Reviews for the HP EliteBook 850 G4-Z2W91EA

HP EliteBook 850 G4 review – HP’s surprisingly expensive business solution
Source: Laptop Media English
All in all, the EliteBook 850 G4 is a good notebook but a bit overpriced. You should really consider getting the base configuration with Intel HD Graphics 620 instead of the AMD Radeon R7 M465 as our stress tests show exceptionally high thermals and poor heat dispersion on the surface of the notebook during heavy workload and you will save a few bucks along the way. It seems that the current GPU isn’t the best choice given the current cooling design but it’s still able to run some of the latest titles at decent frame rates. Moreover, make sure the TN panel will suit your needs or you can go for Lenovo’s ThinkPad T570, which is in the same ballpark as the EliteBook 850 G4 price-wise but sports a decent IPS panel. Another great alternative to consider is the Dell Latitude E5570.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
