The HP Pavilion gaming 15-ec1010nf is a creator-oriented gaming laptop PC whose 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen adopts a frequency of 144Hz to improve fluidity in games. Lightweight, it is nevertheless powerful with its good amount of RAM and its AMD Octo Core Renoir Ryzen 7 processor which accelerates processing like the NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card capable of running as many games as possible. The responsiveness of this black computer is reinforced by the SSD storage (however limited capacity). Also on the program for this laptop is a backlit keyboard and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion gaming 15-ec1010nf
Rechargeable to 50% in 45 minutes, it has a gamer feel with its Celestial black and chrome green logo frame with angular paint finish.
Lightweight, this laptop targeting gamers and creators has good connectivity made up of Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a useful HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, audio and Ethernet ports, 1 USB 3.1 Type-C but also 2 USB including 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen is distinguished by its frequency of 144Hz. It is superior to the 60Hz standard and improves fluidity in games. In addition, thanks to its IPS technology, the screen offers a more faithful than average colorimetry as well as important vertical and horizontal viewing angles. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in bright environments (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. It is also very suitable for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition.
Performance, Battery life of the HP Pavilion gaming 15-ec1010nf
The HP Pavilion gaming 15-ec1010nf targets those who want to acquire a versatile 15-inch laptop PC performance oriented gaming and creation.
Creators will be delighted to be dealing with an Octo Core processor, in this case AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 4800H Renoir. And all the more so since it is coupled with a good amount of 16 GB RAM.
This duo indeed guarantees much faster processing than a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4 under resource-intensive work. CPU and RAM taking advantage of multicore (ex: photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering).
These components actually deliver an overall power capable of appealing to demanding users, including creators, but also gamers.
This heart supports the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti NVIDIA Turing graphics card (here in Max-Q edition ) embedded in games. It can run a maximum as long as we agree to adaptations under the most demanding titles in graphics resources to obtain good playability.
The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will also be of interest to creatives since it speeds up processing in software using GPU computing power. This is for example the case of Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
Integrated NVIDIA Optimus technology assesses graphics needs in real time based on tasks performed. It favors as much as possible operation on the Radeon Vega 7 solution integrated into the AMD Octo Core Ryzen processor despite its more modest performance (higher, however, than that of Intel UHD) because its low energy consumption promotes autonomy.
Optimus therefore activates the GeForce GeForce GTX 1660 Ti to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Vega 7, for example for gaming. Both of course allow viewing of photos and videos.
As for storage, HP offers here an SSD in phase with the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB. But compared to a hard drive, remember that an SSD is silent, more energy efficient, more robust but also much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of starts / stops, treatments and launches of games / software much faster than with a simple hard drive, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
The fact remains that 512 GB may be too fair for some. However in this case, we have the possibility of relying on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
Finally in terms of autonomy, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer which has the advantage of seeing its transport facilitated by its weight of less than 2 Kg.
However, it should be borne in mind that when it is heavily used (eg: treatments, games), this PC heats up and is heard. However, it remains content for this type of computer (gamer oriented).
