The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1141nf is a versatile gamer and designer oriented laptop PC with a 15-inch Full HD anti-glare display. It can run many games with its GeForce GTX 1660 Ti NVIDIA Turing graphics card which also speeds up processing like its AMD Octo Core Renoir Ryzen 7 processor and its good amount of 16 GB RAM. Thanks to its fast SSD storage, this lightweight computer benefits from enhanced responsiveness. Also on the program for this creative black gaming laptop PC is a backlit keyboard and USB-C connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1141nf
It sports a clearly gamer design with its frame with angular lines Celestial black logo and chrome green paint finish.
The connectivity built into this gaming laptop, which can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output for connecting it to a TV or a monitor for example, Bluetooth 5.0 modules and Wi-Fi ac for wireless communication and remote connection, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 2 USBs 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.
The keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical to distinguish them in a dark environment.
With its 16: 9 aspect ratio and precise Full HD definition, the screen is well suited to displaying videos and more generally High Definition content. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, it also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. On the other hand, the screen adopts TN technology, not IPS. Its colorimetry is average as are its viewing angles.
Performance, battery life of the HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1141nf
The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1141nf may be of interest to those looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop that performs well, is gaming and creative oriented.
The overall power it delivers is able to satisfy demanding users as it relies on a good amount of 16 GB RAM and an AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 4800H Renoir processor.
Thanks to these components, we benefit from much faster processing than with 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor. We particularly feel the difference in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources using multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing, which will be of interest to creatives.
They will also appreciate that their processing is accelerated by the dedicated graphics card GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA Turing onboard, and this under software taking advantage of GPU computing power.
Gamers will also be delighted because the GeForce GTX 1650 is capable of running many games with adaptations under the opus demanding in graphics resources to obtain good gameplay.
On-board NVIDIA Optimus technology activates the GeForce GTX 1650 when the performance of the AMD Radeon Vega 7 solution housed within the Renoir Octo Core Ryzen 7 proves insufficient to perform the desired tasks.
More efficient than the UHD 630 of Intel processors, the Vega 7 is preferred as much as possible by Optimus because it is energy efficient which promotes battery life.
In this regard, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce GTX 1650 is therefore activated to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Vega 7, for example to play. With either of these graphics solutions, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
In games and under treatment but more generally on a daily basis, the onboard SSD storage clearly reinforces the responsiveness of this PC compared to a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we take advantage of much faster processing, such as starts / stops and launches of games / software, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It should be remembered that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent.
With its 512 GB, the SSD rivals the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity.
What if we need more? You can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
As for the transport of this laptop oriented gamer and creator, it is facilitated by its weight contained to less than 2 kg and its finesse.
When it is strongly pushed (eg: treatments, games), it must be kept in mind that this PC heats up and is heard, but this remains content for this type of PC (gamer oriented).
