Correction 3/23: The original article indicated the AMD APU options in the HP Envy x360 15 to be Cezanne. However, the Ryzen 5 5500U and the Ryzen 7 5700U are actually Lucienne parts and have been now indicated as such. Readers may kindly note.

The 2020 HP Envy x360 2-in-1 received a decent recommendation in our reviews of both the Intel Comet Lake-U and AMD Renoir versions. This year, HP is introducing a refresh to the HP Envy x360 offering both Intel Tiger Lake and AMD Lucienne upgrades along with a few chassis design changes.

The 2021 HP Envy x360 sports Bang and Olufsen-tuned speakers on either side of the keyboard deck instead of the top as in the 2020 version. Another minor change in this year's iteration is that both the Intel and AMD variants offer a similar placement of ports on either side. HP said that the touchpad area is now 19% larger compared to the previous generation and is properly centered.

HP Envy x360 15 with AMD Ryzen Lucienne

HP has two Envy x360 SKUs on offer powered by AMD's latest Lucienne Ryzen 5000-U processors. The Envy x360 eu15m-eu0013dx and eu15m-eu0023dx share an identical spec sheet. The only difference between the two models is that the 15m-eu0013dx is powered by an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U APU and comes with a 256 GB NVMe SSD while the 15m-eu0023dx offers an AMD Ryzen 7 5700U chip and a 512 GB NVMe SSD in the default configuration. Both variants offer 8 GB of dual-channel RAM, but the memory is not user upgradeable.

The default configurations come with 15.6-inch FHD IPS touchscreens with a 250-nit brightness and 45% NTSC color gamut coverage. Buyers can also opt for a 4K OLED panel with a 100,000:1 contrast ratio and a 100% DCI-P3 coverage. HP says that all configurations come with factory-calibrated displays with a Delta E < 2. HP Display Control offers selecting optimal color profile depending on the use case. The Envy x360 models also offer HP Eyesafe to reduce harmful blue light emissions.

The Intel Tiger Lake variants of the HP Envy x360 come in Core i5-1135G7 (15m-es0013dx) and Core i7-1165G7 (15m-es0023dx) options.

The Intel variants offer Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (a proprietary variant that works with only certain Intel chipsets), and the Core i7 SKU offers 12 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM along with 512 GB PCIe storage and 32 GB Intel Optane memory. The Core i5 version, on the other hand, offers a 256 GB NVMe SSD. The Intel SKUs also implement a Thunderbolt 4 port that offers 40 Gbps throughput while AMD versions have to make do with a 10 Gbps USB Type-C port.
