Powerful gamer laptop, the HP Omen 16-n0061nf with 16-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare sRGB screen with colors more faithful than average whose frequency of 165Hz improves the fluidity in games is capable of running recent games thanks to its graphics card NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing high-end. This GPU also accelerates multimedia processing like the AMD Rembrandt Ryzen 7 6800H Octo Core processor and the large amount of powerful 32GB RAM while the fast SSD storage with a large capacity of 1TB enhances responsiveness. This versatile Windows 11 laptop designed for gaming and creating comes with a backlit keyboard (but no numeric keypad) and connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 and USB-C.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Omen 16-n0061nf
The HP Omen 16-n0061nf can seduce those who are looking for a versatile multimedia laptop that performs well in games and creation, offering a comfortable format.
It benefits from a large amount of RAM (32 GB) above average, which allows it to see the future and to support the processor, an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Octo Core Ryzen 7 6800H Rembrandt, very serenely.
This core provides an overall power that is out of all proportion to the one delivered by the vast majority of models on the market, which will seduce demanding users.
Creative users in particular will be delighted to obtain much faster processing with this core than with 8/16 GB DDR4 and a Quad/Hexa Core processor. The difference can be strongly felt in areas that require a lot of RAM and CPU resources, such as 3D rendering, video editing or photo editing.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti dedicated graphics card accelerates multimedia processing in GPU-intensive software such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
Yet the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing is a high-end NVIDIA Ampere dedicated graphics card that targets gamers. Because it is capable of running the latest 3D-intensive games at a good level of detail.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing is activated/deactivated automatically and in real time by the Optimus technology. It is used to carry out graphics processing that is considered too heavy for the Radeon 680M.
Directly inserted in the AMD Ryzen 7 Octo Core Rembrand processor, the Radeon 680M allows, just like the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, to watch photos and videos. It is especially energy-efficient, which promotes autonomy.
In this respect, expect to run for about 5 hours on battery power in light use.
The storage is up to the task, entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1TB rivaling hard disks in the field to house multiple files, software and games including why not personal creations.
As a reminder, an SSD offers several advantages compared to a hard drive because it is more resistant to shocks, silent, more energy efficient and much faster.
In concrete terms, thanks to the SSD, you can, for example, reach online game maps faster than with a simple hard disk and you can launch games/software much faster, as well as process and start/stop.
More generally, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity in use than a hard disk.
Finally, this versatile multimedia creator laptop heats up and makes itself heard when it is strongly pushed (e.g.: games, processing).
To contain the temperatures if necessary, a ventilated stand can be used in addition (remember to check the dimensions!).

This creative gamer laptop has a good connectivity composed of 2 USB-C (against 1 max usually), Bluetooth 5. 2 and Wi-Fi ax (more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, Ethernet and audio ports, an HDMI video output useful to easily connect to a TV or monitor for example but also 3 USB (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
To easily enter numbers, a numeric keypad is integrated as standard from 15 inches. Its absence here is therefore regrettable.
Fortunately, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is useful to better discern its keys in the dark.
Gamers will appreciate that the screen has a refresh rate of 144Hz because it enhances the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. We appreciate that the colors displayed are more faithful than average as well as the fact that the vertical and horizontal viewing angles are large. With its anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) than a glossy panel, while being less tiring for the eyes during prolonged use. With its Full HD definition and its 16/9 format, the screen is also well adapted to High Definition contents such as videos.
