Change the way the world creates
Creative and technical professionals depend on powerful and flexible technology to push the boundaries of their creativity. With 43% of architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) professionals wanting a faster CPU and 30% a faster GPU, 5 today’s creatives want a device that doesn’t interrupt nor impede their workflows. Creatives’ devices need to become a transparent window into their imagination. The new ZBook Fury G9 and ZBook Studio G9 help media and entertainment artists, AECO and product development professionals, and data scientists tackle multiple heavy workflows. Powered by a desktop-class Intel® 55-watt CPU and up to a professional-grade NVIDIA RTX™ A5500 Laptop GPU or AMD Radeon™ Pro GPUs, the ZBook Fury is so powerful it’ll make creators and technical professionals forget it’s a laptop. From 8K video editing to 3D visualization to machine learning, the new ZBook Fury provides the performance required in today’s most demanding workloads. The ZBook Studio G9 is engineered to deliver fast, frictionless pro-level performance with up to an Intel Core i9 vPro CPU,6 NVIDIA RTX A5500 or GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti. Models equipped with NVIDIA RTX and GeForce RTX GPUs are validated by the NVIDIA Studio program. They deliver performance and stabilization optimizations for the most popular creative applications, plus access to exclusive NVIDIA Studio software: Omniverse, Broadcast, and Canvas. The ZBook Fury G9 and ZBook Studio G9 enable creators to immerse themselves in their work wherever inspiration strikes.
When working through complex workflows like video editing, CAD designs, or analyzing large datasets, a dual screen setup can increase productivity by up to 31%.7 Elevate creative collaboration, share every innovative idea, and amplify the creative canvas across two monitors. The new HP Z24m, now with a conferencing experience, and HP Z24q 23.8“ quad HD displays offer a 90Hz refresh rate8 to create with unhindered fluidity, exceptional front-of-screen color with factory color calibrated sRGB and P3 calibrated color spaces, plus VESA DisplayHDR 400 for more dynamic visuals and true-to-life color accuracy across both screens. Share every idea with colleagues and clients on the HP Z24m with its integrated conferencing features that include a tiltable 5MP webcam, dual noise-canceling microphones, as well as dual speakers.

Create faster insights with data
The definition of a professional creator has extended beyond the traditional artist, architect, photographer, animator, and video editor. Just as traditional creators use computing power to create 3D models, architectural designs, video games, and movies, data scientists similarly use computing power to create business insights from data. Select Z by HP data science workstations eliminate some of the most common challenges data scientists face day-to-day by delivering the right tools to turn complex data sets into actionable insights. 42% of data scientists say that configuring their environment takes too much time.14 Now, with the introduction of the Z by HP Data Science Stack Manager, 15 the world’s first workstation OEM developed graphical user interface for customizing data science software available on both Ubuntu and Microsoft WSL2,1617 it becomes even easier for data creators to customize and manage their data science environments specific to each project – further accelerating workflows. This curated and managed software stack takes the guesswork out of creating the optimal data science environment by testing and preloading popular data science tools including select packages from Intel’s oneAPI AI Analytics Toolkit, as well as Pytorch, Python, NVIDIA RAPIDS, and more.
Access the power to create from anywhere
The first step toward combining the best of both Emmy® award-winning remoting software solutions came in December 2021 with the HP Teradici single subscription.18 Now, Teradici and HP have launched the first beta release of HP Anyware, the enterprise IT software that keeps people and teams productive by providing secure access to their digital workspaces. HP Anyware integrates Teradici CAS and ZCentral Remote Boost features into a single solution that gives companies the flexibility to harness the power of their cloud, data center, edge, OS, or workstation infrastructure to deliver the ultimate user experience to end-user devices (PC, Mac, laptop, tablet, thin and zero clients). 19
