Chassis, connections, screen of the HP Omen 16-xd0000sf

Rechargeable to 50% in 30 minutes, this versatile laptop targeting gamers and creatives has a relatively discreet look for a gaming model whose codes it nevertheless adopts with its shaded black design with angular lines.

This creative gaming laptop PC integrates good connectivity with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6 axis wireless modules for communicating and connect remotely, its Ethernet and audio ports or its 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 devices are connected.

We appreciate being able to hide the webcam behind a shutter when not using it in order to preserve privacy.

The chiclet keyboard can obviously be backlit so that its keys can be clearly discerned in the dark.
However, this range does not have a numeric keypad according to HP France, although this functionality is standard from 15 inches to facilitate the entry of numbers.

HP Omen 16-xd0000sf

Players will appreciate that the screen adopts a refresh rate of 144Hz which significantly improves fluidity in everyday life, including in games, compared to the standard 60Hz. The screen is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content due to its 16:9 format and Full HD definition. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a shiny panel. The screen also offers significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology, however not high-end since the colorimetry is classic here.

Performance, autonomy of the HP Omen 16-xd0000sf

The HP Omen 16-xd0000sf is aimed at those who want to equip themselves with a versatile portable PC that performs well in gaming and creation in a comfortable format.

Whether with the Radeon 780M graphics part housed in the processor or the GeForce RTX 4060, watching photos and videos is possible, as is playing modest titles. The GeForce RTX 4060 is in fact activated by Optimus technology to carry out graphics work deemed too heavy for the Radeon 780M.

NVIDIA Optimus technology actually performs an automatic real-time switch between the GeForce RTX 4060 and the Radeon 780M. Optimus favors the latter as much as possible because it consumes little energy to ensure the best possible autonomy.
In terms of autonomy, expect around 6 hours of battery operation in light use.

It is the Ryzen 7000 AMD Zen 4 Phoenix Octo Core Ryzen 7 7840HS processor which hosts the Radeon 780M. It is here coupled with 16 GB of RAM to provide overall power capable of satisfying demanding users.

We think of gamers because this heart accompanies the GeForce RTX 4060 well in games. But also to creators. Because this core ensures much faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4/5 processor, the difference being particularly notable in work requiring CPU and RAM resources using multi-core, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.

Creative people will be even more delighted that the GeForce RTX 4060 accelerates processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas, Adobe Photoshop/Premiere or VSDC.

On the storage side we find an SSD which rivals the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being more robust, more energy efficient, silent and much faster.

In practice, thanks to the SSD, games/software launches are carried out faster than with a hard drive, as are processing and starts/stops, and you can access online game cards more quickly.
More generally, the SSD guarantees increased fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a hard drive.

Of course, if 512 GB is too tight, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0/USB-C device then represents a wise option for obtaining fast transfers.

Finally, keep in mind that this versatile, multimedia-oriented creative gaming laptop PC heats up and makes itself heard when pushed hard (e.g.: games, processing). To limit temperatures, a ventilated support can be used in addition (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
