HP ZBook G1New pro laptops feature choice of Intel and AMD processors with Neural Processing Units (NPUs)


HP has unveiled the G11 editions of its ZBook mobile workstation family (Power, Fury, Studio and Firefly), featuring a broad range of CPUs including Intel Core Ultra 5, 7 and 9 processors or ‘next-generation’ AMD Ryzen Pro processors with dedicated NPUs. All the new ZBooks have 16-inch displays (the Firefly G11 also has a 14-inch option) and come with a choice of Nvidia RTX Ada Generation Laptop GPUs.


The HP ZBook Power G11 features a new premium 16-inch design that is slightly deeper than the G10 edition. It’s available with Intel Core Ultra 9 or AMD Ryzen 9 Pro processors and comes with a choice of laptop GPUs, including the new Nvidia RTX 500 and RTX 1000 Ada, up to the RTX 3000 Ada.

The AMD version only goes up to the Nvidia RTX 2000, but can also rely on AMD Radeon Graphics built into the CPU, which features a pro graphics driver. The laptop supports up to 64 GB SODIMM DDR5 memory and up to 2 TB NVMe PCIe 4 x 4 SSD. It starts at 2.04 kg and is 22.9mm thick.

 


The HP ZBook Fury G11 is billed as the most powerful ZBook with a choice of ‘desktop class’ Intel Core HX processors, including 13th Gen Intel Core (with vPro) or 14th Gen Intel Core (non vPro). It can be configured with the top-end Nvidia RTX 5000 Ada Laptop GPU. It supports up to 128 GB SODIMM DDR5 memory, up to 16 TB NVMe PCIe 4 x 4 SSD. It starts at 2.4 kg and 27.7mm.


The HP ZBook Studio G11 is HP’s premium thin and light mobile workstation, starting at 18.3mm and 1.73kg. It comes with a choice of Intel Core Ultra processors, up to Nvidia RTX 3000 Ada Laptop GPU, up to 64 GB SODIMM DDR5 memory and up to 4 TB PCIe 4 SSD.

The HP ZBook Firefly G11 is at the budget end of the range and comes in 16-inch and 14-inch form factors. It’s available with Intel Core Ultra 7 or AMD Ryzen 9 Pro 8945HS processors and up to Nvidia RTX A500 Laptop GPU.  Like the HP ZBook Power G11, it can also rely on the AMD Radeon Graphics built into the CPU, which should be powerful enough for mainstream 3D CAD workflows.

This integrated graphics option makes more sense in the Firefly G11 than it does in the Power G11 as you get the same core specs in a smaller, more portable chassis. The 14” Firefly G11 A (AMD) starts at 1.4kg, the 14” Firefly G11 starts at 1.45kg and the 16” Firefly G11 starts at 1.76kg. All three models come in at 19.8mm.
