HP Inc., today, introduced a powerful line-up of OMEN and HP Pavilion Gaming innovations in India to raise the bar for gaming experiences.
The OMEN X 2S–the world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop –provides extraordinary power and multitasking capabilities, the OMEN 15 laptops bring exceptional power in their thinnest forms yet, and HP Pavilion Gaming 15 laptop offers outstanding versatility and mobility for gamers and creatives alike. In addition, with enhancements to OMEN Command Center software and new OMEN and HP Pavilion Gaming displays and accessories, HP has engineered an industry-leading gaming ecosystem that delivers everything gamers need to progress and achieve their goals.
The inspiration behind the OMEN X 2S 15 was derived from insights and feedback from the OMEN gaming communities. The modern gamers have a mobile screen-stacking habit, constantly communicating with their community on Twitch or watching live stream/game tips during gameplay. Gamers also use their mobile phones for messaging during gaming sessions, listen to music, and watch game related live streams, video content and browse websites. With this in mind, HP has added an unprecedented second screen to the OMEN X 2S in the form of an easy-to-use six-inch 1080p touchscreen that lets players message friends in WhatsApp, browse in Spotify, watch Twitch, YouTube, or even serve as a hub for OMEN Command Center software.
As the world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop, the OMEN X 2Sshakes the foundation of what’s expected of a gaming laptop, with tremendous multi-tasking capabilities for various activities and support with dedicated hotkeys. The OMEN X 2S, further bolstered by a real-time screen mirroring feature that can cut and magnify parts of the main screen – including copying the map portion of a racing game – to the second screen, ensures the vision is centred and head movement more vertical than horizontal.
This powerhouse is 20 mm thin with a full metal chassis and is the first 15-inch diagonal gaming laptop in the world to come with an applied liquid metal compound to the thermal system by way of Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. The path to smaller, cooler, and more powerful applies to the newest version of the OMEN 15 laptop. With a 20 per cent reduction in thickness over previous versions, it sits at a slim 20mm.
Both laptops feature OMEN Tempest, an overhauled advanced thermal solution powered by a 12V fan, which utilizes three-sided venting to enable five-way airflow to keep things ultra-cool. Realistic visuals are delivered by support for up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 features Max-Q design for the OMEN X 2S and OMEN 15. Additionally, multitasking and grand-scale games – which take mountainous resources – have never been smoother, with up to the latest 9th Gen Intel Corei9 high-performance mobile processor, powered by up to 5.0 GHz Turbo, eight cores and 16 threads, and up to 16 GB of RAM.
The new Intel Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) designed to support gigabit speeds up the wireless game with up to 3X faster file transfer speeds than Wi-Fi 5(802.11ac). Top it off with options up to an esports standard 144 Hz refresh rate 1080p display that allows visuals to flow across the screen with viper strike-like speed and NVIDIA G-SYNC on the OMEN X 2S and available on select OMEN 15 configurations.
Since its creation, OMEN Command Center has evolved as the software solution for managing and enhancing gaming hardware. The evolution continues with two additions coming to the platform for all three new OMEN devices. Performance Control cranks up fan RPM to either maximize cooling or performance, based on the chosen setting. The new OMEN Dynamic Power feature manages CPU and GPU wattage based on what a game is utilizing at a given moment to maximize FPS. Combined, these powerful additions serve to improve gameplay while also adding a level of flexibility.
Designed with a thinner frame than before, the latest HP Pavilion Gaming 15 laptop arrives with an eight per cent decrease in height over the previous model. Technological improvements across the board arrive with options up to the latest 9th Gen Intel Core i5/i7 high-performance mobile CPUs and up to the recently announced NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti with Max-Q design.
Become a cord breaker with the OMEN Photon Wireless Mouse. With a variety of customization options, including removable rests and 11 customizable buttons, it’s laboriously crafted and includes a tensioning-balance system that ensures effortless optical-mechanical mouse clicks for big and little fingers alike. To address concerns of latency, connectivity, and battery life in wireless mice, OMEN Photon features2.4 GHz Proactive Wireless Technology, 0.2ms click response time, the ability to charge on any Qi-enabled surface, and up to 50 hours of battery life.
Constructed with Qi wireless charging capabilities, the OMEN Outpost Mousepad can fully charge the OMEN Photon Mouse in 2.5 hours and works with compatible smartphones. Added adaptability comes in the form of rigorously tested hard and soft anti-fray mat options, which can be selected by simply flipping the mat to the desired side. A USB-A Passthrough port for a wireless dongle and OMEN Command Center customizable RGB LED lighting cement the capabilities of this advanced mousepad.
HP OMEN X 2S Laptop is expected to be available on July 1 via HP.com and other retailers from a starting price of Rs 209,990.
