Hybrid Devices for Gaming and Creation
The OMEN Transcend 16 Laptop is a cutting-edge device built for gaming and creation. It offers stunningly bright visuals and a premium slim chassis, making it perfect for content creation. The first-ever mini-LED display on an OMEN device offers extreme HDR 1000 for incredible details and vibrant true-to-life colors, while its 16:10 aspect ratio provides lifestyle gamers with more screen real estate for improved productivity when editing video, audio, and photography with enhanced vertical content viewing. With a peak brightness of 1,180 nits, HDR 1000, and a 240Hz refresh rate, games, creative projects, and entertaining content will look stunningly vibrant and clear, even in sunlight.
The laptop is also portable, featuring a magnesium frame that makes it the thinnest and lightest gaming laptop from HP to date at under 2.1kg and 19.9mm. Combined with a 97Whr battery pack, this gives gamers and creators a premium on-the-go experience with long-lasting battery life. Additionally, it features up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900HX mobile processor and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPUs to play the latest hits or power intensive compute work with ease.
The OMEN Transcend 16 is not the only device in HP’s lineup that offers high performance. The company is also announcing the next-generation OMEN 16 Laptop for hardcore gamers. This is the most powerful OMEN 16 yet, with a gen-over-gen improvement of 119 percent FPS in Cyberpunk 2077. It is powered by up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900HX mobile processor or up to an AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS mobile processor for ultra-fast in-game computations. Graphics powered by up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Laptop GPU ensure every pixel is rendered at lighting speeds on up to a QHD 240Hz display with a 3ms response time.
