HP Omen 15 gaming laptop: Prices, specs and features


The HP Omen 15 claims to be the “smallest 15-inch gaming” laptop that costs less than $1,000. Even more interesting is what’s inside: your choice of AMD and Intel CPUs.

Announced Tuesday and available immediately at HP.com and Best Buy, the Omen 15 is true to its size claim, if only because the 15-inch gaming laptops of smaller stature cost more than $1,000. The Omen 15 is trim enough, measuring 14.5 x 9.4 x 0.9 inches. The weight comes in at a reasonable (for a gaming laptop) 5.4 pounds.

HP’s Omen 15 will offer both AMD Ryzen and Intel Core CPUs. Instead of cramming in a 10-key pad, HP uses the extra space for a full-size inverted-T cursor control.

The parts inside offer an exciting amount of choice. The Intel versions of the Omen 15 will range from a quad-core Core i5-10300H to a six-core Core i7-10750H CPU. The AMD versions will offer the six-core Ryzen 5-4600H up to an 8-core Ryzen 7 4800H.

The GPU pairings give Intel-based models more of an edge, though. The Ryzen 7 4800H ships with up to a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. The Intel-based Omen 15 matches up with GPUs ranging from GeForce RTX 2060 to GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q GPUs.

Several of the other premium features skew toward Intel, too, including 300Hz and 4K screens, and Thunderbolt 3. AMD laptops will have USB-C, but the ports will not support Thunderbolt 3.

The new HP Omen 15 features larger fan inlets to keep the hardware cooler.

Both laptops feature larger vent openings, a 25 percent larger fan fin size, and overall 62-percent increase in airflow at just 39dBA. HP, in fact, touts this as “desktop-level CPU” performance.
