HP today revealed its newest gaming lineup with the brand new HP OMEN 45L desktop, the refined OMEN 25L desktop, and the new Victus HP 15L desktop PC. HP also announced its next-generation console-ready OMEN 27u 4K gaming monitor. The company also updated its OMEN 16 and 17 gaming laptops and introduced a new cooling solution to improve the thermals.

The new HP OMEN 16 and 17 gaming laptops are both receiving major upgrades with the addition of the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series laptop graphics. Additionally, the new laptops will receive the latest 12th Generation Intel Core processors.

HP OMEN 45L comes with the latest CPU cooling solution from the company called OMEN Cryo Chamber. This is located up to 43mm above the main tower, and it houses the 360mm AiO liquid cooler that provides CPU temperature 6C lower at full load, according to HP. The company will also sell the OMEN 40L desktop with a more traditional tower design, and it will have the same configurable options as its larger sibling, without the OMEN Cryo Chamber.

The new OMEN 45L can be configured with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 GPU, or an AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. It also comes with a 12th Gen Intel Core i9-1200K processor or an 8-core AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU and Windows 11. Each machine can be configured with up to 64GB of HyperX DDR4 3733 MHz memory and can include two 2TB WD Black M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs on top of the usual two 2.25 SATA SSDs and two 3.5” SATA HDDs. The desktop can also have up to an 800W Cooler Master 80 Plus Gold ATX power supply with RGB colors – which users can customize in the OMEN Gaming Hub. The Gaming Hub will also enable users to undervolt the computer, and it will offer other additional features that more advanced users could take advantage of.

HP will also sell the OMEN 45L ATX Case to DIY enthusiasts with the OMEN Cryo Chamber. The case will be available for purchase in the coming weeks. The HP OMEN 45L Gaming Desktop is expected to be available from January 5 at HP.com, and soon at Best Buy. The OMEN 45L desktop will start at $1,899.99.
