Chassis, connectors, monitor on HP Victus 16-e0308nf
With its white design with black accents and angular lines, this versatile laptop has an elegant and discreet, but also original look.
This creative gamer-oriented laptop is equipped with great connectivity options, including 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi axis (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and remotely connect wirelessly, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, e.g. Ethernet and audio ports or even 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantee transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
The Chiclet keyboard is of course fitted with a backlight solution, which is convenient so that its keys can be better distinguished in case of reduced ambient light.
The screen adopts classic specifications regarding the location of the laptop. It has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, with its IPS technology, though not High Definition, because here the colorimetry is classic. In any case, the screen is well suited for viewing videos and more generally High Definition content because it uses a 16: 9 format associated with Full HD definition. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.
Performance, autonomy for HP Victus 16-e0308nf
The HP Victus 16-e0308nf is a versatile 16-inch high-performance notebook PC designed for creation and gaming.
The overall power that this multimedia laptop provides is able to appeal to demanding users. It must be said that it is built around 16 GB RAM and an AMD Cezanne APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H processor.
In particular, this core guarantees much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor. In particular, we notice the difference during demanding work with RAM and CPU resources by utilizing multicore, such as photo editing, 3D rendering, or video editing.
Creative will be all the more interested as the dedicated Radeon RX 5500M graphics card speeds up processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas.
If you are ready to make concessions to play and you are not too demanding, you can indulge in a lot of games thanks to the Radeon RX 5500M AMD RDNA 2 Navi.
In fact, the Radeon RX 5500M and the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated into the Octo Core Ryzen 7 are used one way or the other depending on the tasks performed. Radeon Vega 8 is preferred to the maximum despite its modest performance because it uses little energy, which promotes autonomy.
Bet on the case of approximately 7 hours of battery operation with light use.
In practice, the Radeon RX 5500M is enabled to perform graphics work that is considered too heavy for the Radeon Vega 8.
On the storage side, it is an SSD which is integrated here to ensure start / stop, launch of software / games and processing much faster than a hard drive, or even a faster arrival on the cards for online games.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive, but also more energy efficient, more robust and quieter.
However, it provides a capacity similar to the standard for hard drives, i.e. 512 GB. And if it’s too reasonable? You can rely on an external storage device. Choosing a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.
Finally, when there is a lot of pressure (e.g .: treatments, games), expect this versatile laptop-oriented creation and game to warm up and be heard.
To maintain temperatures if necessary, a ventilated support can be used (remember to check the goals carefully!).
