Recensione breve della Workstation HP ZBook 14u G4 (7500U, FirePro W4190M)

Nino Ricchizzi (traduzione a cura di G. De Luca), 11/13/2017

Una workstation consumer. La nuova ZBook 14u è esattamente da 14" ed è destinato a coloro che cercano un compagno affidabile prima di tutto. Ci piace molto il pacchetto nel suo complesso, ma la scelta hardware lascia a desiderare.

Tempi di risposta del Display

I tempi di risposta del display mostrano quanto sia veloce lo schermo a cambaire da un colore all'altro. Tempi di risposta lenti poccono creare sovrapposizioni negloi oggetti in movimento. Specialmente i giocatori patiti del 3D dovrebbero usare uno schermo con rempi di risposta bassi.
       Tempi di risposta dal Nero al Bianco
24 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19 ms Incremento
↘ 5 ms Calo
Lo schermo mostra buoni tempi di risposta durante i nostri tests, ma potrebbe essere troppo lento per i gamers competitivi.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 28 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (26.6 ms).
       Tempo di risposta dal 50% Grigio all'80% Grigio
47 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 29 ms Incremento
↘ 18 ms Calo
Lo schermo mostra tempi di risposta lenti nei nostri tests e sarà insoddisfacente per i gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 74 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (42.5 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 55 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 8587 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

HP realizza esattamente quello che ci aspettavamo con lo ZBook 14u: tutte le funzioni essenziali e di sicurezza della serie ZBook sono inserite in pacchetto più economico. L'hardware del dispositivo è un mix di prodotti consumer e workstation. Il case è realizzato molto bene e comprende sia elementi in plastica che in metallo. Con un peso di 1,7 kg (3.7 lbs), questa nuova workstation si rivela un piacevole compagno. Anche i dispositivi di input sono molto buoni, e gli utenti che scrivono parecchio saranno soddisfatti. Il pannello TN della nostra configurazione, tuttavia è un po' deludente. Di base, soffre di una evidente tendenza al blu. Tuttavia, si rimedia con la calibrazione. I potenziali clienti, che non lo useranno sempre da postazione fissa, potrebbero considerare un pannello IPS.

Le performance sono il punto dolente. Un processore dual-core è sufficiente per questo dispositivo. Questa CPU è la più comune nei portatili consumer low-TDP. Ha prestazioni particolarmente basse nei benchmarks Multi-Core, rispetto al resto della concorrenza. Un punto positivo: indipendentemente dal carico, non si verifica throttling della CPU. Il secondo componente per importanza è la AMD FirePro W4190M. Sfortunatamente, la GPU è del 2015, il che si nota chiaramente nei risultati dei benchmark. Tuttavia, riesce ad avere risultati superiori rispetto ai portatili convenzionali nei benchmarks workstation-oriented. Ma lo ZBook 14u non regge il confronto con i dispositivi che abbiamo scelto come termine di paragone. 

Infine, abbiamo prestato attenzione all'autonomia della batteria, accertando che lo ZBook riesce a resistere ad una lunga giornata di lavoro in ufficio. In questo caso solo il Lenovo ThinkPad P51s potrebbe avere un risultato migliore.

Lo ZBook 14u è un mix tra una workstation senza compromessi e un dispositivo consumer. L'impressione complessivamente buona è intaccata da una scheda grafica obsoleta.

Coloro che vogliono maggiori prestazioni CPU ed un vero processore quad-core dovrebbero dare uno sguardo ai dispositivi che abbiamo scelto come paragone. Il Lenovo ThinkPad P51s vince in termini di durata. Il Dell Precision 3520 si comporta meglio come performance, mentre l'Apple MacBook Pro ha un superbo display ed ottimi materiali di costruzione.

Nota: si tratta di una recensione breve, con alcune sezioni non tradotte, per la versione integrale in inglese guardate qui.
