HP is hoping to bounce back into the gaming market with its new line of Omen laptops and desktops.
The tech company launched a brand new gaming lineup today, The Verge reported. The Omen line has initially introduced four products, two laptops, a tower and a monitor display. At prices starting at almost $900, the Omen line seems to cater high-end consumers.
The Omen line kicks off with two gaming laptops on its roster. Aesthetically, the laptops look gorgeous with its sleek black and red color theme. The keyboard is all decked out with cool "Dragon Red" highlight, reports CNET.
The smaller laptop has a 15.6-inch display and runs on an Intel Core i3 processor. The larger model has a 17.3-inch display and starts with an i5 processor. Both units can be configured with up to an i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. Consumers can also choose to upgrade either unit with a GeForce GTX 965M GPU and 4K display.
Meanwhile, the batteries on both laptops are pushed towards the front, making the dual fans more efficient and preventing the units from overheating during heavy gaming sessions.
The smaller laptop will cost $899.99, while the larger one will sell at $979.99 and will be available for purchase on HP's website and Best Buy starting July 10.
Meanwhile, the Omen desktop is also a sight to behold with glowing LED lights running along the edge of the machine. The HP desktop from the Omen line is designed to be fully compatible for VR gaming, hinting that the base specs must be powerful enough to handle it.
HP is also introducing a 32-inch monitor as possibly the perfect partner to the Omen desktop. The desktop monitor has a 5-millisecond response time and a 75Hz refresh rate. It also comes with two HDMI outputs and a built-in USB port. The monitor supports AMD's FreeSync Technology, allowing smoother gameplay by synching the GPU output with the display's refresh rate.
The Omen desktop and monitor is set to come out in August. HP has not revealed the price tags for the two products, but it will probably be more expensive than the Omen laptops.
The Omen line is an impressive move on HP's part, having failed previously with its attempt at building a gaming rig known as VoodooPC. The tech giant has hopefully taken note of the errors committed in the past, making Omen a truly promising gaming lineup that can compete with other established gaming names in the industry.
