Lenovo Legion 5 Pro or HP Omen 15, which Ryzen gaming laptop computer should you pick? I have actually compared both to show you the differences and also aid you decide which deserves it. Both of my laptops have the very same essential specs, AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor, Nvidia RTX 3070 graphics, 16 jobs of memory, a 1TB SSD as well as a high refresh screen, yet despite looking similar on paper there are some quite large differences in between these 2 makers that you need to find out about. Both have a dark finish, nevertheless I would certainly rank the build top quality of the Myriad 5 pro above the Omen 15. The legion’s metal cover was sturdier compared to the Omen’s plastic lid, and also the leading edge of the Omen as well as corners feel sharp. Perhaps as an outcome of a lower tier construct top quality, the Omen evaluated much less also. It’s 800g or 1.8 pound lighter once you include the power bricks, as the Legion has a much bigger 300 watt block compared to the Omen’s 200 watt block. The Legion 5 Pro is a little deeper, probably owing to its taller 16:10 display, it’s likewise thicker also, however the Omen is a little little bit broader. The Legion’s screen had far better color range, but anticipate various results with the 1440p prophecy. The Myriad was also brighter, at the very least between 60% and also 100% illumination, or else the Prophecy was brighter at
reduced degrees. The Myriad 5 Pro has a MUX button which can be used to disable optimus after a reboot, as well as this will boost gaming efficiency. The Prophecy is stuck with Optimus, yet you can bypass it with an exterior screen, extra on that later. With optimus disabled the 5 Pro uses G-Sync, or FreeSync with optimus made it possible for. The Prophecy also has FreeSync, but the FreeSync array is much reduced and also much less beneficial fairly. The 5 Pro likewise has an overdrive mode to reduced display reaction time, and also it’s a fair bit much better than the Prophecy’s. My Myriad had basically no backlight bleed, the Prophecy had extra uneven places however I can not claim I noticed it during regular use. It’s additionally worth keeping in mind that the Prophecy 15 additionally has a 1440p 165Hz display alternative as well, so expect various outcomes with that said one. The display on the Prophecy goes the full 180 levels back while the Legion’s stops quicker. Both have a 720p video camera over the display between, though the 5 Pro has a button on the right to literally detach the camera to make sure privacy. This is what the video camera and also microphone appearance and also seem like on the Omen 15, as well as this is what they look and seem like over on the Myriad 5 Pro. Both of my keyboards have white backlighting, nonetheless both also have RGB options too. All keys and
secondary features are lit up on both, and also the legion has two brightness degrees while the Omen just has the one. The Legion has a numpad while the Omen does not. Directly I liked inputting on the Legion, though the crucial presses don’t really feel also different to me. The major reason was simply that the leading edge of the Prophecy really feels sharp to me, while the Legion is smooth, yet likewise my hands can relax much more conveniently on the legion. The Prophecy’s power switch is ideal alongside delete and also backspace, the Legion has it right up the back, and also the shade of the light adjustments to show the efficiency setting you’re currently in which I assume is a lot more useful. I had no troubles making use of the accuracy touchpads on either, I liked the feel of the click more on the Legion, plus it’s a little larger too. The 5 Pro has an air exhaust vent on the left while the Prophecy does not, the only point in common on this side is a 3.5 mm sound combination jack. The 5 Pro has a USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port, while the Prophecy has Gigabit ethernet, USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A port, HDMI 2.1 output as well as SD card slot. Both have an air exhaust on the right, and also both have USB 3.2 Gen1 ports on this side, one Type-A for the 5 Pro while the Omen has a Type-C as well as two Type-A ports along with a tiny DisplayPort. The Prophecy simply has air exhausts on the back while the 5 Pro has the rest of its I/O, which I locate more suitable as cumbersome cable televisions go out the back as well as off the beaten track. The essential distinctions between the ports on these two makers are that the Omen has the SD card port and the DisplayPort output. The Legion 5 Pro does not have these, but it does have an additional Type-A USB port and a Type-C USB port. Both of the Type-C ports on the Legion deal
DisplayPort out, so technically both ought to be able to run 3 monitors, but the Type-C port on the back of the Legion also sustains Type-C charging, the Prophecy 15 does not have Type-C charging. All display outputs link straight to the Nvidia graphics, so this might be utilized to bypass Optimus on the Prophecy. The lid of the 5 Pro illuminate however can be shut off with this faster way, while the Prophecy doesn’t have illumination. The bottom panels were similar, vents up the back directly above the consumption followers, though concerning fifty percent of the vent holes are blocked on the Prophecy, presumably to route air to the followers. The internals are quite similar in regards to capability. Both have the battery down the front, the Prophecy has its 2 M.
2 ports on either side of the battery while the 5 pro has them just above. Both have two memory slots in concerning the same location, nonetheless WiFi 6 on the Prophecy is soldered to the motherboard, so an and also to the Legion there. The battery in the 5 Pro is larger at 80Wh compared to the 70.9 Wh battery in the Prophecy 15, nevertheless despite this the battery was lasting for about a hr much longer in the Prophecy in the YouTube playback examination. Both were evaluated with their default high screen revitalize price, yet we can quickly boost battery life by 2 hrs on the 5 Pro by instead restricting it to 60Hz. Now we could do this on the Prophecy too, but the 5 Pro gives us this fast and also basic shortcut rather than experiencing all the Windows settings each time to manually transform it, which I think offers a far better
customer experience. While running either tension tests or video games, I observed that the battery on the Prophecy 15 was draining pipes while linked into wall surface power. It simply appears that the smaller 200W power block for it isn’t sufficient to deal with the 5800H and RTX 3070 under full load for an extensive time period. I did attempt altering some recommended settings in the BIOS yet that didn’t assist. The Legion had no such issues, despite likewise having greater power limits, yet it’s power block is likewise a lot larger. The audio speakers definitely seemed much better on the 5 Pro, there’s a bit extra bass while the Prophecy seems tinnier in comparison. Allow’s take a look at thermals following. Both laptop computers let you change efficiency profiles, though the Legion 5 Pro has three various alternatives while the Prophecy just has two, however the Prophecy does provide us the alternative of tailoring follower rate, a feature the 5 Pro does not use. I’ll only be comparing the highest performance profiles in this video clip, if you intend to see just how both do at the lower modes after that you can check the complete evaluations connected down in the description. Both have 2 fans and heat pipelines, though the Omen shares 2 pipes in between CPU and also GPU while the Myriad has actually one shared. Both have complete VRM coverage, however the Omen does not exhaust air from one of its sides. These are the temperature levels when sitting idle and also while under CPU plus GPU cardiovascular test. Generally the Omen 15, displayed in the red bars, was cooler than the Legion 5 Pro, shown by the purple bars, however the 5 Pro is getting to greater clock rates, so
greater levels of performance are likely what’s drawing in the additional heat. This is confirmed when taking a look at the power limits, the Omen 15 is restricting the cpu to 35 watts while the Legion runs the exact same CPU at 45 watts. Likewise the GPU on the Prophecy is additionally what we ‘d commonly call Max-Q, while the Myriad 5 Pro is Max-P – that is the complete 125 watt power limitation. The Myriad 5 Pro is likewise doing better in Cinebench, again both have the exact same Ryzen 7 5800H cpu yet the Legion enables greater power limitations which leads to better efficiency. Single core ratings aren’t also various, nonetheless multicore score is almost 10% higher on the Myriad. The space tightens when running both on battery power. Performance is lost with both laptops, but regardless the Myriad is still able to carry out better on battery power. This might be why the battery lasts much longer on the Omen in spite of it having a smaller sized battery, it may be limiting output harder. Both were cool to the touch when simply sitting there still, low 30s is typical stuff for a gaming laptop computer, though the WASD location on the Omen was a bit colder. This was additionally seen with the stress and anxiety examinations running, the WASD area of the Omen is amazing suggesting air is moving via the keyboard. The legion has warmer locations, however it’s still not what I ‘d call hot even in those locations – let’s have a listen to fan noise. Both were silent when idling,
but the Omen was earning less noise. The Prophecy was louder when under tons however, I found in this worst instance cardiovascular test it was running at optimum with the fans readied to automatic speed, so no distinction between this as well as by hand maxing it out. The louder fans of the Prophecy would certainly be contributing to it running cooler, in addition to its reduced power restrictions. Less power amounts to less heat, so allow’s see how well both laptop computers compare in games. Battlefield V was evaluated in project mode, and also I’ve got both laptop computers at stock highlighted in red. The 5 Pro is hitting a typical frame rate that’s 15% greater than the Prophecy 15, which is rather a distinction thinking about that theoretically both have the exact same CPU, GPU as well as memory. This is most likely since the 5 Pro lets us disable optimus while the Omen does not support this attribute. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the video games criteria, and the results are much closer with each other below. The 5 Pro was still ahead, yet at just 3 FPS it’s less of a difference and also not one you ‘d be likely to discover in practice. Far Cry 5 was also examined utilizing the games benchmark, and this time around both are incredibly close with each other. Technically the Prophecy was somewhat in advance, however the distinction is so negligible that it’s well within margin of mistake
varies. Now the Myriad 5 Pro does deliver with suboptimal memory. I’ve got an entire video clip discussing that over below, but essentially it is possible to improve its performance by utilizing memory with reduced timings, and I’m not also talking regarding like very low timing unique costly memory or anything. These are the memory timings of the supply memory that includes the 5 Pro as well as Omen 15. Both use 2 8 gig sticks that go for DDR4-3200 CL22 in single ranking, yet there are some differences in other timings like tRFC which are greater on the 5 Pro. Now these are the timings with the 5 Pro with the memory set linked in the description being used, and also they exactly match the Prophecy 15, so let’s see the performance distinctions now. In Combat zone V I’ve obtained the brand-new memory 5 Pro cause eco-friendly, as well as it’s a lot more according to the various other RTX 3070 laptops that let you disable optimus now, like the MSI GP76 and XMG Neo 15. In Darkness of the Tomb Raider the 5 Pro with same speed memory as the Omen is now reaching 13% greater ordinary framework price contrasted to the Omen, and also it additionally had a comparable 12% boost over the Prophecy currently in Far Cry 5 as well, so the 5 Pro can certainly obtain some gains when using the same rate memory that the Omen ships with. It’s also worth noting that we can boost performance with the Prophecy by linking an outside screen, as this bypasses Optimus and links straight to the Nvidia graphics. The 5 Pro is still ahead, yet a minimum of the
Omen does not need a memory swap. Currently let’s look into some material maker workloads, we’re back to stock memory right here. I have actually checked Adobe Best with the Puget systems criteria. Once again the 5 Pro was in advance below also, however it’s only racking up 2% greater. The difference is also smaller sized in Photoshop, both were scoring specifically the same below, while DaVinci Resolve was a little far better with the 5 Pro almost 5% above the Prophecy. The Myriad 5 Pro is in advance in SPECviewperf too, which checks out numerous professional 3D workloads. Once again the 5 Pro was also in advance in the 3DMark tests, as the GPU can carry out much better with optimus handicapped. This reveals the memory difference is less of a problem below contrasted to the games, as supply memory was examined. Both laptop computers featured a 1TB NVMe M. 2 SSD, and the one in the 5 Pro was a little faster. The Prophecy likewise has an SD card port however, which the 5 Pro is missing. Linux support with an Ubuntu 20 real-time CD was comparable with both. Wi-Fi, key-board, touchpad, audio speakers as well as video camera serviced both, nevertheless the Myriad’s performance accounts are baked right into firmware so we can still change in between the 3 efficiency modes with the function as well as Q faster way. The biography on the Legion has more choices too, given a lot of the choices are additionally available with the control panel software application. Alright allow’s go over price next, you’re mosting likely to need to refer to the links in the description as costs will alter in
time, due to the fact that at the time of recording the Legion 5 Pro still isn’t available in the US. At CES Lenovo discussed the 5 Pro would certainly start at $1000 USD, however it’s not clear what specification that’s for. The Prophecy 15 on the various other hand starts at $1120 USD, and while you can order today it will not deliver for some time yet, appears like every person is at the mercy of AMD’s supply. If the Myriad 5 Pro base spec at $1000 USD features Ryzen 5 5600H and also RTX 3060 graphics, well, it’s going to crush it. It appears as well great to be true though, and also I wouldn’t be amazed if it finishes up featuring RTX 3050 graphics – we’ll have to wait and see. All things taken into consideration though, I think Lenovo’s Legion 5 Pro is a better alternative contrasted to HP’s Prophecy 15, so it would certainly make good sense if there is a cost premium there. With the same specifications the 5 Pro was winning essentially every test. Yeah the Omen ran a bit cooler, yet that’s since the followers run louder as well as it has reduced power limitations resulting in lower performance. At the very least it has fan control though! The Prophecy does win in some areas though, it’s lighter and it’s improved battery life in spite of having a smaller battery than the 5 Pro, and the RAM the Prophecy ships with is better. It’s also obtained an SD card slot, but or else the I/O is rather comparable with some minor differences. There’s just not that much else opting for though, other than possibly the reduced price, however that’s still yet to be seen. The
construct quality of the 5 Pro is better, it’s got a better display with G-Sync as well as a MUX button to disable optimus. Internals are similar, yet the Prophecy has soldered Wi-Fi to make sure that’s an edge to the Legion. The power brick of the Legion is a fair little bit larger and also heavier, yet a minimum of it avoids battery drain while video gaming. Honestly it possibly makes more sense to compare the Omen 15 versus the Myriad 5 non Pro, yet I don’t have that a person yet and a great deal of individuals still requested for this contrast – so right here we are! A very easy win for the Legion 5 professional yet at the end of the day it comes down to the rate distinction. Ensure you’re subscribed for more forthcoming laptop contrasts like this one. If the 5 non pro comes in I’ll certainly contrast it versus the Prophecy 15 also, and also I think most likely against the 5 Pro also to see if the Pro is worth it.
