Reviews for the HP EliteBook 8740w-VG316AV

80% HP EliteBook 8740w Review
Source: Maximum PC English
Of course, the Nvidia Quadro 5000M—a high-end Fermi GPU with 320 CUDA cores and a memory bandwidth of 76.8GB/s—does much more than just play games. To test the 8740w’s capabilities as a graphics workstation, we ran the SpecViewperf11 OpenGL-based workstation benchmark on the notebook. While the 8740w made an impressive showing on SpecViewperf11’s individual tests, its overall performance didn’t quite measure up to what you could expect from even a relatively less-expensive desktop workstation.

NVIDIA Quadro 5000M:

Fermi-based mobile workstation graphics card with ECC RAM and DP floating point support. Likely based on the GF100 chip / GeForce GTX 480M, but with with less shaders.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.  


920XM: Fastest Core i7 laptop CPU in 2009 but with a TDP of 55 Watt it is pretty power hungry. Due to the Turbo Mode, the CPU can run with up to 3.2 GHz. Because of the Extreme tag, the multiplier is not locked, and therefore the CPU is easy to overclock.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
