Can’t remember the last time I used a desktop PC, probably in the early 90s, but this one?
HP introduced a funky-looking desktop PC yesterday that grabbed the attention of gamers around the world. It is called HP Omen X Desktop and it is equipped with the latest CPUs and GPUs for the best gaming and virtual reality experiences.
In case you are wondering if the above picture is a “Desktop PC,” yeah, it is! It’s a cube, with two stands holding the chassis upright. The desktop itself combines air and liquid cooling to dissipate heat, its unique chassis design also provides a good ventilation system.
Specs-wise, you are looking at a 4GHz Intel Core i7 Skylake processor, 8 GB worth of RAM, an AMD Radeon RX 480 video card with 4 GB of VRAM and a huge 1,300 W power supply. On the storage side, you’d get a 256 GB SSD and a 2 TB HDD. The HP Omen X Desktop allows you to fit about 10 USB cables — two USB-C and eight 3.0.
The price? To get this beast in PC form, you would need to cough up about $1,799, (This will get you an overclockable 4GHz Core i7, 8GB of RAM, Radeon RX 480 graphics, a 256GB SSD, a 2TB hard drive and a 1,300W power supply). If you want GeForce GTX 1080 or 16GB of RAM you’d have to pay about $2,100.
So, if you are a gamer with a big budget to spend on a VR-ready desktop capable of 4K gaming, please buy the HP Omen X, then allow me to use it for a week ? (Just for review purposes oh).
