Performance of HP AU620TX:
For the best performance, HP AU620TX is definitely the best deal under Rs. 60K. In daily performance, you will not observe any lags and it can perform intensive tasks very well. Coming to gaming, it is obviously not as good as the high-end gaming laptops but it can still run the latest titles with a decent framerate.
You can play 2-3-year-old games like GTA V and Tomb Raider at medium settings around 60FPS. New games like Rise of the Tomb Raider, Watchdogs 2, Far Cry Primal will run of a frame rate of 25-35 FPS which is pretty decent for a low budget gaming laptop. Also, the keyboard is backlit which looks just stunning. If you need better gaming performance in the same budget, I would recommend you to build a gaming PC instead.

Apart from gaming, Video Editing Softwares like Adobe After Effects, Sony Vegas Pro run very well. If you’re a developer then again this laptop is a good choice as it will handle software like Android Studio, PyCharm efficiently without any lags in performance.
Even for business, this laptop is as most of the important tools like MS Office comes pre-bundled with the HP AU620TX.
Final Words on HP Pavilion AU620TX:
Final Words on HP Pavilion AU620TX:
The HP AU620TX is a jack of all trades. A perfect all-rounder that will suit everyone’s need whether it is business, gaming, editing, software development, entertainment, HP Pavilion AU620TX does the job. Alongside these, it provides a great battery life. The Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake ensures that the laptop doesn’t overheat while providing great performance at the same time.
Some of the cons of this laptop are HD Display, DDR3 Graphics and 5400 RPM Hard Disk. At this budget, everyone would like to have a Full HD display and even though Nvidia 940MX has a GDDR5 variant, only the low-end DDR3 variant is present in this laptop. Also, the 5400 RPM bottlenecks the system at times especially when an anti-virus scan is going on or when you’re copying/moving large files. Apart from these three factors, this laptop excels in every field.
I’ll rate HP Pavilion AU620TX 9/10 and I’ll definitely recommend it to everyone at this budget.
