HP, in Affiliation with Nvidia, has launched the Omen X Emperium monitor at CES 2019.
The expansive panel features a 120W RMS soundbar built-in and includes 4K HDR support and 384 zones of full-array neighborhood dimming backlight.
HP Omen X Emperium specifications and features
The biggest USP of the gaming monitor is its own 144Hz refresh rate and impressive 4ms GtG (grey-to-grey) response time. This is achieved thanks to Nvidia’s G-Sync HDR technology, which synchronises a monitor’s refresh rate to the update rate of the computer GPU. This minimises stutter, enhances refresh rate, and removes screen tearing.
The Omen X Emperium’s built in soundbar is rated at 120W RMS, also includes three stereo amps as well as Low Frequency Array technology which enables deep bass without another subwoofer unit. HP provides two modes for your soundbar – one for gaming, and one tuned for overall entertainment.
On the connectivity front, the Omen X Emperium features three ARC-enabled HMDI 2.0 ports along with one DisplayPort 1.4, a line-out, an optical S/ PDIF, and 2 USB charging ports. The gaming monitor also features Nvidea’s Shield TV built-in, which permits users to immediately play some Shield TV/ Android games, in addition to stream content from media streaming solutions such as Amazon Prime Video and Netflix.
HP Omen X Emperium cost, availability
The Omen X Emperium was priced at 4,999 bucks (Roughly Rs. 3,52,750) and can be set to go on sale in March at Asia Pacific. Indian pricing and availability details are unknown right now.
To recall, Nvidia announced the Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) initiative at CES 2018, with a goal to bring TV-sized 4K gaming monitors with built in SHEILD TV and large variable refresh rate to the marketplace. Acer, Asus, and HP are amongst the first companies to join this initiative.
