HP Pavilion 15 "Gaming Edition" may be coming this March
Our colleagues over at tec2.hu claim that HP is at the cusp of announcing a Pavilion 15 with Omen-like features to take advantage of the growing mobile gaming market. The black chassis will include a Green chain fence pattern around the wrist rests with green keyboard backlighting as well.
Internally, the new model will supposedly house an Intel quad-core i7-6700HQ and an Nvidia GTX 950M. If true, then this would already exceed the graphics performance of the current highest configuration of the Pavilion 15 as the GT 940M is its most powerful option. The GTX 950M is capable of smooth playback of recent games such as Batman: Arkham Knight or The Witcher 3 at respectable 1080p settings. See our dedicated GPU page for more benchmarks on the 950M.
Other features include a FHD screen, HDD and SSD options, Windows 10, and a RealSense 3D camera with Bang & Olufsen speakers. Our source expects this to launch early next year and a quick look at the current Pavilion 15 starting prices suggests that the Pavilion 15 "Gaming Edition" will start at around 1000 Euros.
