PC Games Benchmarks on HP Pavillion 15

1. Fortnite

You will be getting around 96-125 Frames Per Second (FPS) when graphics are set at low-performance mode and 1080p resolution and 60-65 Fps when set at high-performance mode and 1080p resolution.

2. Forza Horizon 5

This game when run on HP Pavillion 15 will give FPS in the range of 66-75 at high settings and 1080p resolution. Even at 1440p resolution and high settings, the laptop maintains a steady 60+ FPS.

3. GTA 5

You get around 65-80 FPS at very high settings and 1080p resolution. The drop in FPS is mostly seen in those areas where GPU demand is increased. Even then, the laptop manages to maintain 60+ FPS which is impressive.

4. Red Dead Redemption 2

RDR2 runs pretty decently on this laptop. It gives 35-40 FPS at medium-high settings and 1080p resolution. At the same resolution when the settings are changed to low-medium, FPS is increased to 55-60. This game is quite demanding when it comes to GPU and Processor usage. This laptop handles it well enough. Still, do not expect a constant 60 FPS.

5. Assassin's crCreedalhalla

At 1080p resolution and medium-low settings, the game runs at 50-60 FPS max. An average FPS of 53 is maintained but at times it does touch the 60 mark. However, if you are keen on playing the game at 60 FPS then you can change the screen resolution to 768p with the same medium-low settings.

6. Elden Ring

This game is on everyone's wishlist these days. Elden Ring runs above average on HP Pavillion 15.
It gives 44-50 FPS at 1080p resolution with medium settings. You will get a boost of 8-13 FPS if you reduce the resolution to 768p. You can expect an average of 50+ FPS that way.
We have found something which you might find to your liking. The game offers three different options in the Graphics Setting tab- full screen, borderless and windowed. When set at 'Borderless', there is an increase of 10-15 FPS which enhances the overall Frame Rate to 55+ at 1080p resolution with medium settings.
