Product Overview

ZBook Power G8 is a 15.6-inch mobile workstation in HP's 2021 ZBook lineup. It is an incremental improvement over the G7 model while keeping the exact same design.
The ZBook Power G8 is powered by 11th-gen Intel Tiger Lake CPU up to i9-11950H and NVIDIA graphics up to RTX A2000 4GB GDDR6. Unlike its G7 predecessor, the Xeon CPU and Quadro GPU options are missing.
With these changes, the Power G8 now uses DDR4-3200 memory, though ECC is unavailable. Its single Thunderbolt port is upgraded to Thunderbolt 4, but the USB ports are still USB3.1 Gen1 (5Gbps).
On the display front, the ZBook Power G8 sees no notable changes except for a FHD touch screen option. Unlike the case with Fury 15 G8, however, this touch screen does not enjoy Gorilla Glass cover.

The HP ZBook Power G8 ships with Windows 10 Pro and keeps clear of bloatware. It has one large vent across the bottom that runs nearly the full width of the laptop. There is an optional IR camera for Windows Hello support. HP Support Assistant is the most generally useful if you are experiencing any issues.
