This year has been quite an interesting time for gamers, and even more so for the computer-based community. Not only have innovative advances in technology and processing helped to catapult the genre to even greater heights, but manufacturers have also begun to introduce various cutting-edge peripherals, components, and designs, resulting in the market’s evolutionary upward trend. Now, HP has announced its newest Omen 15-inch gaming laptop for 2020 — a slimmer, more capable platform that boasts an industry-first IR thermopile sensor.
Aside from the variant’s obvious technical upgrades, it’s also the recipient of some subtle design tweaks. When compared to its predecessor, it’s sleeker than ever before, courtesy of the company’s newly-adopted minimalist design terminology. The laptop’s slim stature makes it all the more notable, however, especially considering its ability to house the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i7 H-series processors, AMD Ryzen 7 4800H-series, and 32GB of DDR4 RAM. As we mentioned earlier, it also boasts an all-new IR thermopile sensor, allowing for the regulation of increased thermal loads, as well as improved performance figures over longer periods of time. As a result, the example’s unparalleled temperature management, quieter fans, and optimized internal architecture make it one of the most attractive offerings around — especially at a price point of $910 and up.
