HP Gaming Desktops Announced at CES 2022
Omen of HP 45L Desktop
Starting with the very best Omen 45L desktop, it can feature Intel’s latest 12th-generation CPUs or AMD’s Ryzen 9 CPUs along with Nvidia or Radeon GPUs. However, the USP of the Omen 45L is the new proprietary CPU cooling system called the Omen Cryo Chamber.
The Omen Cryo Chamber is a special compartment that contains all CPU cooling components and is located up to 43 cubic millimeters above the tower. It houses a 360mm AiO liquid cooler that can lower CPU temperatures by 6 degrees while the machine is running at full capacity. The system draws in cold ambient air from outside using 7 Cooler Master 120mm fans to cool the radiator instead of using the already heated air inside. The company has also released an Omen 40L desktop with a smaller footprint, similar specs, but without the dedicated Cryo Chamber and a 120mm cooling fan.
Under the hood, the Omen 45L can include an Intel Core i9-12900KF CPU or the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processor that can be paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 GPU with 24GB of GDDR6 RAM or AMD’s Radeon RX 6700XT GPU with its new Infinity Cache -technology.
Users can configure the setup up to 64 GB HyperX DDR4 RAM clocked at 3733 Mhz and connect up to two 2 TB WD Black M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs. The desktop also comes with an 800W Cooler Master 80 Plus Gold ATX power supply to support the components and the RGB lighting on the outside.
In addition, the Omen 45L Desktop comes with a tool-less design to help users upgrade. Users can access the Omen 45L desktop from three sides, including both the side panels and the front bezel. So users can easily access and change internal components without special tools or screwdrivers.
Apart from this, the Omen 45L comes preloaded with HP’s Gaming Hub software to control features such as Undervolting, Performance Mode, Network Booster and System Vitals.
Omen of HP 25L Desktop
Coming to the Omen 25L desktop, it’s an updated model of the previous 25L tower and now comes with a much sought-after Ceramic White color option, making it the first Omen desktop to feature a white color scheme. Users can also add an optional tempered glass side panel to the tower to showcase the inside, with RGB lighting controllable via the Omen Gaming Hub software.
Apart from that, the company has improved the thermal solution of the system by adding a 120mm fan on the front. Under the hood, the Omen 25L can hold the latest 12th-generation Intel Core i7 processors or the latest AMD Ryzen desktop processors. The CPU can then be paired with up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU or with up to AMD Radeon RX 6700XT GPU.
In addition, the system comes with a similar DIY design for upgradeability. It comes with a standard Micro ATX motherboard, 2x M.2 PCIe SSD slots and 1x 2.5/3.5 storage tray, 4x DDR4 memory DIMM slots, and can pack a 155mm ATX power supply unit (PSU).
Victus by HP 15L desktop
HP Victus 15L is a premium desktop computer designed for standard users. It comes with a compact tower design and a customizable RGB-based “infinity mirror” logo.
Under the hood, the Victus 15L can hold up to Intel’s 12th-generation Core i7 processors or AMD Ryzen 7 5000G series CPUs. For graphics needs, the system can sport up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU or up to AMD Radeon RX 6600XT GPU.
The Victus 15L tower setup is available in two colors, including Ceramic White and Mica Silver. The cabinet is made from post-consumer recycled plastic and water-based paint. It is also an Energy Star certified and EPEAT Silver registered machine.
