Chassis, connections, screen of the HP Omen Transcend 14-fb0100nf

With its ceramic white aluminum design, anodized and sandblasted finish, this versatile laptop has an elegant and discreet appearance while adopting the angular lines of a model targeting gamers.

This multimedia creator gaming laptop PC offers good connectivity including 2 USB-C including 1 Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.4 and Wi-Fi 7 B wireless modules for communicating and connecting remotely, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port or even 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.

As the webcam is Infrared, you can authenticate biometrically using facial recognition and Windows Hello technology.

The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is nice so that you can better discern its keys.

HP Omen Transcend 14-fb0100nf

The screen stands out on a number of points, such as its 2.8K definition superior to Full HD, ideal for High Definition content, its 16:10 format displaying more elements in height than the classic 16:9 format.
The screen is also distinguished by its OLED DCI-P3 specifications ensuring much more faithful colorimetry than average with great black depth as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. But also minimal latency here associated with a refresh rate of 120Hz higher than the standard 60Hz, which reinforces general fluidity, including in games.
OLED involves a glossy treatment which gives punch to the colors but is subject to reflections in bright environments (eg outdoors).

Performance, autonomy of the HP Omen Transcend 14-fb0100nf

The HP Omen Transcend 14-fb0100nf may appeal to those who wish to have an elegant compact High Definition multimedia laptop PC that performs well in gaming and creation.

As it features the dedicated high-end GeForce RTX 4070 ray tracing graphics card with NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, this versatile Ultrabook is capable of running the most recent games that are intensive in 3D resources. Under the latter, however, some concessions may be necessary to benefit from good playability. Because the 2.8K definition of the screen requires more graphics calculations than Full HD, which results in a lower number of fps.

Gamers will therefore be delighted with the performance of the GeForce RTX 4070. And creative people too. Because under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power – e.g.: Adobe Photoshop/Premiere, Vegas, VSDC – the GeForce RTX 4070 accelerates multimedia processing.

NVIDIA Optimus technology automatically activates/deactivates the GeForce RTX 4070 in real time depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus actually favors operation on the Intel Arc as much as possible, a graphics solution inserted in the processor even though it is much less powerful. Because the Intel Arc is energy efficient, which promotes autonomy.

In terms of autonomy, expect around 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
Coming back to the GeForce RTX 4070, it is requested by Optimus to carry out graphics work deemed too heavy for the Intel Arc, typically for gaming.

The Iris Xe takes place in the Core Ultra 9 185H, Intel processor Meteor Lake with 16 hybrid cores, AI features and adjustable TDP. The Core Ultra 9 185H is coupled with a good amount of 32 GB RAM to provide good overall power capable of satisfying demanding users.

If this heart supports the GeForce RTX 4070 well in games, it will particularly delight creators. Because it performs multimedia processing much faster than if we were dealing with a classic Quad/Hexa Core and 8/16 GB DDR4/5. We particularly feel the difference in CPU and RAM resource-intensive work that takes advantage of multi-cores, such as 3D rendering, video editing or photo editing.

Obviously the storage is entrusted to an SSD, here with a large capacity of 1 TB to install and store multiple games, software and files including personal creations.

Thanks to the SSD, reaching online game cards is faster while starting/stopping, carrying out processing and launching games/software is faster, for example.

Generally speaking, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive.
Because an SSD is much faster, in addition to being silent, less energy-consuming and more resistant to shocks.

Finally, this easy-to-carry versatile multimedia gaming laptop PC heats up and makes itself heard when pushed hard (e.g. games, treatments).
A ventilated support can be associated with it to limit its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
