Dell XPS 14 2024 review - The multimedia laptop with the slowest RTX 4050 Laptop in the world

OLED touchscreen and a hefty price tag. Dell has presented the XPS 14, a new multimedia laptop of which we have tested the high-end variant with an OLED panel and the GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop. At almost US$3,000, the device costs an arm and a leg and especially when it comes to performance, you shouldn't set your expectations too high.

For many years, the Dell XPS 15 was a well-known size within the multimedia segment. In 2024, the manufacturer has replaced the 15-inch model with two new versions featuring 14-inch and 16-inch screens. Today, we will be taking a look at the new XPS 14 9440, whose introductory price of US$1,499 cements it securely within the premium segment. In turn, you get the new Meteor-Lake Core Ultra 7 155H processor, 16 GB RAM, a 512-GB SSD and a Full-HD panel.

Our test device with the Core Ultra 7, 32 GB RAM, a 1-TB SSD, the GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop as well as a high-res 120-Hz OLED panel costs a whopping US$2,399 and as a result, has to compete with other high-end multimedia laptops and gaming models such as the Razer Blade 14 or the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14, both of which are even cheaper but offer more powerful components.

Case - The XPS 14 with a stable but bulky aluminum case

The new XPS' design is strongly inspired by last year's XPS 13 Plus. The old models' wedge-shaped design has been kept and Dell offers the device in Platinum or Graphite (dark gray). The base unit is tapered at the front, giving it the impression of being a slimmer device but when you pick it up, it becomes obvious how heavy it is and in general, how bulky the case actually is. Visually, the new XPS 14 makes a good impression and as soon as you open the lid, the continuous glass palm rest without a visible touchpad and the white keyboard without any spaces between the keys dominate. Fingerprints are not a problem on the palm rest, but you can see some slight marks on the lid.

The aluminium case's quality is outstanding, as the base unit cannot be dented or warped and we noted no creaking noises. The display is just as stable and the hinges have been set well, meaning it only wobbles a tiny bit when you adjust the lid's angle (max. 135 degrees). However, the shape of the front edge makes it difficult to open the lid with one hand.

The XPS 14 weighs almost 1.8 kg and it's also comparatively thick, measuring 19 mm. This makes it one of the heftiest devices within our comparison group—only the Surface Laptop Studio with its foldable screen is slightly thicker and heavier. Plus, the Blade 14 is slightly heavier but not quite as thick. Even the MacBook Pro, which appears quite hefty due to its design, is around 3.5 mm thinner. The 100-watt power supply adds another 352 grams to the scales.

Connectivity - 3x Thunderbolt 4 on the XPS

Despite its relatively thick base unit, Dell relies solely on USB-C connections, all of which support Thunderbolt 4. The scope of delivery includes a small docking station with a USB-A connection as well as an HDMI output. In total, the new XPS 14 9440 trails behind the comparison devices and even the MacBook features an HDMI output directly attached to the device.

SD card reader

The right side of the device features a microSD card reader (feather mechanism) which takes in the compact memory cards almost completely. In combination with our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60), its transfer rates reached a maximum of around 200 MB/s and when copying image files, we measured a good 144 MB/s.

Communication

The WLAN module from Intel (AX211) supports the Wi-Fi 6E standard in 6-GHz frequencies and during our WLAN test using our reference router from Asus, its transfer rates were very high and stable. We also noted no problems when using other routers during this test. On the other hand, the XPS 14 9440 doesn't support Wi-Fi 7.

Webcam

Dell has installed a 1080p webcam into the top of the display frame, as well as an IR camera for facial recognition via Windows Hello. The webcam's quality is fine in good lighting conditions. Furthermore, the camera supports studio effects (background soft focus, eye tracking, auto framing) as part of its operating system, meaning it works irrespective of which application is being used.

Maintenance

The bottom cover is secured via eight Torx screws (T5) and can be removed easily. However, most of the components, including the RAM and WLAN modules, are soldered on. Even so, the fans can be cleaned and the M.2-2280 SSD can be swapped out. The battery is screwed in and if needed, it can also be replaced.

Input devices - Keyboard takes some getting used to and annoying function keys

Dell has decided to use the XPS 13 Plus' keyboard design by also installing a keyboard where the keys don't have any gaps in between into the new XPS 14. The keys themselves are slightly concave and it feels comfortable to type on them, as the keystrokes are precise. However, there are several other problems, as we often hit the wrong key and the keyboard definitely takes some getting used to. The tiny vertical arrow keys, which are hard to hit if you have slightly larger fingers, were also annoying and the noise that larger keys (space bar, Enter) make is significantly louder. The power button (which includes a fingerprint scanner) is located at the top right, where you would expect to find the Delete key, which brings us to the next problem.  

The function keys are installed as a touch bar and are always illuminated, which can be annoying when playing videos, for example. The normal F keys can be displayed via the FN key, which, to be fair, also works well overall and we had no problems with unrecognized inputs during the test. However, you can't even use the Esc key blindly and always have to look at the keys.

We had an issue with the keyboard backlighting, as the touch bar lighting switches off when inactive, but not when playing videos for hours without any input. The bright keyboard lighting is also constantly adjusted by a sensor and you can't influence the intensity—at least we didn't find an option. The sensor is also not interested in whether the lighting was deactivated manually shortly beforehand; as soon as the lighting conditions change slightly, the lighting is reactivated.

You can see the size of the touchpad on the infrared image.

The touchpad is fully integrated into the palm rest and you can't tell where it starts and where it ends. The touchpad uses the full height of the palm rest and its width extends from the middle of the left Alt key to just above the new Co-Pilot key. In total, it worked well and proved to be nice and smooth with even haptic feedback, but we occasionally encountered problems if you left the area or started the movements slightly off the actual touchpad area. In contrast to the touch bar, however, this is only a minor point of criticism. The optional OLED panel is also equipped with a capacitive touchscreen and this works perfectly.

Display - 3.2K touch-sensitive OLED

Sub-pixel array
Sub-pixel array

The new XPS 14 9440 is fitted with a 14.5-inch Full HD panel (no touchscreen) by standard; for a surcharge of US$300, you can choose a high-resolution OLED touchscreen instead, which features a resolution of 3,200 x 2,000 pixels. Subjectively, the reflective panel's picture quality is very good overall, as content is depicted extremely sharply and colors appear vivid—but you notice a slight raster effect when displaying light content in particular. We didn't note the same problem on the current OLED generation from Samsung (e.g. Galaxy Book4 Pro 14, review coming soon) and Dell's OLED trails a little behind in terms of brightness, too.

In SDR mode, we measured an average of just over 350 cd/m², making it similar to the old Zenbook Pro—the current Samsung OLEDs with a slightly lower 2.8K resolution and a 120-Hz refresh rate (e.g. ROG Zephyrus G14 or IdeaPad Pro 5), on the other hand, manage more than 400 cd/m². Its black value is 0, leading to an extremely high contrast ratio and, in contrast to IPS panels, truly dark blacks. Furthermore, the OLED screen boasts some clear advantages in terms of response times but in turn, it makes use of PWM at a frequency of 480 Hz across all brightness levels.

In HDR mode, its maximum brightness when depicting a small image excerpt was 625 cd/m² and when displaying an almost completely white screen, it reached ~580 cd/m². For an OLED screen, these are good values, however, its Mini-LED competitors can offer even more in this aspect, especially the MacBook Pro 14 with its brightness of over 1,500 cd/m². Moreover, macOS continues to have a massive advantage when it comes to handling HDR content.

* ... smaller is better

We analyzed the screen using the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2) and used the preset "Vivid", which delivered the best measured values. In general, this profile is already satisfactory, as all colors remained below the important DelteE-2000 deviation of 3 compared to the P3 reference color space—only its grayscale depiction wasn't the best. We also noted a minimal color tint, but this is only noticeable in direct comparison with a calibrated screen. With the "Internet" profile, Dell provides users with an sRGB profile and the colors are also very accurate using this setting.

Our own calibration, on the other hand, showed that the panel is capable of even more and aside from improved grayscale depiction, we also further improved its color accuracy. It is able to cover the P3 and sRGB color spaces in their entirety, meaning the XPS 14 is perfectly suited for editing photos/videos—although the same can be said for the competitor devices.

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
0.77 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.42 ms rise
↘ 0.35 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.39 ms rise
↘ 0.31 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.6 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 detected 480 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 480 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 480 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17788 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The touchscreen is very reflective and this could lead to some issues indoors as well. Outside, you have to try to avoid reflections from light sources or bright surfaces. On cloudy days, you can use the device quite well outside, whereas sunny days could easily cause some problems. Its viewing-angle stability is good in general, but when deviating far from the centre of the picture, you start to notice the blue shimmer that is typical of OLED displays.

Performance - Fast RAM only with Nvidia GPU

The new XPS 14 9440 is exclusively available with the new Core-Ultra-7 mobile processors (155H & 165H) from Intel and at most, the XPS can be equipped with 64 GB RAM—this is oftentimes not the case with its competitors. When it comes to RAM, you are faced with some limitations if you decide to go for a model without a GeForce GPU, as then you'll have to make do with slower LDPPR5-6400 RAM and a maximum of 32 GB. The faster LPDDR5x-7467 RAM is reserved for the dGPU models, although the integrated Arc iGPU would benefit from this in particular. 

 
 
 

Testing conditions

Dell offers various energy profiles that can also be combined with the Windows performance settings. The default profile is Optimized, which we also used for the following benchmarks and measurements. The CPU's performance can be increased slightly with the Ultra Performance profile, but there are no differences in GPU performance and the RTX 4050 Laptop's maximum TGP is just 30 watts (although it is 40 watts according to the driver).

Processor - Core Ultra 7 155H

The Core Ultra 7 155H belongs to Intel's current Meteor Lake generation, offering a total of 16 cores (22 threads) with six fast performance cores that can clock at up to 4.8 GHz. This is the successor model to the Core i7-13700H and as there are no longer any P-series chips, the new Core Ultra 7 155H covers a further TDP area of 28-115 watts. In the case of the XPS 14 9440, the processor is able to consume up to 64 watts for a short time, after which its consumption quite quickly sinks to 30 watts. This means our test device was only able to succeed over the competitor devices during short tests, while under longer periods of load, its multi-core performance sank noticeably (approx. 30 %). Only the Acer Swift X was even slower in this case.

The new XPS often had to admit defeat to its competitors when it came to single-core performance, too—but this is a general problem the new Meteor Lake processors have to deal with. Of course, its performance is good enough for everyday use but as a customer, you can't help but ask why you don't get any better performance despite its thicker case and expensive price tag. 

In battery use, the processor quickly sinks from 64 to 28 watts and its multi-core performance is around 12 % worse. Further CPU benchmarks can be found in our tech section.
