HP ProBook 450 G7 Core i7 Laptop Review: Is It Better Than The Ryzen 7 ProBook 455 G7?

How the turn tables. It used to be that users would buy AMD laptops over Intel knowing full well that the less expensive AMD laptop would be slower. The latest Ryzen processors have flipped this upside-down to not only be cheaper, but also faster than the Intel version. We compare the Intel ProBook 450 G7 to the AMD ProBook 455 G7 to see just how much of an advantage the latter has over the former.

Earlier last month, we had checked out the AMD-powered HP ProBook 455 G7 and found it to be packed with useful features considering the ~$1000 price point. The HP ProBook 450 G7, which is the Intel version of the ProBook 455 G7, is identical save for the obvious change in processors and other minor tweaks. Potential customers will inevitably ask themselves: Which is the better deal?

Our ProBook 450 G7 test unit today comes from CUKUSA equipped with the Intel 10th gen Comet Lake-U Core i7-10510U CPU and GeForce MX250 GPU for approximately $1100 USD or more depending on how much storage or RAM is configured. This gives us an excellent opportunity to directly compare the Intel ProBook 450 G7 to the AMD ProBook 455 G7 in key aspects ranging from battery life to fan noise and performance. Additional details on the keyboard and other physical features can be found on our review of the ProBook 455 G7 since the two systems share the same chassis design.

Case

The chassis remains visually identical to the ProBook 455 G7 and even last year's ProBook 450 G6 to make it the second year running that HP is sticking to the same design. OEMs will typically use the same chassis for two or three years before finally introducing a brand new look meaning that users will have to wait until at least the ProBook 450 G8 or ProBook 450 G9 before seeing a full-on refresh.

Security

Fingerprint reader, vPro, Sure View, and IR camera are all optional while the webcam privacy shutter comes standard. More advanced software features from HP like Sure Click, Sure Start, BIOSphere, Client Security, and Sure Sense are included as well much like on the pricier EliteBook series.

Maintenance

Servicing requires a Philips screwdriver and flat edge. The plastic bottom panel takes some patience to remove because its edges and corners are latched very tightly to the base of the chassis.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no included extras in the box outside of the AC adapter and paperwork. The standard one-year limited warranty applies if ordered from either HP.com or CUKUSA.com with options to extend up to three years. CUKUSA will cover any parts they add themselves such as RAM or storage for three years.

Display

Our Intel ProBook comes with an LG Philips panel in contrast to the AU Optronics panel on our AMD model. The contrast ratio is much shallower on the LG Philips panel, but both panels are otherwise similar in terms of color space, brightness, and response times. HP offers other options ranging from the lesser 768p up to even a 1000-nit 1080p panel with Sure View privacy to limit viewing angles.

* ... smaller is better

Color space is narrow at just 36 percent and 56 percent of AdobeRGB and sRGB, respectively, to indicate a budget panel. Most mid-range Ultrabooks these days cover >90 percent of sRGB for noticeably deeper and more vibrant colors. This shouldn't be an issue so long as your workloads don't require accurate colors.

X-Rite colorimeter measurements reveal poor RGB balance out of the box which can fortunately be fixed with an end-user calibration. Colors still becoming increasingly inaccurate the higher the saturation level due to the limited color space mentioned above. Blue in particular is represented less accurately than other colors.

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
30.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.6 ms rise
↘ 10.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 77 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
35.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.6 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 30 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.8 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17699 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is poor due to the low brightness of the backlight. In fact, maximum brightness drops from 259.8 nits to 224.3 nits when running on battery power no matter the Intel Command Center settings. Configure with the 1000-nit panel option if you plan on using this laptop outdoors frequently.

Performance

CPU options range from the Core i3-10110U up to the Core i7-10610U with vPro support while GPU options range from the integrated UHD Graphics 620 up to the GeForce MX130 or MX250. These are common processors as found on most Ultrabooks in contrast to the Core-H or GeForce GTX options on high-performance alternatives like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme.

Nvidia Optimus comes standard for graphics switching if configured with a GeForce GPU.

Processor

CPU performance is disappointing at up to 30 percent slower than the average Core i7-10510U in our database. Worse yet, the competing Ryzen 7 4700U in the ProBook 455 G7 is able to offer over two times the raw processor performance even after adjusting for any throttling on both systems. The Core i7-10510U in the ProBook 450 G7 runs more like a cheaper Core i5 instead. We made sure to set our test unit to High Performance mode prior to these tests, but results would not improve.

System Performance

PCMark results are where we expect them to be relative to other laptops with the exact same CPU and GPU despite the slower CPU performance mentioned above. The ProBook 445 G7 is able to outscore our Intel unit in Digital Content Creation likely because PCMark has always been unreliable when it comes to systems with discrete GPUs like our GeForce-powered ProBook.

Storage Devices

CUKUSA likes to equip a lot of its laptops with the 1 TB Crucial P1 CT1000P1SSD8 SSD which is a mid-range PCIe x4 NVMe drive with theoretical sequential read and write rates of up to 2000 MB/s and 1700 MB/s, respectively. Even so, transfer rates top out at about 1400 to 1600 MB/s on our ProBook even when under optical conditions.

GPU Performance

The discrete Nvidia GPU is performing where we expect it to be relative to the average GeForce MX250 in our database. Performance is about 40 to 50 percent faster than the integrated Radeon RX Vega 7 in the ProBook 445 G7 and at least two to three times faster than the aging integrated UHD Graphics 620. However, it's worth noting that our ProBook 445 G7 was running on single-channel RAM only meaning that its RX Vega 7 could perform much closer to the GeForce MX250 if configured with dual-channel RAM.

Emissions

System Noise

The internal fan will be idle during most low loads like browsing or word processing for a completely silent experience. At worst, the fan may jump up to 31 dB(A) or 34 dB(A) which are still manageable levels. Any pulsing behavior is kept to a minimum.

Fan noise picks up significantly when running higher loads like gaming where it can range from 37.5 dB(A) up to 47 dB(A) if fully stressed. This makes the ProBook louder than most other business laptops which is the price to pay for having a more powerful discrete GeForce MX GPU.

Cooling solution consists of a single 50 mm fan with two copper heat pipes
