Reviews for the HP Pavilion 15-bc008tx

74% HP Pavilion 15-bc008TX Review
Source: Think Digit English
The HP Pavilion 15-bc008TX is one of the best entry level gaming laptops we have tested this year. It performs well in almost every task. While gaming, the laptop maintained playable framerates for almost all titles we played. That said, you may have to lower the graphics for some demanding games, since the GTX960 is only an entry level gaming GPU.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":
