Honor enters the gaming laptop sector with the new line of Hunter devices. The first product of the dynasty, as promised, is now official: it is the Honor Hunter V700.
Before going under the body, let's see the design: Honor has chosen a logo that integrates its original identity and relaunches it in a gaming key, with an "H" that becomes more pointed, almost an "X", and presents in the center a stylized eye. The whole, of course, is illuminated by customizable RGB LEDs, which however in general are not too invasive, and only underline some salient points of the device such as the strip on the back and along the sides in correspondence with the air vents and obviously the keyboard. island complete with numeric keypad.
The screen is a large 16.1-inch IPS panel, outlined by thin 4.7mm bezels, with 144Hz refresh rate and 100% sRGB coverage. One aspect that Honor focuses on is the compactness of the Hunter V700, which at only 19.9 mm thick is one of the thinnest machines in its category. As for the CPU, the choice can fall on the Intel i5-10300H or the i7-10750 H up to 5GHz in boost, while as GPU we find the NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti or the RTX 2060.
The amount of RAM is 16 GB, while the NVMe SSD has a capacity of 512 GB or 1 TB. Another particularly relevant aspect, when it comes to terminals designed for high-level performance in the gaming field (there is also a Hunter button to turbo performance), is certainly the dissipation system: Hunter V700 comes with two supercharged fans. 12 V and 240 cooling fins.
Regarding the ports, we find only one USB-C, two USB 3.2 and one USB 2.0, one HDMI, one Ethernet input and the 3.5mm headphone jack.
