HP Victus 16-d1393nf against the competition

HP Victus 16-d1393nf is currently for sale by Darty and offered by Fnac. It is ranked as one of the only ones in its category that benefits from such a new processor (Alder Lake) with such a high number of cores.

If this HP Victus 16-d1393nf does not meet all of your criteria, you will find other configurations to play with a similar budget in our gaming laptop 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-d1393nf

This player-oriented and creative laptop, which can be recharged to 50% in 30 minutes, assumes a relatively sober look, while adopting gamer codes with its dark design with angular lines.

The connectivity options integrated in this creative gaming laptop are good, including 1 USB-C, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor, e.g. Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, audio and Ethernet ports, but also 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible), which guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.

A backlight system is, of course, mounted on the chiclet keyboard, which is convenient for better distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.

The screen is adorned with specifications that could not be more classic for such a PC. We regret that its colorimetry is standard just like its frequency, which the players will undoubtedly regret just like the creators. In any case, thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. It is also very suitable for viewing High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD resolution and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.

Performance, autonomy of HP Victus 16-d1393nf

The HP Victus 16-d1393nf is for those looking for a versatile 16-inch laptop designed for gaming and creation.

Whether the Iris Xe graphics part is integrated in the processor or the dedicated GeForce RTX 3050 Ti card, it is of course possible to view photos and videos on this laptop for players and creators equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology.

In practice, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the Iris Xe and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti as needed. The Iris Xe is as much preferred by the Optimus as possible despite its much more modest advantages because it uses little energy, which promotes autonomy compared to the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which is more powerful and greedy.

Thanks to the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and with concessions under graphics-intensive titles, you can indulge in a maximum of games.

In addition, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti accelerates processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere.

The Intel Iris Xe is directly integrated into the processor, an Intel Alder Lake-H Core i5-12500H hybrid here coupled with 16GB of RAM to provide solid overall performance that is capable of satisfying many users.

This core, which supports GeForce RTX 3050 Ti well, will be of particular interest to creators because it guarantees much faster processing than a classic Quad / Hexa Core in particular and 8 GB of RAM. The difference is especially noticeable during demanding work in CPU and RAM resources that utilize multicore – and therefore the 12 hybrid cores in Alder Lake – which is the case, for example, in photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.

On the storage side, we find within this versatile multimedia laptop, designed to play and create, built around an Intel HM570 chipset, SSD storage. It clearly enhances responsiveness and agility on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive, which in particular involves much faster processing, as well as game / software launches and start / stop, or even a faster arrival on the game cards in line.

It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive, but also less energy consuming, more robust and silent. With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in line with the standard for hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.

Finally, on the autonomy side, expect about 5 hours of battery life in light use of a versatile multimedia maker and gamer laptop that sounds and heats up under heavy load (e.g. treatments, games).

You can add a ventilated support to this computer if necessary to limit temperatures (remember to check the goals carefully!).
