HP introduced the “Victus by HP” brand last year with the HP Victus 16 gaming laptop, and now we get the first Victus desktop gaming PC.
Victus is the more affordable alternative to the HP Omen series of hardware, and the Victus by HP 15L desktop PC features a compact design, but doesn’t skimp on specs. HP promises a range of configuration options, including a choice of 12th generation Intel Core i7s and the latest AMD Ryzen processors. For graphics cards, expect options up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 and a Radeon RX 6600 XT from AMD. Up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM can be installed, and while there aren’t specific details yet, I’d be surprised if there wasn’t a wide range of M.2 SSD options as well.
HP also places great emphasis on the durability of the design. The 15L uses post-consumer recycled plastic in the bezel and is both Energy Star and EPEAT Silver Register certified. Two color finishes are available – Mica Silver or Ceramic White – and HP says water-based paint is used to further raise this desk’s green credentials.

Pricing for the Victus by HP 15L desktop PC is not yet known, but HP plans to launch in February with direct sales through HP.com and availability at a number of retailers. Hopefully HP can produce enough of them, especially models with an RTX 3060 or RX 6600 XT, to meet the inevitable demand from gamers.
