HP announced the ZBook Studio & ZBook Create today. The ZBook Studio is powered by the latest Intel Xeon processor with Quadro graphics, while the ZBook Create goes up to a 10th Gen Intel Core i9 (H-series) and an NVIDIA RTX 2080S for graphics. The former is more for CAD and engineering uses, while the ZBook Create is ideal for VR, gaming, and prosumer-level creativity.
HP is using a 15.6-inch Pantone validated DreamColor HDR-400 4K (UHD) OLED display with optional HP Sure View Reflect (1,000 nits) for screen privacy with a 87 percent screen-to-body ratio & built-in colorimeter for automatic self-calibration.
“Z Predictive Fan Algorithm intelligently manages fan behavior based on the kind of work and applications used by creatives.”
There are two Type-C (Thunderbolt 3), two Type-A, HDMI, and SD media card reader. HP claims 17.5 hours of battery life. The ZBook is contructed from MIL-STD testing with a CNC aluminum unibody design and ocean-bound recycled plastics.
