Versatile black gamer-oriented laptop, the HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1066nf with 15-inch Full HD anti-glare screen is powerful thanks to its Hexa Core Ryzen 5 AMD Renoir processor which accelerates processing such as the GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA graphics card Turing capable of running many games. This PC benefits from enhanced responsiveness thanks to its fast SSD storage but also a backlit keyboard and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1066nf
With its frame with angular lines Celestial black logo and chrome green paint finish, it sports a clearly gamer and original design. It can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes.
It has good connectivity consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 modules to connect and communicate remotely, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, audio and Ethernet ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen lends itself well to displaying videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1066nf
The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1066nf is a versatile 15-inch laptop with a gaming and creative focus.
It delivers general performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users because it is built around 8 GB of RAM and especially a Hexa Core processor, the AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 4600H Renoir.
Thanks to the latter, for example, we benefit from faster processing than with a Quad Core in work requiring CPU resources using multicore, such as photo editing, 3D rendering or video editing, which will interest creatives.
They will also be delighted to obtain accelerated processing under software that takes advantage of the GPU computing power (eg Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, Sony Vegas) because it is equipped with the dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA Turing card.
The GeForce GTX 1650 is also able to support many games if we agree to settings under the opuses greedy in graphics resources to obtain good gameplay.
Built-in NVIDIA Optimus technology assesses graphics needs in real time based on tasks performed. It favors as much as possible operation on the Radeon Vega 6 solution integrated into the AMD Renoir processor despite its more modest performance (despite everything superior to those of Intel UHDs) because its low energy consumption promotes autonomy.
Optimus activates the GeForce GTX 1650 to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Vega 6, for example for gaming. Both, of course, allow viewing of photos and videos.
The on-board SSD storage enhances the responsiveness and fluidity of this daily PC compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of games / software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster than with a hard drive, and we reach faster on the cards of online games for example.
Here we find more precisely an SSD whose capacity of 512 GB rivals the standard of hard drives. As a bonus, the SSD is much faster while being less energy intensive, more robust and silent.
If ever 512 GB is too tight, we can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose weight under the bar of 2 Kg facilitates transport, count on approximately 7 hours of operation on battery in light use.
When it is heavily used (eg games, processing), it should be borne in mind that this computer is heard and heats up, but this remains under control for this type of PC (gamer oriented).
