HP ZBOOK LAPTOPS REVIEW

02/10/2021

A workstation is generally designed to perform intense processes such as rendering, 3d Animation,CAD, data analysis, and video editing. On the other hand,a laptop is generally adequate for less resource-heavy tasks such as browsing the web, checking email and typing documents.

The HP Z workstation was designed specifically with designers, animators and other visual artists in mind. It is also why the HP Z workstation laptops come with a variety of options. The HP Zbook is a brand of mobile workstation from HP and is a successor to previous mobile workstation in the HP Elitebook series.

HP ZBook Fury 15 G7

The ZBook Fury 15 G7 on display today has top-of-the-line specs across the board. It starts with an Intel Xeon W-10885M processor. This CPU has eight cores and 16 hardware threads via Hyper Threading, with 16 MB of cache, running at a base clock of 2.4 GHz and a maximum boost clock of 5.3 GHz. Despite all this speed, the Xeon gets by with a 45 Watt TDP. The closest analog in the consumer realm is the Core i9-10980HK, and it’s the fastest mobile workstation CPU that Intel currently makes.

Graphics duties are handled by an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPU with NVIDIA‘s Max-Q tech. Prior to Ampere when NVIDIA made sweeping changes, there could be multiple Max-Q configurations without any way of knowing which one you’d get. In this case, HP says the Quadro RTX 5000 has an 80 W TGP. This particular model has 3,072 CUDA cores running at a base speed of 600 MHz and a boost clock of 1,350 MHz. It has a whopping 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, good for 384 GB per second of memory bandwidth. Despite its lower power envelope than non-Max-Q options, the Quadro in this machine should still be pretty speedy

For memory, the ZBook Fury 15 G7 has 32 GB of DDR4-2667 spread across a quartet of 8 GB SO-DIMMs, two under the keyboard and two more under the bottom cover. A total of 128 GB is possible with 32 GB SO-DIMMs. Our review unit has just one of its three M.2 slots filled with a 1 TB NVMe PCI Express 3.0 SSD. We should also note that everything in this system is user-serviceable, as you might expect from a mobile workstation. We’ll get into the teardown later on, but upgrades are fairly simple despite the relatively svelte dimensions.

Networking comes in all shapes and sizes, and the ZBook can handle them all. Gigabit Ethernet comes from an Intel I219-LM network controller routed into a folding RJ-45 connector on the side of the machine. Intel’s AX201 Wi-Fi 6 module handles 802.11ax (2 x 2 MIMO antenna) and Bluetooth 5.0. Cellular users aren’t left in the lurch, either, as an optional WWAN card is available at an extra cost.

HP ZBook Studio G7

It is a powerhouse laptop for both creatives and gamers. From heavy media editing for creatives to higher-end PC gaming, the HP ZBook Studio G7 can handle a lot of heavy tasks. Despite getting a little too hot on the lap under heavy load and a fan that’s pretty loud at peak levels, this is a well rounded laptop that’s stylishly sleek and solidly built.

The pros include attractive and rugged design, solid battery life, keyboard and touchpad with good feel, powerful enough for creatives and gamers and spectacular external speakers. The cons are that it can get a bit too hot and the fan at times gets incredibly noisy.
