HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf over the competition

The HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf is now available on HP France and is ranked as one of the most powerful in its category in terms of processor and graphics and one of the only ones offering such a high resolution screen.

Chassis, connectors, monitor on HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf

Open 360 ° to convert to a tablet, this laptop with dark black aluminum design, pale brass accents and sandblasted finish has an elegant, sober but also original look.

Its screen is adorned with multi-touch tactile technology: by simple presses / movements with at least one finger applied to it, you can interact with the system and the software.
A Corning Gorilla Glass protective layer covers the plate, which means bright colors and greater sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a classic anti-reflective plate, but smaller than a glossy plate.

The screen also stands out with its 3K definition, which is superior to Full HD and ideal for viewing (Very) High Definition content. Thanks to its sRGB and IPS specifications, the screen also offers more accurate colorimetry than the average with significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically.

Above the screen sits an infrared webcam that allows biometric authentication for face recognition via Windows Hello technology, which is also used by the fingerprint reader.

The Chiclet keyboard can, of course, be backlit, so we can better distinguish its keys in the dark.
On the other hand, no numeric keypad, while this functionality is present from 15 inches, which will undoubtedly regret those who regularly enter numbers.

This versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook is equipped with great connectivity with its 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Bluetooth wireless modules 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for communicating and connecting remotely, its audio port or its USB 3.2 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected the.

Performance, autonomy for HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf

The HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf can appeal to those who want to acquire a thin and lightweight versatile laptop in a comfortable 16-inch multimedia-oriented format and is converted into a tablet.

It embeds a dedicated Intel graphics card, the Arc A370M, whose performance gives it at least one GeForce GTX 1650 Ti from NVIDIA.

Clearly, enough to play a lot of titles for concessions under opuses greedy in 3D resources. A reduction in screen shrinkage is necessary in many cases, as the 3K definition of the screen requires more graphics calculations from the GPU than Full HD, which induces a lower number of fps.

Of course, you can also view images with the Intel Arc A370M, which is also possible with the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution integrated in the processor.
Depending on the tasks performed, the two switch automatically and in real time as needed.

Iris Xe is maximally preferred despite its more modest benefits because it is energy efficient, which promotes autonomy. Expect about 7 hours of battery life with light use while waiting for more concrete tests.

In any case, the Iris Xe is integrated with the Intel Alder Lake-P Core i7-1260P processor, with a low consumption, but if the TDP of 28W is higher than the classic 15W, which means better performance but greater energy consumption.

Still, coupled with 16GB of RAM, the Core i7-1260P delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying many users.

And in particular, creators who want to perform multimedia content processing using multicore (and therefore the 12 hybrid cores in Alder Lake) and RAM, which is the case, for example, with photo editing or video coding.

Keep in mind, however, that it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and / or a suitably dedicated graphics card if you frequently plan to perform work that requires processor resources and / or graphics. .

In any case, note that the Intel Arc A370M should be able to be used by certain applications to speed up multimedia processing.

Storage is up to par, entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that competes with what hard drives offer in this area, enough to install and store multiple software and files.

As a bonus, let’s highlight the advantages of an SSD over a hard drive: greater shock resistance, lower energy consumption, silent operation, or even greater speed.

Specifically, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, processing is remarkably faster, as are start / stop and software launches, and we reach the cards for online gaming faster.

Finally, thanks to its controlled weight and thinness, this versatile multimedia-oriented 2-in-1 hybrid Ultrabook with an elegant black aluminum design is easy to transport.
However, expect it to get hot and be heard under heavy load (eg treatments, games).

If necessary, a ventilated support can be used to limit temperatures (remember to check the goals carefully!).
