Reviews for the HP ZBook Studio G3

80.1% HP ZBook Studio G3 Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
Too ambitious? The HP ZBook Studio G3 is the latest edition of the ZBook-series and follows the trend towards a slimmer device with powerful components. HP delivers a really good device in many aspects; however there are significant limitations in terms of emissions and the battery runtimes in particular.
80% HP ZBook Studio G3 Review: Is It Good for Business?
Source: Business News Daily English
HP’s ZBook Studio G3 is powerful, but so are most competing workstation laptops. What sets this system apart is its relatively thin and lightweight design, which is surprisingly commuter-friendly. You also get a durable design, excellent security options and a comfortable keyboard. On the other hand, the ZBook Studio G3’s dim display is a bit disappointing, and so is its modest battery life.

80% Meet the world's fastest laptop

Is it worth the money? If you need a portable ISV-certified notebook, certainly. No workstation laptop we’ve tested combines a chassis this slim and light with performance this fast. It stands at the pinnacle of workstation laptop design, with only the Dell Precision M3800 for (distant) company, a slender workstation laptop that can currently only be specified with a Haswell Intel Core i7.

NVIDIA Quadro M1000M: High-end workstation graphics card based on the GM107 Maxwell architecture with 512 shaders and a 128-Bit wide memory bus. 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.  
6820HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
