HP Omen 17 (2023): QHD gamer with RTX 4080 allows CPU undermining

The 2023 model of the Omen 17 — a high-end gaming laptop — uses a recognizable case from its predecessor, but builds on state-of-the-art hardware: Raptor Lake and Ada Lovelace drive the computer.

A Core i9-13900HX processor, GeForce RTX 4080 laptop graphics, and 32GB of RAM (DDR5-5600, dual channel mode) equip the computer for video editing, presentation, and gaming. The fast PCIe 4 SSD (1 TB) provides the necessary storage space and ensures short loading times. The matte QHD screen (17.3 inches, IPS, 165 Hz, sRGB) left a good impression.

The device displays all the current games smoothly on the screen. Full screen resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and high settings can be selected to maximum. High resolution can also be used if a corresponding monitor is connected – Omen offers up to three video outputs.

The battery can be charged via a universal USB-C power adapter (minimum 65W, 20V) – The Thunderbolt 4 slot supports Power Delivery (and can output a DisplayPort signal). The bulky 330W power adapter doesn’t have to be carried around with you. The slot also opens up expansion options in the form of a docking solution or an external GPU.

The preinstalled Omen Gaming Hub—the laptop’s control center—offers, among other things, the option of undervoltage: the CPU can run at lower voltages than the manufacturer wants. As a result, energy and heating requirements are lower. Too much voltage drop can result in an unstable or faulty system. Therefore, it is always done at your own risk.

Our review of the HP Omen 17 (2023) provides more information and plenty of benchmark results.
