We had found some information before, but we are finally fully introduced to the new HP’s OMEN PCs, which is a line of products focused on gaming by integrating a wide range of systems designed to offer a high-level gaming performance.
With this new OMEN PC lineup, HP has opted for variety while keeping a neat design, a wide set of features, and a very attractive and aggressive finish thanks to its lighting details in red.
HP’s OMEN X Compact Desktop
A PC with a unique design that stands out for how light and easy to carry it is. It has a backpack-like accessory that enables you to strap it to your shoulders and carry it to enjoy the unique VR experience it provides.
The OMEN X has Intel’s 7th-gen Kaby Lake processors, factory-overclocked GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, which means that we can enjoy a great gaming experience at up to 4K resolutions.
HP has been meticulous about adapting the PC when used along with the backpack so the experience could be as comfortable as possible. It is thanks to this that the cables have the right length while also making it possible to change the batteries on the spot.
