Reviews for the HP Pavilion dv6-7030tx

80% HP Pavilion dv6-7030tx Ivy Bridge notebook review
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Pavilion dv6-7030tx is a fast Ivy Bridge-based notebook that also has an excellent, Full HD screen. It's well suited for home users who want a good computer not only to get stuff done, but also to get fun stuff done. We just wish it had a better Wi-Fi card in it, and there are certain aspects of the design that we'd change, too, such as the cover on the Ethernet port. All up, though, a good unit.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M:

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.
