HP adds better Nvidia Max-Q GPUs and slim bezels to its Omen 15 laptops
HP announced that it will be refreshing last year’s Omen 15 gaming laptop series with improvements such as Max-Q GPUs and smaller bezels around the displays. The improvements are rather subtle and are set to become standard for this series moving forward.
According to Ars Technica, the area around the keyboard was changed to aluminum instead of plastic. The 15-inch display really feels bigger compared to last year’s model and the overall size of the chassis is now 7.4% smaller in width and 4.6% smaller in depth. HP also repositioned the fans more towards the corners of the chassis, enhancing the bottom venting, as well.
Users will be able to opt for variants with [email protected] Hz displays and even Nvidia G-Sync panels in addition to the 1080p ones from last year. Moreover, the Omen 15 now supports Max-Q GPUs up to GTX 1070 and the new hexa-core CPUs from Intel coupled with up to 32 GB of RAM, plus HDD/SDD/Intel Optane storage combos. As always, the HDD, SSD and RAM are accessible through a single panel for easy upgrades.
The new Omen 15 models will be available starting July 29 for as low as US$979.
