The performance on both Windows and Linux is very competitive for this eight core / sixteen thread mobile workstation.

The HP ZBook 17 G6 is also quite capable for 3D modeling with Blender and related applications.

The Blender performance on the ZBook is particularly compelling with the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics when making use of the OptiX support.

Across dozens of workloads tested, the HP ZBook 17 G6 performed extremely well and the numbers in relation to the Kubuntu Focus with Core i7 9750H and the Dell XPS 7390 Ice Lake put the performance capabilities of this mobile workstation into perspective.

Those wishing to see how their own Linux laptop performance compares to these results, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 2003195-PTS-2003024V43 for your own side-by-side automated benchmarks against the tests carried out in this article plus more.

Coming up in the days ahead will be more benchmarks from the HP ZBook 17 G6 including the Windows 10 vs. Linux benchmarks and other interesting metrics for this high-end Linux laptop.
