HP releases a monster $5k, 65-inch gaming display

The HP Omen X Emperium is not meant to watch reruns of The Office. Though it can. This display is one of the first in Nvidia’s family of Big Format Gaming Displays. Unlike traditional large displays, these are certified by Nvidia and are said to deliver the best gaming experience through the smoothest motion.

This doesn’t come cheap. The Omen X Emperium is $5,000 and will be available in February.

Last summer Nvidia announced its intention to work with several manufacturers to produce these displays. This is one of the first to be announced and, though it costs significantly more than similar-size displays from traditional TV makers, a good chunk of gamers will likely spend the cash to gain the advantage offered by the incredible picture.

Inside the Emperium is an Nvidia chipset with Nvidia’s G-Sync HDR technology. This technology in the display syncs with an Nvidia GPU in a computer to ensure a proper refresh rate resulting in images that are sharper, more fluid and free of stutter.

The screen its utilizes HP’s fantastic Quantium Dot technology that is among the best available for desktop monitors. It even has a DCI-P3 95%, meaning it has the ability to display a massive amount of the color spectrum. The display packs a resolve rate of 144Hz — and since this display is more monitor than TV, I’m inclined to believe the claim.

Traditionally, large displays from Samsung, LG and others, often claim their displays have a fast refresh rate of 240Hz or higher. And that’s sort of true, but only because of software enhancements that can often make the image look terrible. I’ve yet to see this display in person, but I’m confident that its claims are legit.

Nvidia’s Shield TV software pack is built-into the display, giving the owner access to nearly every streaming service and a wide-range of games through Nvidia’s streaming service.

A soundbar is included with the display because good sound is nearly as important as good images.

The stunning HP Spectre x360 laptop is $500 off at Best Buy for Cyber Monday weekend — one of the best deals we’ve seen by far

After all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals we’ve seen in the past few days, we have one thing to say: We get it. Laptops are a big deal.

However, most Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals this year weren’t more than $200 off — pretty “eh” in our opinion. 

Except for Best Buy, which is offering one laptop for an insane $500 off. And it just happens to be the HP Spectre x360 — a high-end 2-in-1 that should seriously have Apple scared.

This 15.6-inch beauty packs all of the top-of-the-line specs you’d want in a premium laptop without adding bulk or weight. It’s sturdy, light, one of the thinnest on the market, and sports chromed-out copper details — basically guaranteeing you to be the biggest badass in the room. Use it as you’d use a traditional laptop, watch movies in tent mode, or completely fold it in half for taking notes, drawing, and easy one-arm carrying. (Yes, the digital pen is included. Jackpot.)

Inside, the 8th gen Intel Core i7-8550U mobile processor with eight-way processing provides high-efficiency power where you need it and reams of max-bandwidth DDR4 RAM to seamlessly run power-sucking video editing apps and keep up with hardcore gaming graphics (gaming is not the MacBook’s strong suit). Oh yeah, and those crisp graphics are displayed on a 3840 x 2160 4K touchscreen — but that’s just showing off at this point.

Drooling yet? Same. Regularly an understandably steep $1,599.99, you can save a whopping $500 and snag this beauty for just $1,099.99. (If we were you, we’d hurry — a deal this rare is likely to be gone within the next day or two.)
