Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ALC05 in review: Compact, powerful, enduring

Compact powerhouse. Lenovo's 14-inch laptop offers a powerful APU, space for two NVMe SSDs, and very good battery runtimes. The RAM (16 GB, dual-channel mode) cannot be expanded.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch, Sam Medley (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

Lenovo's new Ideapad 5 14ALC05 is a 14-inch subnotebook powered by a Ryzen-5-5500U-APU. The competitors include devices like the Honor MagicBook 14 and the Acer Swift 3 SF314-42. The Schenker VIA 14 and the HP ProBook 440 G8 are also alternatives, but they are more expensive than the IdeaPad.

Since we have already tested a sister model with the same build, we will not go into further detail about the case, the ports, the input devices, or the speakers. That information can be found in the review of the Lenovo Ideapad 5 14ARE05.

Display - IPS with poor color space coverage

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

The 14-inch FHD (1920x1080) screen has stable viewing angles thanks to its matte finish. While the display offers good brightness (314.7 cd/m2), the contrast ratio (785:1) is too low. The display has decent color accuracy, but the AdobeRGB and sRGB color spaces are not fully covered (36% and 56% coverage, respectively).

This is the same panel that is also used in the identically built IdeaPad 5 14ARE05. Nevertheless, the measured values differ slightly (this is normal). Two identical displays are never one hundred percent identical.

In contrast to the screen of the sister model, the screen of our review device shows flickering at a frequency of 29,800 Hz at all brightness levels - an indication of brightness regulation via PWM.

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
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15 ms rise
↘ 13 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 60 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
41 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 23 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 52 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.1 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 29800 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 29800 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 29800 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14804 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance - hexacore power

Lenovo's Ideapad 5 14ALC05 is a 14-inch notebook that offers more than enough computing power for office and Internet applications.

Test conditions

The notebook offers three energy profiles: "Smart Cooling," "High Performance," and "Battery Saving Mode." Users can switch between the profiles via the key combination "Fn" + "Q" or via the preinstalled Lenovo Vantage software. We performed our tests with the "Smart Cooling" mode active. Additionally, we ran some benchmarks with the "High Performance" mode active. The results are in the comparison tables.

Processor

The CPU component of the Ryzen-5-5500U-APU (Lucienne) consists of a six-core processor with a base speed of 2.1 GHz. The CPU can boost up to 4 GHz. Simultaneous multithreading (two threads per core) is supported.

During Cinebench R15's multi-core benchmark, the CPU runs at 3.8 GHz for a short time before dropping to 3.6 GHz. The CPU lands between 1.7 and 4 GHz during the single-core test. In battery mode, the CPU runs at 3.5 GHz and 1.4-3.4 GHz during the multi- and single-core tests, respectively.

Multi-thread (network operation)
Multi-thread (network operation)
Single thread (network operation)
Single thread (network operation)

The results in the single-core benchmarks are almost on par with those of the Ryzen-5-4500U APU installed in last year's Ideapad 5. This is not surprising since both APUs are based on the Zen 2 architecture (Zen 3 is only used in the Ryzen-5-5600U APU) and both have a maximum clock of 4 GHz. However, the 5500U APU pulls ahead in terms of multi-threaded performance since it supports simultaneous multithreading (the 4500U does not).

We test how long the CPU can boost by running the Cinebench R15 multi-core test in a loop. After about 2 minutes, the Turbo clock drops to just above 3 GHz. The CPU boost is noticeable in the "Smart Cooling" mode. The "High Performance" profile results in a marginal increase in performance at best.

System performance

The nimble and smooth system delivers good PCMark results. The Ryzen APU has more than enough computing power for office and Internet applications. Beyond that, it can handle computer games to a limited extent. The RAM (16 GB, DDR4-3200, soldered) runs in dual-channel mode. Expanding the memory is not possible.

Graphics card

AMD's integrated Vega 7 graphics core supports DirectX 12 and reaches speeds of up to 1,800 MHz. The GPU's top clock speed is steadily hit and held, as shown in extended gameplay of The Witcher 3. The "High Performance" mode has a marginal impact on  graphics performance at best.

Gaming performance

The Ryzen 5 APU smoothly plays through many of the games in our database. Most titles are playable at HD resolution (1280x720) and Medium to mixed-High quality settings. Games with moderate hardware requirements perform better. It is also possible to play some current games, albeit with reduced quality settings.
