Notebooks

Large displays as well as dual-monitor setups clearly improve productivity of office workers and creative professionals. Applying this to broader markets, HP thinks that gamers could also benefit from two displays by accessing messaging or media services, or even tweak performance of their components without quitting their games. To that end, HP is rolling out a new dual-screen laptop, the gaming-focused Omen X 2S 15. In addition to a typical 15.6-inch LCD as a main display, it also sports a secondary, 5.98-inch multitouch screen. Meanwhile, the system itself is powered by crème-de-la-crème gaming hardware including Intel’s eight-core CPU as well as NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU.
