Confirming an ever-increasing interest in high-end gaming notebooks (just look at the news presented at CES 2019), HP is expanding its catalog and announcing today the new lineup driven by the top of the range OMEN X 2S 15, the first gaming laptop to be equipped with dual display. Optimized to guarantee top performance, especially in the multitasking field, OMEN X 2S uses a 15 “main display (refresh up to 144 Hz and optional G-Sync support), while on the upper part of the keyboard integrates a second 6” Full display -HD touchscreen, ideal for managing any other application without having to interrupt the gameplay.
The new HP notebook uses a metal chassis, with a thickness of 20 millimeters and a weight of 2.34 kg; the design is appealing, not too exaggerated, and a gaming keyboard with RGB backlighting is provided. The cooling system, which includes a liquid metal-based component, is very nice; according to HP, this approach achieves 10 times more heat dissipation (CPU / GPU) than the common thermal grease paste.
Moving on to the hardware configuration, HP OMEN X 2S 15 uses the latest Intel Core processors with options up to the most powerful Core i9; this is complemented by 3200 MHz DDR4 memories, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (Max-Q) graphics and PCIe storage with optional RAID and support for the latest Intel OptaneTeton Glacier. The equipment is completed by a discrete expansion section with options for USB 3.1 Type A, Thunderbolt 3 (via USB-C), HDMI 2.0b, WiFi and Gigabit LAN and Audio Bang & Olufsen with DTS X.
HP OMEN X 2S 15 will be available from June with a price starting at $ 2099;
