HP ZBook Create and Studio workstations will be even lighter than the Razer Blade 15 Studio, come with Quadro RTX 5000 and GeForce RTX 2080 Super options
After refreshing its entire Envy series for consumers, HP doesn't want to leave any professionals in the dust. The ZBook workstation series will be getting two new high-performance 15.6-inch ZBook models this year called the ZBook Create and the ZBook Studio.
The ZBook Create and Studio laptops will be identical to each other save for their GPUs. The former can be configured with up to the GeForce RTX 2080 Super while the latter can be configured with up to the Quadro RTX 5000 for an insane level of graphics performance considering the size. In fact, HP is promising up to 7x faster graphics rendering than the MacBook Pro 16 with the Radeon Pro 5500M while weighing less (1.9 kg vs. 2 kg).
Perhaps the most striking feature of the new ZBook is its design. The narrow bezels, 17.5 mm thickness, and sleek looks have all been clearly inspired by the rise of ultra-thin GeForce Studio laptops like the Gigabyte Aero series or the Razer Blade Pro series. In comparison, traditional ZBook laptops like the ZBook G5 are typically boxy and thick with more integrated ports and customizable options than the new ZBook Create or Studio. HP says the slimmer design is 22 percent smaller in volume when compared to the older ZBook models.
HP will reveal exact prices and specifications at a later date closer to the August launch window.
