HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf against the competition
HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf is now available at HP France It ranks as one of the most powerful in its class in terms of processor and graphics and one of the only companies to offer such a high definition display.
Chassis, Connectors, and Display HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf
Open 360 degrees to transform into a tablet, this laptop with a dark black aluminum design, brushed brass accents and sandblasted finish, has a sleek and discreet look but is also authentic.
Its screen is decorated with multi-touch technology: by pressing / simple gestures with at least one finger, you can interact with the system and the program.
A protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass covers the slate, which means bright colors and greater sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a classic anti-reflective slate, but less than a glossy slate.
The screen also stands out with its 3K resolution, which is superior to Full HD and ideal for viewing (very) high-resolution content. Thanks to sRGB and IPS specifications, the screen also offers more accurate than average colorimetry with large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically.
Above the screen is an infrared webcam that enables biometric authentication by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology that is also used by a fingerprint reader.
Obviously, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit so we can better distinguish its keys in the dark.
On the other hand, there is no numeric keypad while this 15-inch function is present, which will undoubtedly regret those who enter numbers regularly.
The versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook is well-connected with 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, and a handy HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for remote connectivity and connectivity, its audio port or USB 3.2 (compatible with USB 2.0 / 3.0) ensures transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected to it.
The performance and autonomy of the HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf
The HP Specter x360 16-f1013nf can appeal to those who want a thin, lightweight and versatile laptop in a convenient 16-inch multimedia-oriented format convertible into a tablet.
It includes a dedicated Intel graphics card, the Arc A370M, whose performance puts it at least the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti from NVIDIA.
Obviously, it is enough to play a lot of titles to get concessions in the shadow of greed in 3D resources. Reducing screen shrinkage is necessary in many cases because 3K definition of the screen requires more graphics calculations from the GPU than Full HD, resulting in lower frames per second.
Of course, one can also view images with the Intel Arc A370M, which is also possible with the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution built into the processor.
Depending on the tasks being performed, it switches automatically and in real time between the two as needed.
Iris Xe is most preferred despite its more modest benefits as it is energy efficient which enhances autonomy. Expect about 7 hours of battery life in light use while waiting for more concrete tests.
Iris Xe is anyway integrated with an Intel Alder Lake-P Core i7-1260P processor, which is definitely lower consumption but 28W TDP higher than the classic 15W, which means better performance but greater power consumption.
However, the Core i7-1260P, paired with 16GB of RAM, is associated with a good overall performance capable of satisfying many users.
And in particular, creators who want to perform multimedia content processing using multicore (hence 12 Alder Lake hybrid cores) and RAM, as for example in photo editing or video encoding.
However, keep in mind that it is best to switch instead to a computer based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card if you frequently plan to do work that requires processor and/or graphics resources.
Note however that the Intel Arc A370M must be able to be used by certain programs to speed up multimedia processing.
Storage in equal measure, it is entrusted to the SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that rivals what hard disk drives offer in this area, which is enough to install and store many programs and files.

As a bonus, let’s highlight the advantages that an SSD offers over a hard disk: greater shock resistance, lower power consumption, silent operation, or even faster speed.
Concretely, SSD ensures better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, processing is much faster, as well as start / stop and program launches, and we get to online game cards faster.
Finally, thanks to its controlled weight and thinness, the versatile 2-in-1 multimedia-oriented Ultrabook in a sleek black aluminum design is easy to transport.
However, expect her to warm up and be heard under heavy pressure (eg, treatments, games).
If necessary, a well-ventilated brace may be used to reduce temperatures (Remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
