HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec2146nf chassis, connectors, display
It sports a clearly gamer design with its Celestial Black chassis with angular lines.
Rechargeable to 50% in 45 minutes is good, this versatile laptop gamer oriented creator is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless remote connections and communications, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports or its 2 USB including 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
You can backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard which is very convenient to better distinguish its keys in case of reduced ambient light.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition associated with a 16/9th format. Treated anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny slab in bright environments (ex: exterior).
HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec2146nf Performance, Battery Life
The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec2146nf is a versatile 15-inch high-definition laptop with a focus on creation and gaming.
NVIDIA Optimus technology is in the game. It switches automatically and in real time as needed between the GeForce GTX 1650 and the Radeon Vega 8 solution housed within the processor.
The Vega 8 is preferred to the maximum by Optimus in practice, while its performance is significantly lower than that of the GeForce GTX 1650, because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy. In this regard, bet about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.
The GeForce GTX 1650 is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Radeon Vega 8, typically for gaming. Of course with one or the other, you can look at photos and videos.
It is the Ryzen 5 5600H AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Cezanne Hexa Core that welcomes the Radeon Vega 8 within it. This processor is here coupled with 8 GB of RAM to deliver solid overall performance able to satisfy many users.
The Ryzen 5 5600H has the advantage of speeding up processing compared to a Quad Core, especially in CPU-intensive areas that take advantage of multi-core, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
Creators may therefore be interested in this PC, especially since the GeForce GTX 1650 accelerates processing under software exploiting GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
The GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA Turing will also be of interest to gamers because it is able to support many games for concessions under graphics-intensive games to get good gameplay.
As for storage, we are dealing with an SSD that clearly reinforces the fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. It must be said that an SSD is silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and much faster.
As a result, the SSD guarantees much faster starts/stops, processing and launches of software/games, or a faster arrival on the maps of online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in line with the standard for hard drives. But of course in case we need more space, we can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
As for heating and noise, they are present when this versatile laptop designed to play and create is heavily solicited (eg treatments, games).
