HP envy 15 RTX studio design evaluation: high performance + 4K screen, the “sharp weapon” of content creators

For the notebook industry, there are office books focusing on light and thin endurance, and game books with strong performance. Only a few “design books” with multimedia content production as the main selling point are few. < / P > < p > some readers may think that video creation needs strong performance? This demand, a high configuration video card game notebook can be fully met. < / P > < p > however, this is not the case. Video creation, which is our general sense of “clip”, needs not only the strong performance of the graphics card, but also the accurate screen color and powerful CPU. < p > < p > with the further reduction of the threshold of video creation, more and more UGCS have appeared on the network. HP aims at the needs of users for video content creation, and has launched a lightweight notebook for content creators, HP envy 15 high performance creative design book certified by NVIDIA RTX studio. < / P > < p > envy 15 fuselage is made of aluminum alloy. The overall body weight is 2.15kg, and the thinnest part is 18.5mm. As a 15 inch Laptop, it has a powerful geforce RTX 2060 max-q design graphics card, as well as ultra-high-speed running memory and memory, which makes it excellent for body control. < / P > < p > on the a side of the laptop, we can see that the delicate surface of the body is inlaid with the artistic “HP” mirror logo. Such logo design, in a large number of silver notebook computers, identification is very high. < p > < p > turn on the computer. It is a 15.6-inch screen. The frame of this screen has been narrowed to some extent. The overall screen accounts for about 82.6%. The most important thing is the hardware parameters of this screen. < / P > < p > this is a 4K resolution AMOLED display, with high resolution, and excellent contrast and gamut coverage due to the use of OLED screen. The screen has a 100000:1 contrast and 100% dci-p3 gamut coverage, officials said. < / P > < p > in addition, the screen has been professionally toned before leaving the factory, with a color difference of Δ E & lt; 2. In order to take into account a variety of scenarios, the official pre installed HP display control one button color matching function. This makes it possible to switch between web pages, pictures and movies at will. < / P > < p > video clips not only need excellent screen for color matching, but also have high demand for audio playback. Envy 15 uses a dual loudspeaker set up by Bang & Olufsen, which is very capable of playing on the external level. In addition, it also has a 3.5mm headphone interface, and supports Bluetooth 5.0, so there is no problem with wired or wireless headphones. On the same side of the speakers taught by Bang & Olufsen is the “multi in one super keyboard”. The keyboard integrates fingerprint recognition, camera switch, mute microphone and HP command center. < / P > < p > of course, many users are more concerned about whether the keyboard, or even the touchpad, is easy to use. In fact, there is no need to worry about this. Envy 15 adopts X-shaped structure, and the glass material of the touch panel is very smooth. Whether it is long-term typing text or using the touch panel for operation and interaction, it can be used freely and has excellent use experience. < / P > < p > as for the fuselage interface, envy 15 still uses the ordinary DC round hole charging port, with its own input power peak input power of 150W, but it also provides two usb-c lightning 3 standard interfaces. It is not only convenient for users to use it for charging, but also can be used to transfer devices that need faster transmission bandwidth, such as hard disk supporting usb3.1 standard, and external expansion video card, and even video signal output. < / P > < p > in addition, it also has two usb-a3.0 standard interfaces, a TF card slot, and a standard size HDMI video output port. With HDMI interface and lightning 3 video output port, it is more convenient to connect external display. < / P > < p > due to the strong performance of the graphics card and CPU of envy 15, in order to suppress this pair of “big heat users”, HP has also made a lot of efforts in heat dissipation: two 12V large displacement cooling fans are used inside the fuselage, and HP also adds game level VC heat dissipation board, which also makes envy 15 can maintain a longer period of efficient and stable operation, improve the efficiency of multimedia rendering. < / P > < p > at the same time, HP has designed a large number of air outlets / air inlets on the left side of the notebook, the connection between the screen and the keyboard, and the D side of the notebook. This enables the notebook to be able to work in large-scale rendering with high load for a long time, and can ensure that the performance will not be reduced due to overheating problems, which will affect the use experience. < / P > < p > since envy 15 positioning is a “multimedia productivity” tool, many users certainly have certain expectations for its actual performance. < / P > < p > envy 15 as a RTX studio certified design, NVIDIA geforce RTX 2060 is applied Max-q design graphics card also adds the function of hardware acceleration, which will play a great role in image and video editing, especially the new generation of RTX Series graphics card, which also adds ray tracing technology and AI algorithm based on machine learning, so as to further enhance the image details. < / P > < p > from the test data, we can find that when rendering the “bedroom” scene, if only the CPU works alone, it can only render 834000 samples; if the geforce RTX 2060 max-q design graphics card is enabled for acceleration, it can render 2.854 million samples in a minute. In other words, the graphics card and CPU work together, rendering efficiency increased more than three times. < / P > < p > the same acceleration effect is also suitable for rendering the scene of “sports car”. When the graphics card and CPU work together, the rendering efficiency is improved by three times and four times faster. From these data, it is not difficult to see the RTX graphics card for the improvement of rendering efficiency. < / P > < p > in addition, the CPU i9-10885h equipped with envy 15 is a standard pressure processor, with 8 cores and 16 threads, the main frequency is 2.4GHz, and the frequency of REMAX can reach an amazing 5.3GHz. In the actual test, it can also maintain 4.8ghz high load for a long time. < / P > < p > and Cinema 4D, which is widely used to create early 3D images and animations, is loved by many creative professionals. It includes modeling, mapping, assembly, animation, soft / rigid body simulation, rendering, etc. < / P > < p > from the score data of cinebench R15 and cinebench R20, it can be seen that in this multi-threaded rendering test, its performance is far better than the 10 generation core low-voltage CPU i7-1065g7, and the running score is close to it. Even Xiaochao uses the server level CPU Xeon X5650 with 12 cores and 24 threads. For the above < / P > users, it is self-evident that they are engaged in the design and testing of data. What about other types of content creators, like photographers or editors? < / P > < p > photographers always choose to take raw files when shooting pictures in the early stage, so as to retain more details of images. In the latest version of Lightroom 2020, photographers can use geforce RTX 2060 max-q to design the tensor kernel and image processing algorithm on the graphics card to obtain more image details in the original raw file. < / P > < p > take this raw image of lynx as an example. After the “detail enhancement algorithm” is enabled, you will find that the details and purity of the picture have been further improved. In this portrait, you can get the same result when you enable this feature. < / P > < p > take Adobe Premiere 2019, a video editing software commonly used by video creators, as an example, which also “eats” the benefits of graphics card acceleration. Geforce RTX 2060 max-q can accelerate playback, effects, multi track preview, even shape stabilizer, blurring, clipping, lumetri color matching, etc. < / P > < p > in the actual test, we first open the console to display the real-time working status of the software: after importing 4K 24P files, we do not do any pre rendering, and directly play the materials. < / P > < p > we can see from the console that the average real-time rendering time of each frame is about 41.73 Ms. This means that 4K / 24P files can be previewed in premiere in real time, without getting stuck at all. < / P > < p > How about the video export speed of envy 15? The author also edited a 3-minute 4K / 24P video clip, which is encoded in the current common H264 format. The specific video engineering file is shown in the figure: < / P > < p > exporting to 4K / 24P H264 encoding video file takes about 3 minutes and 17 seconds. What does this data mean? The author provides some data for your reference: < / P > < p > at present, most video websites in China play videos with a resolution of 1080p, and the highest frame rate is only about 60p. Only station B provides 4K / 60p video specifications for video upload / playback – however, at present, only a handful of creators upload 4K / 60p content. < / P > < p > from the test data, the envy 15 in my hand has no pressure to process 4K / 24P video clip. By the way, envy 15 uses a high-speed SSD that supports both nvme and raid0 protocols. The actual read-write speed of envy 15 is shown in the following figure: < / P > < p > although envy 15 is a professional design book for designers and creators. However, due to its powerful graphics card and CPU, the author also conducted a simple test on its game performance: < / P > < p > in the game gta5, adjust all the picture quality options to the highest, and run the game at 4K resolution, and its frame rate can be maintained at about 3045 frames; if the resolution is reduced to 1080p Then its frame rate can be maintained at about 54-61 frames. < / P > < p > in other words, we should adjust the picture quality to the highest level for common online games, such as lol and even pubg, and have no problem with smooth operation. < / P > < p > in general, envy 15 is a high-end RTX studio design book with strong performance and clear positioning. It has not only the high-end geforce RTX 2060 max-q design graphics card and the 10th generation core i9 standard pressure processor, but also the 4K AMOLED display which is very important for image creators. These characteristics make it stand out from many high-end performance books. < / P > < p > for those engaged in modeling and rendering related projects, it is a lightweight “mobile workstation”; for content creators who want to create 4K video, it is also a reliable and efficient “productivity tool”. At the same time, its powerful performance can not only be used in content creation, but also deal with 3A game masterpieces. < / P > < p > in the face of the current video creation upsurge of “national up masters”, the launch of envy 15 can be said to be “just in time”. If you just need a strong design book, envy 15 is definitely your best choice. Yueshang group has become the third social e-commerce service platform listed in China after being gat
