Zbook 17 G6 + Nvidia RTX A4000: Perfect Desktop Workstation Replacement with Mobility
Earlier, I posted about my HP Zbook 17 G6, configured with Nvidia RTX A5000 professional desktop GPU and it delivers remarkable computing performance for engineering and multimedia, shortening huge time needed for rendering, data processing, analysis and some other tasks that rely on GPU. It offers huge leap as well with new Nvidia Optix alongside CUDA. And now, I'm gonna give an early impression of the RTX A5000's little brother, the RTX A4000 professional desktop GPU.
The truth is, I still couldn't believe myself that the performance jump of the Zbook 17 G6 I daily use, could leap this high. I mean real high.
Okay, I will simply give a short background about this beast that successfully placed my jaw on the floor. It is, a hefty 17" display HP Zbook 17 G6 mobile workstation that was launch back in end of 2019. So yes, the generation of HP mobile workstation has reached G8, which is the latest. However, this 2 years old mobile workstation hasn't failed me. In fact, it keeps on extending my respect to it. See how this "baby" could crush recent release of some notebooks. Even some desktops.
