After announcing new gaming devices a few months ago, HP has unveiled its new flagship Windows 10 gaming PC, the OMEN X Desktop.
According to Microsoft, the OMEN X is a "fully customizable, powerful desktop for the gamer who wants the best performance, thermal management and cutting-edge design". The unusual cube form factor houses "a revolutionary thermal management solution, which includes a tri-chamber design with dedicated cooling for each chamber".
As you would expect, the OMEN X Desktop is VR-ready, and its other key features include:
- 6th-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 overclockable processors
- Up to dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 / dual AMD Radeon R9 Fury X
- NVME PCIe connected SSDs
- Custom LED light modifications and "brightness adjustments in real time"
- "Four different modes: Single Color, Color Show, System Monitor and Audio Show"
- DirectX12 support
- Supports up to three 120mm liquid cooling radiators with top-mounted exhaust events
- Stand raises the case off the ground to maximize ventilation
HP has teamed up with Maingear to allow users to spec their PCs as desired - an option that will be available from "early 2017".
But Microsoft says that the Omen X Desktop will be available in the US from today in standardized configurations from HP.com, starting at $1,799. It will also be sold from October 16 at select US retailers, with prices starting at $2,099.99. Gamers will be able to buy the basic OMEN X chassis for $599.99.
A new OMEN X Curved Display will also be launching in early 2017, and will be HP's first display to offer Nvidia G-Sync Technology. Further details, such as those of pricing or design, were not revealed.
