New rig gives gaming enthusiasts desktop power on a laptop

HP Inc. today unleashed its most powerful gaming laptop to date, the†OMEN X by HP Laptop. Built for gaming enthusiasts and esports athletes seeking maximum performance, the OMEN X Laptop is engineered with the thermals to support unlocked CPUs to allow for overclocking, and factory-overclocked GPUs and memory options for superb gaming performance in a stunning design.

Competitive gamers demand optimal and configurable desktop-level performance to deliver the best frame rates and responsiveness to beat the competition. They also crave a device that doesn’t compromise performance for mobility. Studying how gamers compete at the highest levels, HP created a device to respond to their needs, while delivering high-end components, advanced thermal solutions, fast and responsive displays, a fully customizable mechanical keyboard, and software tools that let gamers push the Omen X Laptop hardware to the limit.

“Esports is one of the fastest growing categories in gaming and we are excited by the popularity of HP’s OMEN family of products,” said Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager, Consumer Personal Systems, HP Inc. “With the release of the OMEN X Laptop, HP is bringing key innovations to performance, industrial design and customizability that were once only possible on a desktop, to give gamers a competitive edge.”

Engineered for Gaming Performance

The latest AAA titles and esports tournaments require high-performing graphics and raw-computing horsepower, so HP packed the OMEN X Laptop with industry-leading technology and custom-tuning capabilities, including:

  • The OMEN Command Center Software to custom tune and push hardware to its limits, with the ability to manage CPU and RAM overclocking; move gaming network traffic with a network booster to reduce latency in online games; and, customize system lighting to streamline gaming controls
  • Intel 7th gen unlocked Intel Core i7 CPU options, XMP memory options for memory overclocking†and tested profiles up to DDR4-2800, and factory-overclocked graphics cards up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 – ideal for fast-paced or multi-player games running at 4K resolutions
  • RAID0 SSD option for ultra-fast boot and game loading, PCIe SSD+HDD storage options for quick responsiveness and massive storage capacity, or standalone 1 TB 7200 rpm HDD option
  • Thermal management to push high-end hardware beyond factory settings, including high-performance fans to increase airflow and an integrated vapor chamber with four 3.5 mm heat pipes improve heat transfer from the GPU and CPU to the four rear corner-mounted radiators

Designed for Immersion

Gaming is an immersive experience, so HP optimized the OMEN X Laptop to be VR ready on all configurations and includes features that enhance gameplay and limit outside distractions for full immersion:

  • Mechanical and RGB LED-per key backlit keyboard, including 2.5 mm travel with tactile feel and mechanical switches to provide instant feedback and clear indication when a key is pressed; RGB LED per key for customizable key maps; independent, programmable macro keys; and, N-Key rollover on every key for anti-ghosting functions
  • 17-inch diagonal 4K display†option for ultimate high-resolution gaming, or 120Hz 1080p display options for fast refresh rates and smooth visuals; and all configurations are NVIDIA G-Sync enabled for reduced image tearing
  • DTS Headphone:X for simulated surround sound with any headset†and premium sound featuring HP Dual Speakers with Audio by Bang & Olufsen
  • HP Audio Boost to ensure peak performance without overloading the speakers
  • A translucent window to see inside the laptop, along with custom lighting and an aluminum finish for a premium look and feel that can be personalized and customized for the individual gamer
