The Omen Laptop 15 comes with an undisclosed Nvidia GPU, though we have some guesses about what that may be. It will go up to a Intel Core i7-8750H and feature 802.11ax Wi-Fi, which you may also know as Wi-Fi 6. It maintains a similar design to previous laptops, as well as four-zone RGB backlighting. In July, the company will add a configuration with a FHD resolution display with a 240 Hz refresh rate and 4 millisecond response time.
The Obelisk desktop continues a trend HP set for OEM desktios of using exclusively replaceable parts. Now, there's a bigger 750W 80 Plus Platinum PSU, four DIMM slots (up from two on the existing model) that support up to 64 GB of RAM. The system now has an RTX 2080 Ti, an Intel Core i9-9900K CPU, dual SSDs with RAID0 and liquid cooling with a 120 mm radiator. The chassis is the same as the existing one, but a new addition comes in the form of a new CPU overclocking feature in the HP Omen Command Center software.
We're looking forward to getting these on our workbench after HP's March release.
