- HP just announced its ZBook Studio G9 mobile workstation.

- The ZBook Studio G9 is expected to ship in June, though pricing details have not been shared at this time.
HP has a new mobile workstation on the way, the ZBook Studio G9. Powered by up to an Intel Core i9 vPro CPU and either NVIDIA RTX A5500 or GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics, the laptop should be able to handle demanding workloads from creators and professionals.
The ZBook Studio G9 has a taller 16:10 DreamColor display with a 120Hz refresh rate. That aspect ratio is a bit of a trend with HP and other laptop makers since it provides more screen real estate without adding much size to a device.
Versions of the ZBook Studio G9 with RTX graphics are validated by the NVIDIA Studio program, which means they've been optimized for digital creators. The laptops also support NVIDIA Studio software, including Omniverse, Broadcast, and Canvas.
