Today HP is launching updates to their ZBook lineup with the new HP ZBook Fury 15 and 17, and the ZBook Power G7 mobile workstations offering performance, manageability, and a more compact footprint than the outgoing generation of ZBooks. Both are available with the latest Comet Lake H Series processors, as well as a Xeon variant and ECC memory, as well as NVIDIA Quadro GPUs.

HP ZBook Fury 15 and Fury 17

If you need the most performant ZBook around, look no further than HP’s Fury lineup, which features both a 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch variant. The Fury 15 is 12% smaller than the previous generation, and the Fury 17 is 29% smaller, but both still pack a punch with Intel Core i5, i7, i9, and Xeon options with up to 5.3 GHz. The Xeon adds in ECC memory support, and HP has outfitted the laptops with 4 SODIMM slots for up to 128 GB of DDR4 non ECC RAM, or 64 GB of ECC. HP offers up to 10 TB of storage as well with dual M.2 slots with 4 TB max each, and a 2.5” SATA drive with 2 TB.

HP is offering 1920x1080 IPS displays as a base offering on both models, with the Fury 15 having an available privacy screen. Both the Fury 15 and Fury 17 also have UHD display options, with 100% P3 gamut support and an optional 10-bit HP DreamColor panel.

To drive the displays, HP offers what feels like every mobile workstation GPU available, so you can basically pick what fits your needs based on application support, performance, and of course cost. On the NVIDIA side there is Quadro RTX 5000, 4000, and 3000. If you do not need the tensor cores, there are also Quadro T2000 and T1000 GPUs available. If you would prefer an AMD GPU, HP offers the Radeon Pro W5500M and Radeon RX 5500M. There is something for everyone.

Being a mobile workstation, there is of course Thunderbolt 3 support, and plenty of connectivity options. For networking, clients can utilize the included Gigabit Ethernet, or Wi-FI 6 based on the Intel AX201, and if you are on the go, HP offers LTE as well with the Intel 7360 LTE modem.

HP will be offering the new Fury 15 and Fury 17 on September 14 at HP.com.

HP ZBook Power G7

HP is also offering the new ZBook Power G7, which offers much of the same features as a typical ZBook with a MIL-STD chassis, manageability, and support, but at a more affordable price point. The Power G7 still offers the same range or processor options as the Fury models, but the 15.6-inch laptop is smaller, lighter, and not available with the high-performance Quadro RTX GPUs, but is instead limited to the Quadro T2000, T1000, or T620 GPU.

Storage and RAM maximums are also lower, due to the smaller chassis, with only two SODIMM slots instead of 4 on the Fury series, meaning RAM is maxed out at 64 GB of non-ECC, or 32 GB of ECC RAM. There is a single M.2 slot, which HP offers up to 2 TB of storage with.

As with the Fury 15, the Power G7 offers a 15.6-inch display with a 1920x1080 base configuration, and optional UHD, but the display sticks to the sRGB color space.

There is still Thunderbolt 3 support, as well as Gigabit Ethernet, and Wi-Fi 6, but no cellular option on this model.

For some though, the lower power and therefore reduced weight will be a bonus, with the Power G7 starting weight a full pound lighter than the Fury 15, at 4.32 lbs. It’s not an ultralight 15-inch laptop, but still hits a good starting weight despite the ability to pack in a Xeon processor.

The HP ZBook Power G7 should be available on October 5 at HP.com.

    its business market , they buy anyhow, blind as usual just based on what the presales offer..... Reply

    Read that as "Power and Furry" and was briefly horrified. Fury is sort of a stupid branding for a computer anyway though at least it isn't covered in armpit hair or some gross looking face beard thing. Reply

    Yet another high powered laptop that has sacrificed good cooling for looks. A laptop that needs a 200 watt PSU needs to be thicker than 1.06 inches for the cooling system to be quiet.
    This laptop has also got a very poor camera system - 720p in 2020 ??? A quick look on eBay has new Android phones at under £36 with far higher resolution (5M pixel vs the 1M pixel of this laptop). As one of the business uses of the camera in a laptop is to record or send images of a document, this inadequate camera is a letdown - it probably saved less than $1 from the manufacturing cost.

    Poor HPE.... still relying only on the roadmap of Intel... chickens that will pay the price Reply

    Let's analyze the presser pics:

    * Pro: Get this laptop and you can solder stepper motors without any solder present!
    * Pro: High resolution display for showing mechanical models while you solder.
    * Pro: Connect it to 2 large displays and still want to use the built-in trackpad and display!
    * Pro: You can do CAD with keyboard only! And take notes at the same time!
    * Con: This laptop will force your external displays to look at your chest instead of your eyes.

    Dumbass geek... presumes he knows better than marketing geniuses.

    That's why they get the big bucks and corporate promotions, while you are and shall forever remain a peon.

    So it goes ;-)

    Skip this and look up the HP Omen 15 Ryzen 2020 now that's got it all for right price Reply

    What's more likely, next-gen intel closes the performance gap or next-gen AMD starts to get incorporated in more high end laptops? Reply
  • Spunjji - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    Definitely the former. Tiger Lake finally gets Intel to where Ice Lake was meant to be, and it'll be a little while before AMD's response arrives in the form of Cezanne, so there will actually be something like parity again.

    If 18 months of increasing competition capped off with the 6-month-telegraphed arrival of a truly superior product wasn't enough to get OEMs on board, then their thought processes aren't really based on what's best for the customer (or their own products).
