cooling is the protagonist in powerful equipment with a renewed design
HP has once again reinforced its commitment to desktop computers for gaming. The 2019 Omen Obelisks now give way to the new HP Omen that change noticeably both in the design of its box and in its internal specifications.
For this release HP has two versions called HP Omen 25L and the most ambitious HP Omen 30L, but the news does not stop there: together with them HP has presented the new gaming monitors HP Omen 27i and a new corporate logo.
Bigger and more spacious, let the air run
The new chassis of the HP Omen is now minimalist but above all it is more spacious: both designs are intended to give more space for cooling and to be able to use state-of-the-art components without compromising temperatures.
The two models have names that refer to their volume, and in that chassis we find metal fronts and sides, although both in the Omen 25L and in the Omen 30L we have tempered glass side (optional on the 25L) to be able to see the components of the equipment at all times and enjoy, for example, those components that have RGB lighting.
In the HP Omen 30L this greater space accommodates above all a key element: the new thermal compartment which also uses a 120mm Cooler Master fan with RGB backlighting.
That ambition to keep equipment cool is rounded off by details like the ability to use both air-cooled and liquid-cooled inside. Even the tower’s legs are so much higher now, 15mm versus 4mm for Obelisks, with the idea of facilitating that the hot air also circulates through the lower part of the equipment and the cooling gains whole here too.
These computers can be found with various configurations that allow to have processors from AMD and Intel and with graphics from NVIDIA or AMD, being able to combine both components without any problem.
In the case of processors, we can choose up to the new Intel Core i9-10900K (10 cores, 20 threads of execution, up to 5.3 GHz) or up to recent AMD Ryzen 9 3900 (12 cores, 24 threads, up to 4.3 GHz). In the case of graphics, the options are varied and we can integrate up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or even an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT.
Base configurations are completed with 16GB of HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 memory and a 512GB WD Black PCIe NVIMe SSD, plus a 1TB capacity WD SATA hard drive. Even so, all these sections are fully configurable, and we can access different options in this regard as well, such as reaching 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM. The starting power supply is a 750W Cooler Master with 80 PLUS Platinum certification.
The new HP Omen also have 6 RGB lighting zones that can be customized with the Omen Command Center software, which has been redesigned and allows you to control various additional sections of the computer. The brand’s own visual identity has also changed with a diamond design with two variants, one that includes the word “OMEN” inside and the other that does not.
New HP Omen 27i
Accompanying these teams we also have a gaming monitor. It is the new HP Omen 27i, which has a nano IPS panel with 1440p resolution and support for refresh rates up to 165 Hz.
The design has also been renewed in this case with a support that allows adjusting both the height and inclination of the monitor, and at HP they make use of a double pillar that according to those responsible help with cable management.
At the back we find a diamond-shaped panel with the called “diamond panel” that offers easy access to the connection ports (there are no USB-C ports, yes) and that also has an RGB lighting system on that back.
The monitor is compatible with both the new version of AMD FreeSync as with NVIDIA G-SYNC, and in its control panel we have access to different color profiles or to the superimposition of the FPS data in real time, for example.
Price and availability of the new HP Omen 25L, 30L and HP Omen 27i
The new desktops will be available tomorrow, May 5, in the United States. The HP Omen 30L have a starting price of $ 1,199 (Ryzen 5-3600, Radeon RX 5700 XT), while the HP Omen 25L will start at $ 999.99. From there we can get for example to the ambitious Omen 30L of $ 1,999.99 that includes an Intel Core i7-10700K, a GeForce RTX 2080 Super, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD.
The monitor HP Omen 27i will also be for sale in the United States, for a price of $ 499.99. Neither the desktops nor the monitor have prices or availability fixed in other countries at the moment, but we will update this data when we have it available.
