HP EliteBook 845 G9 in review: 35-watt AMD outclasses Lenovo & Dell

The sixth AMD Ryzen generation plays in the top class. With the Security Edition of the EliteBook, HP is catering to an affluent clientele looking for an uncompromisingly powerful and mobile laptop. In addition, the 14-inch laptop also fulfills high security demands with features such as Sure View, Fingerprint and Wolf Pro software.

Gone are the days when AMD chips were installed only in laptops that did not extend beyond the mid range. Now the brand new Ryzen 6000 generation has caught up and overtaken Intel's processors. What was unthinkable six years ago is reality today: AMD in a 2.5K laptop of the high-end business class. 

But this is not the main strength of the laptop in question, nor its unique selling point. Rather, it is the focus on hardware- and software security that makes the 845 G9 so special. In addition to well-known features such as SureView, a webcam shutter and SmartCard, the laptop offers a lot of software that takes care of the fail-safety aspects of the hardware and account security.

Other competitors in the high-end segment are broadly positioned. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 and Dell's Latitudes - both from the high-end series - attempt to court the favor of buyers with comparable features. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon leads the pack with both an LTE option and Thunderbolt.

Case: Solid laptop from HP

The EliteBook comes in a torsion-resistant aluminum case that is constructed like a box and is sealed off on the bottom with a baseplate. The latter does not play a major role in terms of rigidity, as the "box" with its rounded corners is already stable in itself.

The same applies to the display, which can only be twisted to a limited extent. Pressure on the back hardly causes any dents and no streaks emerge on the panel. The mono-hinge keeps the lid taut enough, but is not too rigid that it prevents opening with one hand. One-finger opening is possible. When opened, the bottom of the screen slides under the chassis and raises it, but only between opening angles of 130 to 180 degrees. 

A small flaw comes to light in the summer heat: the lower display frame is glued, which bulges and remains in this state even after cooling down.

Weight did not seem to get any attention in the development of the Elitebook; the aluminum chassis weighs 1.46 kilograms. Competing devices are much lighter, especially the Elitebook Aero, X1 Carbon und X1 Titanium Yoga, which set lightweight records at 1.2 kilograms.

Equipment: Elitebook plays it safe

The manufacturer makes use of a large range of connections: two Type-A USB ports are available, as well as one HDMI. The fast Type-C ports are already occupied by the power supply on one side; they both accept a DisplayPort monitor. We are at a loss to understand why there wasn't enough space for an SD card reader.

Communication

In addition to a Qualcomm WiFi 6E chip, a Fibocom LTE modem is installed (no 5G), as well as a SimCard slot on the right side. Both chips can be changed. The WiFi module provides high transfer rates both when sending and receiving.

Webcam

HP has really raised the bar with the camera: A 5MP webcam has not been available in standard laptops until now. An infrared camera for Windows Hello login via face recognition is again included, even if it is no longer so visible next to the webcam.

Security

HP integrates numerous security and management solutions. Software-based solutions include HP Maxim Pro Security Edition (1 year), Connection Optimizer, Hotkey Support, Support Assistant, Easy Clean, Power Manager, myHP, Privacy Settings, QuickDrop, Quick Touch and PC Hardware Diagnostics. In this way, HP Maxim Pro Security Edition protects against malware and is geared towards SMBs. The package of management software is not exactly small and goes far beyond a central retrieval of manufacturer updates.

A fingerprint reader and an IR camera (face login) are the obvious security features here, and necessary for multi-factor authentication. The Support Assistant bundles hardware management and software settings in regard to security and is the first point of contact in the event of problems. Network troubleshooting is also carried out here. Many of these features can also be found in the Windows on-board tools, but HP's native solutions do their jobs just fine.

Accessories

Apart from the tiny, 65-watt power adapter that weighs only 302 grams, no other accessories are included in the scope of delivery.

Maintenance

The Elitebook is easy to maintain and upgrade: the manufacturer does not use Torx screws and does not conceal screws under rubber feet or strips. The screws do not fall out of the baseplate after loosening and the baseplate can be removed without special tools or the risk of breaking clips. 

Another positive point: The RAM is not soldered, as in the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s. Two sockets are available, one of which is occupied by a 32 GB SO-DIMM. There is also a socket for the WWAN (M.2 2260) and one for the WiFi module (M.2 2240) along with an SSD (M.2 2280). The battery is replaceable and not glued.   

All essential components are plugged in, except for the APU.

Warranty

HP offers a 3-year parts, labour, and onsite repair warranty (3-3-3) with next business day service for parts and labour.

Input Devices: Laptop keyboard with strong feedback

First things first: HP has removed the TrackPoint and dedicated keys, which will not go down well with traditionalists. In doing so, HP is following the same path that Dell and Lenovo have taken with their business laptops. In the long run, the trackpoint will probably die out.

Keyboard

The keyboard is one of the best for frequent typists. The keys deliver a firm stroke that don't teeter at any stage. The entire keyboard panel, including the palm rest, is grounded in a solid base. Key travel is moderate by laptop standards, accompanied by a crisp pressure point. Clear feedback and a hard stroke make for a strong keyboard in our eyes. The keys have a subtle conical curvature and a spacing of 3.5 millimetres. 

The layout does not pose any challenges: Page up/down keys have been squeezed in above the narrow directional keys, which isn't ideal, but better than doing without them altogether. In favour of a stable chassis, the manufacturer has omitted a row of keys and the numpad on the far right. The position of the delete key right next to power on/off is not so convenient. On the other hand, the latter has to be pressed for a whole second, so no incorrect entries pop up if you mistakenly hit it instead of Del

HP also makes uses of the usual function keys such as volume, key backlighting and flight mode. Special features are the SureView key for eye protection and the freely programmable key on F12. In combination with Alt, Ctrl and Fn, some websites, programmes or files can be stored.

Touchpad

The large ClickPad offers a firm but damped stroke, a barely audible, muffled sound and a short travel. The surface is smooth, but does not feel slippery because friction increases with pressure. Unfortunately, there is no Fn key for quickly switching off the ClickPad. This had no negative impact on typing, for the pad only recognizes a resting palm and thus does not accept any input. In addition, it is centrally located below the keys, which is why the hand only rests on it in exceptional cases.

The 14-inch (35.6 cm diagonal) anti-glare FHD display (1920 x 1080 pixels) is the brightest panel in the field at an average of 744 cd/m². HP specifies a 400 nits IPS panel with 100% sRGB, which we can also confirm. Due to the high luminance, the distribution is uneven, which is noticeable in dark environments at the bottom of the screen. On the other hand, none of this can be seen in daylight or office lighting.

Our review device has a SureView panel with an integrated privacy filter. Like previous SureView panels, there are some special features. SureView only works well in the lower brightness range and is thus hardly usable in bright environments because even the front-sitting user then has limited vision. SureView was inactive for our measurements.

* ... smaller is better

The subjective image impression of the panel is not good because the viewing angles are limited even with the SureView function deactivated and even small deviations from the central sweet spot (both vertically and horizontally) result in a clearly perceptible loss of brightness or contrast. In addition, bright areas appear grainy. No PWM was detected.

Ex factory, our display had a visible bluish tint (grayscale) with a DeltaE of almost five. The colors appeared a little better at 3.5. Calibration with the photo spectrometer helped; we lowered the grayscale DeltaE to 0.9, that of the colors to 1.0. This makes the panel almost perfect for editing images. The smaller sRGB color space is fully reproduced.

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
21 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12 ms rise
↘ 9 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 34 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
31 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 29 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.2 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19661 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Even in bright environments, the matte screen is easy to look at thanks to the high brightness, so long as the screen is not directly in the sun. However, shading always appears the more the user deviates from a direct frontal position, even without active SureView. 

Despite the enormous brightness of up to 850 cd/m², legibility is not always convincing.

Often enough, the image disappears behind a dull shade, as can be seen here.

The viewing angle stability is generally worse than other IPS displays, even without SureView activated. If you activate SureView, the viewing angles are further restricted and the person sitting next to you can no longer see the screen content. So it works as intended, but due to the severe limitations, we recommend the regular FHD panel. If in doubt, you can use external privacy filters (foil), which can also be set aside if they prove too distracting.

Performance: HP's business laptop outclasses Dell & Lenovo

The single fan has to take care of the waste heat alone. This leads to heat but not to bottlenecks.
The single fan has to take care of the waste heat alone. This leads to heat but not to bottlenecks.

With 35 watts, the AMD Ryzen 9 PRO 6950HS is actually a chip for large laptops; it contains eight Zen 3+ cores (Octa-Core CPU) that are clocked at up to 4.9 GHz (turbo). This can even become 16 threads thanks to hyperthreading. HP has integrated the SoC into a small 14-incher with only one fan, plus 32 GB of RAM and a terabyte SSD from Western Digital. Can the cooling handle it?

The Ryzen 9 Pro is the maximum configuration of the EliteBook; smaller configurations start with the Ryzen 5 PRO 6650U, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD, and are also considerably cheaper to buy.

Testing Conditions

We carried out our tests in Performance mode without power saving measures. The HP software does not offer its own Performance mode profiles. This leaves only the Radeon software, which is more responsible for the display and the GPU. We left the graphics profile on Standard and deactivated AMD Vari Bright. 

Processor

The Ryzen 9 PRO 6950HS very briefly runs at 50 watts and 3.85 GHz under load - on all cores. After a few seconds, however, the clock drops to 3.6 GHz, where it remains permanently. Here the processor processes a constant 41 watts. Single-core is unable fully exhaust the clock speed or the power consumption. A very similar picture emerges during the 8-minute Prime95 CPU stress test: briefly at 50 watts, then a drop to 41 watts in order to maintain a temperature of 92 degrees. We discontinued Prime95 after 8 minutes and observed a constant power consumption with a slightly increased clock. All in all, the EliteBook is very load capable, which is also confirmed by the R15 Multi Loop. Apart from Intel, all competitors are far outclassed. 

The CPU benchmarks are also very good: the Ryzen 9 PRO 6950HS comes out on top everywhere and the 11th generation Core i7 is outperformed by 50% in multi-core and by 10% in single core. If you're looking for computing power, you can't go wrong with this APU.

System Performance

However, the EliteBook cannot claim the title for ultimate system performance; the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G2 remains in the lead here, also in the AMD version. But since the scores are close together, it is almost a tie. In the sub-scores, our HP is best in Digital Content Creation, and by far. In tge Crossmark benchmarks, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon G10 is ahead and the ThinkPad T14s G2 is on par.

DPC Latency

In our standardised latency test (internet browsing, YouTube 4K playback, CPU load), the review device shows problems with increased latencies. It is thus not suitable for real-time audio applications with the current BIOS version, but this may change via future updates. During video playback, we observed a high number of 66 dropped frames.

Storage Devices

Western Digital NVMe SN810 1 terrabyte
Western Digital NVMe SN810 1 terrabyte

The EliteBook uses a PC SN810 1TB from Western Digital, which is a 2280 SSD in the M.2 socket. It delivers a good result, but not a great one. Samsung's PM9A1 still seems to work faster in the individual tests and overall. The Western Digital drops off in terms of continuous performance, but some Samsung models also display this behavior, such as the Samsung PM9A1 in the X1 Carbon.

The storage capacity of 1 TB (~780 GB free after start-up) should be sufficient for most users. More SSD benchmarks are available here.
