HP ZBook Firefly 14 G9 laptop in review: Intel Alder Lake-U slows down this mobile workstation

Nvidia T550 in 14 inches. HP's ZBook Firefly 14 G9 mobile workstation wants to offer a lot of performance in a compact package. However, the result is quite disappointing especially in terms of CPU performance since Intel's Alder Lake chip is throttled heavily. Update: Massive performance improvements after system updates

We recently reviewed the larger ZBook Firefly 16 G9 and now we take a look at HP's mobile workstation with a 14-inch display. Similar to its bigger cousin, the ZBook Firefly 14 G9 is also equipped with a current Intel Alder Lake processor along with a dedicated Nvidia T550 professional GPU and is thus aimed at the entry-level professional sector.

Our configuration with the designation 6B8A2EA uses the Core i7-1265U, the Nvidia T550, 32 GB of RAM, a 1 TB SSD, and a matte Full HD panel in the 16:10 format. This configuration currently retails for around €2,100 (~US$2,075).

Update 10/25/2022: We are in contact with HP since we reviewed the ZBook Firefly 16 G9 and noticed the bad performance figures. Shortly after we published the review of the smaller ZBook Firefly 14 G9, there were multiple system updates from HP via Windows update. They have a positive effect on the performance: The TDP limits for the processor are higher and the CPU now consumes 51/33 Watts instead of 51/12 Watts and the Nvidia T550 GPU now consumes 30 instead of 20 Watts. We have included some initial benchmark scores with the new updates in the table below and the other tests (especially fan noise, surface temperatures as well as performance in combined load scenarios) will follow in the next couple of days.

Case and equipment

The HP ZBook Firefly G9 uses the same chassis as seen in the company's regular business models such as the EliteBook 840 G9 or 845 G9, but the silver color seems slightly darker in this mobile workstation. The aluminum case leaves a high-quality impression and is also very stable. We did not face any problems like the screen bezel coming loose (see the review of the EliteBook 845 G9). Thanks to the 16:10 display and the narrow screen edges, this compact 14-incher looks quite modern but does not stand out particularly in a professional environment with its rather restrained design. The maximum opening angle is around 170 degrees and the hinges are well adjusted. It is possible to open the lid with one hand without any problems while almost completely preventing teetering at the same time.

The ZBook offers all important ports including two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support, which also enable power supply or connection to a docking station. Besides a full-fledged HDMI output, there is also a SmartCard reader and a slot for a nano-SIM card in WWAN models (optionally with 5G). The WWAN module cannot be upgraded, however. HP uses the modern AX211 WLAN module from Intel, which supports the Wi-Fi 6E standard. We were able to connect to the 6 GHz network of our reference router from Asus without any problems in the test and the transfer rates are very good. An Ethernet port and a card reader are not included.

In addition to an IR camera, HP has installed a 5 MP webcam with a mechanical aperture, which only records pictures with a maximum of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels (3.7 MP). Videos can be recorded in a maximum of 1440p at 30 frames per second. The camera leaves a good impression and can stand out from the usual 720p or 1080p modules in terms of image sharpness as well as color fidelity.

Maintenance

The bottom case cover is secured with conventional Philips screws (they only loosen and do not unscrew completely) and can be easily removed. Inside, you get access to the fan, the screwed battery, the M.2-2280 slot as well as the two SO-DIMM slots, which are located under an additional cover. However, the WLAN module is soldered onto the motherboard.

Input devices: Zbook with a very good keyboard

The backlit keyboard offers a firm pressure point and a very comfortable typing experience overall, making the ZBook suitable for writing very long texts. The power button is integrated into the keyboard's upper right and there is a risk of accidentally hitting the key. Furthermore, the arrow keys are very small. The fingerprint scanner is located below the keyboard on the right side.

The large clickpad (12 x 8 cm) offers good gliding properties and works very well in everyday use. The lower part of the pad can be pressed down, which is acknowledged with a pleasantly rich and quiet click noise — like how it should be.

Display: ZBook with matte IPS panel

HP offers a total of four different 16:10 panel choices for the ZBook Firefly 14 G9, all of which are based on IPS technology and have a matte surface. However, the standard model with a brightness of 250 cd/m² and touchscreen should be avoided if possible. The SureView panel with a built-in privacy filter also has some drawbacks, as we had found in our review of the EliteBook 845 G9. The 400 nits panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (100% sRGB) is installed in our test device, but a DreamColor panel with P3 color space coverage and a resolution of 2660 x 1600 pixels as well as 120 Hz is optionally available.

Subjectively, the panel offers excellent picture quality because even bright surfaces do not look grainy despite the matte coating. The average brightness is more than 400 cd/m² and the contrast ratio is high. We did not notice any PWM flickering and the viewing angle stability is very good. Only at maximum brightness do we notice slight halos at the lower edges on dark backgrounds.

* ... smaller is better

Our analysis with the professional CalMAN software shows a slight color cast towards blue/red in the state of delivery, and many colors are also slightly above the DeltaE 2000 deviation of 3 compared to the sRGB reference color space. As long as you do not edit pictures, this is perfectly sufficient for everyday use.

However, our own calibration shows how much potential the panel has. We were able to completely eliminate the color cast and the average deviation of the colors falls to just 0.8 (maximum 1.8), which is an excellent performance.

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
26.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9.7 ms rise
↘ 16.5 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 57 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
56.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 25 ms rise
↘ 31.3 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 92 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The matte display performs very well outdoors. The panel could only be a bit brighter in direct sunlight.

Performance: 12 W Alder Lake-U

 
 
 

Processor: Intel Core i7-1265U

The Core i7-1265U is a current Alder Lake chip (12th generation) with two fast performance and eight efficiency cores. The performance potential is theoretically also very high, but the chip in the ZBook Firefly 14 G9 is slowed down by the very low 12 W power limit, which kicks in after a few seconds. This is sufficient for simple tasks, but the overall performance is a bit lower than even a Tiger Lake Core i7-1165G7 in the predecessor model if all CPU benchmarks are taken together.

We also experienced a similar problem in the larger Firefly 16 G9 and are therefore in contact with the manufacturer. The performance is definitely disappointing for a mobile workstation. For comparison, the normal business variant EliteBook 845 G9 with the AMD Ryzen 9 Pro 6950HS offers around three times the multi-core performance.

Mass storage

The M.2-2280 SSD can be swapped.
The M.2-2280 SSD can be swapped.

HP installs a fast PCIe 4.0 Micron 3400 SSD with a storage capacity of 1 TB, of which 885 GB is still available after the first start-up. The transfer rates of more than 6 GB/s are good to have, but performance fluctuations occur after a few minutes during permanent load due to high temperatures.

Further SSD benchmarks are available here.
