Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd1001sf
With its black design with angular lines and touches of green, this laptop PC that can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes has a resolutely gamer feel.
It is equipped with good connectivity made up of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5 for remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, Ethernet and audio ports but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard is adorned with a practical backlighting system so that the keys can be distinguished better in the event of limited ambient light.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel and is less tiring for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, autonomy of the HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd1001sf
The HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd1001sf is a versatile large form factor laptop with a creative and gaming focus.
It delivers solid overall performance able to suit a maximum of users as it integrates a Comet Lake-H Intel Quad Core i5-10300H processor coupled with a good amount of 16 GB RAM.
Faster processing is obtained with this core than with a duo combining a low-consumption Quad Core processor with 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas requiring CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as video editing, retouching photo or 3d rendering.
Creatives will therefore be able to appreciate this PC, especially since multimedia processing can also be accelerated by the dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics card using software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, for example Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
The NVIDIA Turing GeForce GTX 1650 Ti also offers the advantage of supporting a number of games as long as you agree to settings under graphics-intensive titles to obtain good gameplay.
Just like the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the Quad Core i5, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti of course allows you to view photos.
It is the on-board NVIDIA Optimus technology that automatically switches in real time between the two as needed. Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel UHD 630 despite its modest features because it favors autonomy compared to the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti.
In terms of autonomy precisely, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, this versatile laptop also benefits from SSD storage which has the advantage of clearly strengthening the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a hard drive.
An SSD is actually much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of software / games, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here the capacity of the SSD is 512 GB, which is in line with what hard disks offer as standard. However, if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, keep in mind that this versatile laptop PC heats up and is heard under heavy loads (eg processing, games), but at levels below the average for this type of computer.
