Recently it has been announced that Steam will be releasing a platform for Chromebooks that will allow users to play full steam games on their Chrome OS devices. Many users wondered if this would result in gaming-focused Chromebooks and while we have seen Chromebooks released with a very “gamer” ascetic we have yet to see a true dedicated GPU Chromebook line be released.
Chrome Unboxed has learned that a new series of Chromebooks are coming that appeared to be HP gaming Chromebooks powered by dedicated new Nvidia GPUs. They did note that the details are extremely limited and how much HP is involved is unknown (if they are at all) but the excitement of a potential Omen Gaming Chromebook is not limited to just them as we would love to see such a device.
Hardware details are very limited, but it does appear that it will be 12th Gen Intel chips paired with new Nvidia GPUs to power these devices. Hopefully, more details will be released in the future as they are very limited and even an official release window is yet to exist so the product may never arrive, but the excitement that steam is generating on Chrome OS makes us believe that some level of gaming focus will happen.
