HP surprises with a strong commitment to gaming at CES 2022

One of the biggest players in the gaming field of this CES 2022 without a doubt is being HP. And it is that to the great deployment of its HyperX sub-brand, a whole flood of presentations and new products of the main brand is added, with its new line of desktop computers OMEN 45L, OMEN 25L and Victus by HP 15L, the first OMEN gaming monitor Next-gen 4K 27u, and an upgrade to its OMEN 16 and 17 laptops.

Starting with the desktop, the OMEN 45L comes with an interesting and revolutionary proprietary CPU cooling solution called OMEN Cryo Chamber, a compartment is located up to 43 mm above the interior of the main tower that houses a 360 mm AiO liquid cooler, offering CPU temperatures up to 6 ° C lower than an identical model without this feature.

This system works by drawing the cooler ambient air from outside the PC to cool the radiator rather than using the main interior air actively heated by the CPU, GPU, and other components. For those who opt for a more traditional tower design, the recently launched OMEN 40L Desktop has all the same configurability as its bigger brother, without the OMEN Cryo Chamber and a 120mm less fan, resulting in a vertical footprint. slightly lower.

Although we can not ignore the rest of its configuration, equipping some last generation internal components with the latest Intel Core i9-12900K and AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processors and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 and AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT GPUs; With up to 64GB HyperX 3733MHz DDR4 memory and 2 WD Black M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs (plus additional storage support for 2 x 2.5 SATA SSDs and 2 x 3.5 ”SATA hard drives).

However, if we instead opt for one of the minor configurations, we can always update this equipment later. Access to components couldn’t be easier thanks to tool-less accessible front and side panels with side cover locks to keep panels secure.

A design that we will see repeated in the OMEN 25L, re-imagined with an aesthetic with a ceramic white color option (created at the request of OMEN fans) alongside with an optional tempered glass side panel to highlight the interior and RGB lighting. Thus, this desktop will also have a renewed cooling system, with improved temperatures thanks to the incorporation of a 120 mm front fan.

Going inside, we can also find important changes, enhanced with a configuration up to the latest 12th Gen Intel Core i7 and AMD Ryzen 6 processors, along with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics, making this a desktop computer perfectly prepared to handle any next-generation game without problems.

HP Victus 15L

On the other hand, the company has also taken the opportunity to present the new Victus by HP announced earlier this summer. Thus, the Victus by HP 15L arrives as the first desktop in this new range, with a compact design and two color options in silver and ceramic white, along with the introduction of the eye-catching customizable RGB ‘infinity mirror’ logo.

A size that should not teach us, since it is a PC powered by the new 12th generation Intel Core i7 and AMD Ryzen 7 5000G6 series processors, with up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics.

In addition, this case uses a sustainable design that includes post-consumer recycled plastic on the bezel and water-based paint, as well as being Energy Star certified and EPEAT Silver registered.


And what better way to accompany any of these computers than with the new OMEN 27u 4K gaming monitor, OMEN’s first HDMI 2.1 and the company’s first plug-and-play gaming monitor for next-generation consoles.

As its name suggests, this monitor has a 27 IPS panel with a UHD 4K resolution at 120 Hz, compliant with VESA DisplayHDR 400, 95% DCI-P3 standards, with up to 450 nits of brightness and true 8-bit color to see games as the developers intended. It also comes with Eyesafe certified HP Eye Ease to reduce eye strain while gaming.

It is also the first OMEN monitor to come with a four-sided micro-bevel design, leaving a more extensive screen sensation to increase the immersion in the game, at the same time that it is posited as a very interesting alternative for multi-screen configurations.

Furthermore, OMEN’s diamond-shaped ARGB lighting on the rear adds spectacular ambience to any setup and features customizable animations and themes that can sync your entire ecosystem through OMEN Light Studio.

By last, OMEN 16 and OMEN 17 laptops They are getting major updates with the addition of the latest GeForce RTX 30-series notebook GPUs, as well as the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors.
