HP Inc. (HPQ - Free Report) recently introduced new gaming laptops in the OMEN series, which includes the world’s first dual screen gaming laptop, at the HP Gaming Festival in Beijing. Additionally, the company expanded in the gaming peripherals market by unveiling the HP Pavilion Gaming laptops.
The OMEN 15 and OMEN 17 laptops are 20% and 18% slimmer than previous versions, respectively. All three laptops are powered by an overhauled advanced thermal solution, OMEN Tempest.
Notably, the OMEN 17 laptop supports chips as powerful as NVIDIA’s (NVDA - Free Report) GeForce RTX 2080, which enables realistic visuals. Moreover, processors such as Intel’s (INTC - Free Report) 9th Gen Core i9 high performance mobile processor, powered by up to 32 GB of RAM, will ensure smooth multitasking capabilities.
Furthermore, HP announced several upgrades to its OMEN Command Center software by adding two powerful capabilities to enhance gamer experience and increase flexibility.

Early this year, the company also took advantage of the latest available technology by refreshing two of its best-selling OMEN PCs, the OMEN 15, and OMEN Obelisk desktop.
OMEN X 2S Provides Competitive Edge
The most notable innovation, the OMEN X 2S, flaunts a dual screen and strong multitasking capabilities. The concept of a second screen emerged with the valuable insights of the Gaming industry, which showed that 82% of gamers use their mobile phones to message, 61% listen to music, and 49% browse other websites and watch videos online during gaming sessions.
The second screen will enable gamers to use WeChat and Whatsapp for messaging, browse Spotify (SPOT - Free Report) , and watch YouTube and Twitch. The screen will also serve as a hub for OMEN Command Center software.
Last year, Asus announced Project Precog — an AI-powered dual screen notebook — which is expected to release later in 2019. In 2017, Razer had announced its triple-screen gaming laptop, which hasn’t released yet.
The dual screen gaming laptop, which will be available from June this year at $2099.99, will push HP ahead of its competitors.
With these notable announcements, HP demonstrates its efforts to create a well-engineered gaming ecosystem.
Moreover, the latest innovations and enhancements are likely to boost the company’s Personal Systems business, which is facing challenges due to Intel's CPU shortages.
