Hp Victus 16 E0179Ng Test

First, let’s look at the exteriors. The Victus 16 is found to be a smoky notebook, with the most apparent aspect being its Victus branding on the cover. With dimensions of 37 x 26x 2.35 cm and an approximate capacity of 2.48 grams, this notebook is small enough to take when you travel without developing an injury immediately. In addition, it is a good thing that there was no plastic used in the packaging, except as a bag to store charging power and the connection cable. Again, this is a good thing.

The hardware for ports and ports unique. On the left side, we have undoubtedly an SD card reader and an audio port, a 3.5-millimeter audio port, well as the USB 3.2 Type-C connector that has DisplayPort 1.4 support and one USB 3.1 Type-A port in addition to the HDMI 2.1 port as well as an RJ45 port to use as a network cable. There are two additional ports for USB 3.1 Type-A ports on the right side. They are located in the device’s rear, and there’s no cable to block the way when connecting to a mouse. Overall, it’s an efficient and modern configuration. Realtek Wireless-Fi 6 Bluetooth 5.2 and an integrated 10/100/1000 GbE LAN will ensure that you are always connected.

The entire keyboard that includes numeric keys does an excellent job. However, the case bends slightly too much in the middle – possibly compromising quality to lower the cost. The touchpad is big with high sensitivity, and this is an advantage and disadvantage. The downside is that it’s only several millimeters away from the keyboard. This, in conjunction with its size, makes it difficult not to trigger the touchpad when typing accidentally. It’s not a problem in gaming. However, people who order frequently may require some time to get used to locating a comfortable hand position.

Regarding screen size, HP uses a robust 16″ display with a resolution of 1,920 1.080 x 1,920 (Full HD) and, at the very least, the most impressive refresh rate of 144 Hz. The IPS panel isn’t the most efficient on the market, with an average speed of just seven milliseconds; however, it does provide an acceptable image, even though it cannot be a star in every subject. It also comes with the HP Wide Vision 720p HD camera.

The Victus 16’s internal workings promise. The heartbeat of the machine is AMD Ryzen R7 5800H, one of the eight cores with 16 threads and up to 4.4 GHz of clock speed. It’s supported by 16 GB of DDR4-3200 (2x 8GB). A powerful 1TB M.2 PCIe SSD guarantees rapid system boot-up and quick loading times. HP is relying on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 as the laptop version of this graphics chip. As you may have guessed, they are available in various TDPs (between 60-115W) to allow manufacturers as much flexibility as feasible in their configuration. Unfortunately, it’s believed to be the variant with a power output of 80W or 90W (at least, according to the power consumption measured). It’s, therefore, one of the weaker models.

HP has tried to find the perfect balance between power consumption and cooling for the Victus 16, and it certainly was successful. Although it’s one of the less powerful RTX-3060 models available, it’s enough to be able to play with Full HD. Moreover, even though the benchmarks are about 15 to 20 percent lower than the desktop graphics card, the gaming benchmarks speak about the smooth gameplay.

For instance, we achieved around 80 frames per second from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy with DLSS, and RTX Ultra enabled. In Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla performed smoothly, with an average frame rate of 55 frames per second when the settings were at their highest. Don’t be concerned about whether the lower TDP can cause problems. The battery’s life is a little sluggish when playing games, and the 70 Wh battery gets out of breath quite quickly.

However, its cooling capabilities are pleasant. The fans are quiet and make only a slight sound. We were able to record less than 50 dB from a distance of around 40-50 cm, which is extremely pleasant. The temperatures are still low. The graphics card was running at a steady 72 degrees at full load. The CPU sweltered up to 102 degrees. This isn’t unusual in AMD CPUs and certainly not in notebooks. The keyboard was within a comfortable temperature range with a maximum temperature of 40 degrees.
