Dri­ving Gamers For­ward

OMEN Com­mand Cen­ter4 — which is avail­ab­le for any Win­dows 10 PC via the Win­dows Store — is leve­ling up with a host of power­ful new fea­tures desi­gned to make it a cen­tral gaming hub.

  • With Rewards Beta5 (powe­red by Ver­sus Sys­tems) laun­ching in the U.S., gamers can earn pri­zes play­ing the games they love, while impro­ving their skills and com­pe­ting with others.
  • Coa­ching6 arri­ves for OMEN PCs with initi­al sup­port for League of Legends and more games on the road­map. This AI-based tool (powe­red by Moba­ly­tics) ana­ly­zes game­play and pro­vi­des key insights into strengths and weak­nes­ses to impro­ve play­er per­for­mance.
  • With My Games7, gamers can mana­ge their devices and access their game libra­ries from one cen­tral loca­ti­on, pro­vi­ding quick and easy access to their favo­ri­te games.

Esports Speeds and Visu­als

The new OMEN X 27 makes a splash with a Quad HD2 (2560 x 1440) reso­lu­ti­on dis­play that show­ca­ses stun­ning high dyna­mic ran­ge and DCI P3 90 per­cent color gamut1 for an immer­si­ve gaming expe­ri­ence. To keep up with the FPS that high-end PCs mus­ter and esports ath­le­tes requi­re, the dis­play rocks an indus­try-lea­ding 240Hz refresh rate1 with a 1ms respon­se time1 and is AMD Rade­on Free­Sync™ 2 HDR9 cer­ti­fied to ensu­re the game screen is clean of tearing even when play­ing games in HDR mode. This ties up with a bold and eye-catching design thanks to three micro-edge bezels, a full metal height adjus­ta­ble stand, and ambi­ent ligh­t­ing that can be con­trol­led via OMEN Com­mand Cen­ter4 along with the new paten­ted aim assist fea­ture for a reti­cle that can be cus­to­mi­zed by shape and color.

 

Acces­so­ri­ze with Excel­lence

The new OMEN Mind­frame Prime Head­set inclu­des several com­pel­ling enhan­ce­ments. The revo­lu­tio­na­ry active coo­ling fea­ture via Frost­Cap Tech­no­lo­gy incor­po­ra­tes a pas­si­ve coo­ling fea­ture thanks to a new­ly added gra­phi­te heat spre­ader which takes advan­ta­ge of the enlar­ged ear­pads10. The built-in 7.1 sur­round sound powe­red by C‑Media Xear™ crea­tes rea­listic spa­ti­al awa­reness to accu­rate­ly pin­point in-game sounds. Added envi­ron­men­tal noi­se can­cel­ling (ENC) micro­pho­nes block out extra sound in the room so your voice comes through clear in the heat of batt­le. Last­ly, the new OMEN Audio Lab wit­hin OMEN Com­mand Cen­ter4 gives full con­trol of the lis­ten­ing expe­ri­ence with a 10-band equa­li­zer that has a varie­ty of pre­sets, audio level cus­to­mi­za­ti­on and on/off swit­ches for the 7.1 sur­round sound and ENC micro­pho­nes.

With a blue switch mecha­ni­cal key­board cur­r­ent­ly avail­ab­le in the OMEN 1100 Key­board, the new OMEN Enco­der Key­board will come with both Cher­ry MX Red and Cher­ry MX Brown Swit­ches for tho­se who want incredi­b­ly fast and smooth ope­ra­ti­on or some­thing that’s quie­ter and has a litt­le bump in the tra­vel path. Com­ple­te with 100 per­cent anti-ghos­ting with n‑key roll­over and OMEN Com­mand Cen­ter4 inte­gra­ti­on both key­board opti­ons are built to win.

 

Tra­vel and Game in Style

Pro­vi­ding high qua­li­ty life­style pro­duc­ts is a con­stant focus for OMEN and has been show­ca­sed recent­ly with OMEN Appa­rel and the ori­gi­nal OMEN X Trans­cep­tor back­pack. The Trans­cep­tor line from OMEN con­ti­nues this trend with the new addi­ti­ons of the OMEN Trans­cep­tor 17.3” Duf­fel Bag15” Roll­top Back­pack15” Back­pack to pro­vi­de a wide varie­ty of tra­ve­ling opti­ons. This is top­ped off with the OMEN Trans­cep­tor Head­set Case, which matches up with the new OMEN Mind­frame Prime Head­set.

 

Excep­tio­nal Main­stream Gaming

The Pavi­li­on Gaming Desk­top makes expan­da­bi­li­ty a clear empha­sis wit­hin a new space-saving 15L design.

The latest Pavi­li­on Gaming 15 is the first AMD CPU gaming lap­top from HP and fea­tures up to Ryzen™ 7 pro­ces­sor12 wit­hin a bold angu­lar black chas­sis. With up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1660Ti with Max‑Q13 design gra­phics, micro-edge bezels with 144Hz or 60Hz1 1080p14 dis­play opti­ons, immer­si­on is the name of the game. Dual fan, wide rear cor­ner vent, and enlar­ged air inlets maxi­mi­ze air­flow to opti­mi­ze over­all per­for­mance, while kee­ping the machi­ne cool during exten­ded usa­ge. Built for depen­da­ble game ses­si­ons, con­tent crea­ti­on, and out­fit­ted with a Wi-Fi 5 opti­on sup­por­ting Giga­byte speeds, this high­ly por­ta­ble lap­top is built for work and play.

No desk­top is com­ple­te wit­hout a key­board and the Pavi­li­on Gaming Key­board 800 fea­tures quiet, yet quick red mecha­ni­cal swit­ches com­ple­te with 100 per­cent anti-ghos­ting with n‑key roll­over, a com­for­ta­ble detach­a­ble wrist rest and four-zone LED ligh­t­ing with on-the-fly back­lit modes.

The­se addi­ti­ons to the Pavi­li­on Gaming eco­sys­tem pair bril­li­ant­ly with the new HP 22x and HP 24x gaming dis­plays. Both come with a spee­dy 144Hz refresh rate1 and 1ms respon­se time1, AMD Rade­on™ Free­Sync™ tech­no­lo­gy9, high-qua­li­ty inte­gra­ted speakers and adjus­ta­ble stands.
