The Pavilion Gaming 15 series includes 15.6-inch gaming laptops with midrange graphics chips. The series sits below the HP Omen series. Nvidia's GeForce RTX GPUs are exclusive to the latter, however. Our test device is powered by a Ryzen 7 3750H APU and a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU.
The performance of the hardware matches our expectations: All of the games in our database run smoothly. Usually, Full-HD resolution and medium to high settings can be chosen.
Surprisingly, the battery life is very good. The Pavilion lasts much longer than most office laptops. However, the gaming laptop lacks a Thunderbolt 3 port. HP also only grants users a warranty period of one-year.
