HP launches new gaming laptops – and new venture Victus

HP has now launched three new gaming laptops: Omen 16 and Omen 17 as well as the brand new venture Victus.

Both Omen laptops have a QHD, 165 Hz, ips panel with 3 ms response time and 100 percent sRGB. The monitor also has Eyesafe certification so it is gentle on the eyes during long sessions. The keyboards are backlit and have RGB lighting.

The cooling uses Omen Tempest Cooling Technology with Dynamic Power, Omen Gaming Hubs Performance Control and Undervolting which promises to maximize the computer’s airflow and performance and increase the battery capacity from 52.3 to 83 Whr. This should provide up to about nine hours of battery life.

The laptops are said to have easy access to memory and storage which makes them easy to upgrade with a new ssd or memory module. They also have wifi 6e and a Thunderbolt 3 port.
