Reviews for the HP Gaming Pavilion 15-dk0009ng
The HP Gaming Pavilion 15 handles all modern games with ease on its matte 15.6-inch 1080p display thanks to its powerful hardware. The device can even make use of its 144 Hz refresh rate while remaining comparatively quiet too. 16 GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM keeps the system ticking over, as does the 256 GB NVMe SSD.

HP's Pavilion Gaming 15 is a respectable contender in the ultra-competitive arena for 1080p gaming laptops priced just north of $1,000, but it falls in the quarterfinal or semifinal round instead of reaching the championship.

In comparison to its predecessor, the Pavilion Gaming 15 2019 is a step ahead in almost every direction. First, of course – the gaming experience. It delivered quite better performance, thanks to the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q. However, how was it able to do so, when the last model was overheating like crazy – at least in the GPU department.

Model: Hewlett Packard’s Pavilion Gaming laptop is perhaps one of the thinnest gaming laptop devices to ever grace the scene. Whenever gaming laptops are concerned, it is never surprising if certain models present themselves as rather bulky and heavy in size due to the additional specifications and design that were being put into their creation. With the uprising demand for both convenience and portability in business-oriented laptop models in this day and age, Hewlett Packard is one of the many company brands to take the first step in introducing gaming laptop models that are not only just as astounding in performance, but also suitable to commute around. At first glance, it is notable that the HP Pavilion Gaming laptop stands out on its own due to its distinctly bold design. This is exemplified through the availability of its color options ranging from Ghost White, Ultra Violet, or the strangely fascinating Acid Green. Whereas other competing brands of premium gaming laptop devices such as Razer and Alienware are among the first to adopt the color scheme of green into their laptop designs, Hewlett Packard’s selection of the Acid Green color is a bold representation to recreate the magic that these other brands seem to possess.
What makes the HP Pavilion Gaming laptop model an attractive prospect would be none other than its outstanding specifications. The HP Pavilion Gaming laptop model is armed with up to 8th generation Intel Core processor units that are tailored to keep up with intensive labor from modern game titles. Coupled with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, the HP Pavilion Gaming laptop model is bound to amaze even the most hardcore of gamers. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1600 Ti graphics card is astounding in its own regard due to its capabilities of performing at a boost clock of 1,770 MHz. The dedicated hardware encoder of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti improves the efficiency significantly by 15 %. The HP Pavilion Gaming laptop also possess a broad RAM space of up to a total of 16 GB on a fast DDR4 memory unit. This memory unit, just like any other on a gaming laptop, is upgradeable by personal choice, and the ample space unlocks significant performance boost for modern games as well as various other demanding applications to operate smoothly with barely a hint of slowness.

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.
