HP launches new Omen gaming desktops and 27-inch monitor

HP has refreshed its Omen gaming PC lineup with two new desktops and a 27 inch monitor. Also new is a modernistic logo that replaces the older tribal mask-style branding.

The first thing you’ll notice is a sharper, cleaner and more up-to-date design (as expected, the cabinets offer tool-less access), but that’s just the start. There are two models on offer, the Omen 25L and Omen 30L. Processor choices include both AMD and Intel, with the Intel 10th generation i5 and AMD Ryzen 5 for those on a budget. Buyers with deeper pockets can also spec out their Omen desktop with Intel’s 10th generation i9 and AMD’s Ryzen 9.

You also get to choose between AMD and NVIDIA graphics – NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 does duty at the lower end, while at the pricier side of things, there’s the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and AMD’s Radeon 5700XT.

Storage options start off with a 256GB SSD, although there will also be configuration options for up to twin 2TB SSDs and up to a 2TB hard drive. The base model is kitted out with 8GB RAM (from HyperX), although HP will be offering customization options of up to 64GB. Buyers can customize the Wi-Fi as well, with HP offering both a Realtek-based Wi-Fi 5 solution and an Intel-based Wi-Fi 6.

Prices start at USD $899 for the base Omen 25L (Intel Core i5 10400 / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 / 8GB RAM / 256GB SSD / CoolerMaster 500W Bronze ATX PSU) and go up to USD $1999 for the top-of-the-line Omen 30L (Intel Core i7 10700K / NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD / 2TB 7200 RPM HDD / Cooler Master 750W Platinum ATX PSU)

Also new is the HP Omen 27i gaming monitor, which features a QuadHD (2560×1440) resolution, 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response, and NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility.  HP also claims 98% DCI-P3 coverage  for the Omen 27i’s nano-IPS panel.

Processor choices start at the AMD Ryzen 5, with Ryzen 7, Ryzen 9 and Intel 10th Gen i9.
