HP 255 G7 in review: Multiple weaknesses, no strengths

Ryzen office. The HP 255 G7 offers a Ryzen 3 APU, 8 GB of RAM, a DVD drive, and a 512 GB NVMe SSD. Windows 10 Pro serves as the operating system. Moreover, the built-in display disappoints in every respect.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

With the 255 G7, Hewlett Packard delivers a simple 15.6-inch office laptop that is aimed at professional and consumer users. The device is powered by a Ryzen 3 3200U APU and is one of the few models that still has a DVD drive on board. Competitors include devices like the Lenovo V15-ADA, the Acer Aspire 5 A515-56, and the Dell Latitude 3510.

Case and connectivity - The HP laptop doesn't offer USB-C

HP has chosen a silver-gray plastic case that has matte, smooth surfaces. The design of the base unit's top side is meant to simulate a brushed finish. The chassis is well made, but it should provide more rigidity. The battery is firmly built into the device. You can access the internals after removing the bottom cover. HP hasn't made the latter particularly user-friendly.

In terms of ports, you get the standard selection: The laptop has three USB-A ports (2x USB 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB 2.0), an HDMI output, and an audio combo port. The memory card reader (reference card: Angelbird SD Card AV PRO UHS-II 128 GB V60) is among the slow models. Moreover, the reader accommodates SD cards almost completely. They protrude by about 2 to 3 mm.

The WLAN chip (Realtek RTL8822BE) supports the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standard and offers Bluetooth 4.2 functionality. The data rates determined under optimal conditions (no other Wi-Fi devices nearby, short distance between laptop and server PC) are good.

Input devices - The HP laptop lacks keyboard backlighting

The flat, minimally roughened keys of the non-backlit chiclet keyboard have a short travel and a clear pressure point. The keyboard bounces minimally when typing. All in all, HP delivers a keyboard that is suitable for everyday use here.

The smooth surface of the multitouch-capable touchpad (approx. 11.5 x 5.1 cm) allows fingers to easily glide on it. Moreover, it also responds to inputs in the corners. The two separate mouse buttons offer a short travel and a clear pressure point.

Display - Dim with low contrast and unstable viewing angles

Pixel grid
Pixel grid

The brightness (193.3 cd/m²) and contrast (398:1) of the matte 15.6-inch display (1920x1080 pixels) are poor. We consider values beyond 300 cd/m² and 1,000:1, respectively, to be good.

The display flickers at a frequency of 2,500 Hz at brightness levels of 90% and below. Due to the high frequency, however, even sensitive users should be unaffected by headaches and/or eye problems.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
11 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
38 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19 ms rise
↘ 19 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 40 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 2500 Hz ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 2500 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 90 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 2500 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17043 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Color reproduction out of the box is not satisfactory. With a color deviation of about 11, the target (Delta E less than 3) is clearly missed. Furthermore, the display suffers from a noticeable blue tint. In addition, the panel can't reproduce the AdobeRGB (36%) and sRGB (56%) color spaces.

Performance - Sufficient for office and Internet use

With the 255 G7, HP has a simple 15.6-inch office laptop in its portfolio that provides enough computing power for office and Internet applications.

Processor

The CPU part of the Ryzen 3 3200U APU (Picasso) consists of a dual-core processor that runs at a base clock speed of 2.6 GHz. An increase to up to 3.5 GHz is possible via Turbo. Simultaneous multithreading (two threads per core) is supported.

The Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test is briefly processed at 3.4 to 3.5 GHz, but the clock rate then drops to 2.6 to 3.5 GHz. The single-thread test is run at 1.6 to 3.5 GHz. On battery power, the CPU operates at 1.4 to 3.6 GHz (multithread) and 1.4 to 2.4 GHz (single-thread), respectively.

We check whether the CPU Turbo is also used permanently in mains operation by running the multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark in a loop for at least 30 minutes.

Surprisingly, the APU can only run at full CPU Turbo clock speeds for a short time. The Turbo clock rate drops to about 3 GHz under prolonged load. We don't identify a real reason for this. For comparison: The almost identical Athlon Gold 3150U APU that is installed in the Lenovo V15-ADA continuously operates at full power. Hopefully, HP will improve this with a future BIOS update.

System performance

The system works fast and smoothly, and we didn't experience any problems. The laptop has enough computing power for office and Internet applications. This is complemented by decent results in the PCMark benchmarks.

HP lets a part of the performance go to waste because RAM only runs in single-channel mode. The installation of a second memory module is recommended (= dual-channel mode active).

Graphics card

The Radeon RX Vega 3 GPU supports DirectX 12 and runs at speeds of up to 1,200 MHz. Like the CPU, the GPU can only operate at full power for a short time. Our The Witcher 3 test shows that the GPU clock rate drops to about 1,000 MHz after 1 to 2 minutes. Moreover, the results in the 3DMark benchmarks are at a normal level for the GPU installed here. Activating dual-channel mode (= installing a second memory module) would slightly increase graphics performance.

Gaming performance

The built-in APU can handle games with moderate hardware requirements. Smooth frame rates are reached at low resolutions and low quality settings. Furthermore, it would be possible to increase frame rates by activating dual-channel mode (= installation of a second memory module).

In order to verify whether the frame rates remain largely constant over a prolonged period of time, we let the game The Witcher 3 run for about 60 minutes at Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings. The character is not moved.

The graphics core has to reduce its clock speed to just under 1,000 MHz after about 1 to 2 minutes. Since the frame rates are generally very low, the decrease of the GPU clock rate hardly has an impact on them. In order to visualize this decrease, we repeated our The Witcher 3 test at low performance settings.
