Reviews for the HP ZBook 15u G5 2ZC05EA

80.2% HP ZBook 15u G5 (FHD, i7-8550U) Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
Too much Office, not enough Workstation. The ZBook 1xu series is at the lower end of HP workstation devices. These models are based on the EliteBook to save costs. Find out in this review of the ZBook 15u G5 why this concept still doesn’t work.
HP ZBook 15u G5 review – ultra-mobile workstation
Source: Laptop Media English
Although the good performance of HP ZBook 15u G5 was entirely expected, the model surprised us with a great multitude of merits. The reliability and rigidity are very important for business machines and the HP company has made sure its 15u G5 is able to withstand 14 of the MIL-STD-810G military tests for work in harsh environments. Despite that, the model weighs just 1.77 kg and it also doesn’t lack elegance given the thickness of the aluminum body of just 18.25 mm.

Ревю на HP ZBook 15u G5 – ултра мобилна работна станция
Source: Laptop Mag English
Въпреки че доброто представяне на HP ZBook 15u G5 беше напълно очаквано, моделът все пак ни изненада приятно с много от своите качества. Надеждността и здравината са много важни за бизнес машините, а от HP са се погрижили 15u G5 да издържа на цели 14 от MIL-STD-810G военните тестове за работа при сурови условия. Въпреки това моделът тежи едва 1.77 килограма, а пък не му липсва и елегантност, имайки предвид дебелината на алуминиевото тяло от 18.25 мм.
Positive: Slim size and light weight; long battery life; comfortable keyboard; nice design. Negative: Poor display.

AMD Radeon Pro WX 3100 Mobile: 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). With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
