HP is extremely conscious of the overheating problem in gaming devices. Gamers who spend long hours gaming on AAA titles want peak gaming performance from their laptop; and don’t want to compromise their optimal gaming experience. Overheating can take this entire joy out of gaming, despite the best-in-class tech specs. Cooling is also one of the key gamer frustrations, including the laptop becoming too hot or too noisy. In its new campaign, Game On with Tempest Cooling, HP talks about the thermal efficiency of OMEN 16. OMEN tempest cooling technology, with 3-sided venting and 5-way airflow, that keeps the laptop cool for smooth gaming experience.
