HP has announced a refreshed Omen 16. The 2022 Omen 16 sports the same chassis design as last year's version but now comes with Intel Alder Lake-H and Ryzen 6000H CPU options. Also available are GPU options up to a 150 W RTX 3070 Ti and, for the first time, a Radeon RX 6650M.

HP has introduced a refreshed Omen 16 with upgraded internals compared to last year's model. On the outside, the chassis is the same as that of the 2021 version. HP claims that the internal component upgrades combined with Omen Tempest cooling can result in up to 10% increases in CPU performance and up to 1.3x gains in GPU performance with a 150 W Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU

HP said that the Omen 16 can be configured with up to an Intel Core i9-12900H or an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor, up to 32 GB DDR5-4800 memory, and up to a 2 TB Gen 4 NVMe SSD. The Intel variant comes with GPU choices up to a 140 W RTX 3060 or a 150 W RTX 3070 Ti.

On the AMD side, we see the debut of the new Radeon RX 6650M, which is an incremental upgrade over the 2021 Omen 16's RX 6600M

The 2022 variant carries forward the same display panel as that of last year's Omen 16, which is a 16.1-inch QHD 165 Hz 300-nit display with optional G-Sync. FHD 144 Hz (250/300 nits) and FHD 60 Hz (300 nits) options are also available. The webcam continues to be the standard 720p fare but now comes with temporal noise reduction that should help with clearer images. There's an auto brightness sensor included as well. 

Both Intel and AMD variants feature Wi-Fi 6E wireless networking but neither offer a Thunderbolt 4 port. However, unlike the new Victus 15, the Omen 16 is at least equipped with 10 Gbps USB Type-C ports and HDMI 2.1-out. A 4-cell 70 Whr battery powers both configurations.

The HP Omen 16 will be available from summer in Ceramic White (Intel) and Mica Silver (AMD) starting from US$1,199.99.
