HP DROPS ENTIRE NEW RANGE OF OMEN AND PAVILION GAMING GEAR
New laptops are joined by a mouse, keyboard, and headset.
A few years back you’d scoff at the idea of a range of gaming hardware and PCs coming from *checks notes*... HP? But that was then, and now HP’s Omen range is going gangbusters, with striking designs in both desktop and laptop form factors, and now joined by a range of peripherals to match.
At the top of the range is the new Omen by HP 15, which... yes, the name is a bit naff, but the hardware is solid. Under the sleek gaming design MAX-Q GTX 1070, 8th gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, and up to 32GB of RAM, alongside a range of storage options. There’s a 15.6in display that runs at either 144hz 1080p, 60Hz 4k, or 60Hz 1080p and NVIDIA G-SYNC.
And easy to use screws let you get at the RAM and storage for easy upgrades.
The OMEN by HP 17 beefs things up considerably, with a larger 144Hz display, 8GB GTX 1070, and Bang & Olufsen speakers, alongside a Core i7 processor.
On the other hand, the HP Pavilion Gaming 15 laptop combines gaming power with a more work-oriented machine, with a greater emphasis on storage and powered by a Core i7 processor and either AMD Radeon RX 560X or NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 with MAX-Q graphics.
On the peripherals front, there’s the new OMEN by HP Sequencer Keyboard, with opticalmechanical blue switches and RGB LED keys, the OMEN by HP Reactor Mouse with a .2ms response time and optical mechanical switches (and, yes, of course it’s RGB-lit), and even a couple of mouse pads.
