As people stay at home due to lockdowns across the country, they’re turning to games more than ever to relieve stress and connect with others. Now they’ve got more hardware options to choose from with HP’s latest additions to their gaming suite: the OMEN 25L and 30L Desktops.
On both models, gamers will find visuals powered by up to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or up to AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics cards. Harness the computing power a game needs with up to the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i9-10900K or up to the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 9 3900 desktop processors.
To keep the CPU running cool, HP has worked with Cooler Master to offer both 92mm air and 120mm liquid cooler options. In addition to this alliance on the thermals side, HP has extended the relationship to include the power supplies as well, scaling up to a 750W 80 PLUS Platinum PSU from Cooler Master. Gamers can outfit the interior with up to 64GB of HyperX FURY DDR4-3200Mhz XMP memory with optional RBG lighting. They will also enjoy lightning quick boot times and game launches with ample storage space when pairing with up to two 2TB WD_Black M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD’s configured in RAID0.
Customers can choose either the 25-liter (25L) or 30-liter (30L) model, both built with refined thermals and a tool-less design for internal access. The 30L model comes with a tempered glass front bezel and an enhanced thermal compartment that houses a Cooler Master 120mm RGB system fan to bring in additional cold air into the system.
For those who wish to customize their setups, they can do so via the OMEN Command Center app, which enables lighting control for up to six zones including: the front logo, front fan, interior lighting, CPU cooler, memory, and graphics card. Users can also use the app to monitor individual component performance, allocate network traffic, and control fan speeds.
Both the OMEN 25L and 30L Desktops are expected to be available in retail stores and online starting in May. The 25L model will have a starting price of $899.99*, while the 30L model will start at $1199.99* on HP.com.
And for gamers looking to pair a display with one of these desktops, they can check out the new OMEN 27i Gaming Monitor. It is OMEN’s first combination of an IPS Panel at QHD resolution with a refresh rate up to 165Hz. Games will jump to life with a Quad HD (2560×1440) resolution and 350 nits brightness. And, thanks to NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility, gamers will experience fluid gameplay that reduces display stutter, input lag and screen tearing.
