HP Inc. displayed the company's newest 2022 gaming lineup with the next-gen OMEN 45L Desktop, the regal OMEN 25L Desktop, the small-form-factor desktop PC, the Victus by HP 15L Desktop, and HP’s first next-gen console ready OMEN 27u 4K Gaming Monitor. HP OMEN also unveils the new Cryo Chamber, an original and unique CPU cooling system.
HP OMEN introduces new desktops, including the 45L model with OMEN Cryo Chamber, a radical new CPU cooling solution, and the Victus by HP, the company's first small form factor desktop with a focus on mainstream audiences
HP OMEN 45L Desktop
The new OMEN 45L Desktop introduces the revolutionary patented CPU cooling solution with the OMEN Cryo Chamber cooling solution. The cooling compartment is placed as high as 43mm above the PC tower's interior and contains a 360mm AiO liquid cooler, resulting in temperatures 6°C (42.8°F) lower when compared to identical models without the new feature.
The OMEN Cryo Chamber brings in cooler ambient air from outside of the PC to assist in chilling the radiator instead of using air from the main interior that is actively heated by the CPU, GPU, and other computer components. For users looking for a more traditional tower design, the company released the OMEN 40L Desktop which offers the same reconfigurability as the 45L Desktop, but removes the OMEN Cryo Chamber and limits the 120mm fan by one, resulting in smaller vertical desktop space.
With more people playing than ever before, gamers have never been more diverse or vocal for products that meet their needs in customization and personalization. From our powerful desktop towers to our next-gen console ready 4K monitor, and ultimate ecosystem coverage plan, our CES line-up was designed to keep gamers social, connected, and entertained with an amazing hardware and software ecosystem that reflects their individual needs.
