HP’s Omen Graphics Accelerator is an external base with which you can transform your ultra-light laptop into a video game machine.
The concept and purpose of the HP peripheral is similar to other external graphics solutions we have seen in recent times, from Zotac, from Razer, from ASUS or the latest Aorus.
Your goal is the same. The gaming laptops are multiplying but they are very expensive machines and not all suitable for extreme games. On the other hand, there are users who need an ultraportable to move and work, but who do not dislike the execution of a video game on the desktop or need a good graphics dedicated to other computer uses. Or to improve your graphics in the future without having to change the whole laptop.
HP’s Omen Graphics Accelerator is among the cheapest in the industry. Of course, the graph you have to put you. It has a 500-watt power supply and supports graphics cards up to 300 watts, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 / GTX 1060 or an AMD Radeon RX580.
It also has a 2.5-inch bay with which to enhance the laptop, a 256 GB SSD or a hard drive of 1 Tbyte. It also has an Ethernet port, four USB 3.0 ports, a laptop charging cable up to 60 watts and a Type-C USB port.
HP’s Omen Graphics Accelerator operation is as simple as connecting the graphics accelerator Omen to a PC that has a port compatible with Thunderbolt 3, a technology that will be driven after the release of the specification and its native inclusion in Intel processors. Its price is $ 299 and will be available next August.
