HP Envy 17 is now lighter and gets upgraded to Intel Tiger Lake and NVIDIA MX450 graphics
Alongside the upgraded Envy x360 15 lineup, HP, today, also announced a refreshed Envy 17 powered by Intel Tiger Lake. Actually, the HP Envy 17 featuring the Tiger Lake Core i7-1165G7 was already available at a discounted price last November. However, that model could offer only the NVIDIA GeForce MX330 as a dGPU option. The 2021 HP Envy 17 now bumps the dGPU to the NVIDIA GeForce MX450.
Similar to the new HP Envy x360 15, this year's HP Envy 17 also brings in a few design changes such as a 19% larger touchpad and a lighter chassis that now weighs at about 2.5 kg. HP offers a 17.3-inch screen both FHD and UHD options — the 4K option comes factory color-calibrated and is an OLED panel.
The default configuration offers 12 GB of DDR4-3200 non-user accessible RAM and a 512 GB PCIe SSD along with 32 GB of Intel Optane H10 memory, but buyers can optionally configure up to 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB PCIe storage.
The Envy 17 comes with HP's standard suite of features including a physical camera shutter, HP Display Control, HP QuickDrop, AI noise removal, HP Enhanced Lighting, and thermal profiles for optimizing performance, skin temperature, and system noise.
The HP Envy 17 will be available in Natural Silver from April via BestBuy and HP.com at prices starting from US$999.99.
