Good Gaming PC – HP Omen X Compact PC VR Backpack

Small form factor gaming performance received a massive boost with the recently released Nvidia 10 series opening new doors to what’s possible performance wise, while keeping things really small – and those talented techs at HP Omen Gaming have taken this into the immersive VR space with the latest version of the virtual reality backpack PC – designing a full kit they call the OMEN X that leaps us ahead of the ones we tried just a few months ago during Computex 2017 – and they were pretty darn good!

Packing (pun intended) a powerful 8GB GTX 1080 graphics paired with the intel i7-7820HK this small gaming PC has the got power to deliver exceptional gaming performance, punching with the same strength as much, much larger systems 🙂

The dock is a very clever addition, it not only adds functionality but also lets you keep your keyboard and mouse connected so you can dock the OMEN X and get jump straight into 4K desktop gaming as well. This convenience works both ways of course, simply take the OMEN X system out of the desktop dock, then clip it onto the super comfy backpack unit and you’re ready to dive straight into VR, making the most out of your HTC Vive with the freedom to move 🙂 They’ve also tackled battery life in a good way with two hip-mounted power packs providing enough power for a good gaming session, the kit includes 4x battery packs which are quick release as well, allowing you to hot swap quickly one by one and stay in game!

The new OMEN X Compact PC VR Backpacks will be available for everyone to try for themselves at the NZ techXpo 2017 which is set for mid-August at the Vodafone Events Centre in Auckland, come along and join the GGPC team as we get hands on with the latest and best in tech!
