HP Victus 16 Laptop Review: A 1080p gaming powerhouse with few compromises

A victory for HP. The HP Victus 16 is one of the few budget laptops on the market with an Intel Core i5-13500HX processor. How does it hold up against modern-day games when paired with an entry-level graphics card? Read on to find out more.
HP Victus 16

HP's Victus line of laptops is targeted at budget-focused audiences looking for gaming solutions. However, it still runs plenty of Omen software, effectively cementing its position in HP's repertoire of gaming laptops.

The HP Victus 16-r0076TX offers an interesting mix of mid-range hardware, an Intel Core i5-13500HX  Raptor Lake-HX processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 (Ada Lovelace) graphics card.

It is a significant improvement over its last iteration, the HP Victus 16-e0145ng, which ran an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. However, the spec upgrade also comes with a corresponding cost increase.

Other specs include a 16-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS panel clocked at 165 Hz, a 512 GB NVMe SSD and 16 GB of DDR5 RAM (4,800 MT/s). It is an interesting machine that can satiate the itch of most gamers.

Case: Sturdy plastic body with a flimsy screen

Right out of the box, it becomes obvious that the HP Victus 16 is not very portable. Then again, gaming laptops are seldom lightweight, and at 2.3 Kg (5.05 lbs), the laptop actually falls on the lighter end of the spectrum. 

The all-black chassis doesn't have much in the way of branding, save for a "V" at the back and a standard fare of stickers at the front. HP aims to keep the laptop clean by including a dust filter on all vents. 

A 16-inch screen allows HP to throw in a full keyboard (numpad included) in the Victus 16. The screen flexes a bit too much, and it would be nice if HP revised it in subsequent releases.

Connectivity: Could have done with more I/O

I/O on the HP Victus 16 is surprisingly light for a gaming laptop. On the right, one gets a USB-C port, two USB-A ports (all three rated at 5 Gbps) and a HDMI 2.1 port at one end. Next to it, there's a barrel-pin connector for the charger. The USB and HDMI ports are a bit too close for comfort, especially near the HDMI port.

On the other side, there is just one RJ-45 Ethernet jack, a USB Type-A port and a 3.5 mm audio jack. Some additional I/O at the back would have been nice. The USB-C port almost seems like an afterthought, given its poor speed.

Communication

For an entry-level laptop, the HP Victus 16 has a good choice of networking options. You get Wi-Fi 6E and an Ethernet port, both of which let you transfer files at high speed.

In iPerf3, Intel's Wi-Fi 6E modem could receive data at 1,646 Mbps with our Asus ROG Rapture AXE11000 router. This is much faster than its competitors, which often lack Wi-Fi 6 functionality altogether.

Webcams are a rarity on gaming laptops, and the fact that HP Victus 16 even includes a 1080p (~2 MP) module is nothing short of a bonus. It isn't very colour-accurate, but it should cover basic tasks such as video conferences and calls.

There's even a (hard to find) physical privacy shutter that cuts off the camera entirely. Additionally, there's a dedicated section in the Omen Gaming Hub for camera/mic enhancements using Nvidia Broadcast.

Security

Security features are completely absent on the HP Victus 16, except for a TPM module, which is required for Windows 11. There is no sign of a fingerprint sensor, Windows Hello or even a Kensington Lock slot.

Accessories and Warranty

There isn't much to speak of about the HP Victus 16's packaging. It is largely bare bones with just the laptop and a power brick. However, the latter is remarkably large, as is the case with most gaming laptops.

HP India offers a limited one-year warranty with the Victus 16. An extra ₹2,999 gets you two added years of warranty and an anti-virus plan for three years. However, the offer is valid for a limited time.

Maintenance

Getting into the HP Victus 16 is very easy. All one needs in a Philips head screwdriver, undo eight screws at the back and pry open the cover plate. The WLAN card, DDR5 RAM, and the NVMe SSD can all be replaced. The battery can be unscrewed and replaced if necessary.

Input Devices: Decent keyboard with RGB lighting

The HP Victus 16 comes with a fully loaded keyboard and a sufficiently large trackpad. Its keys are large, and it shouldn't take long for desktop users to reprogram their muscle memory to work with the laptop. Its numpad is a welcome addition, but HP has chosen to put the power button in the worst place possible, next to the delete key. It took us a minute to find the power button the first time, and we're fairly certain we won't be the only one.

Keyboard

The keys felt a bit mushy but not too immersion-breaking. Those looking to customize keyboard lighting can do so via the Omen Lighting app.

There's a dedicated button to open the Omen Gaming Hub app and another one for the calculator.

Despite its plastic chassis, the keyboard is quite sturdy and doesn't flex much under pressure.

Touchpad

The touchpad has all Windows Precision gestures covered. However, the entire touchpad isn't clickable, with some of the top portion being rigid.

Palm rejection is on point as well, with it disregarding accidental swipes and clicks while typing. Tracking and gestures along the edges work without any issues.

Display: A 165 Hz screen with sub-par brightness

Our HP Victus 16 sample comes with a 16.1-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS LCD panel from Chi Mei. HP offers two additional screen choices with Victus 16 SKUs, 144 Hz FHD and 240 Hz QHD (2,550 x 1,440).

HP's website states this particular panel has a peak brightness of 300 nits. Our tests confirm the figure, but the distribution is on the lower end (82%). It is also a bit lopsided, especially towards the middle-right. 

Lastly, its 1,381:1 contrast ratio sits comfortably within an acceptable range. However, the panel is afflicted by a bad case of backlight bleed, which is a recurring issue with IPS screens in general.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
7.62 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.07 ms rise
↘ 3.55 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
6.18 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.01 ms rise
↘ 3.17 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.3 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected ≤ 100 % brightness setting

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18716 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

HP's advertised response time (grey-to-grey) is 7 ms, which is confirmed by our tests, which found the value to be 6.18 ms. Similarly, black-to-white response times were at a respectable 7.62 ms.

Some work with an X-rite i1Basic Pro 3 spectrophotometer and the Calman Calibration Software from Portrait Displays yields only marginally better results, with the greyscale deviation, ColourChecker and Saturation Sweep Delta E values only improving marginally.

An IPS screen usually ensures decent viewing angles. However, that isn't the case with the HP Omen 16's Chi Mei panel. There is a remarkable loss in details when viewing the screen from extreme angles.

Outdoor viewing is above-average, especially for a device with just 300 nits of brightness. The loss of detail was minimal in shade and under direct sunlight. However, we'd recommend keeping the laptop indoors as it doesn't exactly scream portable.

Performance: Raptor Lake and Ada Lovelace show up big time

The HP Victus 16 is available in a few configurations. Ours is the base variant with an Intel Core i5-13500HX and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop GPU. One can opt for a GeForce RTX 4060 and RTX 4070 if needed.

Those looking for a more powerful CPU can go for the Core i7-13700HX variant, which can only be paired with a GeForce RTX 4070. Users looking for extra memory can also opt for a version with 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage.

Testing Conditions

We picked the "Performance" plan to push the hardware to its limits. Some tests were conducted on the battery with "Eco" mode to check for performance degradation. HWInfo was unable to show the correct PL1 and PL2 information for different profiles, so we obtained these values during the Cinebench R15 loop test. 

If you're interested in tinkering with your laptop, you'll find yourself spending a lot of time in the Omen Gaming Hub. It gives a birds-eye view of everything ranging from CPU temps, clocks and voltages. It even lets enthusiasts undervolt their laptops without having to navigate through the BIOS.

Then there's a "network booster" tab that prioritizes traffic towards running tasks and a "performance control" section which gives you access to the power plans mentioned above. It also lets you set custom fan curves or have it at full blast at all times.

Processor

The Intel Core i5-13500HX powering our HP Victus 16 is a 14-core (6 performance plus 8 efficiency), 20-thread Raptor Lake CPU. It was launched as a part of the Raptor Lake-HX series of chips that upped the base TDP (55 Watts) against their H-branded counterparts. On top of the extra TDP headroom, it also increases the number of performance cores.

Despite being the lowest-end Raptor Lake-HX part, the Core i5-13500HX punches well above its weight class. In its PL2 state, the processor can consume up to 131 Watts of energy. However, the figure settles down at 83 Watts under sustained loads.  

Gaming laptops are known to lose a lot of performance on battery, and the HP Victus 16 is no different. For example, its Cinebench R15 score drops by ~58% from 2,863 to 1,211 points when AC power is disconnected.

DPC Latency

High DPC latency has been an ongoing issue on desktop Ada Lovelace graphics cards since launch. The problem seems to have carried over to its laptop variants, too. A quick look at LatencyMon says the culprit is "Wdf0100.sys" (Windows Driver Framework) and "Nvlddmkm.sys" (Nvidia Windows Kernel Module), indicating a software update could solve the problem later.

The M.2 SSD comes with shielding and is easy to replace
The M.2 SSD comes with shielding and is easy to replace

The HP Victus 16's SK Hynix PC801 NVMe SSD offers decent transfer speeds across a variety of workloads. Our tests determined it doesn't throttle even after extended use thanks to its thick metal shielding.

However, 512 GB is pitifully low in 2023, especially with bloated game sizes becoming the norm. Thankfully HP lets users install an additional drive with relative ease.
