Players will be delighted that the screen enhances fluidity in games thanks to its 144Hz frequency, higher than the 60Hz standard.
Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a shiny panel.
With its 16:9 format and Full HD definition, the screen is suitable for HD videos while its IPS technology ensures significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. On the other hand, we are not dealing with high-end IPS. Consequently the colorimetry is classic.

Performance, autonomy of the HP Victus Gaming 15-fa1016nf

The HP Victus Gaming 15-fa1016nf is a versatile 15-inch laptop that performs well in creative-oriented gaming.

It is indeed capable of running the most recent games that require 3D resources because it features the high-end NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GeForce RTX 4060 ray tracing mobile graphics card.

Players will be delighted and so will creative people. Because the GeForce RTX 4060 also accelerates multimedia processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop, Sony Vegas or VSDC.

NVIDIA Optimus technology actually automatically activates/deactivates the GeForce RTX 4060 in real time depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus favors maximum operation on the Intel Iris Xe graphics module inserted in the processor while its performance is much lower because it consumes little energy which promotes autonomy.
In terms of autonomy, expect around 5 hours of battery operation in light use.

Optimus in practice uses the GeForce RTX 4060 to carry out graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Xe, typically for gaming.

The Core i5-12500H welcomes the Iris Xe. It is an Intel Alder Lake processor with 12 hybrid cores coupled here with 16 GB of RAM to deliver good general performance which will satisfy many users.

In games, the GeForce RTX 4060 is well supported by this heart. Creators will appreciate that it provides faster processing than a classic Quad Core and 8 GB DDR4. We clearly feel the difference under CPU and RAM resource-intensive work taking advantage of multi-core, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

The storage is obviously entrusted to an SSD which is more robust than a hard drive but also more energy efficient, silent and much faster.
The SSD thus provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive.

On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees game/software launches, processing and starts/stops much faster than a hard drive or even faster arrival on online game cards.

Here we find a 512 GB SSD, capacity equivalent to what hard drives offer as standard.
However, if you need additional space, you can use an external storage module such as a USB 3.0/USB-C device to benefit from fast transfers.

As for heating and noise, they are present when this versatile designer-oriented gaming laptop is pushed hard (e.g.: games, processing).
It can be combined with a ventilated support to contain its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
