Victus is one of the most interesting lines of HP in its catalog of computers, since they combine modern aesthetics with specifications that usually reach the top of the market. Of course, those with a more limited budget can also find options that fit it, such is the case of HP Victus 16-d0050ns .

HP 16-d0050ns is a mid-range laptop with support for gaming activities thanks to the inclusion of an Nvidia 3000 series graphics card, as well as a screen with support for a 144 Hz refresh rate and a powerful Intel Core processor i7 to respond to the highest demands of users.

Play in Full HD

HP 16-d0050ns is a model that weighs almost 2.5 kilograms

The most important thing to mention among the benefits of this model is the combination of an Intel Core i7-11800H processor (speed up to 4.6 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology, 24 MB L3 cache, 8 cores, 16 threads) with a 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz RAM and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card (4 GB GDDR6 dedicated).

Despite the fact that the GPU is at the bottom of Nvidia’s next-generation catalog, its performance is enough to enjoy AAA gaming experiences at medium graphics settings and in Full HD resolution . Its numbers put it between the GTX 1650 Ti and GTX 1660 Ti versions, although with the advantage of offering compatibility for DLSS or ray tracing technology.

Finally, its 16.1-inch IPS type screen with micro-edge design, anti-reflective capacity, 250 nits brightness and 45% NTSC color coverage, stays at a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Its support for a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz is also a good detail, although it will not be able to reach such high frame rates per second in recent games.

More technical details to highlight

As mentioned in models such as HP Victus 16-e0054ns , this computer also comes with an internal storage space of type SSD PCIe NVMe TLC M.2 of 512 GB , as well as an internal battery of four cells and capacity of 70 Wh that reaches an average autonomy of 5 hours and 45 minutes in mixed use or more than seven hours of continuous video playback.

Finally, the computer features an HP Wide Vision 720p HD webcam with integrated dual-array digital microphones, two B&O-branded optimized stereo speakers , HP multi-format SD card slot, Ethernet input, and a variety of conventional ports including one Reversible USB-C (DisplayPort 1.4, HP Sleep and Charge), three USB-A with signal speed of 5 Gbps, HDMI 2.1 video output and 3.5 mm headphone/microphone combo jack.

Perhaps the most negative point to highlight on this occasion is the absence of a Windows operating system from the factory , so the user will have to take some initial time to install their favorite platform before starting to enjoy this laptop.

PROS:

  • Modern design with quality materials
  • Compatible with gaming without taking the price through the roof
  • Screen promises good viewing experience
  • Variety of connections available

CONS:

  • No pre-installed Windows operating system
  • Its 144 Hz screen will not be usable as it does not have such a powerful GPU
