Today HP unveiled a very large box.
But that very large box can do a lot more than simply be a box, called the HP Omen External Graphics Accelerator, it has been designed to extend the graphical performance of your computer by plugging into that PC using a Thunderbolt 3 port and then attaching your selected graphics card.
It supports graphics cards from both Nvidia and AMD, and to top that off, it can even expand your PCs storage with a 2.5-inch hard drive of SSD.
When the Omen Accelerator is connected it will also be able to charge your laptop via its 500-watt power supply that uses 300 watts for the graphics card and the other watts for your laptop, all of which connects via a 60W charging lead.
And that’s not all, it also expands your laptops ports with an Ethernet jack, 4 x USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a single USB 3.1 Type-C port.
Here are the full list of features:
• The OMEN X Compact Desktop provides a factory-overclocked GPU from NVIDIA® and a versatile form-factor, creating the ability to dock and undock quickly for gaming in any room, or attach the desktop to a backpack accessory for an unparalled, untethered VR experience.
• The addition of a backpack accessory to the OMEN X Compact Desktop adds a new dimension of flexibility to the platform, and by expanding the OMEN accessory lineup with a new OMEN mechanical keyboard, a mouse with weight customization, a headset6 with cushioned ear cups to reduce background noise and mousepads designed for precision, HP is bringing attention to every aspect of the gaming experience.
• The new OMEN Desktop offers advanced thermal engineering, a modern powerful design and access to industry standard parts for easy upgradability.
• To round out the OMEN PC lineup, HP is bringing gamers new OMEN 15 and OMEN 17 laptops, with the latest high-performance graphics from NVIDIA® and AMD, high-resolution displays with optional G-Sync™ and FreeSync™ technology7 for fast refresh rates and a single-access service panel.
