HP ZBook Studio G5 (i7, P1000, 4K) Workstation Review

Benjamin Herzig, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (translated by Benjamin Herzig), 11/25/2018

Metal Gear Solid. The ZBook Studio is now available in its third iteration – though it may seem a bit odd that this model is named "G5". Apart from the weird naming, the ZBook Studio G5 seems to be a promising piece of hardware with a combination of many desirable features: A large battery, a 4K display and a Unibody chassis – what could go wrong?

"ZBook" – this brand name is not very old. Since 2013, HP's mobile workstations bear this name; before, they were part of the EliteBook laptop series. Since then, ZBooks have established themselves in the workstation sector and HP has continued to expand the line. In 2015, the manufacturer added the first HP ZBook Studio to the line, complementing more classic workstations like the ZBook 15 G3 and the ZBook 17 G3. The new ZBook Studio G3 was different from the existing ZBooks since it combined a slim chassis design with very powerful processors of the Intel Core H-series. 

In 2018, HP released the third generation of the ZBook Studio. The new model ZBook Studio G5 is a complete redesign from its predecessor, the HP ZBook Studio G4, a complete redesign. Also, for the first time, the ZBook Studio is now available in a multimedia-version, which is carrying the brand HP EliteBook 1050 G1. The biggest difference between the EliteBook and the ZBook is the different GPU The chassis design is, apart from the slightly darker ZBook-color, identical. That is why we point to the review of the HP EliteBook 1050 G1 for detailed information on the chassis, the connectivity and the input devices.

HP, Dell and Lenovo constitute the "Big Three" of the PC market. These manufacturers dominate the workstation sub-market as well, which points to the Dell Precision 5530 and the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 as the main competitors to the ZBook Studio G5. The Apple MacBook Pro 15 2015 also serves a similar customer group as the ZBook Studio, even though it is more of a multimedia than a workstation laptop. HP also makes a machine that is pretty similar to the ZBook Studio G5 in some way, which could also be considered to be a competitor: The ZBook 15u G5 is a thinner workstation as well, which differentiates itself from the ZBook Studio G5 through the use of lower-voltage processors.

Our review-unit contains the Intel Core i7-8750H, a 512 GB SSD, 16 GB RAM, a 4K UHD display and the Nvidia Quadro P1000. This configuration costs roughly €2,500 in Germany and roughly $2,300 in the USA.

There are a number of different 15.6-inch screen options. Our review-unit for example sports a matte 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) screen, but the ZBook Studio is also available with a matte FHD (1,920 x 1,080) screen with 400 cd/m². Additionally, there is a matte 4K UHD panel, which sports the 'Dreamcolor' name. This LCD is supposed to be exceptionally bright (600 cd/m²) and colorful (100% AdobeRGB). These are the three display options that are available right now. In the spec-sheet, HP lists a glossy FHD screen with the 'SureView' privacy-filter and 650 cd/m² brightness. All offered LCD panels are based on IPS technology.

The non-Dreamcolor 4K UHD panel in our unit is supposed to hit 400 cd/m² of brightness according to HP. It certainly does reach this level of brightness and even manages to exceed it with an average brightness of 412 cd/m². This means that the used LCD panel by AUO is brighter than the nominally identical AUO screen in the HP EliteBook 1050 G1 – another example for the always-popular variance in part quality.

Compared with the competition, the display performs well enough in terms of brightness. The LCD panels used in the Dell Precision 5530 and Apple MacBook Pro 15 2018 are brighter, but the screen of the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 is slightly darker. If users wish for an even brighter panel, one must not forget that HP also offers the Dreamcolor screen as an option.

There was no notable PWM; the same is true for backlight bleeding. The brightness distribution of 85% is acceptable. With the naked eye, no dark spots were visible.

There are some deviations when it comes to colors. With a calibration, these deviations, which can be summarized as a blue-tint, can be quickly eliminated. By using the ICC profile we created, the screen displays colors relatively correctly. The contrast-value amounts to 1438:1, thanks to the combination of the high brightness and a low black-value (0.29 cd/m²). Only the 4K UHD LCD of the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 offers a higher contrast.

When it comes to color gamut, the display covers 96% of the sRGB color space. This means that the LCD can show enough colors to make semi-professional photo editing possible. If an even better color-space-coverage is needed, HP still has the Dreamcolor panel up its sleeve.

Screens with a brightness-value of over 400 cd/m² are usable outdoors in principle, no matter if the surface is matte or glossy. In this case, the matte surface is a positive bonus, as it eliminated annoying reflections. The brightness combined with the matte surface should even enable the usage of the ZBook Studio G5 in indirect sunlight.

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
32.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 16.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (25.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
60.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 30 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 96 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (41 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 8964 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Typical for an IPS panel: The viewing-angle-stability is pretty much perfect.

Performance

HP offers the ZBook with a number of different Intel CPU options: Two i5 processors (Core i5-8300H & Core i5-8400H), two i7 processors (Core i7-8750H & Core i7-8850H), two Xeon CPUs (Xeon E-2176M & Xeon E-2186M) and the Core i9-8950HK. Theoretically, there should also be a choice when it comes to the dedicated GPU, but in reality, only the Nvidia Quadro P1000 is available. Admittedly, the Nvidia Quadro P2000 is listed in the spec-sheet, but it is simply not available. This means that there is no upgrade, though a GPU-downgrade is possible: The ZBook can be ordered without a dGPU, in which case the Intel UHD Graphics 630 takes care of the graphics. 

In terms of RAM, there are options to order the ZBook with either 8, 16 or 32 GB DDR4-2666-RAM, optionally on the Xeon models as ECC RAM. With the RAM sockets, the ZBook can be upgraded to a maximum amount of 64 GB. Additionally, the ZBook has two M.2 2280 slots for SSDs as well, so it is a very upgradeable machine. Ex factory, the HP laptop can be configured with 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB or 2 TB.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-8750H is one of the most used processors of the Coffee Lake H series, which includes very powerful CPUs with a TDP of 45 W. In the case of the i7-8750H, there are six CPU cores, which make this CPU a hexa-core chip. Those cores have a clock-speed-range of 2.2 to 4.1 GHz.

This maximum turbo-boost is not reached in the Cinebench multicore loop. Instead, the CPU cores can achieve 3.9 GHz and hold that clock-speed for 30 seconds, consuming 60 W while doing so. After 30 seconds, the consumption is limited to 45 W, which means that the CPU works with 3 GHz. In the 30-minute long loop, this power level can be retained for the remainder of the test, the higher performance-level of 3.9 GHz is only achievable in the very first iteration of the test.

Compared with the competitors Dell Precision 5530 and the Lenovo ThinkPad P1, the ZBook Studio G5 achieved roughly the same level of performance. Under sustained load, the HP notebook delivered the lowest performance on average, but the difference is pretty small. Overall, the CPU performance of the ZBook Studio G5 is very good. However, CPU upgrades beyond the Core i7-8750H will most likely not result in an increased multicore-performance. The cooling system is already working to capacity here.

While using the ZBook without an attached charger, the CPU performance is reduced. Instead of 1100 points, the ZBook Studio G5 just reaches roughly 950 points in the Cinebench R15 multicore test.

GPU

GPU-Z Nvidia Quadro P1000
GPU-Z Nvidia Quadro P1000

The Nvidia Quadro P1000 is a CAD-optimized GPU of the lower middle-class. More detailed comparisons with other GPUs are possible with our GPU benchmark-list.

It is not surprising that the Quadro P1000 is slower than the Quadro P2000. The Max-Q version of the Quadro P2000 is faster in all benchmarks as well. More interesting is the comparison with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q, which is used in the almost identical HP EliteBook 1050 G1. The Quadro P1000 is 15 to 20% slower than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q in the 3DMark-benchmarks. In the LuxMark test, the consumer GPU is also clearly faster.

The GPU performance is not limited when the machine is running on battery.

Gaming Performance

Gaming is certainly not the specialty of a workstation, but a little bit of fun with a game after a long day of work is not necessarily a bad thing. The Quadro P1000 offers a basic ability to play modern games. However, it should be noted that games that are more recent would not be playable with the maximum details or in 4K UHD. Compared with the GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q in the EliteBook 1050 G1 , the GeForce easily beats out the Quadro when it comes to playing games, because it simply offers more performance overall.

The performance that the Quadro P1000 does offer is available even under continuous load, which is what our Witcher 3 loop shows.
