Due to the semiconductor shortage, PC gaming has become more expensive in recent years. Gaming laptops are now available for those on a tighter budget. If you’re looking for a quality gaming experience without breaking the bank, the recently launched HP Victus 15 is an excellent option.

With a starting price of $799, the HP Victus 15 will be available on HP’s website and at Best Buy in the summer of 2013. AMD Ryzen 5 5600H and Radeon RX 6500M or an Intel Core i5-12500H CPU with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU are two options. These specs won’t let you play games at 4K or at 144 fps, but you may expect decent performance if you tune the games to run at lower or medium settings.


The HP Victus 15 has a fairly conservative style compared to other gaming laptops, which can look garish to some. Due to its lack of features and general thin form, it could be mistaken for a business laptop at first glance. When using the Victus 15 in public, you can rest assured that you won’t draw attention to yourself.

The Omen 16 gaming laptop ($1,199 starting price) from HP is also available for people who want a more powerful machine. An AMD Ryzen 9 6800H processor and RTX 3070 Ti or Radeon RX 6650M GPU will be available in both Intel- and AMD-powered variants. With any configuration, you can obtain up to 32 GB of RAM and 2x 1 TB of SSD storage. With a 16.1-inch 1440p display and a 16:9 aspect ratio, the laptop is equipped with a 165Hz refresh rate There will also be two 1080p choices, one at 144Hz and the other at 60Hz.


The HP Victus 15 isn’t going to appeal to gamers who are looking for the most powerful PCs, but it could be a good option for those who only want to play PC games at moderate settings. For the price of $799, the specifications aren’t quite mind-boggling, but they’re nevertheless impressive. As a result, while the price of GPUs has dropped recently, they haven’t become more readily available. For those looking for a budget-friendly option, this makes the best gaming laptops more appealing.


However, if you’re willing to spend a little more, the redesigned HP Omen 16 appears to be a better option. Be on the lookout later this year for both testing and evaluation.
