For gamers and content creators: Lenovo Legion 5 Pro Notebook Review

Husky i7 outclasses the competition With up to 120 W of constant CPU power consumption, the i7-12700H is even challenging the more expensive i9 CPUs. And with 16 GB of RAM, 2 TB of NVME storage and an unleashed RTX 3060, gamers and content-creators have all manner of performance reserves at their disposal. Does the 16-inch QHD display, and over-the-top connectivity deliver that convincing overall package? That’s what we aim to clarify here.

Last year, Lenovo delivered an exceptionally impressive and extremely popular high-end gaming laptop in the Legion 5 Pro. We have already tested the Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti version, so we thought we’d now take a closer look at the slightly cheaper 120W RTX 3060 version. For gamers who prioritize value for money and who are satisfied with running at 60 FPS on the latest games in QHD, or creatives who focus on CPU performance, Lenovo has put together a convincing combination here. Competitors will include both other RTX-3060 laptops with comparable Intel i7 or AMD Ryzen 7 CPUs, such as the recently tested HP Omen 16, or significantly more expensive notebooks such as the Gigabyte Aero 16 with an i9 on board. The latter will be hard pressed to develop its performance potential to the same degree.

Case - Legion 5 Pro with plenty of Metal

Lenovo provides a solid metal case for the Legion 5 Pro. Its workmanship is flawless, the 16-inch gaming laptop oozes quality, and neither casual or deliberate handling results in flexing surfaces or evokes any untoward creaking noises. Even the lid, which is often an Achilles heel in many competitive laptops, tested firm leaving the display rigidly in the desired position.

In terms of weight, the heavy use of metallic materials is noticeable. The Legion is one of the heaviest of any comparable devices. The cooling vents are spread right across the base of the unit. Lenovo is bucking the trend of presenting ever thinner and smaller devices and has clearly focused on robustness and cooling potential for this potent exposition of hardware.

Connectivity – It’s all there with Thunderbolt 4 and USB-C Power Delivery

Lenovo also sets a good example in terms of both the type and number of ports and slots that are distributed over three sides of the case. Ergonomically it favors right-handed users providing just a single USB-A port (USB 3.2 Gen 1) on the right-hand side of the case. This reduces the risk of getting tangled up in display or network cables with a mouse. By way of example, this port is ideal for wireless dongles for peripheral devices.

To the left there are two state-of-the-art USB-C ports, one is Thunderbolt 4 and the other conforms to the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard with full 20 Gbit/s and Displayport 1.4 support. The rest of the ports can be found on the back of the case, where Lenovo has fully exploited the available space. In addition to two other USB-A 3.2 Gen-1 ports, there is a third USB-C port, via which the laptop can also be charged at up to 135 W. Connectivity is topped off by an HDMI port and an RJ45 port for wired networks. The power plug slot is also at the back of the case.

Given the variety and placement of ports and slots, the Legion 5 Pro can be readily deployed as a desktop replacement device with multiple monitors and peripherals, and as a mobile device it is equipped for any situation. There’s also the opportunity to limit the use of dongles to the DisplayPort adapter.

Communication

The Legion 5 Pro is equipped with the extremely popular Intel AX211 WLAN module. With Wi-Fi 6E on board it doesn’t just provide the most current Wi-Fi standard. The card delivers up to its full potential and occupies top position among comparable devices. It’s not just that data transfer speeds are impressive, but also that it doesn’t disappoint as a gaming notebook in everyday use. With stable and fast transfer rates, even large game downloads are of no consequence. A Gigabit Ethernet port is available for wired connections. Here we would have preferred the faster 2.5 GbE port, given that it is already installed in many competing devices. The speed advantages in commensurate networks or when connecting to NAS systems are enormous and would have been well matched to the rest of the hardware configuration.

Webcam

When it comes to the webcam, Lenovo offers standard fare; unfortunately, no better than we have  been accustomed to with gaming laptops for years. The image quality is undoubtedly acceptable for one or the other zoom call, but here we would have liked to see across the board improvements in color rendition, resolution and dynamic range.

Accessories

Apart from the laptop itself, only the power supply is in the box. This has been standardized for all Legion 5 Pro configurations, so our RTX-3060 model also gets the somewhat oversized 300 W power supply. The additional 1 kg (~2.2 lb) weight just for the power supply should be taken into account if you plan to be on the road with the Legion.

Maintenance

For repairs or upgrades, the Legion requires ten Philips head screws to be loosened. Lenovo uses three different sizes, so you should take care to remember where the different screws belong. Removing the base plate requires more effort than we would like. Particularly the plastic elements in the back third of the plate are secured very tightly. We progressively worked our way from front center to the back of the plate with appropriate aids. To loosen the plastic covers, it might be best to use appropriate tools from iFixit (affiliate link). Alternatively, one could use a plastic credit card with deftly applied force until they come loose.

Inside the case, we can expect a tidy picture and above all an insight into the elaborate cooling solution for the powerful hardware. In principle, users have access to the two M.2 slots and RAM. To cool them, massive heat sinks cover the fast drives, and the RAM is under a plastic cover.

Input Devices - a compelling and comprehensive solution for both gamers and content-creators

Keyboard

Keyboard performance for intensive gaming sessions is nothing less than outstanding on this sixteen-inch device. The chiclet keys with their somewhat unusual shape and curvature offer a palpable pressure point, pleasant resistance as well as solid stroke. The RGB key backlights can be adjusted for four zones on the keyboard and illumination works well. Visually, the slightly smaller keys on the numeric pad and the regular-sized arrow keys are not quite as well defined as they might be, but there is no reason for complaint in purely functional terms.

Touchpad

The touchpad is sufficiently large for a gaming laptop and allows for smooth gliding across its surface.  Haptic properties when scrolling and clicking are of high-quality. The mouse touchpad is offset slightly to the left, which on occasion leads to right-clicking instead of left-clicking when used too casually. As a result of the high 165 Hz refresh rate using the Legion seemed very smooth and precise. Although most gamers will use a mouse, no one should have any issues navigating in Windows or scrolling through websites.

16-inch displays are becoming more and more standard in the latest gaming notebooks, and the Legion version is an excellent example. There’s quite a lot on offer here for gamers, content writers as well as for everyday use. The matte display offers typical IPS contrast and excellent readability from virtually any angle. Compared to the competition, the Lenovo has the highest maximum brightness level, although display luminance at only about 85% could be better.

The QHD resolution in the 16:10 version with 2,560 by 1,600 pixels provides a clear image in every usage scenario, and the combination of the matte display and its high brightness level even make outdoor use feasible. Gamers will appreciate the high refresh rate of 165 Hz and the pleasantly fast response times. Although this display doesn’t pose a serious challenge for the 360 Hz 4 ms screen on the recently tested MSI Vector GP76, it still cuts the mustard for fast shooters.

With solid values for common color spaces and good factory calibration, color reproduction on the Legion 5 Pro is unquestionably suitable for everyday use. With an average color difference of around 2.5 DeltaE ex works, the color rendition on the 16-inch device is immediately ready for semi-professional image editing, while professionals can get even more out of the display with some manual calibration.

Our calibration with professional equipment reduces the DeltaE to less than 1 (the profile is available above for download) and thus delivers excellent color reproduction within the limits of sRGB. In order to be able to do without an external monitor for professional and color-critical applications, we would have liked to have better coverage in the AdobeRGB and DCI-P3 color spaces. In this regard, especially photographers and image editors come off somewhat short. For videographers who primarily produce for the web, however, the display is more than adequate.

The X-Rite color application on the Lenovo allows it to offer several additional presets for frequently used color spaces, something that is enormously helpful for everyday creative content work. For example, sRGB mode may be of interest for online design, while videographers using the Rec709 profile can even colorize video material with some degree of confidence. 

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
6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 4 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. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 8 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. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.4 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 17551 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

As already mentioned, the high brightness level of over 500 cd/m² helps outdoors. Direct sunlight should still be avoided, but that applies to the majority of all laptop displays. The matte coating certainly prevents you from seeing more of yourself than the screen content.

The matte surface of the display helps to distribute and reduce direct reflections.

Performance - unbridled i7-12700H meets fast RTX 3060

While Lenovo has been able to deliver more than most of its competitors so far (a plethora of ports, an excellent case and a great display), the performance it delivers is virtually unrivalled. The i7 outclasses its competition, even though it is partly equipped with i9 processors. The RTX 3060 also delivers thoroughly impressive performance. To achieve such stellar system performance, Lenovo underpins its core components with 16 GB of state-of-the-art DDR5 4800 RAM and a responsive 2 TB RAID-0 NVME SSD array.

Testing Conditions

The Vantage software that comes with the unit may be somewhat of an overkill but does offer three different performance modes. All our performance tests were conducted in power mode, which lives up to its name and provides the i7 with up to 120 W for peak and 100 W for constant power. The colored LED in the power button changes, serving as a visual indicator (red: power mode, white: balanced, blue: silent). Silent mode also lives up to its name: After an initial 120 W peak, the processor consumes 65 W, and the fans sound pleasantly restrained. If you are not necessarily looking for the highest Cinebench scores, then balanced mode is also a good choice for CPU-intensive computing. The power consumption is about 85-90 W, but compared to power mode, the fan noise is a little quieter. 

Processor

It’s mid-2022 and the i7-12700H has become a familiar acquaintance. It has become the Intel standard for fast content creators and gaming notebooks. Performance varies greatly from device to device and is dependent on both the manufacturer’s configuration as well as the cooling management for a specific device.

The i7 is the mainstream powerhouse of Intel’s latest Alder Lake generation and delivers six performance cores with hyper-threading support and clock rates of 2.4 to 4.7 GHz. Background tasks or multi-core support are provided by the eight efficiency cores (1.8-3.5 GHz) and complete the 14 cores delivering a total of 20 threads.

Lenovo allows the CPU to work unrestrained in the Legion, allowing the 16-inch notebook to easily reach the top of the leader table as soon as multi-core performance is a requirement. Some notebooks deliver slightly more single-core performance, and notebooks with the i9 have a slight lead here. However, single-core performance is relevant for very few applications nowadays and such performance advantage is virtually undetectable in everyday usage.

The Legion 5 Pro cuts an excellent figure especially under constant load: While many notebooks can only maintain performance of their hardware for the renowned first or second Cinebench run, the Legion 5 Pro delivers persistent performance without fluctuations. There is always enough power for gaming as well as for creative-content applications.

In addition to our standardized test sequences, we also used the laptop with our YouTube channel. We cut, colorized and exported our videos with BlackMagics DaVinci Resolve 17. In contrast to the common Adobe applications, that mainly use just the processor, the CPU and GPU are used equally in this editing software. Due to generous power levels, our source material (4k, BlackMagic RAW) was processed without any issues and without dropped frames. Furthermore, the image editing in PhaseOnes Capture One and the class leader Photoshop did not cause us any problems.

System Performance

The system performance of this top-drawer laptop is irrefutable, and despite the ‘small’ Ampere graphics card, our test configuration is very well positioned relative to other laptops. As shown by both our PC Mark results and our own observations, the Legion masters everyday tasks at lightning speed and nothing will shift it out of its stride. It’s easy to edit an image in Photoshop, jump across to a video editing program, and watch a 4k vlog on YouTube along the way; and then there’s still ample capacity even with a ton of open browser tabs.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon test results of our review device are in part much better than those of the competition, but the Legion is not the device of choice when it comes to real-time audio editing. However, given that it’s essentially a gaming laptop, and given that our YouTube video dropped just a handful of frames, the LatencyMon results may be acceptable. However, the CPU/GPU load during 4K video playback was indeed quite high and we would have liked to see a somewhat more effective deployment of system resources.

Storage Devices

The latest PCI-E Gen 4 NVME SSDs are in effect already so fast that their performance differences in everyday usage hardly play a role and are almost imperceptible. Nevertheless, Lenovo has decided to include two of their fastest exponents in a RAID-0 array on the Legion 5i Pro.

While each of these SSDs scores well individually and top our performance tables, they almost double their read and write rates in a double array. Around 12 GB in peak measurements sounds extremely impressive on paper, but there are probably not many applications that will benefit from such break-neck speeds. Of course, this is by no means a complaint, given that there’s 2 TB of total storage space available for games, pictures or high-resolution video data. Especially in everyday work, the annoyance of having to work with various external hard drives becomes avoidable. The SSD endurance test does show repeated drops after longer periods. This could be an indication of excessively high temperatures, which occur under high constant SSD load.
