9 'O Clock Hd 1080p |BEST|
Over the past couple of years, the need for a great webcam has increased significantly. Many of us now work from home, and virtual meetings have become much more common. Even spending time with family has to be done virtually sometimes, so it's more important than ever to have a great webcam. While you can buy external webcams that are fantastic, that can be a clunky solution, so we've rounded up the best laptops you can buy that have 1080p (or higher) cameras built-in, so you don't need any peripherals.
9 'O Clock hd 1080p
The 2022 Lenovo Yoga 9i is a fantastic laptop in almost every way, and we said as much in our review. This is probably Lenovo's best consumer laptop of the past few years, and it gets so much right, from the design to the display and, of course, that 1080p webcam at the top.
Above that display, of course, is a 1080p webcam, which means you're going to look much better during video calls than you would with a 720p camera. It also support Windows Hello facial recognition, so unlocking your PC is easier than ever. You do get a fingerprint reader as well if you prefer that, though.
If you want one of the absolute lightest laptops around but without sacrificing performance or that 1080p webcam, the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro is the answer to your needs. After the initial Galaxy Book Pro left a pretty good impression overall. its successor is an improvement in almost every way, all while keeping the ridiculously thin and light form factor.
Naturally, the laptop does come with a 1080p webcam, another notable upgrade from the previous generation, it also has a wider field of view than before. Samsung also includes some software that lets you tweak how you look during calls, so you can always be confident in how you present yourself. Unfortunately, there's no Windows Hello facial recognition support on this laptop, so the fingerprint reader is your go-to for biometric authentication.
Ultimately, the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro is definitely one of the best laptops around with a 1080p webcam. The fact that it packs a powerful processor and a solid selection of ports in such a thin and light chassis is a feat of engineering, and it's almost impossible not to recommend it.
Whether the MacBook Pro 14-inch is worth it depends entirely on how much performance you need from your laptop. It's not a cheap laptop at all, but it's incredibly fast and efficient, has a fantastic screen, and comes with a great 1080p webcam.
But the real highlight of this laptop is the 16-inch display with a tall 16:10 aspect ratio. This large canvas comes with a stunning OLED panel that produces vibrant colors and true blacks, and on top of that, it's extremely sharp with Ultra HD+ (3840 x 2400) resolution. That's the only configuration available, too, so you're guaranteed a phenomenal viewing experience. Of course, above that display sits a 1080p webcam with temporal noise reduction, which should ensure you look great during meetings and calls. There's no facial recognition on this model, but you can use the fingerprint reader to sign in with Windows Hello.
In terms of performance, the HP Spectre x360 13.5 comes with 12th-generation Intel Core CPUs, but unlike most of the models we've seen so far, these come from the U series. They have a lower 15W TDP, which means they won't be as fast, but in turn, they'll get you better battery life. You can go up to an Intel Core i7-1255U, which gives you 10 cores, 12 threads, and clock speeds to 4.7GHz on the performance cores, so you still get very solid performance for day-to-day tasks. It still includes Intel Iris Xe graphics, and on top of that, you can configure this laptop with up to 32GB of RAM and a 2TB SSD. This is a premium laptop through and through.
The webcam on the HP Spectre x360 is potentially one of the best on this list. Yes, it records in 1080p, but the sensor itself has 5MP resolution, and it has some smart features like auto framing and lighting adjustments so you always look your best. On top of that, the camera supports Windows Hello facial recognition, so unlocking your PC is easier than ever.
The Spectre x360 13.5 is a great convertible, and there aren't a ton of flaws we can point on it. It has a beautiful premium design, a great display, and with the latest model, one of the best 1080p webcams you'll find on a laptop. You can check it out below.
The Surface line of products has always had some of the best 1080p webcams in a laptop, and that's never been more true than with the Surface Pro 9. The 5G model is especially great if you want a great webcam experience, but the Wi-Fi variant has similar camera hardware.
Finally, if you want a laptop that's affordable and still has a 1080p webcam, the Surface Go 3 is your go-to (even if it's technically a tablet). Webcams are usually one of the first things to cut back on with budget devices, but the Surface Go 3 has cameras almost as good as the premium Surface tablets.
As we said above, the webcam also wasn't sacrificed on the Surface Go 3. Like the Surface Pro 8, the Surface Go 3 has a 5MP/1080p webcam, something you won't find on any other laptop at this price, and it also supports Windows Hello facial recognition. On the back, there's another camera, this time an 8MP sensor that also records 1080p video.
Despite that, the Surface Go 3 is a great budget device, and if you want a 1080p webcam on the cheap, you won't find another laptop that can do that. However, you have to keep in mind that the keyboard is sold separately, so that's a cost you'll have to add if you want a proper laptop experience.
A 1080p webcam is great for video meetings and calls, but it can also be good for streaming if you don't want to spend money on one of the best webcams out there. And if you're streaming your gaming sessions, why not get a laptop that can do it all?
Webcams are often overlooked in gaming laptops, but the Razer Blade 15 uses a 1080p camera above the display, so you're pretty well served here. Not just that, there's also support for Windows Hello facial recognition, something else that's also overlooked frequently on gaming laptops. It's great to see that Razer didn't ignore these details.
The Razer Blade 15 is a great powerful laptop that doesn't overlook features like the 1080p webcam or the design, something that tends to happen with other gaming laptops. You can find most configurations at Amazon below.
Above that display is the 8MP webcam, which is probably the best you'll find on any laptop. The video resolution will still be 1080p when you're on a call, but HP uses software smarts to track your face and keep you in the frame. With the extra resolution of the sensor, it can just crop into the image without having to lose any quality.
Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is the first phone with a 200MP camera system. It can record 8k@30fps in HDR10+ and the footage is quite impressive when shot under adequate daylight. You can go on to record 1080p videos at 30fps. The phone records slow-motion videos at 960fps.
Vivo has always delivered cutting-edge camera specs on its flagships and iQOO 9 Pro is one such mobile phone. iQOO 9 Pro can record slow motion videos at 1080p videos at 240fps. The phone is current flagship device from the brand weilded on Snapdragon 8 Gen1 chipset.
Now you know how DPI has an impact on pictures in PowerPoint, you might be asking yourself how does the Windows scaling affect all of this? When you change the scale factor in Windows Settings what is essentially happening is that the display DPI is being changed. You might have one HD1080p monitor set to 100% scale and another set to 200%. The corresponding monitor DPI values for these are:
This means that there are twice as many dots/pixels in use on the second monitor. The impact on PowerPoint is therefore that you need twice as many pixels in the image to display it optimally, irrespective of the DPI setting in the picture file. That means taking your HD1080p picture and sourcing a 4k version of it, which is 3840 x 2160 pixels.
AMD launched this week a refreshed Radeon RX 6650 XT, which is simply an overclocked 6600 XT with faster memory. The cores are clocked 2% higher and the GDDR6 memory is 9% faster, both of which have increased the board power rating by 13% to 180 watts.
The improvement to the average frame rate in Horizon Zero Dawn at 1080p is underwhelmight, here we're looking at a 4% boost for the 6650 XT over the 6600 XT, though that did make it 13% faster than the RTX 3060, so I guess there is that.
Moving on to Far Cry 6, we find very strong performance at 1080p using the high quality preset. The 6650 XT was only 4% faster than the original model, but that saw it average 157 fps and that's a 30% increase over the RTX 3060.
The margin remained the same at 1440p, where the 6650 XT was 27% faster than the RTX 3060, though the gap to the 6600 XT did increase, now 9% which is quite a significant increase compared to what was seen at 1080p.
The Radeon RX 6650 XT is a non-event. It is a little faster, which is nice, but it also costs a little more, so ultimately who cares? It barely strengthens AMD's position. In terms of cost per frame, it's a few percent better than what we already had, but realistically what the 6650 XT offers was only a mild overclock away with the 6600 XT. 350c69d7ab
