Sober for a designer-oriented gamer laptop, the HP Victus 16-e0009sf adopts a 16-inch format with Full HD IPS screen, fast SSD storage that enhances its responsiveness, backlit keyboard but also Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connectivity. This versatile laptop designed for creating and playing delivers solid performance thanks to its 16 GB of RAM and its AMD Octo Core Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne processor that speeds up multimedia processing. This is also the case for the NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing graphics card, which is also capable of supporting a number of games.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the HP Victus 16-e0009sf
It sports a relatively discreet design for a gamer-oriented laptop PC, yet adopting the codes of the genre with its black color and angular lines.
This multimedia laptop PC designed to play and create takes advantage of good connectivity including wireless Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, an output practical HDMI video for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C not to mention 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is very practical to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen adopts IPS technology and therefore has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. On the other hand, its colorimetry is average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels. In any case, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos because it is adorned with a Full HD definition coupled with a 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the HP Victus 16-e0009sf
The HP Victus 16-e0009sf may be of interest to those looking for a versatile performance under 17-inch laptop with a creative and gaming focus.
It is based on 16 GB of RAM coupled with an AMD Cezanne Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H processor. Thus, this understated black multimedia laptop delivers solid overall performance to satisfy demanding users.
Thanks to this core, we obtain, for example, much faster processing than with 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor. We particularly feel the difference under work requiring RAM and CPU resources using multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
Creators will therefore be interested in this laptop PC targeting gamers and creatives, especially since it includes the GeForce RTX 3050. Because this graphics card speeds up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power (eg Adobe Photoshop / Premiere, Sony Vegas).
The NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing is also able to support a number of games as long as we agree to settings under the opuses greedy in graphics resources to obtain a good playability.
Players and creators alike will also appreciate either integrated SSD storage. Because it guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. How? ‘Or’ What ? Because an SSD is much faster, more energy efficient, more shock resistant and silent.
In fact, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from processing, starts / stops and launches of software / games much faster than with a hard drive, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
On the other hand, the capacity of 512 GB of the integrated SSD here corresponds to the standard of hard disks, which may be too tight for some. But if you need more space, you can always rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
It should be noted that NVIDIA Optimus technology activates the GeForce RTX 3050 when the performance of the AMD Radeon Vega 8 solution integrated into the Cezanne Octo Core Ryzen 7 is insufficient to perform the desired tasks.
The Radeon Vega 8 is favored as much as possible by Optimus because it is energy efficient which promotes battery life.
In this regard, expect about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 3050 is in practice enabled to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Vega 8, for example for gaming. With either of these graphics solutions, it is obviously possible to watch photos and videos.
Finally, when pushed hard (eg treatments, games), expect this versatile laptop designed to play and create to heat up and be heard.
