HP Omen 16 is the new laptop that the multinational has introduced for the PC gaming market. Among its components stands out the new generation of graphics cards for laptops from AMD, Radeon RX 6000M.
HP Omen 16 is an absolute renewal compared to the Omen 15 that we had the opportunity to analyze.

On the one hand, it can be equipped with a Core i7-11800H, the latest Tiger Lake-H processors recently introduced by Intel, combined with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card.
The second hardware option is the one that offers the great novelty. A processor AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX 8 hearts and one Radeon RX 6000M that has yet to hit the market and that this laptop will debut. According to what they quote, it will be a high-end version of these RDNA 2 that AMD will present in two weeks at the Computex show in Taiwan.
Both configurations can include up to 32GB of 3200MHz DDR4 memory and two PCIe Gen 4 SSDs, in RAID and with 1TB of capacity each to cover internal storage. Not mentioned, but it is assumed that it will arrive fully equipped in connectivity with the latest technology available, in addition to the backlit keyboard and a special cooling system to keep temperatures under control.
