HP EliteBook 845 G7 review: AMD laptop is also better with Ryzen 5 than with Intel

The price-performance ratio speaks for AMD. With the Ryzen 5 PRO, the 14-incher goes full throttle and outclasses the top models from Intel. In addition, it offers great runtimes, a low noise level, and excellent maintenance options. However, it doesn't manage to achieve the subnotebook-megastar status because of the display.

The HP EliteBook 845 G7 means business with the Ryzen 5 PRO
The HP EliteBook 845 G7 means business with the Ryzen 5 PRO

HP's EliteBooks are aimed at demanding customers who are looking for solid, durable, ergonomic, and high-performance hardware. The price can be a little higher, but in return, you expect numerous connections, the best input devices, and a sleek, manageable design.

All of this seems to come together in the 14-inch HP EliteBook 845 G7, since powerful AMD hardware has been packed into a slim case with comfortable input devices. But in the end, we can't recommend the HP device without reservations. Our review will clarify why.

The EliteBook 845 G7 competes directly with the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s, the Dell Latitude 7410, and the Acer TravelMate P6 P614 in terms of price. The Dynabook Portege X40-G is more expensive, but at 1.2 kilograms, it's a 14-inch lightweight.

Case - Solid business laptop

Aluminum B-Cover with angular feel but little torsional resistance
Aluminum B-Cover with angular feel but little torsional resistance

The chassis consists entirely of an aluminum case that is internally reinforced by plastic bars and frames. This can be appreciated very nicely on the dismantled bottom cover: The plate itself is thin and flexible, but together with the plastic bars, it becomes solid. In terms of feel, the construction makes a solid, durable impression.

The same applies to the hinge, which is nicely tightened. The base with the battery at the front is heavy enough to prevent it from lifting up when being opened. The base is rigid, but it's not completely torsion resistant. If we hold it at the corners, we can twist it considerably, whereby the gap between the frame and the aluminum base plate moves.

The lid with the backside made of aluminum is stiff and resistant to torsion. Slight pressure on the back doesn't cause any changes on the image. The palm rest is firm, and applying force doesn't dent anything either. The same applies to the large ClickPad that has a solid metal base.

At 1.5 kilograms, the EliteBook 845 G7 is a heavy 14-inch model. It can be clearly seen and felt; stability and quality were more important to the manufacturer than weight reductions. A ThinkPad T14s is lighter but still sufficiently stable and of high quality. In our opinion, the EliteBook 845 G7 is a bit more solid.

The EliteBook 845 G7's footprint is a few millimeters smaller, both in width and depth. In return, however, the ThinkPad T14s is also flatter. Only Dell's Latitude 7410 has an even slimmer footprint, but it's also the thickest model in comparison.

Connectivity - Upgradeable laptop

2x USB-C 3.0 with DisplayPort and Power Delivery
2x USB-C 3.0 with DisplayPort and Power Delivery

HP uses USB Type-A and Type-C ports. The latter have no Thunderbolt 3 support, but they can handle DisplayPort (Alt Mode) and Power Delivery. Power supply is provided by a Type-C power adapter at 65 watts, which can also be replaced by a standard power adapter with a round plug if necessary. At least that's what the round power connector on the device suggests. But this is not the case: The available EliteBook 845 power adapters for older models (65/90 watts) have a thicker plug. What fits here is the HP Thunderbolt docking station with a combined cable (230 watts). Due to downward compatibility, this dock works on USB Type-C ports without Thunderbolt support.

Energy-consuming devices can also be connected to the USB Type-C ports but only up to 15 watts.

The two USB-C 3.1 ports also accept monitors, even simultaneously and at 4K resolutions (DisplayPort 1.4 Alt mode). But then supplying the laptop with power becomes difficult, because one Type-C port is occupied by the power adapter.

Speaking of external monitors: The integrated Vega GPU can handle a total of four monitors (internal + three external, via hub or dock); the Intel model is limited to a total of three. Furthermore, this is an HDMI 2.0 output, so 4K signals can also be transmitted at 60 Hz.

It's a pity that Thunderbolt 3 is missing. But this should only play a role in practice if you want to use an external graphics card. With HDMI 2.0, Bluetooth 5.1, and faster RAM (8 GB of DDR4 3200 SDRAM), there are even some benefits for AMD in terms of configuration.

Communication

The wireless module uses modern Wi-Fi 6 (2x2, Intel AX200), which performs slightly above average in the test. A T14s with the same chip performs very similarly here. However, the data throughput of a Wi-Fi 6 AX201, as in the ThinkPad T14 or the Acer TravelMate P6 P614, seems to be unrivaled.

On the right side, there is a tray for a nano SIM. Accessing it is difficult, because the drawer can't be opened without a suitable SIM tool (or a paper clip).

The 720p webcam provides decent results for video calls. As is typical for most laptop system cameras, color recognition is poor, and details are blurry. However, the Acer TravelMate P6 and the Dell Latitude 7410 delivered even worse images. To protect privacy, the camera can be mechanically covered with a shutter.

HP integrates numerous security solutions that can be used depending on the environment. Software-based solutions include HP DriveLock, Automatic DriveLock, HP BIOSphere Gen5 as well as HP Sure Start Gen6 (both firmware protection). TPM 2.0 is integrated into the hardware.

With HP Sure Recover Gen3, the system can be recovered over the network (image recovery), provided that the system is properly set up.

The fingerprint scanner and IR camera are obvious security features, they are necessary for multi-factor authentication. In environments with the highest security demands, face recognition (Windows Hello), fingerprint, and PIN code can be required simultaneously.

The management software package is not exactly small, and it goes far beyond a central application for the retrieval of manufacturer updates. The software package is not preinstalled and can be downloaded on demand. Due to the amount of tools, this is the right strategy.

Here, for example, there's a BIOS Config Utility (BCU), with which BIOS settings can be performed conveniently from within Windows. Naturally, there's a lot that can be done in the BIOS of a sophisticated business laptop like, for example, setting active times or activating remote hardware maintenance.

Maintenance

In terms of maintenance, the EliteBook is a role model: The manufacturer does without Torx screws and doesn't hide any screws under rubber feet or strips. The screws don't fall out of the base cover after having been loosened, and the cover can be removed without special tools or the danger of breakable clips. Accessing the interior should always be this easy.

Praiseworthy: RAM is not soldered like on the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s. Two slots can be populated, and one is occupied by an 8 GB SO-DIMM module. Furthermore, WWAN can be retrofitted (M.2 2240), and the Wi-Fi module (M.2 2240) together with the SSD (M.2 2280) are exchangeable.

Warranty

HP provides a 3-year warranty on spare parts, labor, and on-site repair (3-3-3), including next-business-day service for spare parts and labor. That's a premium warranty.

Input devices - Keyboard suitable for everyday use

The smooth keys with the matte look convince with their clear pressure point and travel as well as the firm stroke. The keypad doesn't yield or bounce at any point. The noise is muffled and thus suitable for libraries or the like.

The keys have a two-stage backlighting that isn't bothersome even in daylight. The key surroundings as well as the labeling are illuminated; the keys themselves remain black. They don't have a conical curvature, a clear difference to the discreetly conical keys of a ThinkPad T14s.

Touchpad

The ClickPad comes in combination with a trackpoint and two buttons. The latter have a clear travel and a muffled, quiet stroke. They are primarily the buttons for the trackpoint, but they can also be used in conjunction with the ClickPad. The latter has a clear pressure point, with the travel being more prominent in the lower area.

With multi-touch gesture support, operations can be done quickly and, depending on your habits, you can swiftly switch between writing and using the trackpoint. The pointer solution of the T14s is considered to be better by many readers. But at the end of the day, it's a matter of getting used to it, because the principle is exactly the same.

The 14-inch (35.6 cm diagonal) nonreflective Full HD display (1920x1080 pixels) is the dimmest panel in our test field at an average of 220 cd/m². This isn't an incorrect measurement, because even HP specifies 250 nits and 45% NTSC in the data sheet. Here, the competition is consistently better positioned, with their panels averaging at just under 400 cd/m².

The 845 G7 is also available with Sure View protection (72% NTSC) and is then supposed to reach a full 1,000 cd/m² of brightness. The resolution remains unchanged at Full HD.

According to the manufacturer, the 845 G7 is also available with a touch panel, but no corresponding models are listed.

The illumination is just about even, but we can see clear screen bleeding at almost all edges when using a black background image.

HP does without PWM for brightness reduction.

The contrast is quite good at 1,261:1, but most competitors can reach this as well. Color reproduction out of the box is good; we can see this in the low Delta E values of 2 and 4 (grayscales, color), respectively. We couldn't improve anything else here even by calibrating with the spectrophotometer.

However, the color space that can be displayed is extremely small at 55% of sRGB, much smaller than on the competitors, which almost hit the 100% mark across the board.

The low brightness doesn't decrease on battery power, but in the sunshine, it causes frustration and limited visibility either way. 220 cd/m² is simply too little, even with a nonreflective display.

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
23 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 10 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. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
37 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20 ms rise
↘ 17 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. » 37 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.1 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 not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14825 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Without a doubt, the viewing angles of the IPS panel are very good, and the screen is clearly visible from all sides. If this is a problem for you because others are trying to take a peek, a privacy filter might help. The device version with Sure View protection would be another option; that is visual protection at the press of a button.

Performance - Ryzen 5; HP chose well

HP EliteBook 845 G7 with strong AMD drive
HP EliteBook 845 G7 with strong AMD drive

With the HP EliteBook 845 G7, the business class is approached with performance, be it with the Ryzen 7 Pro or the Ryzen 5 Pro. As we will show, the corresponding 10th generation Intel processors are completely outclassed. HP doesn't offer smaller 4th generation Ryzen chips.

The graphics solution is essentially an integrated Radeon RX Vega 6 or Vega 7, respectively, with which you can even game a little bit - if you strongly lower the resolution and details.

The entry-level configuration of the EliteBook is equipped with only 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD, but it can be easily retrofitted or upgraded. One SO-DIMM slot is free (2 slots) as well as an M.2 slot for a WWAN card.

Processor

The Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U has six cores and can reach clock speeds of up to 4.0 GHz. The PRO version offers additional security and management functions. AMD Memory Guard, support for Microsoft Endpoint Manager, and guaranteed stability as well as spare part availability are features of the PRO series.

Compared to the faster Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U (option for the 845 G7), the Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U offers two cores less and a 100 MHz lower boost clock speed, but it provides a higher base clock rate in return.

The TDP is configurable from 10 to 25 watts (15 watts by default), making the APU suitable for small and light laptops.

So, how much power is in the fourth generation of Ryzen 5 processors?

We let the Cinebench R15 loop run for 15 minutes and look at the clock rates, heat development, and, most importantly, the results of each run. After a slight performance drop of 2-3%, the APU remains at a high performance level and runs at almost 3.0 GHz on all six cores. This is clearly within the Turbo level (2.1-4.0 GHz).

HP has configured the TDP at 25 watts (long term); at least that's what HWiNFO's CPU Package Power shows. In the first run, there was even a peak of 30 watts, but the APU settles at 23 watts in the course of time. Meanwhile, heat development is enormous, and 100 °C (~212 °F) is reached according to the sensor.

The Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U is, therefore, in good company with its Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U sibling, which runs 14% faster and also with almost no performance drops after the first pass. In our opinion, paying significantly more for the Ryzen 7 model isn't worth it.

All Intel competitors score only half as many points in Cinebench, and the 3rd generation Ryzen 5 predecessor also performs at this level and ends up defeated too.

But we don't want to conceal anything here: The Intel competition can keep up with the Ryzen 5/7 in the single-core tests, especially the Core i7. However, these are more expensive, which is why the price-performance ratio clearly speaks for AMD.

System performance

Powerful laptop performance is still an interaction between multi and single-core performance as well as between RAM, graphics card, and mass storage device. This may be the reason why we don't see the HP EliteBook 845 G7 and the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s consistently leading the PCMark 10 scoreboard. Here, Intel models like the Dell Latitude 7410 or the Acer TravelMate P6 P614 also take the lead from time to time.

What is striking, however, is the dominance of the ThinkPad T14s and EliteBook 845 G7 AMD models in the Digital Content Creation category, in which the two AMD counterparts lead with 19% and 47%, respectively. This is where the strong multi-core computing power comes into play.

Conclusion: If you're looking for powerful laptop performance, there's currently no way around the Ryzen 5 or 7.

Storage

The laptop can accommodate an NVMe SSD in the M.2 2280 format. HP has used a Samsung PM991 here that is weak compared to other SSDs from WDC, Toshiba or Lite-On. The 4K write speed is low, and especially the copying tests in AS SSD turn out extremely bad. We repeated the test and obtained similar results.

Graphics card

The Radeon RX Vega 6 has a little more under the hood than a UHD Graphics 620, but it's well below an RX Vega 7 (Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U).

The performance of the Radeon RX Vega 6 depends on the configured TDP (25 watts here, maximum configuration), the clock speeds in the model, the cooling, and the installed RAM. Since we're dealing with single-channel memory here, graphics can't benefit from the fast DDR4 3200 speeds. This could be the reason for the below-average results of the test device.

Gaming performance

When it comes to games, the HP 840 G7 is not a big player; this may be due to the single-channel memory. The RX Vega 6's performance is consistently subpar, which is evident in every game. The RX Vega 7 (Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U) in the T14s achieves better results with dual channel: Specifically +30 to +100%!

Noise emissions

When it comes to noise emissions, the EliteBook behaves exemplary, and this is not only due to the new measuring microphone. In idle usage, the fan switches off all the time. Under load, it only turns up slightly, so that it remains at a pleasant level at all times. Sometimes moderate ambient noise, like the fan of a PC, will drown out the emission.
