    • Is it really that noisy?

  • If this was a 3070, it would be great deal.

    A 3060, it's okay.

  • +1

    3060 mobile version is slower than desktop 1660super

  • Hi, dumb question, is this better than the MacBook Air M1?

      The form factor of the OMEN laptop is designed for gaming. It will excell at running Windows or other operating systems it was designed for. The Ryzen 5600H CPU is similar tech used in the PS5 and Xbox, so console game ports will be optimised for it. It also has an Nvidia 3060 dedicated graphics card for gaming. HP did however provide this laptop with a decent 75wh battery.

      The M1 AIR will excell in macOS, because that is what it is designed for and Apple has control of the ecosystem. It is designed for performance, battery life and portability.

      If you are comparing CPU performance using a cross platform benchmark such as Passmark. The AMD Ryzen 5600H is faster in multi-threaded workloads, but the M1 is faster in single threaded workloads. Note the 5600H Is designed for gaming and consumes more power then the M1. Otherwise it would have a Ryzen 5600u. They are also on a different TSMC node, 7nm vs 5nm.

      M1 will struggle with any of the latest AAA Gaming releases with the onboard graphics. This will run the latest stuff in 1080p with minimum 60+FPS and maxed settings. Not even comparable.

    • +1

      MacBook Air M1 is better unless it will be used for gaming or Windows-specific software.

  • +1

    The RTX 3060 runs at 80 Watts and boosts to 100 Watts, would probably give this a miss for that reason.

    • Can you explain what that means and if its bad?

      • +2

        Yeah sure.

        The easiest way to think of it is More Power (wattage) = Higher Performance. Previously with Nvidia Mobile GPUs, generally, the same model would perform similarly across the board with similar wattage, and ones that were given a lower wattage were branded as Max-Q devices (e.g. We would get a laptop with RTX 2070 and a different laptop would get an RTX 2070 Max-Q, both had RTX 2070's, but wouldn't perform the same).

        Nvidia has largely done away with this sort of grading scheme for the RTX 3000 series of Mobile GPUs. As mentioned above, previously you could assume two laptops, both with what appeared to be RTX 2070's would perform the same(ish), whereas now, this is no longer the case. The wattage (power) range for the RTX 3080 mobile series for example ranges from 80 watts to 150+ watts, which means that two RTX 3080 laptops could have up to 30% performance difference.

        The practical effect of this is a laptop manufacturer may create two of the same laptop, one with an RTX 3070 priced at $2200, and one with an RTX 3060 priced at $2000, however, because the RTX 3070 has significantly reduced wattage, the RTX 3060 may actually outperform the RTX 3070.

        The TL: DR is that just because a laptop has a higher tier GPU, doesn't mean it is a better deal than another laptop with a lower-tier GPU, if it has been hobbled by reduced wattage.

  • Which laptop is better to get for similar price this HP Omen or Lenovo Legion from https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/637586

    • +1

      The Legion deal is better

      8 core vs 6 core AMD RYZEN CPU
      165HZ display vs 144hz display
      80wh battery vs 70wh battery
      1 year premium care warranty vs 1 year standard warranty
