Hewlett Packard (HP) has revealed a few exciting highlights about its upcoming notebook. Among other things, the HP Envy 16 is supposed to come with a dedicated graphics card like the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 and a 12th generation Intel CPU. In combination with a 16-inch OLED panel, this not only sounds like a work machine, but also promising entertainment and great gaming fun.
The best prerequisites for good entertainment
That the HP Envy 16 is not necessarily intended for mobile use in the subway is already clear from its size. However, the manufacturer does not even have this intention. In view of the very good configuration, which already amazes with many powerful components in the basic version, the notebook can rather be categorized as a desktop PC replacement. The display of the chicly designed notebook offers a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels in the basic configuration. In combination with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, HP creates the best conditions for buttery-smooth moving pictures when scrolling or playing fast games. Those who place a high value on maximum contrasts and vivid colors can alternatively opt for an OLED panel with a resolution of 3,840 x 2,400 pixels.
This gets 100 nits brighter than that of the base version with a maximum of 500 nits. For classic home office use, the HP Envy 16 comes with a matching webcam, which also offers support for Windows Hello. Under the hood, the manufacturer maintains the good first impression. An Intel processor from the 12th generation is at work here. Depending on the configuration, it is the Intel Core i5-12500H, Intel Core i7-12700H or Intel Core i9-12900H. The CPU is supported by either 16 or 32 GB RAM. In terms of flash memory, you can opt for up to 2 TB in the form of an NVME SSD.
As desired with RTX 3060
Gaming enthusiasts can equip the office notebook with the appropriate graphics performance so that decent gaming can be done after work. HP offers an optional dedicated graphics card in the form of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 for this purpose. There is also nothing to complain about in terms of connectivity. As befits a modern Intel architecture, the HP Envy 16 also offers two Thunderbolt 4 ports.
The manufacturer supplements these with 2x USB-A ports, 1x HDMI 2.1 and an SD card slot. HP has installed an 83 Wh battery so that the user does not have to rely on a permanent power connection. This is supposed to be half-full within half an hour thanks to the fast charging function with up to 200 watts – amazing!
Available now in the US
HP seems to be gearing up properly for the fiscal year. After all, the US manufacturer has some exciting hardware highlights in the pipeline. Not only the notebook flagship in the form of the HP Spectre x360 16. On top of that, the HP Envy 16 sounds very promising. Depending on the configuration, impressive hardware performance meets a huge display that measures 16 inches. In the US, the all-rounder with a lot of performance is already available for an MSRP starting at $1,399. It is still uncertain when the promising piece of technology will be launched in Germany.
