HP: Omen-X laptop is a 4K block with overclocked GTX 1080

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 | Gadgets

At the Gaming-fair Gamescom HP presented the new representative of his Omen series. The Omen X is a laptop with 17-inch screen, a mechanical keyboard and a small viewing window on the back. HP advertises the product as a laptop in the "industrial design and with many possibilities for customization" and plays on the many optional configurations.

The screen of Omen X has a 4K resolution and should be very fast response. Optionally, a 1080p panel with a 120 Hz repetition frequency can be installed. Compared to already available Omen laptops in the Omen X a Nvidia Geforce 1080 graphics card space. Therefore the device is considerably thicker, as can be seen on the product pictures. As a processor, HP again uses an Intel Core i7 of the generation Kaby Lake. It should be overclocked over the free multiplier.
This also applies to the built-in memory, which works in pre-tested profiles up to DDR4-2800. This is possible through XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) technology of the processor. The graphics card is already overclocked ex factory. The hardware is cooled by a fan with built-in Vapour Chamber, which is to spread the heat over heatpipes. The air is blown out at the back. In addition, two SSDs can be configured in the RAID 0 network. This improves the maximum data through striping the data, but increases the failure probability of the system because two data carriers are simultaneously consumed.

Both the SSDs and the memory modules should be easy to exchange. On the back of the laptop there is a flap for access to all these components.

The mechanical buttons of the Omen X have a travel distance of 2.5 mm and are individually RGB-illuminated. The notebook has three USB 3.0 Type A connectors, two Thunderbolt-3 USB-type C ports, a Mini Displayport jack, and an RJ45 connector for wired connections on the front and rear panels Ethernet. The operating system Windows 10 Professional is preinstalled.
The Omen X is available according to HP from November 2017 in Germany. He is expected to cost 2,600 euros. Current Omen laptops start at around 1,200 euros.
