The HP Pavilion gaming lineup is here for gamers at an affordable price unlike the Omen and Omen X lineup. This comes just few days after the announcement of Dell’s G series. The new HP Pavilion Gaming series launch includes a laptop, two desktops variants, and a HDR gaming monitor.
The 15.6-inch Pavilion Gaming laptop comes in one size but a number of configurations. The price go as low as $799 to more than $1000. They are more gamer-centric with either ‘Acid Green,’ ‘Ghost White’ or ‘Ultraviolet’ accents atop a matte black chassis. They all have the 8th Generation Core i5 or i7 processors (either U- or H- series), coupled with 8GB RAM. It has a combination of 1TB DD and solid state storage. All of this sits behind a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) display with tiny bezels and in-plane switching (IPS) for wider viewing angles. HP promises up to 8 hours and 45 minutes of mixed usage on a charge from this laptop.
The two Pavilion Gaming desktops are the 690 and 790 variants. The smaller unit, 690 model, is an all AMD device sporting an AMD Ryzen 3 2200G or Intel Core i7-8700 processor. It is equipped with AMD Radeon RX 580 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics. Meanwhile, the 790 model is packed either with Core i5-8400 or Core i7-8700 and AMD Radeon RX 580 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. Both the desktops have up to 32GB DDR4 memory and a variety of SSD, Optane, and hard drive configurations up to 3.5TB, SD card slot, and optical drive. The smaller model starts at $549 and the larger one starts at $749.
The Pavilion Gaming 32 HDR display shines at 600 nits brightness and supports AMD’s FreeSync technology for reducing screen tearing. The display has a 2560 x 1440 resolution, a 75Hz refresh rate and is priced at $449.
