Versatile, the high-performance HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd1085nf laptop PC takes advantage of a 17-inch IPS Full HD matte 144Hz screen to improve its responsiveness in games. It can run a maximum of titles thanks to its GeForce GTX 1660 Ti NVIDIA Turing graphics card which also accelerates multimedia processing as well as the fast SSD which enhances responsiveness and is seen here coupled to a hard drive for a high storage capacity of 1.2 TB. This computer also benefits from a good amount of RAM and a Quad Core i5 Comet Lake-H processor for solid performance, but also a backlit chiclet keyboard and a Wi-Fi connection ax and USB 3.1 Type-C.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd1085nf
Its shadow-black Logo and paint-finish chrome frame gives it a resolutely gamer design with angular lines. It can be recharged to 50% in 45 minutes.
The connectivity integrated into this PC is good, made up of wireless Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output for easily connect this computer to a monitor or TV, for example, Ethernet and audio ports, a USB 3.1 Type-C or even 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen improves fluidity in games because it adopts a frequency of 144Hz higher than the 60Hz standard. Thanks to its 100% sRGB and IPS specifications, the screen also has comfortable horizontal and vertical viewing angles and displays colors more faithful than the average. It is also very well suited to High Definition content and particularly to videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more restful for the eyes in prolonged use than a shiny panel and more readable in bright surroundings (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd1085nf
The HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd1085nf may appeal to those looking for a versatile performance 17-inch laptop with a gaming and creative focus.
It is equipped with the dedicated GeForce GTX 1660 Ti NVIDIA Turing card here in Max-Q edition . It is able to run a maximum of games if we agree to settings under the opuses greedy in graphic resources to obtain a good playability.
Onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology switches between the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the integrated Intel UHD 630 solution in the processor, automatically depending on the tasks performed. Despite its very modest performance, the Intel UHD 630 is favored as much as possible by Optimus because it is energy efficient and therefore implies better autonomy. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is therefore activated to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the UHD 630, both of course allowing you to view photos and videos.
By the way, creatives will appreciate getting processing accelerated by the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power. This is particularly the case with Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
Built around an Intel HM470 chipset, the heart of this computer supports the GTX 1660 Ti well in games. It also delivers solid overall performance to satisfy a maximum of users.
A good amount of 16 GB RAM coupled with a Quad Core i5-10300H Comet Lake-H processor is indeed integrated.
This duo guarantees much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a low-consumption Quad Core processor, particularly under work requiring RAM and CPU resources using multicore, such as video editing, photo retouching or 3D rendering.
Both players and creators will appreciate the on-board capacity of 1.2 TB higher than average. It consists of a hybrid solution combining a 256 GB SSD to house the main games / software in addition to the OS, to a hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB to accommodate the rest, fast with its speed of 7200 rpm versus 5400 rpm as standard.
Finally, with regard to the autonomy of this computer, which should be expected to be noisy and to heat up when it is strongly pushed (ex: games, treatments), expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
