HP ProBook 600 G3 series coming with Kaby Lake and Radeon options
HP is accompanying its announcement of the flagship EliteBook 820/840/850 G4 series and EliteBook x360 with the new mainstream ProBook 600 G3 series for a launch later this year. While specifications are still largely unknown, we can expect the 14-inch ProBook 640 G3 and 15.6-inch ProBook 650 G3 to supplant the existing 640 G2 and 650 G2.
The third generation of the new ProBooks will receive many of the same updates as the upcoming EliteBooks including the latest Kaby Lake Core i3/i5/i7 U-series processors up to the i7-7600U. The two new ProBook models will also have optional Radeon R7 M465 GPUs, but will otherwise carry the same 48 Wh battery and TN display options as the ProBook 640 G2 and 650 G2. The chassis appears to be largely identical between the generations as well, so the refresh is largely internal.
HP has yet to announce starting prices for the upcoming ProBook series. As for the general consumer side, the new 15.6-inch Spectre x360 refresh will be launching as early as next month and will be a more graphically capable machine than the current Skylake generation.
