HP ZBook Studio G7 Laptop Review - The best mobile workstation thanks to vapor chamber and DreamColor?

Powerful components and a great display. Almost all manufacturers offer slim workstations, but you usually do not get very powerful GPUs. HP on the other hand equips its ZBook Studio G7 with powerful Quadro RTX GPUs from Nvidia and also puts a very good DreamColor display with the 4K resolution and HDR in the stylish chassis. Is the vapor chamber cooling powerful enough to utilize the full power of the components?
Andreas Osthoff 👁 (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 🇩🇪 🇫🇷 ...

Slim mobile workstations are very popular and almost every major manufacturer offers corresponding models. HP's ZBook Studio G7 is a direct competitor for devices like the Dell Precision 5550 or Lenovo ThinkPad P1, but these models are limited to GPUs like the Quadro T2000 series. HP on the other hand also offers the Studio G7 with more powerful Quadro RTX Max-Q chips with ray tracing support. Similar to other ZBooks, the manufacturer uses a vapor chamber cooling solution to keep the components cool. In addition to the ZBook Studio G7, HP also offers the ZBook Create, which is equipped with consumer GeForce GPUs instead of the professional Quadro chips. 

Our test unit is an expensive spec for around 3500 Euros. Customers get an Intel Core i9 CPU, the Quadro RTX 3000 Max-Q GPU from Nvidia, 32 GB RAM, and a 1 TB PCIe-SSD. You also get a new version of HP's DreamColor display with 4K resolution HDR400 support. While previous models targeted the AdobeRGB color gamut, the new version "only" covers the smaller P3 gamut. We want to find out whether the slim ZBook Studio can handle the powerful components or if you should get a thicker workstation like the ZBook Fury 15.

Case - ZBook with new aluminum chassis

HP completely redesigned the chassis, but still uses an aluminum shell. The gray color scheme did not change, either, so it is instantly recognizable as a ZBook. The polished sides add to the high overall quality impression and the haptic feedback is better compared to the rivals from Dell or Lenovo and comparable to Apple. Fingerprints are not a big problem, either, thanks to the matte surfaces.

The base unit tapers off towards the front, so the overall devices appears very compact. The stability of the base unit is excellent and we could neither dent the keyboard area, nor produce creaking sounds. HP also adjusted the hinges very well and you can open the lid with one hand. The maximum opening angle is limited to ~145 degrees. The hinges cannot completely prevent some bouncing when you adjust the opening angle.

The display is more flexible than the base unit, but it is no problem and we could not provoke picture distortions even with concentrated pressure. HP also reduced the size of the bezels, but there is still plenty of space underneath the panel and we expect future models to incorporate 16:10 screens.

All the comparison devices are pretty close in terms of footprint. The ZBook Studio is only beaten by the Dell Precision 5550, but the differences are small. The ThinkPad P1 is the biggest, but at the same time also the lightest device. Tipping the scale at ~2 kg, the ZBook is on par with the MacBook Pro 16 and the Precision 5550. HP's ZBook Fury 15 on the other hand is noticeably thicker and heavier.

Connectivity - HP Studio with DisplayPort

HP includes all important port including USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 as well as a regular USB-A port. The Studio also gets a Mini-DisplayPort, while the ZBook Create with GeForce GPUs is equipped with a full-size HDMI output. The ZBook has a proprietary power connector due to the high consumption figures, but you can also charge the battery via USB-C.

SDCardreader

The ZBook Studio offers a full-size SD-card reader, which is also pretty fast. We determine transfer rates of ~170-180 MB/s with our reference card (AV Pro V60). Inserted cards are not completely flush but protrude by 1 cm.

Communication

There is no Ethernet port for wired networks, so you will have to use a Thunderbolt 3 adapter instead. HP also includes the familiar AX201 Wi-Fi module from Intel (Wi-Fi 6), which supports all common standards as well as Bluetooth 5.1.

Our standardized test with the router Netgear Nighthawk RAX 120 determines very good transfer rates between 1.3-1.5 Gbps for the ZBook Studio and we did not experience any issues with the signal quality, either.

Webcam

The webcam offers the usual poor quality with 0.9 MP, but HP does not equip the ZBook Studio G7 with a camera shutter.

Maintenance

The bottom cover is secured by Torx screws (T5) and is easy to remove. However, there is not much to do on the inside; only the M.2-SSD can be replaced. Both the wireless module as well as the memory are soldered onto the mainboard.

Input Devices

Keyboard

The HP Premium Quiet Keyboard offers a great typing experience with precise key strokes and firm feedback. Besides ThinkPad keyboards, the ZBook keyboards are among the best inputs in the mobile segment and typing longer texts is no problem at all. Except for some larger keys (space bar, return), the typing noise is also very quiet.

The keyboard offers a two-stage white background illumination and there is a BIOS setting where you can adjust the duration when the illumination is automatically turned off or kept on indefinitely. Similar to other new HP laptops there is a new functionality for the F12 key, which can be configured by the user.

Touchpad

Similar to previous models of the ZBook Studio, HP does not include a Pointstick, so you can only use the smooth clickpad for cursor movements. The size (11.5 x 7.3 cm) is good and it offers excellent gliding capabilities. Contrary to the larger ZBook Fury 15, there are no dedicated mouse buttons. You can click the lower part of the pad, but this results in a pretty loud clicking noise. We preferred tap-to-click during our test period.

Display - DreamColor 4K

Minor backlight bleeding

Our test unit is equipped with the optional 4K DreamColor display. HP's DreamColor displays are synonymous with high-quality panels, which offer accurate colors as well as wide color gamuts. However, there has been a change: While previous versions targeted AdobeRGB, it is now the smaller P3 color space. 

HP advertises a brightness of 600 nits, which is easily surpassed by our unit with a maximum brightness of 736 nits and still more than 700 nits on average. The black value is still okay at 0.35 cd/m² for such a bright panel, which results in an excellent contrast ratio of more than 2000:1. There is hardly any backlight bleeding; you can only notice it slightly at the edges when you use the maximum brightness in combination with a dark picture.

The display is still not perfect. The subjective picture impression is definitely very good, but bright areas still look a bit grainy due to the matte surface. The response times are also very slow, which results in visible ghosting. There is no PWM flickering.

The DreamColor software, which includes different color profiles, was not pre-installed on our test unit. The calibration out of the box is still very good and it is not really necessary to calibrate the panel. There is no color cast and all colors are already within the important deviation of 3.

We still tested the calibration and you can slightly improve the color accuracy; the according profile is can be downloaded for free in the box above. We can confirm the P3 color gamut, so HP follows the trend that was introduced by Apple a couple of years ago. From a quality standpoint, this is a step down from previous DreamColor panels, which targeted the wider AdobeRGB color gamut.

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
37.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.6 ms rise
↘ 18 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. » 94 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
56.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 27.6 ms rise
↘ 28.8 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 636 (maximum) ms. » 91 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.8 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Once you deactivate the power-saving features in Intel's graphics control panel, you can use the maximum brightness on battery power. It is also possible to use the Studio G7 very comfortably in bright environments thanks to the matte surface. There is no criticism for the viewing angle stability of the display.

Performance - Core i9 and Quadro RTX 3000 Max-Q

Processor

HP offers a couple of 45W Intel processors, but they are still from the familiar Comet Lake generation. Our test unit is equipped with the Core i9-10885H, which can reach up to 5.3 GHz or up to 4.4 GHz, respectively, when you stress all 8 cores simultaneously. HP is very generous in terms of TDP settings at 125W and 70W for sustained workloads. We can hardly see the maximum 125W in the benchmarks, and the consumption quickly drops due to high core temperatures and levels off at 70W, which is sufficient for 8x 3.5 GHz.

The competition uses Intel CPUs as well and the performance of the ZBook Studio G7 is very good. A comparison with AMD CPUs like the Ryzen 7 4800H running at 60W in the XMG Core 15 on the other hand shows that the performance would be much better with Ryzen chips.

The CPU performance is significantly reduced on battery power. The power consumption for the CPU is limited to 35W (8x 2.5 GHz), so the performance drops by ~38% (10074 vs. 6387 points @ CB R23 Multi) when you use all cores.

DPC Latency

Our DPC Latency test shows big spikes, so the ZBook Studio is not suited for real-time audio applications. We also saw some dropped frames during 4K video playback on YouTube.

Replaceable M.2-2280 SSD

There is a single M.2-2280 slot for SSDs that is attached via PCIe 3.0 x4 interface. Our test unit is equipped with a Micron 2300 and a storage capacity of 1 TB; you can use around 900 GB after the initial setup. The transfer rates of the SSD are very high, only modern PCIe 4.0 drives are much faster.

HP uses the efficient Max-Q versions of the Quadro RTX GPUs. The RTX 3000 Max-Q in our test unit is the 60W version, so it is the slowest configuration of this GPU. We expect the two more powerful versions (Quadro RTX 4000/RTX 5000 Max-Q) will also be the slowest versions in terms of TGP.

The GPU runs at up to 1530 MHz during our benchmarks and is usually slightly slower than the average scores in our database for this GPU model. All in all, the results are still good and better compared to the rivals with smaller Quadro GPUs. The performance is also stable; the demanding 3DMark Time Spy stress test is passed at 97.3%.

The GPU performance is heavily reduced on battery power (-64%) and the graphics card is limited to 35W.

Easy workloads are handled by the integrated GPU of the processor. This is definitely an advantage compared to older ZBooks with DreamColor displays, where the iGPU was deactivated.

Gaming Performance

Nvidia's professional drivers handle gaming very well and we did not encounter any compatibility issues during the gaming benchmarks. The gaming performance is roughly comparable with a GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q, so many modern titles run smoothly in 1080p with high settings. However, the GPU is usually too slow for gaming in the native 4K resolution. The gaming performance is stable and there is no drop in longer gaming sessions.
