According to the HP slides, the Omen brand targets the performance gamer with an emphasis on delivering maximum gaming performance per dollar.
Based on a brief overview provided to Digital Trends by HP, this developer kit includes two USB Type-A ports, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, one HDMI port, one audio combo jack, one DC output jack for headphone power, two battery DC input jacks, and one DC input jack for connecting the desktop to a wall outlet.
The hardware is housed inside a rounded back chassis with a checkered triangular pattern on the side facing away from the user s back.
Also note that Oculus VR actually recommends desktops with three USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 port, along with HDMI output, meaning Oculus Rift owners might not achieve the optimum experience when using the Omen X backpack PC.
Given this model is indeed a developer kit, HP has no idea when a final product will be shipped to consumers.
However, a representative told Digital Trends that the company will begin showing the VR backpack in demos within the next month.
