As a part of its CES 2018 offerings, HP has announced a new remote game streaming solution for its Omen line of PCs. Allowing games rendered on an Omen system to be streamed to other Windows 10 PCs, this gives owners the tools to take their power on-the-go via a high-speed internet connection.
Leveraging the technology of Parsec, an established firm in the space, "OMEN Game Stream" is expected to deliver low-latency gameplay at up to 1080p resolution, at 60 frames per second (FPS). And with both game installations and save data tied to a single PC, the experience travels between devices on the go, provided a stable internet connection is available.
To get the most out of Omen Game Stream, HP is recommending users have both PCs connected via a wired connection, with at least 25 Mbps for 1080p, 60 FPS gameplay. Alternatively, games can also be streamed over WiFi, or on connections as low as 10 Mbps, although a drop to 720p resolution is offered on lower bandwidth.
While game streaming is far from a new concept in the industry, it remains to see how Parsec's tech will hold up against the competition. However, for those with Omen PCs, this will unquestionably deliver some additional value to lower-end devices, with what's shaping up to be a promising low-latency gaming experience across the world. Omen Game Stream will make is debut this Spring, as a free pre-installed service on new Omen PCs.
Adding to the Omen line, HP has also unveiled a new 65-inch Big Format Gaming Display, in partnership with NVIDIA. Other highlights include the HP Pavilion Wave with Amazon Alexa integration and the reworked HP Envy x2 leveraging an Intel processor.
