Dell Latitude 14 7414 Rugged Extreme (6200U, HD) Laptop Review

Sascha Mölck (translated by Pascal Kilian), 04/25/2017

Solid as a rock. Dell´s robust 14-inch withstands dust, liquids, drops and heat. Not only does this laptop offer tough looks, but also potent hardware, lots of ports and a laudable stamina.

The Dell Latitude 14 7414 Rugged Extreme is a robust laptop made for harsh, technologically hostile environments. This device is not a newcomer as we have already tested an identically constructed Haswell iteration of this computer three years ago. For the new model, Dell relies on Skylake processors. There are no competitors to be found in our database.

Since both tested models are constructed identically we will not make further statements about the case, equipment, input devices or the speakers. Those details can be found in our review of the Latitude 14 7404.

A model similar to our test device, but with a 256 SSD is available online for around $4250 (incl. VAT). At the time this review, a refurbished model equipped with a 512 GB SSD and 16 GB of RAM is available heavily discounted for a price of $1350 (incl. VAT).

Display

Pixel grid
Pixel grid

The Latitude is equipped with the same 14-inch touchscreen display as its Haswell predecessor. The high-contrast screen is bright, viewing angle-stable and comes with a native resolution of 1366x768 pixels. Nonetheless, our measurements show slight differences, which is to be expected as two identical panels never actually match one hundred percent.

Unfortunately, the display shows PWM flicker with a frequency of 200 Hz below 20% display brightness. For susceptible users, this might lead to headaches or problems with the eyes.

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 detected 200 Hz20 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 200 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 20 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 200 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 57 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 6262 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
27 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise

The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 52 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (26.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (42.8 ms).

Performance

With the Latitude 14 7414 Rugged Extreme, Dell offers a resilient 14-inch laptop made for use in adverse environments.

Processor

Dell has equipped its Latitude with a Core i5-6300U (Skylake) Intel dual core processor. The CPU is one of the f ULV all-rounders (TDP: 15 watts) and performs decently in all application areas. The processor clocks at a base speed of 2.4 GHz. In turbo mode, it achieves frequencies of up to 2.9 GHz (both cores) or 3 GHz (one core), respectively. Turbo mode is available in both power supply mode and battery mode.

Whether the turbo keeps this level can be observed during a 30-minute run of the Cinebench R15 Multithread benchmark test. From the first to the second run the performances drops a little. During the third run it normalizes again and remains at this level during successive runs. An actual performance slump cannot be observed.

According to our CPU tests the Latitude clearly outpaces its predecessor. The latter is equipped with a weaker Haswell processor.

System Performance

A solid processor and a zippy solid state disk allow for a well working system. The PC Mark Benchmark results testify that the laptop has more than enough resources to handle office and internet applications. A small performance increase can be achieved by adding a second working memory module (= dual-channel mode activated).

Storage devices

Dell has utilized an SSD by LiteOn, an M.2-2880 model with a capacity of 128 GB. Out of the box, around 80 GB is available for usage while the rest is occupied by the recovery partition and the Windows operating system. The SSD transfer rates are decent, but not top-notch.

Graphics Card

Our test device comes with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 520 GPU. It supports DirectX 12 and reaches clock speeds of up to 950 MHz. The 3D-Mark-11 results show an ordinary performance considering the graphics core. Again, an increase in performance can be achieved by adding another working memory module. This activates the dual-channel mode, which makes better use of the GPU.

Gaming Performance

The hardware of the Latitude is able to accommodate smooth gaming experience on the screen, as long as system requirements are low. Most games can only be displayed on low resolutions and low quality settings. By activating the dual-channel mode (filling the second RAM slot), an increase in gaming performance can be achieved, but even then, performance hungry games such as “Mass Effect Andromeda” remain unplayable. 

Customers who require more graphic performance can choose to add a dedicated Radeon R7 M360 graphics core (+ $220) in the Dell shop.

Emissions & Energy management

System Noise

The fan of the Latitude remains still when the system is idle. Even under load the fan does not start up immediately. It takes up its work only after around 8 minutes when the system gets exhausted with our stress test. During the test, it does not produce much noise.

The laptop, however, emits other noises. From time to time an electronic splutter can be heard, for example, during performing SSD tests (CrystalDiskMark, AS SSD).

The Latitude during the stress test
The Latitude during the stress test

Our stress tests (Prime95 and FurMark run for at least one hour) are handled in a similar manner when in power supply mode or in battery mode. The processor clocks to 2.9 GHz for several seconds and throttles at a constant 1.5 GHz. After a few minutes the fan takes up its work leading to an increase in clock speed to about 2 GHz. The graphics processing unit mostly runs with full force (950 MHz). Later in the test process, it occasionally drops down to 200 MHz.

On the outside, the laptop does not really heat up. The 30-degree Celsius (~86 degree Fahrenheit) line is only reached in two places during the stress test.

Verdict

The Dell Latitude 14 7414 Rugged Extreme, supplied by Dell Germany.
The Dell Latitude 14 7414 Rugged Extreme, supplied by Dell Germany.

The Dell Latitude 14 7414 Rugged Extreme is a 14-inch laptop built for extraordinary situations. Its interior is protected from dust, liquids, drops and heat. Compared to the predecessor nothing has changed on the outside. Improvements can only be seen inside. Haswell makes way for Skylake, which improves processing power in the new models. Despite this performance increase, elevated noise levels and heat emissions are nowhere to be found. The Latitude remains silent and rather cool at all times. What is more, battery life is very good.

The Latitude 14 7414 is equipped for use in adverse environments.

A solid-state drive enables a snazzy running system. Exchanging the SSD would be possible without much effort. We are already acquainted with the backlit keyboard from the laptop´s predecessor. It exhibits a comfortable typing experience. The display remains the same bright, high-contrast, viewing angle-stable model as we have seen in the Haswell predecessor. Dell refrains from an upgrade in terms of the port selection. Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort or Type-C USB are not even offered as options.
