HP’s upcoming top-of-the-line gaming monitor, the HP OMEN Transcend, has been leaked. This monitor follows the market trend of offering an OLED panel, which means that by 2024, we will likely see a large number of OLED monitors available. However, their high prices due to the use of this technology may hinder their sales success until prices significantly decrease.
Here’s what we know about the HP OMEN Transcend with a 4K OLED panel:
The HP OMEN Transcend will feature a 32-inch OLED panel with a native 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and a refresh rate of up to 240 Hz. The panel will be capable of reaching a peak brightness of 1000 nits for an optimal HDR viewing experience, making it compatible with Dolby Vision technology. For image synchronization, it uses AMD FreeSync Premium Pro technology and may also support NVIDIA G-Sync Compatible in the future, depending on whether NVIDIA adds support for this monitor in a future graphics driver update.
The information also includes the Omen Tempest Monitor Cooling technology, which will help prevent or delay potential OLED panel burn-in. Connectivity-wise, it offers USB ports with a KVM function, allowing two PCs to be connected to the same monitor. By connecting a mouse and keyboard to the monitor, a single button enables switching between the two PCs.
In terms of video inputs, there are three options: 1x DisplayPort 2.1 and 2x HDMI 2.1, as well as many USB ports, including a USB-C capable of delivering up to 140W of power, 1x USB-C 3.2, a USB-C for data transfer (15W), and 3x full-size USB 3.2 ports.
Additionally, the HP OMEN Transcend features a noticeable software-configurable LED RGB lighting system on its back.
Along with the OLED HP OMEN Transcend monitor, HP also had HyperX peripherals leaked. It should be noted that HP purchased HyperX, Kingston’s gaming peripheral brand. A few keyboards, headphones, mice, and a controller were leaked, but their designs and features don’t seem particularly impressive, with some appearing to be of lesser quality than prior products under Kingston’s ownership. This includes the upcoming HyperX Clutch Tanto controller and the HyperX Cloud Mini headphones.
