81% HP ZBook 14u G5 (i7-8550U, Pro WX 3100) Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
Based on the EliteBook. The HP ZBook series has been updated to Intel Kaby Lake Refresh processors. HP has also significantly changed the design and is one which we have already seen during our recent EliteBook 840 G5 review. The ZBook 14u G5 should be able to provide enough computing power thanks to its AMD Polaris GPU. Find out whether HP has achieved this in our HP ZBook 14u G5 review.

AMD Radeon Pro WX 3100: Entry level workstation graphics card based on the Polaris 12 chip like the consumer counterpart Radeon RX 540. Uses 512 shaders (8 compute units) and a 64 Bit GDDR5 memory system (96 GB/s).

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

14.00":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.
