HP's OMEN 15 has a 240Hz display and Nvidia RTX, and the Obelisk gets a Core i9-9900K

At its CES press event today, HP announced some new gaming products from its OMEN lineup. These include a new OMEN 15 laptop, a refreshed OMEN Obelisk, and the OMEN X Emperium display.

The OMEN 15 promises to be the first gaming laptop to have a 240Hz display, with its 15.6-inch 1080p display. It's also designed for expansion, with a single panel to access the storage and RAM.

But, most importantly, it includes Nvidia's new GeForce RTX graphics, which will be announced by the company later on today. At the current time, RTX graphics are only for desktop PCs. The key feature in Nvidia's new graphics cards is ray tracing, which generates the path of light creating more life-like effects. It also includes a Core i7-8750H CPU.

HP's OMEN Obelisk is getting a mid-stream refresh with new specs. The machine is now offered with Intel's ninth-generation processors - including a Core i7-9700K or Core i9-9900K - and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, whereas previously, it had eighth-generation processors and up to an RTX 2080. Other new features in the OMEN Obelisk include liquid cooling, CPU overclocking (the current model with eighth-gen processors is not K-series), and up to 64GB HyperX DDR4-2666 memory.

Finally, HP announced the OMEN X Emperium 65, a 65-inch gaming display that supports Nvidia G-Sync and HDR. The resolution is 4K, it supports refresh rates of up to 144Hz, and it comes with a 120W soundbar that has three amps.

The new OMEN 15 laptop will be available in February, starting at $1,369.99, although the one with the 240Hz screen isn't coming until July, and pricing isn't available for that yet. The refreshed OMEN Obellisk is coming in March, starting at $2,249.99. And finally, the OMEN X Emperium 65 with Soundbar will be available next month, starting at $4,999.
