80.8% HP ZBook 15u G6 Laptop Review: High-contrast 4K screen shortens battery life | Notebookcheck
The sixth generation of HP's ZBook 15u workstation offers a wide range of configuration options. For example, there is a 4K display, an Intel Core i7 CPU and a dedicated GPU available for around $2000. Find out if it is worth changing to this new model or whether users should rather stick to the predecessor in this review.

Putting it straight, the HP ZBook 15u G6 is not really a significant upgrade over the ZBook 15u G5. In fact, it is pretty much the same device with a refreshed processor and GPU. While to some extent both of them work better than their previous versions, the differences are just too small.

We would gladfully give this device an Editor’s choice award if it wasn’t for the sub-par performance – especially in longer tasks. While the CPU is the bomb when it comes to short tasks, like editing an image in Photoshop or doing some Excell maths, as soon as you try to render a video, the clock speeds plummet drastically. It is the same with the graphics card – at the beginning of a benchmark it performs really nice, but when you go five or more minutes into the test, its performance gets halved.

Comment

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

AMD Radeon Pro WX 3200: Entry level workstation graphics card based on the Polaris 12 chip like the consumer counterpart Radeon RX 550. Uses 640 shaders (10 compute units) and a 128 Bit GDDR5 memory system (1000 MHz).

» 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.  

i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

1.588 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.588 kg:


80.8%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
