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.

    ... just when I thought there was already more than enough Power & Fury in the world!
    (no, I do not want to trigger a political discussion here - just a joke on the naming)

    Thats just sad... no Renoir, 10th gen Intel Reply
  • creed3020 - Tuesday, September 1, 2020 - link

    Yeah very upsetting to see no changes in mobile offerings which totally ignore the whopping performance potential. There is a strong possibility that these design wins were done well before Renoir was available for qualification. Reply

    Not even real 10thn gen, rebadged 9th gen.... more like rebadged 6th +++++ Reply

    In HP's defense, the market these types of devices are targeted too requires a great deal of validation. These are highly customized machines with solid firmware. Reply

    IIRC Razer's Studio Edition Blades were released last year, with largely the same specs. Reply

    Considering the target market, the choice of Intel CPUs is a real letdown. Sure, it's probably a challenge to get various ISV certifications with an AMD APU, but performance and power draw would still be miles better. Reply

    Do you mean 18.6mm instead of 28.6mm? Reply

    No AMD, no buy. Reply
