CES 2021 | HP unveils EliteBook 805 G8 business laptop lineup with AMD Ryzen Pro 5000 APUs
HP is adding AMD Ryzen Pro 5000 APU options with integrated Radeon graphics to its EliteBook G8 business lineup. With three different sizes, the AMD-powered EliteBook G8 series is seeking to provide a balance between processing power, lightweight design and security features.
HP’s EliteBook 835 G8 is the smallest model of this lineup, with a 0.7-inch profile and 2.8 lbs total weight. This 13-inch laptop comes with three FHD screen options: a 1000 nits panel with SureView Reflect privacy feature, a 400 nits low-power panel and 250 nits panel. Users can equip the laptop with up to 64 GB of RAM and up to 2 TB of NVMe SSD storage. Port selection includes 2x USB-C + 2x USB-A connectors, an HDMI 2.0b video output and combo audio jack. Other features include a fingerprint sensor, HD IR cam and optional SmartCard reader and SIM slot.
There is also a 14-inch EliteBook 845 G8 model with 0.7-inch profile and 3.1 lbs weight. The specs are largely the same from the 13-inch model, except for the 250 nits touchscreen option, Bang & Olufsen audio system, three multi array mics, spill resistant premium keyboard, and a DisplayPort video out.
The largest model is represented by the 15.6-inch EliteBook 855 G8 that has a 0.78-inch profile and weighs 3.87 lbs. This one has all the screen options for the other two models plus an additional 4K UHD anti-glare low-power panel with 400 nits peak luminance. All other specs are identical with the ones on the 14-inch model.
Unfortunately, HP does not mention the exact processor specs. Availability and pricing will be disclosed at a later date.
