    Has anyone tried to run The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on the Omen yet?
    Allthough I know the minimum requirements is higher than the Omens (GPU the bottleneck) specs, it would be nice to know if it would run or not, and how
    bad it would run :p

    No, but someone posted this in the Alienware 13 (ULV CPU & 860M) thread:

    The Omen should handle it a little better.

    I went ahead and ordered the Omen Touch Select (the version with the 4720 processors, 960M GPU and B&O speakers). It cost me a bit more (only because HP no longer has the same coupon I used when purchasing the original Omen - obviously a marketing tactic since they knew they'd be releasing the upgraded Omen), but considering I'll have this laptop for quite I while, I figured I should get the best possible processors. FYI, if you order the Omen from the HP Store now, you will be ordering the one with these processors. And there will probably be a price drop on the earlier models :)

    Of course, my crazy mind starts thinking..."hmm, I wonder what the next upgrade will be? Will they integrate the GTX 970 and much faster processors? And when will this happen?"

    :D

    I'll let you all know about the speakers. I'd be surprised if there's a dramatic difference.

    Just installed The Witcher 3 and played about an hour.
    Running it in 1080p, medium to high settings with all postprocessing settings enabled and SSAO.
    I dont know the exact fps, but it runs damn smooth. My guess is about 50-60fps
    Unfortunately my final exams is next week...damn impatient to play this game for real!

    Good to know that Omen can play witcher 3 at high settings with good frame rate. I had read a lot of issues of the game on multiple forums. Amazed at how 860m is handling these games.
    I believe that you have not over clocked your GPU & you are playing on stock frequency

    I really like the Omen series. it's the true envy that worth it's price

    and 860m is a legend specially on OC

    Does anyone know when the omen will be available with the GTX 970M? If it is available, does anyone know a trusted site I can get one on? I just saw that the Omen pro was released with Quadro GPU so maybe there has been a refresh. When I go to the HP Store to look at the options, there are none to be seen.

    Any alternative sites that offer the Omen with 970M?

    Maybe in another 2 years
    Omen has just been REFURBISHED with 960m. I don't think there are any plans to introduce a 970m version...

    Yeah, I doubt that you will see Omens with a 970 anytime soon.
