Cheap HP Pavilion Aero 13 is faster than any Spectre 13 currently available all thanks to the AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 7 5800U

AMD Zen 3 propels the HP Pavilion Aero 13 to be cheaper and faster than any Spectre 13 currently available

C'mon, HP. It's time to give AMD Zen 3 options for your Spectre lineup, too. The 8-core Ryzen 7 5800U is one of the fastest U-series CPUs in the market and yet it is not available on HP's best prosumer laptop series.

Traditionally, newer designs and technologies would launch first on higher-end models before waterfalling to mid-tier and lower-end products over time. Narrow bezels and OLED panels, for example, first appeared on flagship models like the Dell XPS or HP Spectre before becoming available on the lower-end Inspiron or Envy series. The HP Pavilion Aero 13 is unique in that it is an entry-level laptop from HP and yet it carries an even faster processor than a flagship Spectre laptop of the same screen size.

As of this writing, the fastest processor available for the 13-inch Spectre 13 series is the quad-core 11th gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 while the aforementioned Pavilion Aero 13 comes with the octa-core AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 7 5800U. The AMD CPU boasts 50 percent faster multi-thread performance and similar single-thread performance when compared to the Core i7-1165G7. Thus, users interested in the faster processor will have to skip the Spectre 13 and go with the cheaper Pavilion Aero 13 even though the pricier Spectre is technically the better laptop.

Intel Tiger Lake-U still has the advantage in integrated graphics performance by as much as 30 to 60 percent according to 3DMark benchmarks. Real-world games, however, show the Iris Xe 96 EUs and Radeon RX Vega 8 to be much closer and even neck-to-neck in the majority of games.

So, why won't HP offer a Spectre 13 with AMD options? We suspect that since the Spectre 13 is an Intel Athena or EVO-certified laptop, offering models with AMD SKUs can be tricky. Pavilion and most Envy laptops aren't restricted by the same Intel EVO standards and so they can carry a wider variety of SKUs and processors. Until then, performance hunters will have to settle with the lower-end HP Pavilion Aero 13 because their higher-end Spectre models come with slower processors.

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.
