CES 2023 announcements are in full swing, and HP’s gaming-focused brands aren’t missing out. The company is announcing a handful of new gaming PCs, including a new Omen 17 laptop and a couple of new desktops. And to complete your gaming rig there are a couple of new peripherals from HyperX, which is part of HP.
The first highlight of today’s announcements is the new Omen 17 laptop, which promises to be HP’s most powerful gaming laptop ever, as you might expect. It is equipped with 13th generation Intel Core HX series processors up to a Core i9-13900HX, which means that it has up to 24 cores and 32 threads. It also has the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX GPUs, although HP hasn’t specified which models are included.
Those are the upgrades you’d expect from a new generation of product, but something potentially cooler is the new keyboard. According to HP, the Omen 17 uses an opto-mechanical keyboard, a first for the company. It promises to be up to 25 times faster than a typical keyboard, which is ideal for fast-paced online games where split-second reactions make all the difference.
The refreshed Omen 17 will be available later this month with a starting price of $1,699.99.
In addition to the Omen 17 laptop, three Omen desktops are also being added to the lineup. These include the new Omen 25L, Omen 40L and Omen 45L, with these numbers representing the size of the chassis.
Both the Omen 45L and Omen 40L offer premium components. You can get up to a 24-core, 32-thread Intel Core i9-13900K paired with up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, giving you all the performance you desire. The Omen 45L actually has an advantage thanks to the integration of Omen CryoChamber, a special cooling solution that includes an all-in-one liquid cooler housed in a separate compartment at the top of the case. The Omen 40L is available with either air or liquid cooling.
The smaller Omen 25L only upgrades the CPU, which now features Intel’s 13th Gen processors, to a Core i7-13700 or a Core i5-13600K if you want something that draws more power. The K series model is available with an all-in-one water cooler, while the non-K processors have a standard air cooler. No RTX 40-series GPUs are available here, and you can step up to an RTX 3080 or go the AMD route with up to a Radeon RX 6700 XT.
The new Omen desktops are expected to be available this winter, but pricing has not yet been announced.
Omen Gaming Hub now includes GeForce Now
Along with new hardware, HP also announced a major update to the Omen Gaming Hub app that ships with its Omen PCs. Now the app integrates access to Nvidia GeForce Now so you can access cloud gaming right out of the box. HP is the first Windows PC maker to integrate GeForce Now into its PCs, and it’s quite a notable addition. Of course, most Omen PCs should be able to run games locally without any problems, but this could come in handy if you want to save space on your hard drive or if your hardware is starting to age.
HyperX peripherals and 3D personalization
HyperX is rounded off by a few new peripherals. First, the brand introduces the new HyperX Clutch Gladiate, a wired Xbox controller with dual trigger locks, remappable buttons on the back, and dual vibration motors for an even more immersive experience. The controller also has textured grips for a more comfortable and secure fit.
There’s also the new HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 gaming mouse, available in both wired and wireless versions. The mouse has a 26K DPI sensor that gives you the performance and sensitivity you need and features customizable RGB lighting with HyperX Ngenuity software. You can also use this app to customize key bindings, record macros, and more.
The wired version of the mouse weighs 53 grams and uses a flexible HyperFlex 2 cable to minimize drag when gaming. The wireless model weighs 62 grams and can be connected via Bluetooth or a custom 2.4GHz connection, promising up to 100 hours of charging.
A final announcement from HyperX is the HX3D program, which will allow HyperX to offer personalized gear for gamers using 3D printing technology. The goal is to bring customizable headsets, mice, keyboards and more to market, collaborating with brands, esports players and teams or popular streamers to create unique designs. The program begins with a limited edition Cozy Cat keycap that can be purchased and installed on most HyperX and other mechanical keyboards.
The HyperX Clutch Gladiate controller will be available in March for $34.99, while the Pulsefire Haste 2 mouse will launch in April and will be priced at $59.99 for the wired version or $79.99 for the has wireless model. The Cozy Cat keycap from the HX3D program will be available this month for $19.99, with many more designs expected to be available later this year.
