The PC market today is largely focused on laptops, so it is unusual to see a powerful new all-in-one PC. HP is announcing exactly this week at CES 2020 with its new Envy 32 AiO. It comes with a 31.5-inch 4K screen suitable for HDR600 (600 nits) and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 (Max-Q) inside. It is the first all-in-one PC to be certified as part of Nvidia’s RTX Studio program, which means it can use the RTX cores in supported applications for accelerated ray tracing and AI workloads.
HP also includes 65W Intel 9th generation Core i7 processors, up to 32 GB RAM and up to 1 TB SSD storage. HP claims the Envy 32 AiO has the world’s widest 4K screen in an all-in-one, thanks to a 92.8 percent screen-to-body ratio and edge-to-edge glass. It is also ‘the first PC in the world’ with an HDR600 screen and also has a contrast ratio of 6000: 1.
Aside from the brutal power, HP has also added some useful features if you are a fan of audio or wireless charging. In yet another ‘worldly’ claim, HP claims that the Envy 32 AiO is the ‘loudest all-in-one in the world’, thanks to built-in front-firing tweeters and a subwoofer tuned by Bang & Olufsen. You can even stream music to these PC speakers when the machine is turned off. HP has also changed the basis of this all-in-one PC to a Qi wireless charging station that works even when the PC is turned off.
HP’s Envy 32 AiO is available today from $ 1,599.99 on the HP website.
