HP's new Omen 25L and 30L desktop PCs include some all-AMD options
The HP OMEN 30L and the smaller 25L are available in a variety of configurations with Intel and AMD processors combined with Nvidia and AMD graphics cards. While the popularity of OEM configurations using AMD Ryzen CPUs has been rising (pun not intended), they usually are only paired with Nvidia GPUs.
This limit of choice is disappointing because AMD’s current Navi cards are competitive in the mid-range. The RX 5500 XT sits around the GTX 1650 Super, the RX 5600 XT performs in line with the RTX 2060, and the RX 5700 / 5700 XT jump around the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super depending on the game being tested.
In addition to AMD's CPU options all being overclockable, two of the Intel models are the overclocking capable k-series. All memory is Kingston HyperX, the M.2 NVMe storage drives are from Western Digital, and the power supplies are Cooler Master 500 W bronze models except for the most expensive i7 version which uses a Cooler Master 750 W Platinum model.
The eight highlighted configurations are in the table below:
