LG Ultra PC 14 review: Stamina meets performance

Portable "heavyweight". Great stamina for on the go – this is something we can attest to for the Ultra PC 16. Its smaller 14-inch brother offers even more of that, lasting five hours longer than the LG gram 14 on a single charge. In this review, we'll discuss how the Ultra PC 14 achieves this it and why its performance comes close to that of a 35-watt Intel 12th gen CPU.

After reviewing the 16-inch Ultra PC, we are now taking a look at its little bother. Is the 14-inch device a gram alternative that has great battery life but isn't trying to be as light as possible? We can already tell you the answer is yes right now. The Ultra PC 14 lasts about 17 hours with Wi-Fi enabled, surpassing the gram 14 by a mile in terms of stamina.

So that's all there is to say about the product, right? Certainly not. We are after all testing out a more expensive model with an AMD Ryzen 7 5825U (25 watts) and 16 GB of RAM. The laptop not only outperforms its Intel counterpart, but also is on the same level as devices with nominally more powerful 45-watt processors of the latest generation under sustained load.

Depending on specs, the Ultra PC costs between €800 and €1,350 (US$870 to US$1,470). At this price range, you'll find a ton of thin portable laptops with either AMD or Intel processors. Featuring a high-res display, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14ITL6 is an upmarket alternative that you should take a look at. With the Acer Swift 3 SF314 and HP Pavilion Plus 14, 45-watt processors offering more performance (single-core) have made their way into 14-inch laptops.

Case & specifications

Are there any differences between the gram and Ultra PC series? Yes. For instance, they are different in terms of weight (980 g versus 1.29 kg, or 2.16 lb versus 2.84 lb) and hinge design (the Ultra PC uses a metal hinge, whilst the one on the gram is hidden). The Ultra PC is made of plastic instead of magnesium and has a stiffer chassis thanks to the strong vertical and horizontal reinforcements inside. Other than material, the Ultra PC has a 72Wh battery that is heavier than the special lightweight batteries used in the LG gram.

The base section and display exhibit some moderate flex. As with the 16-inch Ultra PC, twisting the display lightly will immediately cause distinct discolouration on the TFT panel – this time around not at the lower edge but across the upper half of the screen. This phenomenon also appears to some extent when moving the display. That said, it doesn't negatively affect usage and isn't noticeable when the device is on the lap or shaken.

When it comes to ports, what we said about the Ultra PC 16 applies here as well: you can use a USB-C charger instead of the 65-watt adapter with barrel plug to power the device (we tested 45- and 65-watt chargers).

The Ultra PC 14 is equipped with an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 (with Bluetooth 5.1). The module didn't perform as well as the one in the Ultra PC 16, in both transmit and receive rates. The card readers on the two Ultra PC models delivered identical speeds.

The 14-inch laptop shares the same internal design as its 16-inch big brother. The only difference is that the components are more tightly packed together. It seems the two laptops use the same motherboard; the speakers, battery and I/O board also appear to be identical. There is a second SSD slot available for storage expansion, but the memory is soldered and can't be upgraded. To open up the device, all you need is a small Phillips-head screwdriver. Once the screws are undone, the bottom panel will practically lift up by itself.

In Germany, LG provides a two-year warranty on the LG Ultra PC 14, with an option to extend it to three years for €50 (US$54). Warranty terms and conditions may vary by country. For example, the standard warranty period is only one year in the US.

Input devices

The Ultra PC 14's keyboard is not backlit and lacks a numerical pad. We can't recommend the keyboard wholeheartedly to those who type a lot. Although the keys offer nice, crisp resistance, the keyboard flexes in the middle. This prevents users from typing quickly and diminishes the quality feel of the laptop. The touchpad is of the same size as the one on the 16-inch Ultra PC (13.2 x 8.2 cm, or 5.2 x 3.2"). It has a noticeable travel, a distinct actuation point and a moderately loud click. 

The keyboard deck exhibits significant flex in the middle, diminishing the laptop's quality feel.

Unlike the Ultra PC 16, which features an LG panel, the 14-inch model is equipped with a display made by BOE (NV140WUM-N44). The widescreen panel (1,920 x 1,200, 16:10) similarly suffers from backlight bleed on black screen – this time mostly at the lower edge.

The displays on Ultra PCs are matt and non-reflective, but LG gram laptops have screens with higher resolution (2,560 x 1,600). Our review model supports AMD Vari-Bright, which adjusts screen brightness based on the content being shown. This feature can be disabled as necessary. At 331 cd/m², the Ultra PC 14 has a higher peak brightness than the gram 14 and Ultra PC 16.

We measured response times of 9 and 16 ms, which are good and fairly standard values for IPS panels. Another positive thing is that the display didn't exhibit any PWM flicker.

* ... smaller is better

The Ultra PC 14 has the worst sRGB coverage amongst the devices in our comparison. This could be relevant in applications where colour accuracy is critical. The screen's contrast of 1,600:1 is a touch higher than what the competitors are capable of, even surpassing the gram 14. We managed to improve colour accuracy through calibration, particularly for the greyscale (Delta E reduced from 2.3 to 0.7). You can download the colour profile created by us in the box above.

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
9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 7 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 20 % 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
16 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 25 % 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 not detected

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.

Performance

The Ryzen 7 5825U can keep up with a 35-watt Intel 12500H (sustained load test). This indicates an optimised cooling system.
The Ryzen 7 5825U can keep up with a 35-watt Intel 12500H (sustained load test). This indicates an optimised cooling system.

Our review unit is equipped with an octa-core processor – the AMD Ryzen 7 5825U (2.0 GHz, boost clock up to 4.5 GHz, L3 cache 16 MB). There are also lower-price variants with a hexa-core CPU (Ryzen 5625U). Models with Ryzen 5 or 7 come with 16 GB of RAM (dual channel) as standard.

Test conditions

LG Smart Assistant is now available for power management. In the software, we set the cooling mode to high for the benchmarks and to low for the battery life tests. We left the Radeon Software in its default settings, meaning the power-saving fps limiter was disabled. Likewise, we deactivated AMD Vari-Bright. In Windows, all power-saving modes were disabled and the power plan was set to "Best performance". For the battery life tests, we allowed Windows battery saver to run under balanced mode.

Processor

With its 8 cores and 16 threads, the AMD Ryzen 7 5825U (TDP: 25 watts) turns the laptop into a genuine work machine. The Ryzen CPU delivered excellent performance in our comparison. It is able to keep pace with the Intel Core i7-12500H (45 watts) under sustained load and has slightly higher single-core performance than the Core i5-1135G7 (28 watts). But as expected, the AMD Ryzen 7 5825U performs better in multi-thread tests and is able to make full use of its potential.

When running Cinebench R15 Multi in a loop, the Ryzen initially scored 1,800 before subsequently settling down at an average score of 1,600. The Core i5-1240P in the LG gram 14 trails behind by a considerable margin, with the Ryzen having 80-90% better performance.

Mass storage

Our Ultra PC is ranked last in terms of storage performance. The Samsung PM991a drive is by no means a high-flyer in any of the sub-benchmarks. Considering this, the laptop's sub-scores are astonishingly high in PCMark 10. CrossMark, however, was able to pick up on the slow SSD and mostly put the review unit at the very bottom. As you can see on the DiskSpd chart, the SSD had a moderate drop in performance under load, but this is nothing unusual.
