HP Omen X Emperium 65 will be the first Big Format Gaming Display with NVIDIA technology to reach the market. The impressive screen is designed for gamers who demand an uncompromising experience. The panel is an LCD Ultra HD type 8-bit AMVA with a 65-inch in size and Quantum Dot. The backlight is Full LED with local dimming in 384 areas, quite a large number that is hard to find even on high-end TV.
Of course, compatibility with HDR is not guaranteed even if clear information on the supported formats has not been provided (obviously HDR10 cannot be missed, we will see if others will be included). The brightness range between 750 cd / m2 – nits and 1,000 cd / m2 – nits in HDR. We then talk about a response time of 4ms GtG (from gray to gray with overdrive), a 178° viewing angle along both axes and a contrast ratio between 3200 and 4000:1.
The native refresh rate is 120Hz and can be increased to 144 Hz. The DCI-P3 color space coverage is 95%. On NVIDIA product, G-Sync technology could not be missed. The “smart” functions are based on the same platform on the NVIDIA Shield TV (Tegra X1), integrated into the display. You can take advantage of both multimedia capabilities and video-gaming applications.
The audio section is contained within a soundbar placed along the lower side. The OMEN X Emperium Soundbar is managed by three stereo amplifiers with Low-Frequency Array (LOFAR) technology. This choice should guarantee a good reproduction of the low frequencies without the aid of a subwoofer. The power supplied is 120W. There are two ways to use it: one optimized for games and the other for general entertainment.
The connectivity is very wide. We find Wi-Fi 802.11ac, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 3.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 input, three HDMI 2.0b inputs, a stereo audio output, and an optical audio output. To facilitate the connection of the devices, a sensor has been inserted that detects the movement of the hand and lights up a strip of LED placed near the doors. In this way, visibility is always optimal. HP Omen X Emperium 65 is HDR 1000 certified Display and will be available from the end of February at a price of $4,999.
