HP Omen (2020): cooling is the protagonist of a powerful equipment with a renewed design
HP has further strengthened its commitment to desktop PCs for gaming. The 2019 Omen Obelisk is now giving way to new HP Omen which change considerably both in the design of its box and in its internal specifications.
For this launch, HP offers two versions called HP Omen 25L and the most ambitious HP Omen 30L, but the news does not end there: with them, HP introduced the new gaming monitors HP Omen 27i and a new cooperative logo.
Bigger and more spacious, let the air circulate
The new HP Omen chassis is now minimalist but above all more spacious: the two designs are intended to give more space for cooling and to be able to use the latest generation components without compromising temperatures.
Both models have names that refer to their volume, and in this chassis we find metal facades and sides, although 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 any time and to take advantage, for example, of components that have RGB lighting.
In the HP Omen 30L, this larger space houses above all a key element: the new thermal compartment which also uses a 120mm Cooler Master fan with RGB backlighting.
This ambition of keeping the equipment well cooled is complemented by details such as the possibility of using both air cooling and liquid cooling inside. Even the legs of the tower are much higher now, 15mm obelisk vs. 4mm, with the idea of facilitating the circulation of hot air through the bottom of the equipment and allowing the refrigeration to gain entirely here too.
These teams can be found with different configurations that allow to have AMD and Intel processors and graphics from NVIDIA or AMD, be able to easily combine any of the components.
In the case of processors, we can choose up to the new Intel Core i9-10900K (10 cores, 20 threads, up to 5.3 GHz) or better AMD Ryzen 9 3900 recent (12 cores, 24 threads, up to 4.3 GHz). In the case of graphics, the options are varied and you can integrate up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or even an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT.
The base configurations are completed with 16 GB of HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 memory and a 512 GB 512 GB PCIe NVIMe WD black SSD, plus a WD SATA hard drive with a capacity of 1 TB. Even so, all of these sections are fully configurable, and we can also access different options in this regard, like reaching 64GB DDR4-3200 RAM. The starting power supply is a 750 W Cooler Master with 80 PLUS Platinum certification.
The new HP Omen also has 6 RGB lighting zones that can be customized with the redesigned Omen Command Center software, which allows you to control various additional sections of the equipment. The visual identity of the brand has also changed with a diamond pattern with two variations, one that includes the word « OMEN » inside and one that does not.
New HP Omen 27i
To support these teams we also have a gaming monitor. Here is the new HP Omen 27i, which has a nano IPS panel with 1440p resolution and up to 165Hz refresh rate support.
The design has also been renewed in this case with a stand that can adjust both the height and tilt of the monitor, and at HP they use a double pillar which its executives say cable management help.
On the back there is a diamond-shaped panel with the called « diamond panel » It offers easy access to the connection ports (there are no USB-C ports, yes) and it also has an RGB lighting system on the back.
The monitor supports the new version of AMD FreeSync as with NVIDIA G-SYNC, and in your control panel we have access to different color profiles or real-time FPS data overlay, for example
