At the HP Gaming Festival in Beijing, HP today announced the OMEN X 2S, the world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop. According to HP’s study, 82 percent of gamers use their mobile phones during gaming sessions, 61 percent listen to music, and 49 percent watch game related live streams, video content and browse websites. To better serve these consumers, HP has added a second screen to the new OMEN X 2S.

The second screen in the OMEN X 2S is a six-inch 1080p touchscreen which will allow gamers to chat in WeChat and WhatsApp, browse in Spotify, watch Twitch and YouTube and more. The OMEN X 2S also features a real-time screen mirroring feature that can cut and magnify parts of the main screen – including copying the map portion of a racing game – to the second screen.

Despite packing powerful specs of up to a 9th-generation Intel Core-i9 8-core CPU (with 5 GHz overclocking), NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU, 32GB of RAM and optional Intel Optane memory storage, this exciting new gaming laptop is just 20 mm thin with a full metal chassis.

HP also claims that OMEN X 2S is the first 15-inch diagonal gaming laptop in the world to come with an applied liquid metal compound to the thermal system by way of Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. The new heat system enables heat dissipation at 10 times the thermal conductivity of silicon thermal grease.

HP OMEN X 2S Laptop is expected to be available by June starting at $2099.99.
