    Nice to see hp providing amd and nbidia in their omen line. Are they not bowing to the gpp maybe? Or are they not part of it?

    Thought it was only AIB manufacturers, and since HP is just a systems builder they pick and choose as they want.

    Edit: I was expecting the article to read "but the 790 can be specced up to GTX 1080 or RX Vega 64" (56) but they apparently don't go higher than 580. Seems a shame. Maybe the power supply or case thermals are poor quality and they expect such parts (and 1080TIs) to become problems, or maybe they're still too damn expensive.
