Top Features of this HP Pavilion 15
Following are the main features of this laptop that all users (from beginners to advance) will really appreciate.
11th Gen i7 rather than 10th Gen
Under the hood, this HP 15-eg0021nr notebook has the most recent Intel i7 chip, which is the Intel Core i7-1165G7 chip. This processor chip is intended to power sleek and thin laptops, yet to be capable to run more advanced PC tasks. Moreover, this processor was also built to be a power-efficient chipset, meaning your laptop is also an energy-friendly device.
Versus its predecessor, the Intel i7-1065G7 chip, the i7-1165G7 improves its maximal CPU Turbo frequency speed, its smart cache (12MB vs 8MB), and its capabilities to handle its Graphics. This new 11th Gen of i7 CPU brought over around 27% faster performance. For a CPU speed difference, this improvement is substantial.
See this CPU benchmark versus its predecessor.
Impressive Onboard GPU
The processor of this HP 15-eg0021nr, the 11 Generation i7-1165G7 chip includes the revolutionary integrated and first Intel’s discrete Graphic card, the Intel Iris Xe Graphics.
If we talk about an iGPU (integrated GPU) and advanced PC works such as editing your videos (4K/8K ), playing AAA games titles, we need at least a capable integrated GPU. Intel has never had it, however, that’s now changing, because the Intel Iris Xe inside Intel’s 11th Generation CPUs has proved to performs significantly better than its predecessors (Intel HD Graphics). Thanks to the improved execution units (EUs), shaders, and base as well as maximal turbo clock frequency. Not only does it have double the performance but is also very capable to control the temperature when your computer performs heavy PC works and gaming.
With this improved iGPU, along with the newest version of i7 CPU and dual-channel memory (16GB), the HP 15-eg0021nr is capable of editing or playing 4k, and 8K videos, and playing triple-A games with pretty excellent results.
In the following graphics, you can see what games you can play at 1080p high resolution.
I have said good things about the Graphics of this HP 15-eg0021nr laptop so far, but to be honest, this GPU is not a dedicated Graphics card, which is a crucial component on a laptop when you want to play games intensively. This means, if you wish to have a laptop to mainly game, then we suggest you to get a model that was built to game, such as this one (which does not cost a lot more).
Is HP 15-eg0021nr A good workstation or Not?
HP Pavilion has been around for ages, the fact that HP keeps updating this line shows that it’s one of the most reliable Windows-based laptop brand in the market.
This 15″ laptop is no exception, it’s an extremely lightweight notebook that comes with top specifications. The dual-channel 16GB of RAM (not 8GB), and the 11th Generation Intel i7 chip (not 10th Gen nor i5 CPU) make this notebook capable to get things done and more, like video editing and gaming. So yes, it is an excellent workstation, a very compact one and got a green light.
The included standard size HDMI port and SD card slot are good additions since these features are getting rare and rare for a thin and sleek laptop like this.
So if you need a PC companion that has updated internals, and spacious RAM, as well as Windows 10 Pro OS, this HP Pavillion 15 15-eg0021nr won’t disappoint, and it’s so lightweight!
