HP ZBook Studio 16 G9 laptop review: Workstation with 120 Hz DreamColor display

Nvidia RTX A2000 and Alder Lake i7. For the ninth generation of its ZBook Studio mobile workstation, HP is using a larger 16-inch display in the 16:10 form factor, and the DreamColor screen now runs at 120 Hz. A Core i7-12800H and the professional Nvidia RTX A2000 provide sufficient performance.

HP's ZBook Studio is a high-quality and slim mobile workstation that stands in direct competition to models such as the Dell Precision 5560 or the Lenovo ThinkPad P1. While it does house powerful components, the focus on mobility is greater compared to HP's much bulkier ZBook Fury series.

The new ZBook Studio 16 G9 offers several major upgrades, as HP has made the switch from the 15.6-inch display (16:9) of the old G8 model to new 16-inch panels in the 16:10 form factor, accompanied by a completely new case. A wide range of configurations are on offer, especially in terms of graphics cards. Our ~US$ 3,300 expensive review device is well equipped, as the current Core i7-12800H processor from Intel is supported by 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD. A 4K DreamColor panel with 120 Hz also comes into play, and demanding graphics processing is handled by the professional Nvidia RTX A2000 (comparable to the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti).

Case - ZBook with aluminum case

Even though not immediately obvious, HP uses a completely new case for the new ZBook Studio 16 G9. Edges at the back are still angular, but the rest of the case is now a little rounder. Compared to the regular EliteBook models (silver), this model sports a darker gray, which is clearly noticeable in the comparison picture below. As soon as you open the screen panel, you immediately notice the narrow screen edges, which look very contemporary.

Qualitatively, the metal case is beyond reproach, since both the base unit and the comparatively thin screen lid are extremely stable. We were thus unable to elicit any creaking noises or image errors. The screen's hinge is also very well adjusted and there is only minimal teetering when changing the opening angle, which extends to a maximum of around 150 degrees.

Compared to the old ZBook Studio 15 G8, the new 16-inch model has become slightly deeper and slightly wider. On the other hand, the new ZBook is one of the lightest models at just over 1.8 kg in this configuration. The 200-watt power adapter adds another 613 grams.

Equipment - 2x Thunderbolt 4

There have been some minor changes to the ports, as the DisplayPort had to make way for another USB-C port. The layout has also changed compared to the predecessor; the fact that the ZBook cannot be charged via USB-C is annoying.

SD Card Reader

HP has swapped the Studio 15 G8's full-fledged SD reader for a microSD reader that fully accepts microSD cards. The reader has a spring mechanism and removing inserted cards can be a bit tricky. In terms of speed, the card reader remains on the same level at around 80 MB/s, but the competition is faster.

Communication

The modern AX211 module from Intel supports the current Wi-Fi 6E standard and we were able to connect to the 6 GHz network of our reference router from Asus without issue. The transfer rates are very good and no problems with the signal quality were detected. A WWAN module (LTE or 5G) is not available in the ZBook Studio 16 G9.

Webcam

In regard to the webcam, the new ZBook Studio is disappointing because it only has a 720p sensor at its disposal. The colors are still okay, but the pictures are just not very sharp and detailed.

Maintenance

Maintenance options have improved somewhat, for HP has reintroduced SO-DIMM RAM bays in the Studio 16 G9, which is why the RAM can now be upgraded once again. This also applies to the M.2-2280 SSD, and the fans can also be cleaned. However, the WLAN module is soldered to the motherboard. According to the spec sheet, models with the Vapor-Chamber cooling should also have two SODIMM slots.

Accessing the components is very difficult because a case screw is located underneath the rear rubber foot. In the middle, the rubber foot can be removed with a bit of pressure, but the material is very hard and deformations quickly occur. The small part is unlikely to survive several removals unscathed.

Input Devices - Smaller and weaker keyboard

Keyboard

Compared to the old model, HP now installs a more compact keyboard without the additional keys on the right side. Actually, there is more than enough room for a full keyboard with number pad here (such as in the ZBook Firefly 16 G9), but this space is used for the speakers. Consequently, this also means that there are no longer dedicated keys for the Page Up & Page Down functions. Overall, the keyboard has moved more towards the screen within the base unit.

The keyboard has a backlight and is water resistant, but the mechanics are not completely convincing. The keystroke is slightly more rickety and overall not quite as good as in the ZBook Firefly 16 G9 (or the identically built EliteBook 865 G9). Compared to the predecessor, it is also a slight step backwards.

Touchpad

HP banished the PointStick and the dedicated mouse buttons from the ZBook Studio a few years ago, and now deploys a large ClickPad instead, which is even larger than the old model at 13.4 x 8.9 cm. The ClickPad scores well: operation is flawless, gliding properties are excellent and the pad produces a muffled, yet high-quality clicking noise.

Display - 4K DreamColor at 120 Hz

HP now uses larger 16-inch displays in the 16:10 format and there are a total of four different panels to choose from: 

  • 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, IPS, matte, 400 nits, low power, 100% sRGB.
  • 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, IPS, matte, 1,000 nits, SureView privacy filter, 72% NTSC
  • 3,840 x 2,400 pixels, IPS, matte, 500 nits, DreamColor, 120 Hz, 100% DCI-P3
  • 3.840 x 2.400 pixels, OLED, 400 nits, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, 100% DCI-P3

Our review device is equipped with the 4K DreamColor panel, which offers excellent subjective picture quality. The matte screen is only slightly grainy, even on bright surfaces, but this is not noticeable when sitting at a normal distance. At the same time, content is extremely sharp and the colors very vivid. We determined an average brightness of good cd/m², but the black value of 0.47 is very high, which results in a decent contrast ratio of "only" ~1,200:1. 

The higher frequency of 120 Hz is also noticeable in practice, as screen movements are very smooth, especially when scrolling through documents or websites, and the response times are also very fast for an IPS panel. PWM flickering is absent and the viewing angle stability is very good, and there are no annoying halos.

The DreamColor display is already very well adjusted ex works. In our analysis with the professional CalMAN software, all deviations are already under important limit of 3 and no color cast is present. We were able to squeeze a little more out of the panel with our own calibration, but this difference is only measurable, not perceptible. 

However, we are still not completely satisfied because, compared to earlier DreamColor models, only the DCI-P3 color space saw complete coverage for some time, whereas this used to be AdobeRGB. Furthermore, there used to be DreamColor software that could be used to switch the color space, so you could work in the sRGB color space, for example.

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
6.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.1 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
15.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.9 ms rise
↘ 8.4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 19 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors, you can work comfortably with the ZBook Studio 16 G9. Thanks to the matte surface and the good brightness, screen content is easily visible, even on bright days. Only direct reflections from light sources should be avoided.

Performance - Alder Lake and lots of GPUs

HP offers the ZBook Studio 16 G9 with either the Core i7-12800H or the Core i9-12900H, both of which are from Intel's current Alder Lake generation and support vPro. In terms of graphics card selection, however, you can choose from Nvidia's entire portfolio of professional GPUs, ranging from the RTX A1000 up to the RTX A5500 with 16 GB of VRAM. The professional AMD Radeon Pro 6600M is also available. If you don't need any special driver certifications, HP still offers the latest GeForce GPUs (RTX 3060 to RTX 3080 Ti). The ZBook also offers two SODIMM slots (DDR5-4800 RAM) for a maximum of 64 GB (2x 32 GB).

 
 

Processor - Core i7-12800H

The Core i7-12800H combines 6 fast performance cores with 8 efficiency cores. In principle, this corresponds to the regular Core i7-12700H, but achieves minimally higher Turbo frequencies and also supports Intel's vPro technology. Performance values in the ZBook Studio 16 G9 are very good, as the processor is able to consume a maximum of 88 watts and levels off at 70 watts under sustained load. During our Cinebench R15 loop, the processor recovers very quickly and is also able to utilize the high Turbo clock very well. Single-core results are also excellent. Taking all CPU benchmarks together, the new model is 30% faster than the previous ZBook Studio 15 G8 with the Core i9-11950H.

On battery power, the processor can draw on a maximum of 60 watts, which is why multi-core performance is slightly lower (-18%). More CPU benchmarks are available here.

HP uses the fast PCIe 4.0 Micron 3400 SSD with a storage capacity of 1 TB (880 GB available after the first start-up). Transfer rates are very high and there is only a minimal performance drop after a few minutes, even under permanent load, but this does not matter in practice. More SSD benchmarks are available here.

Graphics card - Nvidia RTX A2000

GPU-Z RTX A2000
GPU-Z RTX A2000

The Nvidia RTX A2000 is a professional GPU based on the GA107 chip and shares many similarities with the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. Despite the identical designation, the RTX A2000 received an upgrade this year: instead of 4 GB GDDR6 VRAM, it now houses 8 GB of VRAM with a slightly higher speed.

HP uses the 45-watt version of the RTX A2000, whereby an additional 5 watts is available for use by the processor. This makes it one of the slower versions, and the average scores for this GPU in our database are also slightly higher. In terms of raw performance, the RTX A2000 in the ZBook Studio 16 G9 is roughly on par with the M1-Pro-GPU in the MacBook Pro 16.

The RTX 3070 of the old Studio 15 G8 is of course superior in terms of raw performance, but in the professional tests, the RTX A2000 occasionally has clear advantages thanks to the professional drivers. Moreover, the performance of the RTX A2000 remains completely stable under permanent load, which is evident in the 3DMark stress test as well as in our Witcher 3 loop. Gaming is also possible with the ZBook; depending on the title, it often offers enough power for high to maximum details in Full HD.

On battery power, the GPU's power consumption is limited to 35 watts, which corresponds to a deficit of around 20%. More GPU benchmarks are listed in our tech section.
