The Victus by HP 16 (what a name!) is almost here. It’s being championed by HP and Omen as an HP laptop with Omen DNA woven right into its core, as can be evidenced by the fact that the Victus logo is basically carved directly from the lower half of the Omen logo.
Outside of just the logo, Omen’s fingerprint is also nestled away within the shell of the Victus via its classic Omen Gaming Hub. Undervolting, performance mode, and a slew of other features can be yours thanks to the hub, which is a nice perk on the software side.
On the hardware front, this machine will keep you in the game, though it won’t rival the power ceilings of, say, the Alienware m15 R6. Options cap out at an NVIDIA RTX 3060 or AMD Radeon RX 5500M for the GPU, and the top CPU options are an 11th Generation Intel Core i7-11800H or 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800H.
In other words, the Victus 16 isn’t going to be a mobile tank. However, it’s set to be an aesthetically pleasing solution for gamers who are fine with entry to mid-range specs and don’t want to break the bank. The full rundown of specs is listed below.
As mentioned above, the Victus by HP 16 is slated for June 2021 availability. Here’s what HP has listed for starting prices:
- Victus by HP 16 (Intel) starts at $849
- Victus by HP 16 (AMD) starts at $799
If you want a laptop in the distinct shade of mica silver, the Victus 16 is calling your name. Suppose you need the Omen gaming hub and crave a snazzy but subtle “v” logo on the back of your machine? The Victus 16 awaits. And in case you want a PC that lets you remind everyone of the company that made it every time you say its name, the Victus by HP 16 is right here. Whatever your circumstance may be, the Victus 16 will be ready, budget and backpack-friendly as ever.
