HP ProBook 445 G7 and 455 G7 launching April with 7 nm AMD Ryzen 7 4700U options
In January of 2019, HP announced the 14-inch ProBook 445 G6 and 15.6-inch ProBook 455 G6 each equipped with the Ryzen 7 2700U. Now, HP is ready to launch their respective successors with the ProBook 445 G7 and ProBook 455 G7 each equipped with AMD's latest third generation of Renoir processors.
As detailed by the specifications sheets below, both models can be configured with the Ryzen 3 4300U, Ryzen 5 4500U, or Ryzen 7 4700U. In fact, both systems are essentially identical in storage, RAM, wireless, ports, and even display resolution. These AMD models will complement the Intel-based ProBook 440 and ProBook 450 series.
There are no other visual changes to the chassis between the ProBook G6 and ProBook G7 models meaning that this yearly refresh is mostly a processor swap. Nonetheless, the CPU update should provide exceptionally faster gen-to-gen performance without impacting temperatures or battery life as the jump from the AMD Ryzen 2000U/3000U series to the newer Ryzen 4000U series is quite significant.
