The upcoming late 2019 model will be 4 percent thinner (23.5 mm vs. 24.5 mm) with 28 percent larger heat pipes than the 2018 model. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 5 3550H and Ryzen 7 3750H should offer a performance level similar to the Core i5-9300H but for hopefully much less.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
