The HP Omen 16-b1210nf against the competition

The HP Omen 16-b1210nf is now available at Darty and meets many competitors in its category, where it is one of the few to offer such a recent processor with such a large number of cores.

If this HP Omen 16-b0074nf doesn’t meet all your criteria, check out our gaming laptop guide to find other configurations to play with on a similar budget. For the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, which has the most impact on performance.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Omen 16-b1210nf

This portable computer with a black design and angular lines, rechargeable up to 50% in 45 minutes, has a pronounced gamer look and is therefore relatively sober and elegant.

It is equipped with good connectivity with its 2 USB-C, its Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to, for example, a TV or monitor, its Ethernet and audio ports, but also its 3 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) which transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when connecting USB 3.0 peripherals.

The chiclet keyboard can be naturally backlit, which is useful for better distinguishing the keys in the dark.

To appeal to players, the screen adopts a frequency of 144 Hz, which significantly improves fluidity in games compared to the standard 60 Hz. In addition, its Full HD definition and 16:9 format make it suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos. In addition, thanks to IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. Too bad that the colorimetry is standard, lower than that of high-end IPS panels…

Performance, autonomy of the HP Omen 16-b1210nf

The HP Omen 16-b1210nf is for those who want a versatile laptop PC in a comfortable size that performs well in creation and is game-oriented.

Whether it’s the Iris Xe graphics solution integrated into the processor or the dedicated GeForce RTX 3050 Ti card, it is of course possible to view photos and videos on this versatile laptop designed for creating and playing, equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology.

Optimus automatically switches between the Iris Xe and the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti when needed. The Iris Xe is preferred by Optimus as much as possible, despite its much more modest performance in comparison, because it consumes little energy, which favors autonomy compared to the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which is more powerful and greedy.

Thanks to the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, you can indulge in a maximum of games if you agree to settings under graphic-intensive titles to obtain good playability.

As a bonus, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti speeds up processing under software that uses GPU computing power, for example under Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

They’ll also be pleased with the overall power of this creative gaming laptop PC, as it’s built around 16GB of RAM and an Intel Alder Lake-H Core i7-12700H hybrid processor.
In particular, this duo guarantees much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad/Hexa Core, the difference is especially noticeable in demanding work in RAM and CPU resources that use multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.

On the storage side, the SSD clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. It must be said that an SSD is much faster and at the same time more energy-efficient, more shock-resistant and quieter.

In concrete terms, thanks to the SSD, the processing is much faster, just like starting/stopping and starting games/software, and you can get to online game cards faster.

With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity comparable to that of standard hard drives, which may be too small for some.
But in this case, you can of course rely on an external storage unit like a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.

Finally, on the autonomy side, while you wait for more full tests, you can expect about 5 hours of battery life under light use for this versatile multimedia laptop PC focused on creation and games, which is expected to warm up and be heard in case of high demands (treatments, games).

If necessary, a ventilated support can be used to limit the temperature (remember to check the dimensions carefully!
