HP ‘s newest gaming accessories focus on simplicity and value
HP just unveiled a series of new gaming accessories. In particular, there are two new gaming mice, and the brand’s first 2.4 GHz wireless gaming helmet. At the beginning of June, HP is completely renewing its offers. After updating laptops for gamers, it is the turn of the peripherals that have been entered.
Two new gaming mice
The Omen Vector and the Omen Vector Essential are two different models, and correspond to two separate budgets. The first is sold at a price of $ 49.99 and the second at $ 29.99. In both cases, these are wired mice that weigh 113 and 88 grams and have six buttons.
The Omen Vector model is the high-end option of the two. It is based on an Omen Radar 3 sensor (derived from PixArt PMW3389) whose sensitivity can reach 16,000 DPI. For its part, the Vector Essential offers “only” an Omen Radar 1, with a sensitivity set at 7200 DPI. The price difference is also explained by the greater number of LEDs on the Omen Vector, and the textured rubber handle on the side (the Essential model is entirely made of plastic).
The HP X1000, the new wireless headset
It is a 7.1 headset (virtually), which can hold up to 20 hours in a row. With its USB dongle, this new model can be connected to a PC and a PS4, and probably also to a Nintendo Switch. Besides, in order not to lose it, it is possible to store it directly in the left atrium!
The X1000 has a wireless range of 10 meters and operates on a 2.4 GHz band. A full recharge of the device takes between 2 and 3 hours, via a USB charging cable. With its sound-absorbing design, HP wants to make it usable during professional tournaments.
