HP Victus 16 Gaming Laptop, Ryzen 5 5600H, RX 5500M, 8GB DDR4, 256GB $999 (44% off) Shipped @ HP NZ


Not an outrageous deal but a good price for an entry level gaming laptop.
Did a quick check of the specs and looks like the CPU is pretty good and the GPU is roughly equivalent to a gtx1650.
Memory should be upgradable as upgrade sites mention a second sodimm slot. This would probably be advisable as 8gb in single channel is a weakness as configured.

This is part of Click Frenzy deals for 2022

  • not a bad price :)

  • I thought gtx1650 is quite decent. Is it only counted as entry level gaming graphics now?

    • Very entry level these days.

    • the apu in this laptop is ok once you get duel channel 3200mhz ram

      like fortnite in performance mode high setting at 1080p you can get up to 144fps

      but games like cyberpunk at 1080p low will get around 22fps - 32fps

      but a 1650 will give you 38fps - 58fps at 1080p low

      so the apu in this can not compare to a 1650

      • It has a dedicated GPU, a RX 5500M which is similar in performance to a 1650…

          every site i saw specs just says it was using AMD Radeon Graphics so i was guessing it was the apu graphics

    Thoughts on 8gb RAM for Windows? Is it good enough these days?

    • +1

      It has an additional slot. Would recommend matching another 8gb, especially with how cheap RAM is these days.

    • Wouldn't touch anything with less than 16GB, as stated upgrade it immediately.

    • to get the best out of the apu you will need to get duel channel 3200mhz ram

  • Not a bad price, is quite an old model now thou. Was first released 3 months prior to Windows 11 coming out. (Came out with win10)

    Needs the RAM doubled to make it more attractive.
