HP has been upgraded its already existing notebooks to meet Intel’s Evo platform criteria. Recently, the company’s HP EliteBook 830 G8 and EliteBook 840 G8 both received a host of new specs that came with its adoption of intel’s 11th gen processors—expected to start its sale at the end of this month, Intel Tiger Lake CPUs power the products.
Both the 830 G8 and 840 G8 will be powered by Core i5 and Core i7 variants. The highest performance SKU will be the Core i7-1165G7 processor. The devices will be powered using 64 Gb of DDR4 RAM and will run at 3,200MHz of clock speed. For storage, the manufacturer offers 2TB of NVMe SSD storage. On the graphics end, HP relies only on Intel Xe GPU, a standard for Tiger Lake CPUs. It is a bit disappointing that HP is not offering a dedicated graphics card.
In terms of specifications, both the notebooks are equally matched. But the only decidable difference which the notebooks exhibit is the difference in their screen size. The HP EliteBook 830 G8 comes with a 13.1-inch FHD IPS LCD panel, whereas the HP EliteBook 840 G8 sports a larger 14-inch screen size. But that’s where the differences end, as both the models even portray the same refresh rate and resolution.
Ports offered on the HP EliteBook 830 G8, and EliteBook 840 G8 include:
- Two Thunderbolt 4.0 ports
- Two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports HDMI 2.0 port
- one combo audio jack
- nano-SIM card slot
