HP Inc. today revealed its newest gaming lineup with the revolutionary OMEN 45L Desktop, refined OMEN 25L Desktop, powerfully small footprint Victus by HP 15L Desktop, and HP’s first next-gen console ready OMEN 27u 4K Gaming Monitor. The company also updated its OMEN 16 and 17 Laptops and introduced a new coverage plan to help protect a player’s gaming ecosystem. Gaming isn’t just growing, it’s a constantly evolving part of today’s culture that’s led to 2.7 billion people plugging in – nearly 35% of the global population. Women are playing a critical part in the development and progression of this space, making up 60% of all new gamers. Meanwhile, 30% of new gamers are under 25 years of age, showing that it’s taken firm hold as a generational form of entertainment and social connection being passed down.
In fact, the social aspect behind gaming is a primary reason to play with 84% of gamers stating they play to connect with others of similar interests, 80% using gaming to meet new people, and 77% play games to say in touch with friends. “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,” said Josephine Tan, Global Head and General Manager, Consumer PCs at HP Inc. “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.”
The OMEN 45L Desktop makes waves with a revolutionary patented CPU cooling solution dubbed the OMEN Cryo Chamber. This compartment is situated up to 43mm above the main tower interior and houses up to a 360mm AiO liquid cooler, which results in CPU temperatures 6՛C lower at full load over an identical model without this feature. It works by pulling in colder ambient air from outside the desktop to cool the radiator instead of utilizing air within the main interior actively heated by the CPU, GPU, and other components. For those who opt to go with a more traditional tower design, the recently released OMEN 40L Desktop has all the same configurability as its larger sibling, without the OMEN Cryo Chamber and one less 120mm fan, which results in a slightly smaller vertical footprint.
Additional OMEN 45L Desktop features:
- Supreme Performance: Watch virtual worlds come to life with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 GPU with 24GB GDDR6X memory or an AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT with all-new Infinity Cache technology, both with a unique OMEN visual design. Gameplay flows ultra-smooth with up to the latest 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900K processors5 or 8-core AMD Ryzen 9 5900X processors6 both top coated with Shin-Etsu MicroSi Extreme Thermal Paste.

- Top-Tier Components: Easily multitask games and a multitude of apps with up to 64GB of HyperX DDR4 3733 MHz memory and provide games the quick asset access they need with up to 2x 2TB WD Black M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs8 on top of additional storage support for 2x 2.5 SATA SSDs and 2x 3.5” SATA HDDs. Stable and reliable power flows into the PC with up to an 800W Cooler Master 80 PLUS Gold ATX PSU to keep the games running and the RGB cycling. Internals keep cool with 7x Cooler Master 120mm fans with support for ARGB lighting that can be controlled within OMEN Gaming Hub.
- Expansive Bliss: Upgrading components couldn’t be easier thanks to the toolless front and side panels with side cover locks to keep the panels secure. The chassis also supports up to a full ATX motherboard, triple-slot full length graphics card, and up to 200mm ATX PSU.
- Ultimate Control: Ships with OMEN Gaming Hub preinstalled to take advantage of powerful internal features like Undervolting9, Performance Mode, Network Booster, and System Vitals to help games run sublime. Additionally, access to other features, such as Coaching, Rewards, Oasis Live10, and OMEN Light Studio raise gaming experiences in new and exciting ways.
Enthusiasts who love to DIY a computer from the ground up made up 19% of the total PC gaming hardware market11 opposite branded systems and peripherals as little as two years ago. To support this critical segment the, the OMEN 45L ATX Case – complete with the innovative OMEN Cryo Chamber – will be available to purchase in the coming weeks.
Introduced last spring, the OMEN 25L Desktop gave gamers a reimagined tower with refined thermals and a tool-less design in a tower that’s simple yet sleek. Today the aesthetic of the desktop is further enhanced with a much-requested Ceramic White color option – a first for an OMEN Desktop – along with an optional tempered glass side panel to highlight the gorgeous interior, which features RGB lighting via OMEN Gaming Hub.
Thermals have been further improved with the addition of a 120mm front fan. As powerful as ever, gamers can breeze through the latest hits with graphics powered by up to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or up to the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card. When paired with the computing strength of up to the latest 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, or up to the latest AMD Ryzen processors, this desktop is ready to handle any game thrown at it.
With the reveal of Victus by HP earlier this summer, gamers were introduced to a brand that focuses on helping anyone outplay the ordinary in their gaming adventures. The Victus by HP 15L Desktop is the line’s first desktop and features a compact design with two color options in Mica Silver and Ceramic White, along with the introduction of the eye-catching, customizable RGB “infinity mirror” logo that’s sure to make anyone stop and gaze. Complete with stellar internal power with up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti or up to the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card. Meanwhile, new 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, or up to the latest AMD Ryzen 7 5000G Series processors6 and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM ensure players won’t skip a beat.
The OMEN 27u 4K Gaming Monitor debuts as both OMEN’s first HDMI 2.1 and first next-gen console plug-and-play ready gaming monitor.

Today as part of the International Consumer Electronics Show, Intel demonstrated advancements and momentum with Mobileye, progress toward discrete graphics leadership, and the launch of the newest members of the 12th Gen Intel Core family. With these milestones, Intel furthers its commitment to enable the industry and its customers and partners to harness the technology superpowers – ubiquitous computing, cloud-to-edge infrastructure, pervasive connectivity, and artificial intelligence – at the heart of the digital transformation.
During the Intel news conference, Gregory Bryant, executive vice president, and general manager of the Client Computing Group, was joined by Lisa Pearce, vice president of the Visual Compute Group, and Prof. Amnon Shashua, Mobileye CEO, to share Intel’s progress across multiple strategic businesses.

Lenovo Launches New Yoga PCs
Lenovo has unveiled its seventh generation of Yoga 2-in-1 laptops with its new 14-inch flagship convertible laptop the Lenovo Yoga 9i, the ultra-portable Yoga 7i in 14-inch and 16-inch, and the 13-inch eco-friendly Yoga 6 made with recycled materials. This year at CES, Lenovo also announced three new Q-series consumer monitors, the Lenovo Q27h-20, Lenovo Q27q-20, and Lenovo Q24i-20.

The new laptop has been verified via the Intel Evo platform to deliver a super-fast boot up from virtually anywhere you use your laptop.

It also comes with up to 4K OLED IPS touchscreen with slim bezels, also VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Black certified for 100 percent DCI-P3 color accuracy and optimized by Dolby Vision.
It comes in 16:10 format for less scrolling and a 60Hz refresh rate for everyday computing. The TÜV Low Blue Light certification means it’s specially calibrated to help reduce eye strain. It comes with an edge-to-edge keyboard design layout offering a bar of new 1-Click Function Keys with five additional shortcut keys marked with user-friendly icons for quick access to frequently used features, such as:
- A shortcut to shifting into Smart Power performance mode that enables higher performance or longer battery life depending on what you’re doing at the time – without having to remember the previous combination of Fn+Q keys. Just look for the performance icon to enable Smart Power that optimizes system battery life and cooler thermals with up to 28W TDP and a 75Whr battery.
- The clever Background Blur function instantly helps to protect the privacy of one’s surroundings on video calls via Microsoft Teams or other collaboration platforms with just a click; to show a clear image of you and your background once more, just press the key again.
The soundbar built into Yoga 9i’s 360-degree hinge provided Lenovo’s design and engineering teams with the unique opportunity to add a smarter Audio mode changing function key that we call Vibe Check, that helps users better perceive differences between nuanced audio profiles for a more satisfying listening experience for practically any type of entertainment. Choose from music mode to gaming mode or movie mode for a greater sound effect that doesn’t kill the vibe.
In addition to smart sense lighting that auto-adjusts the keyboard’s backlighting based on ambient light, there’s the Color mode key that makes it easy for users to switch their system appearance between dark and light mode via Windows’ native color settings feature to see which works best. Besides giving your eyes a break, enabling dark mode for an OLED display can potentially help preserve the life of the battery, and it comes in handy in low-lit environments.
In the same column of keys, you’ll discover that the Fingerprint reader was placed here instead of where your wrists typically hit the palm rest for added comfort and a cleaner appearance. It also has an FHD infrared (IR) camera with convenient smart login and electronic privacy shutter.

It’s the first thin and light laptop SKU of its kind from Lenovo to be targeted for Intel Evo verification3 with advanced graphics, remarkable TDP 60W performance, up to 100Whr battery capacity, and Rapid Charge Express.
Intuitive design, technology, and fashion are all changing, and in some cases starting to merge together, and in case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a lot of talk about the environment right now. And in many ways, Lenovo is ahead of the curve with the new Yoga 6 (13”) convertible laptop that was inspired by all the ways we make choices in our daily lives that affect the environment.
Living more sustainably can start with simply choosing a 2-in-1 laptop in Dark Teal hue made with recycled materials, including a cover made from recycled aluminum, or a fabric-wrapped cover option made with 50 percent recycled plastics and treated with a stain-resistant finish for resilience.
Just think, that plastic bottle in the recycling bin today could be used to help make two fabric covers tomorrow. Thirty percent of recycled plastics were used in the power adapter. The Yoga 6 is also free of mercury, arsenic, and brominated flame retardant (BFR) free, and comes ENERGY STAR certified and EPEAT Silver certified for meeting energy-saving and environmental standards.
Besides being more eco-friendly, this lightweight convertible is powerful with AMD Ryzen 7 5700U Mobile Processor and integrated AMD Radeon Graphics built on leading 7nm technology to deliver ultra-fast performance via up to 8 powerful cores, good value with sleek Windows 11 user experience, and a hyper-efficient battery life6 plus Rapid Charge Boost.

Ideal for everyday usage with an integrated phone holder and smart speaker to reduce desk clutter, its distinctive asymmetric metallic arm can be adjusted to match your viewing height for maximum comfort.
Plus, a solid Terrazzo grey base brings stability and that extra feeling of luxury consumers have come to expect from Lenovo design. Also on offer bringing modern families, the smarter value choices they crave wrapped in a gorgeous package are two more Q-series consumer monitors – the larger 27-inch Lenovo Q27q-20 with up to QHD resolution, and the 23.8-inch Lenovo Q24i-20 with up to Full HD.
For individuals looking for a wireless mouse with a premium look and feel to boost productivity, look no further than to the ultra-portable Yoga Mobile Mouse with low-profile, or the new Yoga Performance Mouse with ergonomic high-handed design and programmable buttons. Available in Cloud Grey and Dark Teal hue to complement new Yoga devices, they’re built with three adjustable settings for higher sensitivity of up to 2400 DPI, plus a dynamic scroll wheel with dual speeds.
Both fully-functional mice deliver users with the accuracy of an IR sensor, a dual-host Bluetooth connection for greater precision, and a long-lasting integrated battery that’s easily recharged via USB-C port to make low-battery notifications a thing of the past. And if the look of fewer wires is appealing, instead of cluttering your home office with several random chargers, why not upgrade to an elegant on-table solution that enables the simultaneous charging of up to four devices, including the new Yoga mice.
Meet the compact Lenovo Go 130W Multi-port Charger that aims to remedy consumers searching for an open port via a single charging hub that offers three USB-C power delivery ports with up to 100W laptop charging and one USB-A port with quick charging up to 18W.
