HP ZBook Studio G7 Aims To Attract Linux Developers, Data Scientists

For the last of today's testing are various power and thermals under a variety of workloads being tested with the HP ZBook Studio G7.

Across a wide variety of workloads, the i9-10885H was hitting the turbo frequency up to 5.2GHz while most often the peak frequency being recorded during testing averaged out to 3.8GHz.

The reported CPU package power consumption generally came in around 35 Watts under load but with spikes much higher.

Similarly, the RTX 5000 GPU managed to idle at under 4 Watts while under load averaged to 35 Watts but with spikes around 80 Watts.

All the thermal and power data recorded and per-test data can be found via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file.

Overall the HP ZBook Studio G7 is a very capable mobile workstation for those looking for a high-end, high-performance laptop with Intel CPU and NVIDIA graphics. The Ubuntu 20.04 pre-load is a very interesting step for HP with its data science stack pre-installed. Moving forward hopefully we find them allowing more initial customizations to the software stack depending upon the given user's workflow and preferences. It would also be good to see HP offering firmware updates via LVFS/FWUPD and making more Linux engagement moving forward. Given where they are at right now, it will be interesting to see how the HP Linux pre-load story plays out over the course of 2021.

Pricing on the HP ZBook Studio G7 mobile workstation starts out at $1636 USD when pre-loaded with Ubuntu Linux (a savings of $234 USD compared to Windows 10 Pro). FreeDOS is also available for this mobile workstation if wanting to install your own alternative Linux distribution. More details on the HP ZBook Studio G7 is available from HP.com.
