Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ARH7 laptop review: Ryzen 5 6600HS meets good 16:10 display

16-incher worth a recommendation. With the IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ARH7, Lenovo creates a very exciting overall package. Until now, we did not have a Ryzen 5 6600HS with an integrated Radeon 660M in our test. In addition, there is a bright 16:10 display with a high sRGB coverage.
Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ARH7

The tested 16ARH7 model isn't very affordable for the offered performance, considering its price of almost 1,000 Euros (~$998). On the other hand, the 16-inch laptop scores with a high quality and first-rate display. According to the manufacturer, the IPS screen used here offers 350 cd/m², 120 Hz, and 100% sRGB. The resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels is also nothing to scoff at. As the storage solution, a 512-GB NVMe SSD is used, and the DDR5 working memory, which is unfortunately soldered and cannot be expanded, offers 16 GB. As already mentioned, for the processor, Lenovo has decided for the rather rare Ryzen 5 6600HS that uses a Radeon 660M.

Since the case is to a large extent identical to the already tested 5 Pro 16IHU6 with Core i5-11300H and GeForce MX450, and the connections are also similar except for a single detail (the USB-C 3.2 Gen2 port has to make do without Thunderbolt support), we won't discuss the case, connection equipment, and input devices again here. You can find the corresponding information in this review of the sibling model.

Display

One of the largest highlights and purchase arguments for the 16ARH7 is the excellent display that doesn't commit even a single slip up in any discipline.

* ... smaller is better

The 16-inch display comes in the 16:10 format and delivers a quite sharp image, thanks to its fairly high resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. A 100% sRGB coverage is also respectable, but all the competitors achieve the same here. However, in terms of the response time, none of the competitors is able to keep up with the IdeaPad 5. Around 7 ms black-to-white and 14 ms grey-to-grey is otherwise known more from gaming laptops. This is not surprising, since Lenovo has equipped the 16-inch laptop with a 120-Hz panel.

In terms of the brightness, the IdeaPad also places on top. An average of 409 cd/m² is an extremely good value that also allows using it outdoors. The viewing angles are at IPS typical levels, so they are also generous.

Lenovo also deserves some praise for the high color accuracy. Already in the state of delivery, the display produces very natural colors that can even be improved further by a calibration. The black value of 0.32 cd/m² and contrast of 1,297:1 also give no reason for complaint, even if it isn't sufficient for the top position here.

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
7.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 4.1 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.7 ms rise
↘ 7.4 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 17 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.2 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19661 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

The performance of the IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ARH7 can be considered mid-range. A hexa-core processor should offer sufficient performance in future years, just like 16 GB of RAM and an NVMe SSD. As expected, the 16-inch device shows some weaknesses in the 3D speed.

Test Conditions

The preinstalled Lenovo Vantage software offers a large number of options to adjust the system to your personal preferences. Particularly relevant in this regard is the "Power & Performance" item, which includes three profiles (see screenshot). All of our measurements were taken using the "Intelligent Cooling" mode with the "Automatically switch to High Performance mode" box checked. This is supposed to allow the system to use its full performance in demanding tasks, without getting unnecessarily loud or consuming too much power during simple tasks such as office, video, or web chores.

Processor

The Ryzen 5 6600HS is a current hexa-core model from AMD's Rembrandt generation, which tries to attract customers with 16 MB L3 cache and a clock speed of up to 4.5 GHz. The 6-nm chip is able to work on 12 threads in parallel via SMT. AMD specifies a TDP of 35 watts, which falls between classic performance CPUs (more than 40 watts) and power-saving versions (less than 30 watts). In our loop test with Cinebench R15, the 6600HS strikes a good figure. In contrast to many other laptops, the speed remains very constant, which speaks for the cooling system. The constant performance is significantly ahead of the Core i7-1260P, Core i7-1165G7, and Core i7-11370H. The AMD chip performs more at a level of the Core i7-12700H.

DPC Latencies

The 16-inch laptop reveals some minor weaknesses in the latencies. According to the LatencyMon tool, the laptop – like many of its competitors – is not ideally suited for audio and video processing in real-time.

Storage Solution

The storage solution delivers a mixed performance. While our measured performance values, the speeds during sequential reading and writing, etc., are quite convincing, after a while in the long-term test with DiskSpd, we see some strong variations. However, you shouldn't be able to notice the problem unless you pose some constant heavy demands on the 512 GB M.2 SSD from Samsung (PM9A1 model).
