75.4% HP Pavilion Gaming 15 in Review: Cheap gaming laptop with good battery life | Notebookcheck
The Pavilion Gaming 15's combination of CPU and GPU is able to display all current PC games smoothly on the 15.6-inch screen. On top of that, it comes with an NVMe SSD, 8 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode) and very good battery life. However, the display is disappointing.

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile: Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. 

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Should be slightly faster than a GTX 1650, but is also available in different variants with a TGP ranging from 55 - 80 Watt (and two packages).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the GTX 1660 Ti with reduced clock speeds and optimized drivers.

AMD Picasso (Ryzen 3000 APU):

R5 3550H: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen cores clocked at 2.2 to 3.8 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 10 CUs clocked at up to 1300 MHz.

R7 3750H: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen+ cores clocked at 2.3 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 10 CUs clocked at up to 1400 MHz. The 3750H is the 35 Watt version of the 3700U with the same specs but a higher TDP for better performance under long periods of load.

AMD Renoir (Ryzen 4000 APU):

R5 4600H: Mobile Hexa-Core APU using Zen 2 cores clocked at 3 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1500 MHz.

R7 4800H: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.9 to 4.2 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 7 CUs clocked at up to 1600 MHz.

1.98 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

2.25 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


79.23%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
