HP Spectre x360 Core i7 8th Gen for Gaming?

1 minute ago, leykhins said:

You think it will run GTA V and other high end games... if i dial it back a little that is?

How much RAM should I consider to go with it?

You'll need more ram for productivity anyways, so 16GB at min. You'll manage to run modern games at low settings.

Which GPU does it have? Intel UHD, Vega M or MX 150?

Even with MX150 I wouldn't recommend it for gaming.

You'd be surprised what an MX 150 can do. It's a surprisingly potent little card.

I mean, it's a laptop gt 1030. With the budget required for a Spectre laptop, one could afford a much better gaming laptop.

Its not exactly, more of video editing and animations. But would like to be able to play GTA V or Fortnite every now and then.

Both are doable if you play at 1080p and are prepared to dial some settings back.

In the case of gaming being secondary, then I think it will be fine.

It depends on the software you're using. Generally yes, the CPU will give you good rendering performance.

It's not mean for gaming anyway...

 

Where are you from? Budget? Usage? Preferred max weight and minimum battery life? Any other special requirements?
