AMD Ryzen CPU options coming to the HP Pavilion Gaming laptop series for the first time ever
It hasn't even been a whole month since we last checked out a 15.6-inch HP Pavilion Gaming 15 laptop and the OEM is already gearing up for a complete refresh. The upcoming late 2019 model will have rearranged ports, a wider hinge, and an improved cooling solution when compared to the early 2019 model.
Perhaps the most notable change will be the addition of quad-core Ryzen 5 3550H and Ryzen 7 3750H SKUs as alternatives to the usual quad-core Intel Core i5-9300H or hexa-core Core i7-9750H. We expect performance levels to be similar to the Asus Zephyrus G GA502 which ships with the same Ryzen CPUs and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU as on the upcoming Pavilion Gaming 15.
Both the latest 15.6-inch Pavilion Gaming 15 and 17.3-inch Pavilion Gaming 17 SKUs in market are some of the quietest gaming laptops we've tested and so we certainly have our hopes up for the upcoming redesign.
The Pavilion Gaming 15 will launch this September for a starting price of $800 USD. No word yet on when or if the Pavilion Gaming 17 will be receiving the same Ryzen refresh treatment.
