Z by HP Powers Creative Collaboration Everywhere for Today's Creators

Today HP Inc. introduced the latest HP ZBook Studio G8, ZBook Fury G8, and ZBook Power G8 built for professional creators and power users who need performance, reliability, expandability, and versatility to work fluidly and get the job done in any environment.

Today's creators are focused on delivering breakthrough experiences and require powerful and flexible technology that enables them to stay productive and collaborative. As businesses have shifted from traditional offices by default to hybrid environments by design, technical and creative professionals need pro-grade performance on the go. With 32% of office employees expected to work from home for the foreseeable future, and 33% of IT decision makers reporting that support for remote work is their #1 challenge, businesses must be prepared to support the future of work.
Remote collaboration is even more important in hybrid work environments and delivering personalized computing experiences and the right IT solutions is essential. HP ZCentral has been an integral part of keeping businesses up and running and keeping people productive during the pandemic. HP ZCentral makes it easy for creators to take advantage of remote access to workstation power with Emmy -award winning ZCentral Remote Boost software. The real-time collaboration capability of this solution is a powerful tool that brings fast, responsive performance on demanding projects to artists, designers, and engineers - access the full resources, compute power, and infrastructure of the office or production studio while working from anywhere. ZCentral keeps data locked up and secure while still enabling a real-time local remote work experience. Users can now access the best-in-class performance of the new ZBook G8 lineup from anywhere while also having the ability to access workstations and workflows remotely. At the same time, the HP Security Suite keeps user data safe and secure, including the new HP Tamper Lock intrusion system that will let IT departments know if someone tries remove the cover of the PC.

"Professional creators and power users need a curated, personalized software and hardware experience that aligns to the different ways they work and collaborate," said Jim Nottingham, general manager and global head, Advanced Compute and Solutions, HP Inc. "With the ZBook Studio being the most powerful workstation of its size, and the ZBook Fury offering full expandability in a portable design, HP is giving the professional community access to cutting-edge technology, unthrottled performance, and the versatility to make the next creative breakthrough a reality."

"Intel heard and we listened, power users need desktop-class performance in mobile systems so they're just as productive while working from home. With the new HP Zbook G8 lineup - HP is making that happen," said Joakim Algstam, General Manager of premium and enthusiast notebook platforms, Client Computing Group at Intel. "We designed the 11th Gen Intel Core H-series and Intel Xeon W-11000 mobile processors to deliver industry-leading, desktop-class performance in laptop form factors. It is exciting to collaborate with HP on the innovation in the ZBook G8 mobile workstations."

"For power-users, meeting modern demands for performance, mobility, and the option to scale are non-negotiable requirements," said Sandeep Gupte, senior director of Professional Visualization at NVIDIA. "The latest ZBook offerings powered by NVIDIA RTX laptop GPUs are perfectly designed to stay in lock-step with customers' evolving needs."

Intel is the only one offering PCIe 4.0 and thunderbolt 4 on laptops, for professional creators those are nice features to have. AMD need to be more aggressive when it comes to features, CPU performance isn't everything
