Product Overview

HP ZBook Firefly 14 G8 is an ultra-portable mobile workstation powered by Intel's 11th-gen Core, Tiger Lake processors. It adds 5G mobile broadband support via the optional Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 LTE/5G modem compared to its predecessor.
Other advanced features include dual Thunderbolt 4 ports, up to 64GB of DDR4 3200MHz memory, and optional T500 graphics.
All this is packed in a chassis just over half an inch thin.
Still, due to the minimum increment in performance in Intel's new chip, we can expect the overall performance of the G8 to be close to that of the ZBook Firefly 14 G7, which is on sale at the launch of the G8.

The HP ZBook Firefly 14 G8 shows increased interruption times in our test with LatencyMon. Nvidia's Quadro T500 Mobile is a graphics card for entry-level workstations. It's based on the same architecture as the Nvidia GeForce MX450, but it offers a higher clock rate and a driver that is optimized for professional applications.
