Performance comparison

Frames per second (FPS)

Gaming laptops with more powerful graphics cards, processors, and higher screen refresh rates render graphics better, providing gameplay with reduced motion blur and stuttering.
At 1080p settings, our OMEN Laptop (17t-ck200) stands out due to its premium graphics card. Conversely, the Victus Gaming Laptop (15-fa1010nr) and Victus Gaming Laptop (16t-r000) might struggle during intense gaming sessions in these settings, partly due to their comparatively lower-tier graphics cards.

Overall gaming experience

Trackpad precision

All our laptop models come with precision touchpad support to provide accurate and responsive multi-touch gestures. This feature ensures smoother navigation and interactions during gaming and everyday use.

Build quality

When it comes to build quality, our HP OMEN models have superior craftsmanship when compared to the HP Victus models. Nevertheless, both lineups share a commitment to sustainability by using recyclable materials.

Aesthetics

While both models offer eye-catching designs, our HP Victus models take personalization a step further. They come with various colour options so our consumers can choose a laptop that resonates with their unique style.

Value

If you’re a casual gamer, an affordable laptop with a good display, longer battery life, and the ability to perform well even at lower graphics settings could be what you're looking for. Our OMEN Gaming Laptop (16t-wf000) or the Victus Gaming Laptop (15-fa1010nr) are good options.
You need every edge you can get over your opponents if you're a professional gamer. You'll need a laptop with high refresh rates, powerful processors, strong graphics cards, speedy RAM, and effective thermal cooling. Our OMEN Laptop (17t-ck200) and OMEN Transcend Gaming Laptop (16t-u000) are fantastic choices for you.

Summary

At HP, our OMEN laptops come with top-tier hardware and the latest technology to provide gamers with an immersive gaming experience.
