Shop OMEN by HP 45L Gaming Desktop
The best gaming PC OMEN has to offer is the OMEN 45L. There are two alternate versions - Intel® and AMD - to choose from. The Intel version is a powerhouse that is able to adapt to any gaming needs. It offers extreme performance from the start, along with the ability to easily upgrade with ample space and without the need for tools to do so.
For technical specifications, the OMEN 45L offers:
- Processor - Up to an Intel Core™ i9-12900KF
- Graphics - Up to NVIDIA® GeForce™ RTX 3080 Ti
- Memory - Up to HyperX 32GB DDR4-3467 MHz XMP RGB Heatsink RAM
- 4 memory slots
- 4 total bays for storage
- 2 expansion slots
- Multiple external I/O ports on the top and rear
The parts in this pre-built gaming PC desktop are important to take note of, as they offer great value and performance without the high price tag of other high-end parts.
Even if you’re not a tinkerer, you’ll find this is an excellent entry point for PC gaming, as its performance is above the mid-range level.
Where it stands, this OMEN desktop can cover all your needs as a PC gamer. For cooling, gamers have access to the OMEN Cryo Chamber, a patented system that uses ambient air to cool systems internally. It’s also upgradable.
The design of the computer is also notable with extensive personal customization as well. The case is tempered glass panels and a full-metal frame. You won’t even need tools to open it to make upgrades. For further customization, you can change the lighting through OMEN’s Light Studio feature which provides lighting animations or interactive effects.
In addition, the OMEN desktop also provides valuable information on its performance and can enhance other gaming experiences. You’ll have access to System Vitals, Performance Control and Optimizer tools which allow you to get insight on how well systems are performing and you can make output adjustments to fit your needs. The Optimizer by default ensures that system resources are being used optimally so there is nothing unnecessary running in the background.
For enhanced gameplay, there is Oasis Live, a secure private channel which allows up to 49 people that you pick out personally. Through this, viewers are treated to streams at 60 FPS and you have an intuitive on-screen microphone, speaker and webcam controls. You also have access to the Game Launcher, which provides quick and easy access to games.
Lastly, if you want higher performance, personalization, and better ways to play and connect, each purchase of an OMEN desktop comes with access to this hub.
With this gaming PC, gamers can jump into aPUBG or CS:GO match without worrying about thier rig keeping up.
OMEN 45L (AMD)
Shop OMEN by HP 45L Gaming Desktop
A reasonable alternative to the Intel version of OMEN 45L is the AMD option. Similar to Intel, the specifications outlined above are included with some slight modifications. AMD’s OMEN gaming desktop has its own branded processor and graphics card, as well as additional features.
AMD’s branded processor and graphics cards are a competitive option to Intel, as AMD’s cutting-edge performance comes with exclusive features. One example is the AMD Smart Access Memory technology, which enhances the PC’s graphic card memory, allowing you to enjoy the increased performance. This is notable because processors by default can only access a fraction of graphics memory at a time. This cuts into the performance of the system.
With AMD Smart Acess Memory, it bypasses that by expanding and harnessing the full potential of GPU memory. Beyond these differences, the OMEN 45L AMD version offers the same high-level quality performance and additional features as the Intel version.
HP OMEN 16 (2022)
Shop OMEN by HP 45L Gaming Desktop
While OMEN desktops are incredibly powerful, the OMEN 16 laptop is no slouch by gaming laptop standards. Fully upgradeable, this laptop is similar to OMEN’s desktops, in that even though it’s pre-built, it has the parts and looks of a computer that you built yourself.
A spec upgrade from the 2021 version, the higher-end memory, graphics, and processor offers a better gaming experience than before. The graphics are notable, as they offer Max-Q technology that provides a dynamic boost in performance, a boost in battery performance, rapid core scaling, a CPU optimizer, resizable BAR, and improved optimal playable settings
The OMEN 16 laptop is also customizable with the option to upgrade the GPU from an RTX 3050 to a 3070 Ti. The display can also be selected between a 1080p 60 Hz, 1080p 144 Hz, or 1440p 165 Hz panel.
Extreme cooling is another notable feature. OMEN Tempest Cooling Technology keeps the laptop’s internal temperature at a safe level, and provides desktop-level cooling power in a compact laptop.
And with multiple ports, you’ll have every connection you could need on a laptop, with the option for additional ports if you need more.
In order to match the awesome performance of OMEN’s gaming PCs, or improving your laptop setup, a 4K gaming monitor that can capture the experience is needed. Just with gaming computers, OMEN doesn’t skip out on the quality of its curved gaming monitors. The OMEN 27c features a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, 1 ms MPRT and 1 ms GTG with overdrive, and a 240 Hz refresh rate.
With specifications like that - and curved monitors offering 1000R curvature bends - any monitor you pick up from OMEN is guaranteed to be easy on the eyes. These monitors also have AMD Freesync Premium for smooth gaming, free of interruptions.
No gaming setup is complete without a few accessories. OMEN offers a wide selection of gaming accessories to pick from.
The OMEN Sequencer keyboard is built for speed. Due to the optical-mechanical Blue switches using light beam detection, you have a key response of 0.2 ms - 10 times faster than any traditional mechanical keyboard.
The OMEN Mindframe Prime Headset’s noise cancellation and high-quality audio make you feel as if you’re in the game. Paired with extreme comfort, it’s going to feel like you’re not wearing these headphones at all.
With the OMEN Wireless Charging Mouse Pad, you’ll enjoy lightning-quick responses and near-eternal battery life - you can expect nothing less from this wireless mouse pad. This is all thanks to the Warp Wireless technology which eliminates the wire and doesn’t take away from the performance at all.
For those looking to get into the gaming PC, a good step forward is through OMEN’s products. Due to the upgradable equipment and customization, gamers can find a setup perfect for them.
And for those looking for significant upgrades, OMEN has got that covered with plenty of products that are optimized to perform better than traditional gear or computers. Are you ready to elevate your play?
