The benchmark results of the 'OMEN Transcend 14' Supreme model, which shows crisp performance with the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop, are as follows

I was able to borrow the OMEN Transcend 14 from HP, which is said to be the world's lightest 14-inch gaming PC, so I decided to run various benchmarks.

Please see the following article for details on the device's appearance and weight:

First, we used

CPU-Z to check the CPU. The CPU was an Intel Core Ultra 9 185H with 16 cores and 22 threads. The model used for this review is the Supreme model, out of the three available, while the Performance and Performance Plus models use the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H CPU.

Checking the GPU installed with '

GPU-Z ' revealed that it was an ' NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop ' with 8GB of VRAM. The RTX 40 series has five models in its lineup: 4050, 4060, 4070, 4080, and 4090, with the Supreme model being equipped with the mid-range 4070. The Performance Plus model is equipped with a 4060, and the Performance model is equipped with a 4050, each one step different.

In addition, the CPU is equipped with 'Intel Arc Graphics' as a built-in GPU.

The storage information confirmed using ' CrystalDiskInfo ' is as follows. It is manufactured by Kioxia and has a capacity of 2TB (2048.4GB). The Performance Plus model and Performance model have a capacity of 1TB.

Next, we will perform various benchmark tests. When running the benchmarks, the OMEN Transcend 14 was plugged in, the room temperature was about 22 degrees, and there was no wind.

The transfer speeds of the SSD measured with '

CrystalDiskMark ' were 7105.78MB/s for sequential read, 6005.44MB/s for sequential write, 430.79MB/s for random read, and 370.76MB/s for random write.

When we ran '

CrystalMark Retro ', the overall score was '10936', the CPU single-core score was '11738', and the multi-core score was '124947'.

The CPU benchmark results using '

Geekbench 6 ' were a single-core score of '2264' and a multi-core score of '13085'.

The single-core score details look like this.

The detailed multi-core scores were as follows:

The overall score of

the Passmark PerformanceTest V11, which runs five different benchmarks and gives a score, was 10381. This software compares the current benchmark score with past benchmark scores and displays the percentile of where the current result ranks overall, and the result is in the 93rd percentile from the minimum, which means it's in the top 10%.

The CPU score was 30890, which is a percentile of 86%, which is also quite high.

The 2D score was 629, which is in the 49% percentile, so it's pretty much in the middle.

The 3D score was 16377, which is in the 71% percentile, slightly above average.

The memory score was 3014, which is in the 64% percentile. That's about in the middle.

The disk's score was 47759, which is in the 95th percentile. This is a fairly high score, within the top 5%.

Passmark PerformanceTest also has a function that allows you to save previously run benchmark results as a baseline for comparison, so we've listed the results of running PerformanceTest on

the Razer Blade 16 , which is equipped with a GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, Microsoft's Surface Go 4 and Surface Laptop Go 3 , and, since PerformanceTest has been updated from V10 to V11 from this time, the same OMEN Transcend 14, with V10, for reference.

The CPU scores look like this. The top Razer Blade 16 is equipped with a 24-core, 32-thread Core i9 14900HX, so the difference is clear.

2D score comparison. Since we are comparing the top of the RTX 40 series, the 4090 and 4070, the specs are as expected.

3D score comparison. The Surface 2 models, which are primarily designed for business use and have built-in Iris Xe graphics and UHD graphics, are quite far behind.

Memory score comparison.

Disk score comparison. Here, the OMEN Transcend 14 outperforms the Razer Blade 16.

When we ran

the official benchmark tool for the 3DCG software 'Blender,' the number of samples processed by the GPU per minute was '1398.997186' for the monster, '721.298682' for the junk shop, and '685.333652' for the classroom.

For CPU processing, the monsters were '101.316844', the junk shop was '62.063059', and the classroom was '44.557547'.

The results of running the '

FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION Benchmark ' in full screen are as follows. At maximum resolution and high quality, which is the most demanding setting, the score was '5541' and the rating was 'somewhat comfortable.'

In addition, the results of running all the selectable resolutions and qualities are summarized as follows. There was no screen flickering or stuttering, and it worked without any problems at any resolution or quality.

Quality/Resolution 3840×2160 2540×1440 1920×1080 1280×720
Lightweight quality 5541 (somewhat comfortable) 9425 (Very comfortable) 12168 (Very comfortable) 13576 (Very comfortable)
Average quality 4065(Normal) 7514 (comfortable) 10243 (Very comfortable) 12863 (Very comfortable)
high quality 3463(Normal) 5988 (somewhat comfortable) 8027 (comfortable) 10048 (Very comfortable)

The OMEN Transcend 14 is the world's lightest 14-inch gaming PC, so some people may want to use it for mobile purposes. We will continue to test whether it can play games satisfactorily even when you are away from home and cannot get a power source, whether the battery lasts, whether the fan noise is not noticeable when playing games in a coffee shop, and whether it can dissipate heat so that you can play games while it is on your lap.
