Despite the current situation in the world, HP has announced two new products in their OMEN lineup with the new OMEN Desktop and OMEN 27i Gaming Monitor.

“The OMEN brand continues to evolve its identity and grow a world-class ecosystem of hardware and software solutions in meaningful ways that address the needs of all gamers, especially at a time when socially connecting from home with friends and loved ones is so important,” said Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager, Consumer Personal Systems, HP Inc. “The latest OMEN Gaming Desktop adds components from Cooler Master, WD_Black from Western Digital, and expanded options from HyperX which reinforces our commitment toward
providing the best tools for progressing in your favourite games.”

There’s also a version of the OMEN 25L with a liquid-cooled CPU, EMI-coated glass side door and internal RGB LED lighting.

The OMEN 30L has an RGB LED front logo, tempered-glass front bezel, 15mm rubber feet, liquid-cooled CPU, EMI-coated glass side door, internal RGB, enhanced thermal and 120mm front RGB system fan.

The desktop was made for expansion with tool-less access. The OMEN Gaming Desktop can be configured up to an Intel Core i9-10900K (with optional Wi-Fi 6) or up to an AMD Ryzen 9 3900 processor.

For a few of the components of the OMEN Desktop, HP teamed up with HyperX for the RAM, Cooler Master for the power supply and Western Digital for storage.

Desktops,” said Larry Gonzales, sales and marketing VP, HyperX. “Gaming enthusiasts expect the best and OMEN exemplifies a collaborative attitude to provide quality and reliable memory to satisfy gamers’ performance needs.”

 

For storage, HP is using WD_Black hard drives and SSDs in the desktop.

“OMEN was created by HP to enhance gamers’ experiences, an approach that we at Western Digital share when designing our high-performance WD_Black line of storage products,” said Eric Spanneut, vice president and general manager, Client Computing Business Unit, Western Digital. “WD_Black for OMEN NVMe SSD continues this product pedigree, providing purpose-built storage in a best-of-breed gaming system.”
