Laptop Review: HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1048AX
The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1048AX is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H and Nvidia GTX 1650 Mobilewith 4 GB VRAM and AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 (4000/5000 Series). Other key specs include 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD, 256GB SSD. The Display here is a 15.6 Inch 144Hz FHD (1920 x 1080) Panel.
The HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec1048AX is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H which is slightly more powerful than the i7 9750H. The 4600H should be able to handle most of your active workloads of Photo and Video editing or any other CPU-intensive task the only bottleneck here being the 8GB of RAM which you can easily upgrade. The GTX 1650, on the other hand, is an entry-level GPU with limited potential for GPU intensive tasks such as 3D rendering and Gaming. Now compared to the previous GTX 1650 is about 40 percent more powerful than GTX 1050ti and is about 15 percent slower when compared to GTX 1060. The 1TB HDD+256GB SSD should be enough for most users which can also be upgraded.
