HP Omen X 2S Review: PCMark And Futuremark Performance

Futuremark benchmarks have been the go-to system tests since the late ‘90s. We ran the HP Omen X 2S through PCMark 10, which is designed to gauge the system performance in everyday use case scenarios with GPU acceleration-enabled, while 3DMark tests its gaming chops.

PCMark 10 reveals the HP Omen X 2S’ thermal advantages and how it's SSD affects performance. It’s the highest overall scoring notebook we’ve tested but looking closer at the Digital Content Creation score shows it scoring 14-percent higher than the Origin PC EVO17-S, which benefits greatly from longer sustained multi-core turbo. However, the EVO17-S’ faster Samsung SSD lets it pull ahead of the Omen X 2S in productivity tests.

3DMark turns the tables on the Omen X 2S, which loses to the Origin PC EVO17-S by 7-percent in the DirectX 12-based Time Spy and 14-percent in the DirectX 11-based Fire Strike. Despite the CPU-performance advantage the Omen X 2S has, its no match for the cooling advantage a 17-inch chassis provides the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q in the Origin PC EVO17-S.
