The OMEN 17 has 24 more blades which are 17% thinner than those in its predecessor. It also has an outlet that’s 14% larger than the previous OMEN 17. HP claims that the new OMEN 17 has a reduction of lima °C (9 °F) on the keyboard surface deck compared to previous generations.
Both the OMEN 16 and 17 have up to QHD 165Hz displays with response times of 3ms. They also cover 100% sRGB and have Eyesafe display certifications by TÜVRheinlan. Sticking with the theme of color, both laptops have per-key RGB lighting that integrates with OMEN Gaming Hub Light Studio.
Alongside the OMEN 16 and 17, HP also announced the OMEN 25i Gaming Monitor. It features HP Eye Ease with Eyesafe certification, a first for an OMEN gaming monitor. It reduces excessive blue light by 30% percent compared to standard LCD displays. The OMEN 25i has a refresh rate of 165Hz and a 1ms response time with overdrive. It supports AMD FreeSync Premium Pro and is NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible.
The monitor has VESA DisplayHDR 400, covers 90% of DCI-P3, and reaches 400 nits of brightness. It also features Shadow Vision, which enhances image lebih jelasnya in dark areas of games. The OMEN 25i Gaming Monitor will be available in July starting at $350.
