LG Gram Pro 16 ultralight laptop with Nvidia GeForce chip review - Bold minimalism

Could barely be any slimmer. LG's Gram laptops are slim and lightweight. Under the name LG Gram Pro, the manufacturer is now launching a laptop to top it all off. It is even slimmer, more lightweight and has even more power at its disposal.

We have already thoroughly tested the LG Gram Pro as a convertible. As a conventional laptop, however, the LG Gram Pro may find itself at home in a different performance class. In addition to the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H, the device is equipped with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050. We last tested an LG Gram with a dGPU in 2022. However, due to the relatively low TDP values of its processor and GPU, this Gram 17 didn't totally impress us. Taking a look at the LG Gram Pro 2-in-1, on the other hand, we recently noticed that the manufacturer has significantly improved the laptops' performance. We will try to clarify the extent to which this affects our test device during this review. The RTX 3050 inside this laptop is a component which was launched almost four years ago. We sporadically noticed that the Arc iGPU with 128 EUs may offer slightly more performance.

The LG Gram Pro 16 isn't the only lightweight and slim laptop to feature a dGPU. The Samsung Galaxy Book4 Ultra,  Asus VivoBook Pro 16, Lenovo Yoga Pro 9 and the HP Spectre x360 16 all have one, too. In turn, the LG device is by far the lightest in the comparison field. This is because it uses a case made from ultralight magnesium and the rest of the laptop's materials have been kept as minimal as possible. Let's find out what impact this had on our test device's performance.

Case

In principle, the LG Gram Pro 16 doesn't look all too different compared to the LG Gram Pro 2-in-1 which we recently tested. It just doesn't feature the 360° hinges and the glass panel in front of the screen. Apart from this, both of the 16-inch devices barely look any different visually. Only upon closer inspection do you notice that certain corners aren't quite as sharp on one device as they are on the other. Ultimately, you can speak of one coherent design. You can also get the LG Gram Pro as a 17-inch model, but without an OLED display. This version uses the same high-quality IPS panel as the LG Gram 17

When it comes to stability, the Gram Pro 16 doesn't feel quite as flexible as the normal LG Gram—but it also isn't completely stiff. You can twist the screen and base ever so slightly, press down the base cover a little and when twisting the device, you may also hear some subtle creaking noises. You won't likely damage the laptop in doing so, but this isn't guaranteed. The Gram Pro 16's hinge stops at around 160°. Up until then, the display can be opened easily. The hinge holds the screen securely at every angle, but we unfortunately can't say the same about the display itself. When using the laptop outside, a small amount of wind already reveals the material's high flexibility. The screen starts to wobble.

Among the comparison devices, the LG Gram Pro 16 is the lightest, weighing about 1.3 kg. In addition, the laptop is super flat—we measured around 12 - 15 mm at different points.

This makes the manufacturer's choice of power supply unit seem out of place. On Amazon and in our drawer, we found several suitable power supply units that are significantly smaller and lighter than the 90-watt power supply unit delivered with the Gram. This is mainly due to the fact that you'll also have to carry a thick power cable with you. This combination weighs 420 grams, whereas a comparable power supply from Rocoren weighs 134 grams less including the original USB-C cable from LG—and it is significantly more compact. In a laptop where every gram is as important as in the LG Gram Pro, the power supply should also be correspondingly light.

Connectivity

The Pro version of the LG Gram is missing a card reader and a Kensington lock slot but apart from this, its connectivity options are identical to the Gram series. There are no differences between the individual LG Gram Pro models when it comes to their choice of ports.

A soldered-on Intel AX211 takes care of WLAN and Bluetooth reception inside the LG Gram Pro 16. Wi-Fi 6E connections are possible, but Wi-Fi 7 is not. Its connection speeds within the 5 GHz and 6 GHz networks are sufficient, but significantly slower than in the LG Gram Pro 2-in-1.

Webcam

The Full HD webcam inside the LG Gram Pro has to fit into the device's flat screen. Unfortunately, the small camera doesn't have the best picture quality. We mainly noticed a slight green cast in various lighting situations.

Maintenance

To unscrew the LG Gram Pro 16, you first have to remove its four rubber feet. Unlike many other LG devices, these are not glued on. The four PH0 screws underneath can be removed quickly and removing the base plate isn't all too difficult using a plastic tool. Only the two NVMe SSDs can be upgraded, but many components are still modular. You can get the corresponding spare parts from LG. It's worth taking a look at their website for battery, keyboard, screen and touchpad replacements, as well as many small parts.

Sustainability

LG ships the LG Gram Pro 16 in a cardboard box without much plastic. There is no plastic inside the box, but there is some fabric made from easily recyclable polypropylene. We have not yet received any information from LG on points such as CO₂ emissions or the use of recycled materials in this product. For many other laptops, LG now has corresponding data sheets available for everyone to view. 

Warranty

The LG laptop is covered by a standard 12-month warranty in the United States. You can purchase warranty expansion plans via the manufacturer's website.

Input devices

Keyboard

The base of the LG Gram Pro has a thickness of 9 mm. This doesn't leave much room for a high key lift. Nevertheless, typing on our test device's backlit keyboard feels quite nice. Its haptics are appropriate and the keyboard isn't dented during normal use—even if the base itself is a little flexible.

Touchpad

The Gram 16's touchpad is about 13 × 8 cm in size. It is easy to work with. Clicks are recognized over almost its entire surface. Touch inputs using your fingers are precise right into the corners. The touchpad's palm recognition also works perfectly, but it can't be switched off.

Display

The LG Gram Pro 2-in-1 and the LG Gram Pro 16 both use the same 16:10 OLED panel. This model includes a 120 Hz refresh rate, HDR, 2,880 × 1,800 pixels and a brightness of about 420 cd/m². As a result, this panel gets a little brighter than the one inside the Pro 2-in-1. During our last test, the gaps between the blue sub-pixels on the panel caught our eye. Thankfully, these are a lot less noticeable without the glass pane over the panel.

* ... smaller is better

Straight out of the box, the LG Gram Pro 16's color space coverage and color accuracy are fit for professional use. Even so, the LG Gram Pro 2-in-1—fitted with the same panel—showed slightly better values. In turn, its maximum brightness was a little lower in comparison. We have often found that the brightness setting of an OLED panel can have a significant impact on color accuracy.

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
14 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.5 ms rise
↘ 3.5 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 30 % 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
6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.5 ms rise
↘ 2.5 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 0.165 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 14 % 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 detected 481 Hz
Amplitude: 41 %

The display backlight flickers at 481 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 481 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 17482 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outside, the Gram Pro 16 doesn't do too well. Its shiny display surface has to contend with some extreme reflections. You can only read from it well outside if you place something dark behind the screen.

As is typical for OLEDs, the Gram Pro 16 hardly shows any color changes when viewed from steeper angles. Only when the viewing axis is almost parallel to the screen surface do rainbow effects become apparent.

Performance

Our test device is equipped with an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 (4 GB GDDR6 RAM) and 32 GB LPDDR5 RAM. Two fast NVMe SSDs from Samsung also come pre-installed. Other configurations are available with 8 or 16 GB RAM, with an Intel Core Ultra 5 125H and without a dGPU.

 
 
 

Testing conditions

The LG Gram Pro 16 has four presets for fan and power control. We left the cooling mode set to High during most of the benchmarks. We only ran the gaming benchmarks using the mode Max.

In many different test scenarios, we found that the laptop's performance didn't remain constant in any performance mode. After a short boost phase, it took around 5 to 10 minutes for the system's performance to stabilize at a consistent level, no matter the performance preset.

Processor

The Intel Core Ultra 7 155H is a powerful processor. It can juggle 22 threads while still offering good performance capacity at low power consumption levels. However, most of the competitors have set their processor's TDP higher, resulting in our test device suffering a little in comparison. At the end of the day, you won't likely be buying an LG Gram for its particularly high computing power. 

The negative effect resulting from the dGPU became visible during our Cinbench R15 loop. Even with maximum ventilation, the processor got too hot after a few runs and was throttled. The LG Gram Pro 2-in-1 showed more consistent performance. However, the equivalent cooling system in this convertible does not have to dissipate the additional waste heat of an RTX 3050.

System performance

PCMark 10 results using Max cooling mode
PCMark 10 results using Max cooling mode

If you place the LG Gram Pro 16 under high loads for longer periods at a time, then the cooling mode Normal will barely be enough to make working on this laptop possible. In all system performance benchmarks, the laptop even came below the LG Gram Pro 2-in-1 that only features an iGPU. This means the advantage that a dGPU can bring is not made use of fully inside our test device. In the cooling modes High and Max, the Gram Pro does get quite loud at 45 dB(A) and up to 52 dB(A) respectively.

Depending on how you aim to use the slim laptop, you might want to adjust its performance mode. During our test, we noted that the quietest mode is good enough for surfing and office applications, while 4K streaming already led to some stuttering. On the other hand, the LG Gram Pro 16's highest cooling mode has a big influence on how the system performs. This puts the laptop at least within striking distance of its in-house competitor. Also noticeable here: the Gram Pro 16 didn't outperform the 2-in-1 device without a dGPU in any of the PCMark 10 sub-sections. Even in the digital content creation section, the Gram Pro 16 couldn't achieve higher scores despite it being equipped with the RTX 3050.

DPC latencies

Chips and drivers from Nvidia and Intel seem to be slowly getting along better again. At least we didn't see any excessively high DPC latencies during this test. Nevertheless, the Gram Pro 16 is not suitable for real-time audio processing—at least according to LatencyMon.

Storage devices

Two fast SSDs from Samsung get to work inside the LG Gram Pro 16, although they are not combined using RAID. During continuous operation of the SSDs, we noted brief drops in read speeds during the test, which could indicate that the hard disk drives are overheating.
