop graphics card using GDDR5 graphics memory. Should offer a similar performance to the deskto GTX 1080. However, there is also a more power efficient "Max-Q" version that performs worse than the normal GTX1080 and is used in thin and light laptops. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7820HK: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.9 - 3.9 GHz. It is the second fastest model of the consumer H-series in the beginning of 2017. The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1100 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake). Compared to the Core i7-7820HQ, the 7820HK lacks business features like vPro or TXT support.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
