While sound intensive games, such as Battlefield 3, can still be consumed properly, the fan proves to be extremely present in quieter games, such as Anno 2070. Although the fan is occasionally disabled in idle, the Pavilion dv7 is always audible. Two examples: With 16.1 to 18.7 fps (Asus N75SF), the Radeon HD 6770M places itself about 14% behind the GeForce GT 555M in the Unigine Heaven benchmark (1280x1024, high, default tessellation). Synthetic benchmarks are good for roughly estimating the potential of a hardware component. Despite being equipped with equally fast hardware, the Asus N75SF and Acer's Aspire 7750G fall behind slightly in the benchmarks. In comparison: The slightly older midrange GPU, Radeon HD 5650, computes about a third slower (19 fps @ Acer TravelMate 7740G). Only few HDDs can beat a transmission rate of about 100 MB/s (CrystalDiskMark) and an access rate of 14.9 ms (HDTune). We recommend the purchase of the HP Pavilion dv7-6c07eg as it offers great performance for a reasonable price. We'll start with the 500 GB HDD. A HD video decoder and a HD audio controller (surround sound via HDMI) belong to the most important features. The left side of the notebook is quite crowded, and many ports are placed quite close to each other, making it possible that a large connected device might block the neighboring ports. On the other hand, nothing's in the way of an enjoyable race (36 fps) with 1366x768 pixels, two-time antialiasing and the preset "High" (DX 11). The beginning of the games was only rendered with 19 fps. In 3DMark Vantage, the 7690M could score 6765 points, which is slightly more than what its competition (6770M, 6850M and GT 555M) could deliver. Our benchmark (beginning of the single player mission "Operation Swordbreaker") partly stuttered considerably. 0 0. With the exception of the cursor keys (which vary in size) and the special Fn-combinations (can be altered in the BIOS), the keyboard is standard and the user will be able to quickly get accustomed to it. Although the cooler fan of the laptop never switches off (even when the notebook is idle), the noise emissions from this model remain quite low. Our test model has the smaller resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels, which, with a diagonal of 17.3 inches, means a pixel density of 106 dpi. In return, 3DMark 11 (1280x720, performance preset, GPU score) favors the AMD graphics card, whereas the difference is relatively low with 1289 to 1258 points. 8488 points in PCMark Vantage and 2456 points in PCMark 7 - some of the best scores we have seen from a notebook without a SSD. We are familiar with this GPU (HP Envy 17), and most of its specifications have stayed the same as the older Radeon HD 6770M. Unfortunately, the notebook does not use the amazing Full HD display found in the other configuration of this model. All interfaces, which are used less often, should be placed further back on the left side or on the back of the notebook. The multimedia laptop has to accept some criticism in system noise. The advantage drops to 7% in single core rendering (4848 vs. 4551 points). The processor throttled slightly and the clock frequency dropped from 2000 to 2100 MHz. The Pavilion dv7-6101eg consumed a bit less power not least due to the energy-efficient dual core CPU and the screen's lower brightness in the test. We noticed that the wrist rest got a bit warmer during higher load. Please share our article, every link counts! Even when "only" 1366x768 pixels, high details and two-time MSAA is selected, the action track is unplayable with 18 fps. The Core i7-2670QM built into the dv7-6b02eg is Intel's latest quad core CPU and can process up to eight threads thanks to Hyper Threading (this technology simulates virtual cores). Ejemplos: “Deskjet Ink Advantage 1510 atasco de papel”, “HP 240 G5 bluetooth”. Interesting: the Acer Aspire 7750G is slightly more conservative (in 3DMark 06) although it uses the Radeon HD 6850M. Devices with Same Screen Size and/or Weight. Finally, we take a look at the viewing angle stability. The model only supports the 802.11b/g/n standards and it can not connect to networks with the 5 GHz wireless frequency. Eight GB of DDR RAM, a fast quad core processor with up to 3.1 GHz and a BluRay burner equip the user adequately for the future. Such difficulties aside, the Radeon HD 7690M offers exceptional performance and  places itself in the top middle-class range. HP's Pavilion dv7 proves you can make a sub-$800 Windows laptop that looks and feels good. We had the problem that a black bar developed at the screen's right edge in some games with 1366x768 pixels (could also be due to the driver version theoretically). Detailed review of the HP Pavilion dv7-6b02eg (Intel Core i7 2670QM, AMD Radeon HD 6770M, 17.3", 3.2 kg) with numerous measurements, benchmarks and ratings Our thermometer recorded up to 55°C in the stress test. Product Name HP Pavilion dv7 Entertainment PC ... Docking Expansion port 3 supports the HP Notebook Expansion Base and HP Notebook QuickDock Keyboard/pointing devices 17-inch full-size keyboard with numeric keypad Still, a more powerful cooling system would be desirable, so as to take into account high surrounding temperatures. A maximum of 84 watts during load (Radeon HD 6770M) is also acceptable. The dv7-6b02eg isn't exactly quiet during load. For perfect film or music experience, we recommend the use of external speakers via the HDMI interface or the two audio jacks. The Pavilion dv7-6b02eg is perfectly suitable for use as a TV or gaming platform for several people because of the wide horizontal viewing angles. The Radeon HD 6770M settles to 42 fps, so about 20% behind the GeForce GT 555M (51 fps @ Asus N75SF). The manufacturer should also consider improving the relatively loud cooling system. In comparison, the Asus N75SF (which costs around the same) and the Acer Aspire 7750G score lower in this department. 16161 points in PCMark Vantage earns respect. We used the rendering test of GPU-Z to put the Radeon HD 7690M under high load. For slightly more than 900 Euros, the user receives a potent 17 inch multimedia laptop which delivers high program and game performance - despite the fact that neither the Core i7-2670QM nor the Radeon HD 7690M are much different from their predecessors. However, when demanding 3D programs start, the Radeon HD 7690M (derived from HP Radeon 7690M XT) takes over automatically. Users who occasionally edit pictures will be delighted about the almost full coverage of the sRGB color spectrum (professional users need a screen with a larger color space, though).
