HP Omen is a line of high-end gaming PCs, laptops and peripherals manufactured by HP Inc. The name comes from the former VoodooPC's line of desktops that was inherited by HP. HP also offer a lower line of gaming computers called Victus, which replaced the Pavilion Gaming in 2021.[1]

The Omen competes with Lenovo's Legion, Dell Alienware subsidiary,[2] Acer Predator and ASUS ROG series whereas the lower line Victus competes with Dell's G series, the Lenovo's LOQ, Acer Nitro, and ASUS TUF.


Initially, this line of computers was known as VoodooPC, which was founded in 1991 and known for its high computing performance. It was acquired by Hewlett-Packard in 2006,[3] and began changing its brand name to Omen in 2014 using the same tribal mask logo design until 2020 when it was changed to a simple 45° square shape.[4]

On November 4, 2014, HP launched the Omen brand as a 15-inch gaming laptop and inherited VoodooPC's tribal mask logo.[5]

In February 2021, HP acquired HyperX from Kingston and no longer produces gaming peripherals.[6][7]


In 2016, HP co-developed the OMEN X with Maingear, a cube-shaped PC with a 45 degree angled design.[8]

OMEN X 900

The HP Omen Obelisk from 2019 features a compact microATX build, equipped with Intel Core i9 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics.[9]

HP current L series desktop had co-developed with Cooler Master base on chassis and PSU.
