Victus by HP debuts its first desktop in a small form factor with a mainstream audience in mind
PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 in2 – 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 gamers2. Meanwhile, 30% of new gamers are under 252 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 interests2, 80% using gaming to meet new people2, and 77% play games to say in touch with friends2.
“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.”
PROGRESSION IN DESKTOP GAMING
The OMEN 45L Desktop makes waves with a revolutionary patented CPU cooling solution dubbed the OMEN Cryo Chamber™1. This compartment is situated up to 43mm3 above the main tower interior and houses up to a 360mm AiO liquid cooler, which results in CPU temperatures 6°C lower4 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™1 and one less 120mm fan, which results in a slightly smaller vertical footprint.
Additional OMEN 45L Desktop features:

Internals keep cool with 7x Cooler Master 120mm fans with support for ARGB lighting that can be controlled within OMEN Gaming Hub.

ENGINEERED FOR GAMING PERFORMANCE AND EXPANDABILITY
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.

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.
