HP Spectre X360 15 Late 2019 Convertible Review: Comet Lake Core i7 with GeForce MX Graphics

Great looks, shaky GPU performance. It's one of the heftier and better-looking convertibles for sure, but performance becomes a bit unsteady when under higher loads. Power users may want to consider the faster Core H and GTX SKUs instead.

At CES 2020, HP unveiled a refreshed Spectre x360 15 with narrower bezels, new CPU options, and an unspecified GeForce GPU that will more than likely be a yet-to-be-announced next generation GeForce offering. The 2019 model we are reviewing today directly precedes the 2020 Spectre x360 15 with a Comet Lake-U quad-core Core i7-10510U CPU, GeForce MX250 GPU, and 4K UHD IPS display for about $1300 USD on CUKUSA.com.

When compared to the 2018 Spectre x360 15, the 2019 model includes plenty of changes both internal and external. Nonetheless, we recommend checking out our existing review on the 2018 model since they still share several characteristics. The HP Spectre x360 15 competes directly with other ~$1000 15.6-inch laptops including the Dell XPS 15 and XPS 15 2-in-1, Lenovo IdeaPad S740, Lenovo Yoga C940 15, and the Asus ZenBook 15.

Case

For the 2019 model, HP trimmed the two rear corners for a sharper and more unique visual style. The oddly positioned fingerprint reader on the 2018 model has also been moved back to the right palm rest for easier access. Everything else remains nearly the same meaning that these gen-to-gen changes are mostly superficial. The chassis is still one of the stronger and more rigid designs when compared to the Asus ZenBook 15, Lenovo Yoga C940, or the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1.

Our main complaint relates mostly to the weight of the system rather than the overall look and feel. Tablet mode is unwieldy for even short periods as the system is just over 2 kg.

Chassis dimensions and weight are essentially identical to the older 2018 design despite the external and internal differences between them. Users will have to consider the 2020 Spectre x360 15 for a more noticeable reduction in size since the newer model will have much narrower top and bottom bezels.

Connectivity

Port options and positioning have changed from the 2018 model. Whereas the older model included a full-size SD reader, the newer model accepts MicroSD only. All other ports are back including the dual Thunderbolt 3 ports. Still, it's disappointing to see just one USB Type-A port for such a large form factor.

SD Card Reader

Thankfully, the spring-loaded MicroSD reader offers the same performance as the full-size SD reader on the 2018 model. Transferring 1 GB of photos from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 7 seconds not unlike on the Dell XPS 15.

Communication

The Intel AX201 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 speeds and integrated Bluetooth 5 in contrast to older Ultrabooks with the slower Intel 9560. We experienced no connectivity issues during our time with the test unit.

Maintenance

HP discourages end-user tinkering through several means. Firstly, there are two types of screws - Philips and Torx - instead of just one. Secondly, most of the screws are hidden beneath the fragile rubber footing. Thirdly, the edges and corners are sharp meaning gloves and/or sharp tools are recommended. And lastly, once you finally remove the bottom panel, the 2x SODIMM slots are protected by an aluminum housing. It'll take some patience to open up the bottom for any sort of servicing.

There is not much to upgrade outside of the dual SODIMM slots and single M.2 2280 storage bay.

Accessories and Warranty

Extras include a faux leather carrying case and an active pen with two extra pen tips and a AAAA battery. A velvet cleaning cloth would have been a nice addition to the already generous set.

The standard one-year limited warranty applies with plenty of externsion options if purchased directly from HP. CUKUSA can cover specific components for three years including RAM and storage.

Input Devices

Keyboard and Trackpad

HP hasn't changed the keyboard or clickpad from the 2018 model and so our existing comments apply here on the 2019 model. The keyboards on Spectre and EliteBook laptops are some of our favorites on an Ultrabook because they tend to feel firmer with stronger feedback than most other Ultrabooks including the ZenBook 15 or XPS 15. On the flip side, key clatter is slightly louder than on a ThinkPad T series.

The 2:1 clickpad is the same size yet again (12 x 6 cm) with smooth cursor control no matter the gliding speed. The integrated mouse keys are moderate in clatter and satisfactory in feedback but could have been firmer overall.

Display

Our late 2019 Spectre x360 15 uses the same AU Optronics AUO30EB controller as found on the Whiskey Lake-U 2019 Spectre x360 15. HWiNFO was unable to pull the panel name from our test unit, but it's safe to say that this is the same 4K panel as found on our earlier 2019 unit since characteristics like color coverage, contrast ratio, and response times are not all that different between them. This unfortunately means that display brightness has not improved and that ghosting remains very noticeable due to the slow black-white and gray-gray response times. The pricier OLED SKU should address both of these drawbacks.

Interestingly, the older 2018 Spectre x360 15 uses a 4K UHD panel from BOE with faster response times for slightly less ghosting than the AU Optronics panel on this 2019 unit.

* ... smaller is better

Color space is nearly identical to what we recorded on the 2018 Spectre x360 15 at approximately 61 percent and 94 percent of AdobeRGB and sRGB, respectively. Other 4K panels offer wider gamuts such as the Sharp and Samsung on the MSI Prestige 15 and Dell XPS 15 7390, respectively.

Further measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter show the display to be well-calibrated out of the box. Color temperature, however, is a bit on the cool side at 7070. Calibrating the display ourselves improves both RGB balance and the average grayscale deltaE from 3.2 to 2.

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
40.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20.4 ms rise
↘ 20.4 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. » 97 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
56.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 26 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 92 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.5 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: 50 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17113 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility has not improved from the 2018 model. Glare from the glossy screen is inevitable and more noticeable than on the competing Lenovo Yoga C940-15IRH since the display is dimmer. Viewing angles are wide for excellent readability in both portrait and landscape modes so long as glare can be kept to a minimum.

Performance

The Spectre x360 15 family is one of the few to offer both 15 W Core-U and 45 W Core-H Intel CPUs and both GeForce MX and GTX GPU SKUs for a very wide range of performance options. The performance difference between a SKU with the Core i7-10510U and GeForce MX250 and one with the Core i7-9750H and GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q, for example, can be well over 2x. HP offers no Core i5 options here unlike on the competing Dell XPS 15.

LatencyMon shows no DPC latency issues only when the wireless is disabled.

 

Processor

Raw CPU performance is just a hair faster than the Core i7-8565U that the Core i7-10510U replaces. In fact, it's only about 4 to 5 percent faster than the two-generation old Core i7-8550U in the 2018 Spectre x360 15. Users looking for a more significant performance boost should opt for the Core i7-8750H or i7-9750H SKUs or alternatives with the hexa-core Core i7-10710U instead.

Performance sustainability is average. When running CineBench R15 Multi-Thread in a loop, the initial score of 591 points would drop by about 8 percent over time. Scores would then fluctuate between 535 and 555 points as shown by our graph below due to fluctuating clock rates.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-10510U for more technical information and benchmarks.

System Performance

The HP Envy 17 is one of the very few laptops to offer the same Core i7-10510U CPU and GeForce MX250 GPU as our Spectre. PCMark results are very nearly the same between them and they are almost consistently ahead of the 2018 Spectre x360 15 as well. Only the GPU-bound PCMark Digital Content Creation score is lower than expected.

While Nvidia Optimus is included, we had issues getting it to work manually since the Nvidia Control Panel would not install or launch on our test unit for reasons unknown. Meanwhile, GeForce Experience would work without issues.

Storage Devices

Only one internal storage bay is available. The 2 TB Intel 660p PCIe drive in our test unit offers sequential read and write rates of about 1200 MB/s each to be a mid-range NVMe drive. The pricier Samsung PM981 is able to offer nearly two times the read rate while cheaper NVMe dirves like the SK Hynix BC501 have about half the write rate. Expect SSDs from different manufacturers depending on where you purchase the Spectre x360 15.

GPU Performance

The GeForce MX250 is essentially a rebadged MX150 and so performance upgrades are minimal. In fact, 3DMark Fire Strike scores between the MX250 and MX150 in the 2018 Spectre x360 15 are only within 3 percent of each other. Users looking for a more significant graphics upgrade should consider the SKU with the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q or GTX 1650 Max-Q instead.

Gaming Performance

When gaming, expect the Spectre to be just slightly better than an older laptop with GeForce MX150 graphics. Performance over the Xiaomi Mi laptop, for example, can range anywhere between 3 percent to 15 percent on our tested games.

GPU clock rates will cycle when gaming for uneven frame rates as our Stress Test section below will detail. When idling on Witcher 3 for an hour, for example, frame rates will periodically dip just slightly when it should be steady throughout. Most other laptops have steadier GPU clock rates in comparison.

See our dedicated page on the GeForce MX250 for more technical details and benchmark comparisons.
