HP EliteBook 830 G8 and EliteBook 840 G8 launched with Intel Tiger Lake CPUs, 5G-enabled nano-SIM card slot, and more
HP has launched a new range of Intel Tiger Lake-powered notebooks tailor-made for 24x7 connectivity. The HP EliteBook 830 G8 and EliteBook 840 G8 feature a host of connectivity features including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6 and 5G, allowing users to stay connected to the internet at all times. HP will divulge more information about the EliteBook 830 G8 and EliteBook 840 G8's price later this month, as the notebooks are expected to go on sale towards the end of December 2020.
The HP EliteBook 830 G8 and EliteBook 840 G8 come with 11th-generations Intel Tiger Lake CPUs. Both Core i5 and Core i7 variants will be available for purchase, and the top-of-the-line SKU will likely run the Core i7-1165G7 processor. It can be paired with up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 3,200MHz and 2TB of solid-state storage via an NVMe SSD. Both RAM slots are user upgradable. Graphics processing is taken care of by an Intel Xe GPU, which has been a standard on most Tiger Lake-powered notebooks without a dedicated graphics card.
The only discernable difference between the HP EliteBook 830 G8 and EliteBook 840 G8 is the screen size. The former comes with a 13.1-inch FHD IPS LCD panel, while the latter has a larger 14-inch screen with the same spec. For an extra price, you can add a layer of what HP calls Sure View Reflect privacy screen, which should help keep the contents of your screen away from prying eyes.
Input options on the HP EliteBook 830 G8 and EliteBook 840 G8 include two Thunderbolt 4.0 ports, one of which can output video, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, one HDMI 2.0 port, one combo audio jack and a nano-SIM card slot. Its 3-cell 53Wh battery supports fast charging at up to 65W via the included charger or any USB PD-complaint device. The included 720p webcam can be paired with optional IR camera for Windows Hello functionality.
