    Lisa's review:



    Unfortunately, not the Core i7-8750H / GTX1650 Max-Q level spec we were hoping for back at CES—and color OOB calibration is way off—but the price is decent, and HP is usually good about refreshes / mid-cycle updates.

    So overall, still optimistic. :)

    PS. @MobileTechReview thanks for first video review! (and I think really you are the first! :thumbsup:)

    Ohhh... ditching the AES for N-Trig. That's interesting though really N-Trig is pretty ok.

    That OLED is pretty but I want anti-glare! LoL

    The QLC 1TB SSD could be cheaper, use less power, make less heat and be just as fast if it was SATA based. -_-

    "These days burn-in is pretty well controlled." News to me. How? Somebody tell Asus.

    "Asus showed off a gaming demo on two Zephyrus S GX502 laptops — one of them had a 4K 120Hz IPS display while the other had a 4K OLED panel. The company is looking forward to incorporate OLED displays in its gaming laptop lineup but wants to first address of some of the issues that plague OLED screens including screen burn-in, life-span, and long-term color accuracy."

    Wouldn't those issues have to be addressed by Samsung?

    According to Lisa, it's been N-Trig "forever."
    The only thing new is that OLED is now an option.

    Ehhhh? Maybe I should pay more attention to the consumer stuff. But considering this thing is the platform from the Elitebook/ZBook, and it's all AES or EMR2 on the pro side AFAIK.

    Seconded by many reviews popping up:

    Nothing quite like color-accurate OLED to brighten your day. ;)

    And boy, does this thing get bright!


    WindowsCentral even measured it over 500 nits! At <2dE, that's really in a league of it's own.

    How's the glare?
    How's the PWM?
    How's the burn-in?

    I just noticed you can now get the 2019 chassis with a 9th gen or Comet Lake CPU, but not Ice Lake.

    Comet Lake: the 4 core i7-10510U (1.8 GHz, up to 4.9 GHz, 8 MB cache, 4 cores)+NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 (2 GB)(with OLED)

    When comparing the two 10th Gen architectures, Intel is positioning Comet Lake above Ice Lake when it comes to productivity tasks. They clock much higher and Intel is offering up to six cores with Comet Lake. Likewise, Ice Lake is positioned slightly below Comet Lake in the product stack with only up to four cores and slightly lower frequencies – albeit on improved Sunny Cove cores – but with a new I/O Thunderbolt 3 subsystem and a fairly powerful integrated graphics.

    One very interesting feature with Comet Lake is the addition of LPDDR4X memory support of up to 2933 MT/s in the U series. This is possibly the very first 10-nanometer IP to get back-ported back to 14-nanometer. This means that in terms of memory interfaces, Comet Lake reached parity with Ice Lake. However, it’s worth noting that Ice Lake supports significantly higher data rates – up to 3733 MT/s. This is almost 30% lower bandwidth or roughly 47 GB/s versus the 60 GB/s of Ice Lake. In terms of bandwidth per core for the quad-core parts, you are looking at a peak of roughly 15 GB/s on Ice Lake and 11.75 GB/s on Comet Lake.

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Three...-than-the-average-Core-i7-8550U.450367.0.html

    HP is not offering the 6-core i7-10710U Comet Lake. I wonder why. Maybe because they have some of these they need to get rid of:

    i7 9750H (2.6 GHz, up to 4.5 GHz, 12 MB cache, 6 cores)+NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650

    But you can get it in the 2020 chassis.
