HP has launched a new style of gaming laptop for gamers who don’t want to compromise on their gaming while they are performing so good. For them, HP brings a new dual-screen laptop in its Omen series called the Omen X 2S and as its profile describes, the device includes an additional screen above the keyboard that will allow the gamers to chat in WeChat and WhatsApp, watch Twitch and YouTube videos while playing on the main screen. HP says it's meant for "affluent gamers" who demand "the latest tech to optimize their experience."
The secondary screen is 6-inch 1080p touchscreen display and the primary screen holds a 15-inch display panel with a 144Hz refresh rate. It also comes in more variants with options to choose a 240Hz model or even a 4K HDR version.
While the dual-screen laptops aren’t new, this kind of profile from HP is definitely new that could prove itself as a better option over others. You can call it a giant version of Apple’s Touch Bar but it has a secondary screen which can run pretty much every app. Hard-core gamers use dual-screen rigs so as to watch Twitch streams while they’re playing games.
The need for secondary display also arises when one needs to follow YouTube tutorials. So, here HP’s Omen X 2S might come as an omen for the gamers as the secondary display is built-in and they don’t require any additional setup for the same. Another best use of this secondary display installed above the keyboard is to keep an eye on your CPU and GPU performance while you’re reaching the max levels of your configurations.
HP has included 9th-gen Intel Core i9 8-core processors, alongside up to 32GB RAM and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU. HP has made use of a special cooling system for the Omen X 2S that involves a liquid metal compound that’s applied to the CPU and should help with heat dissipation and performance. And according to HP’s claims, this thermal solution can help in boosting the performance by up to 28 percent.
HP OMEN X 2S Laptop is expected to be available by June starting at $2099.99.
