Every moment counts when it comes to getting the job done. Upgrading your personal computer from the previous generation to new technology can help you realize performance benefits, unlock more productivity across work tasks, and make a difference in your life. To better understand the benefits of upgrading, we tested two new laptop configurations from HP against two previous-generation configurations.

In one study, we ran a series of benchmarks on the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 featuring a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1265U processor vs. a Dragonfly G2 featuring an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor. In another, we compared an HP EliteBook 840 G9 featuring a 12th Gen Intel Core i5-1245U processor vs. an EliteBook 840 G8 featuring an 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1145G7 processor. Both new-generation devices achieved higher scores in all our benchmark tests than their previous-generation competitors.
