New mobile workstations feature new high-performance 12th Gen Intel Core mobile CPUs and high-end Nvidia RTX graphics


HP has launched two new 16-inch ZBook mobile workstations, the HP ZBook Fury G9 and HP ZBook Studio G9, along with a 280W Thunderbolt Dock that can ‘fully charge any laptop or mobile workstation’.

HP ZBook Fury G9

The ZBook Fury G9 is powered by the new 12th Gen Intel Core HX-Series processors. With up to 8 P-cores and 8 E-cores, these ‘Alder Lake’ chips should offer a significant performance boost in multithreaded workflows, especially ray trace rendering, when compared to mobile workstations with 11th Gen Intel Core processors.

Graphics options include the Nvidia RTX A5500 with a max Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 145W, and AMD Radeon Pro GPUs, although HP has not detailed which ones.

The machine supports up to 128 GB of DDR5 memory across 4 DIMMs and up to 16 TB of NVMe storage across four M.2 SSDs.

There are no Hard Disk Drive (HDD) options, a first for an HP ZBook of this class.

With a new 16-inch form factor, the HP ZBook Fury G9 comes with a choice of 16:10 aspect ratio displays, up to the 120Hz 4K DreamColor model for colour-critical workflows.

Lighting on the full sized keyboard with numeric keypad can also be customised, with RGB per-key LED backlighting. This isn’t just for gamers, says HP, with the Z Light Space software allowing users to create custom configs for specific apps to highlight keyboard hotkeys and shortcuts.

HP has also concentrated on improving the experience of video conferencing. With HP Auto Frame, the 5-megapixel IR camera and audio will automatically follow the presenter (or multiple presenters) as they move within the camera’s frame.

DNN Noise Suppression will also suppress background noise for ‘crisp, clear calls.’

The HP ZBook Fury G9 measures 363 x 251 x 2.78mm and starts at 2.44 kg.

It is expected to be available in June with prices yet to be announced.

HP ZBook Studio G9

The ZBook Studio G9 is significantly slimmer and lighter than the ZBook Fury G9, so offers the slightly less powerful 12th Gen Intel Core H-Series processors with up to 6 P-cores and 8 E-cores.

It offers similar graphics options up to the Nvidia RTX A5000, with a max Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 110W. Meanwhile, HP Vaporforce Thermals feature new curved metal blades to help keep the machine running cool and operating at peak processing power.

With up to 64 GB of DDR5 memory, spread across 2 DIMMs, the HP ZBook Studio G9 offers less memory than the HP ZBook Fury G9. However, this is still a big improvement over the HP ZBook Studio G8 with 32 GB, which some customers found limiting. Other specs include up to 4 TB of NVMe M.2 storage. It also comes with RGB per-key LED backlighting but has a lower res 720p IR camera.

The HP ZBook Studio G9 measures 356 x 242 x 180mm and starts at 1.73 kg.

It is expected to be available in June with prices yet to be announced.

HP Thunderbolt G4 Dock

The HP Thunderbolt G4 Dock offers up to 280W of power, the ability to fully charge any laptop or mobile workstation with Thunderbolt 4 technology, and double the ethernet speed than previous generations. There is also a 120W version for lower-powered laptops. With HP SureStart, HP claims it is the world’s most secure dock.

The HP Thunderbolt G4 Dock 120W and 280W are expected to be available in May starting at $329 and $439, respectively.
