Not to be left out of the party for new laptops, HP has unveiled its latest series of AMD Ryzen 5000 powered notebooks. The HP EliteBook 805 G8 features AMD's Ryzen Pro 5000 mobile processors, with multiple screen size options available.

The HP EliteBook 805 G8 will be available in three different screen sizes, with 15.6, 14, and 13.3-inch variants. Designed for productivity on the go, HP includes Wi-Fi 6, with a model that includes an optional 4G LTE modem and SIM card slot. According to HP, the EliteBook 805 G8 also includes HP Sure View Reflect, which lets users work discreetly, with a copper sheen viewable when looking at the laptop from a side angle.

HP informs us that the outer box packaging is 100% sustainably sourced, for those that care about recyclable packaging. There's a clear focus on SME's, with access to HP QuickDrop for quick and easy file sharing, as well as HP's Tamper Lock system, which locks the system down if it has been physically opened or compromised.

HP hasn't provided any more on the technical specifications to us at this moment, nor has it said when the EliteBook 805 G8 with Ryzen Pro 5000 will be available.

    i want one of these to replace my 840 G5 with i5 8350u.

    Hopefully it has Thunderbolt 4! Thunderbolt 4 is platform agnostic, correct?

    I don't know if AMD has met the requirements to use TB4 yet.
  • Xajel - Monday, January 18, 2021 - link

    They have to work with Intel to enable TB4 to use AMD's own IO Virtualisation tech. instead of intel's.

    But we don't know if AMD is working on this, AMD leans toward open-standard. That's why they're working on USB4 now for late2021 or 2022, hopefully it will have the optional TB3 enabled.

    How is this different from Elitebook 830, 840 and 850?

    Intel Vs AMD

    Ah, I see. Actually I wanted to ask for the difference to 835, 845 and 855 which are using Ryzen 4000 mobile and started in G7.

    It is those ones. The article should have really called it the 805 series.

    Reading laptop reviews over the past couple of years, it's easy to see how much progress has been made not only by high-performance laptops and desktops but also by thin ultrabooks and even unassuming machines for the office and home. In fact, the border between the last two categories is gradually disappearing, because now in both it is customary to use low-watt versions of the CPU, which, on the one hand, have a fairly high performance, and on the other, have not lost their main advantage: moderate power consumption. I am reading all this most likely out of interest since my main job is to help write essays on the site if anyone is interested. Well, for my work, a laptop of the previous generation is enough. I want to buy a new one, but honestly, I don’t know why.
