Multi-Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. 64-bit computing on Intel® architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel® 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. Intel's numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
Not available with Intel iAMT (*Not available with vPro)
Processor speed denotes maximum performance mode; processors will run at lower speeds in battery optimization mode.
Chipset integrated with processor
Integrated: Intel HD* Graphics 5500
Discrete: AMD Radeon R7 M260X, with 1 GB dedicated DDR5 video memory**
*HD content required to view HD images.
**AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics technology requires an Intel processor, plus an AMD Radeon discrete graphics configuration and is not available on FreeDOS and Linux OS. With AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics technology, full enablement of all discrete graphics video and display features may not be supported on all systems (e.g. OpenGL applications will run on the integrated GPU or the APU as the case may be).
Up to 32-bit per pixel color depth
Port supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 external resolution at 75 Hz
Supports resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz. Supports Multi-Stream Transport (MST) where three displays can be daisy chained with digital displays through DisplayPort Only. The full resolution of each display will be limited as you reach 3 displays due to the bandwidth limitations with a maximum resolution of:

Storage and drives
Solid State Drive*
HP 3D DriveGuard (Windows only)
HP 3D DriveGuard mitigates the risk of hard drive failures, safeguarding your data when you are on the go by sensing sudden movement and protecting the hard drive. The hard drive is mounted directly to the notebook frame, reducing the transmission of shock to the hard drive.
*For hard drives and solid state drives, GB = 1 billion bytes. TB = 1 trillion bytes. Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 16 GB (for Windows 7) and 30 GB (for Windows 8) of system disk is reserved for the system recovery software.
Available only with standard non-SED hard drive and non-solid state drives.
Upgradeable to 16 GB with optional 8 GB SODIMMs in slots 1 and 2*
Maximized dual-channel performance requires SODIMMs of the same size and speed in both memory slots.
* Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB may not all be available due to system resource requirements.
Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, we recommend HP branded memory to ensure compatibility. If you mix memory speeds, the system will perform at the lower memory speed.
Networking and Communications
Support for a broad range of secure, integrated wireless LAN and wireless WAN options featuring support for the latest industry standards. Broadband Wireless (WWAN) requires a Windows operating system and is available in select countries as a standard, factory configurable feature only. Integrated Bluetooth is also available (factory configurable only) and can be combined with any of the supported wireless LAN and wireless WAN options.

*WWAN is an optional feature sold separately or as an add on feature. WWAN connection requires wireless data service contract, network support, and is not available in all areas. Contact service provider to determine the coverage area and availability. Connection speeds will vary due to location, environment, network conditions, and other factors.
**4G LTE WWAN is an optional feature, not available on all products, in all regions and requires separately purchased service contract. Check with service provider for coverage and availability. Connection speeds will vary due to location, environment, network conditions, and other factors.
