HP Victus 16-d0212nf over the competition
The HP Victus 16-d0212nf is currently in campaign at HP France and offers an interesting configuration / price ratio for its category, where it is one of the only ones running under Windows 11 with such a high amount of RAM.
If this HP Victus 16-d0212nf does not meet all of your criteria, you will find other configurations to play with a similar budget in our Notebook Gaming Guide. For the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, it will have the biggest impact on performance.
Chassis, connectors, monitor on HP Victus 16-d0212nf
It has a relatively sober look for a portable gamer whose codes it still uses with its black design with angular lines.
50% rechargeable in 30 minutes, this versatile gamer-oriented and creative laptop has great connectivity options including 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, e.g. Ethernet and audio ports without forgetting 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible), which guarantees transfers that take place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
Of course, we can backlight the keys on the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in a dimly lit environment.
The screen adopts classic specifications for this type of computer with its 16: 9 format and Full HD definition suitable for video and wider for High Definition content. In addition, it has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology, which, however, is not advanced, implying standard colorimetry. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also provides better visibility in all cases than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, autonomy for HP Victus 16-d0212nf
The HP Victus 16-d0212nf is for those looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop that performs well in games and creation.
It is capable of supporting newer games because it integrates the dedicated high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing graphics card.
In addition, GeForce RTX 3060 accelerates processing under software that utilizes GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere, something that interests creative people.
The GeForce RTX 3060 is actually requested automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus prefers the Intel Iris Xe solution integrated into the processor as much as possible, although its benefits are much more modest because it is energy efficient, which promotes autonomy.
Bet in this range on about 5 hours of battery operation for easy use.
In any case, the GeForce RTX 3060 is enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Iris Xe. With one of these graphic solutions, it is of course possible to view photos and videos.
The Iris Xe is directly integrated with the Core i5-11400H, an Intel Tiger Lake Hexa Core processor that delivers solid overall performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users combined with 16GB of RAM.
If the contribution of Hexa Core is currently variable in games compared to a Quad Core, it is a fact that this core supports GeForce RTX 3060 well in games.
As a bonus, it will interest creators because it guarantees much faster processing than a Quad Core processor and 8GB of DDR4. In particular, we notice the difference in areas that use CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as photo editing, video editing, or 3D rendering.
On the storage side, there is a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in line with what hard drives offer by default. However, an SSD offers several advantages over a simple hard drive: Greater robustness, silent operation, lower energy consumption and greater speed.
Result thanks to SSD, the launch of games / software is much faster for example, just like the processing and starts / stops, and we reach the cards for online games faster. More generally, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness in use than a hard drive.
Of course, if 512 GB is too tight, you can use an external storage device. Choosing a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.
Finally, in case of severe stress (eg games, treatments), expect this creator-oriented multimedia gaming laptop to warm up and be heard.
If necessary to limit temperatures, this computer can be equipped with a ventilated support (remember to check the goals).
