Lenovo LOQ 15 Core i7 Review: Affordable Legion alternative that throws up an Intel vs AMD conundrum

Legion for the rest of us. With the LOQ 15IRH8, Lenovo aims to deliver a distinctive, capable gaming laptop that goes easy on the wallet without the baggage of its other budget lineups. Does this plastic-clad contender succeed? How does this Core i7-13620H model fare against its similarly priced AMD Zen 4-powered cousin? Our testing reveals a mixed bag.
Lenovo LOQ 15 Core i7 in review

The Lenovo LOQ series is aimed at budget, entry-level gamers similar to the Dell G Series, HP Victus, Asus TUF, MSI Katana, and Acer Nitro lineups. We recently reviewed the LOQ 15APH8 with an AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS and Nvidia RTX 4050 Laptop GPU. The LOQ 16IRH8 likewise combined Intel and Nvidia silicon, pairing a Core i7-13620H with RTX 4060 graphics.

Now in our labs is the 15-inch LOQ 15IRH8, powered by the Core i7-13620H and RTX 4050. Our test model also came equipped with 16 GB of DDR5-5200 memory, a 512 GB PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD, and a 165 Hz QHD G-Sync display.

This upper midrange config rings the cash registers at ₹1,01,988 (US$1,224) in India, while the 1080p 144Hz variant can be had for ₹97,790 (US$1,050).

Connectivity: 140 W USB-C power delivery but no Thunderbolt 4

Port selection and placement is exactly the same as the Intel-based LOQ 16. Unlike the LOQ 15APH8's use of a USB 2.0 port among other USB 3.2 ports, the Intel variants standardize fully on USB 3.2 connectivity.

According to Lenovo, the lone USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port is capable of 140 W power delivery. There is no USB4 or Thunderbolt 4 option provided.

Warranty

In India, Lenovo offers a standard one-year on-site warranty for the LOQ 15. Buyers can additionally opt for several warranty upgrade and accidental damage protection options directly from Lenovo.

Display: 165 Hz QHD G-Sync panel presents a significant upgrade option

Our LOQ 15 unit came equipped with a BOE QHD panel with a 165 Hz refresh rate. The panel supports Nvidia G-Sync in the discrete GPU mode. Lenovo rates the brightness at 350 nits, but we recorded up to 383 nits at the display's brightest point.

There's backlight bleed in the corners, but the overall brightness uniformity is good at 90%. Black levels and contrast ratio outperform the AUO-made QHD+ panel in the LOQ 16IRH8.

* ... smaller is better

The display covers nearly 97% of the sRGB color gamut, which should be good enough for most gaming and web content. However, Adobe RGB and Display P3 coverage is only mediocre.

That being said, the LOQ 15IRH8's QHD panel has far better color characteristics compared to the 1080p 144 Hz panel in the AMD-powered LOQ 15APH8.

Out-of-the-box colors show large deviations, but our calibration routine using the X-Rite i1Basic Pro 3 spectrophotometer and Calman Ultimate software from Portrait Displays shows significant improvements in Grayscale and ColorChecker Delta E values.

The panel still has trouble in accurately reproducing the 100% Blue part of the spectrum.

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
8.41 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.96 ms rise
↘ 4.45 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

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 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34 ms).
50% grey to 80% grey response times increase to 11 ms with overdrive disabled
50% grey to 80% grey response times increase to 11 ms with overdrive disabled

Response times are a vast improvement over the 1080p panel in the LOQ 15APH8. The panel uses overdrive by default, which helps in fast 5 ms 50% grey to 80% grey transitions. Disabling overdrive from the Lenovo Vantage app increases the combined 50% grey to 80% grey response time to 11 ms. 

The panel does not show PWM flickering at all tested brightness levels. For more information, refer to our article "Why PWM is such a headache" and also our PWM Ranking Table for a comparison of measured PWM across all reviewed devices.

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 ≤ 100 % brightness setting

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18170 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is fine for general use, although particularly bright sunny days can be overwhelming for the 350 nits panel. Viewing angles are relatively stable with minimal brightness and color loss at the extremes.

Performance: Core i7-13620H struggles in putting up a steady show

In India, Lenovo provides multiple LOQ 15 configuration options with both Intel and AMD processors. The Intel-based models offer a choice between the Core i5-12450H and Core i7-13620H CPUs, while the AMD variants feature the Ryzen 5 7640HS or Ryzen 7 7840HS parts. For graphics, customers can select laptop versions of the RTX 2050, RTX 3050, RTX 4050, or RTX 4060 GPUs.

For the US market, Lenovo configures the LOQ 15 with either the Core i7-13700H paired with the RTX 4050 or the Core i5-13420H coupled with the RTX 2050.

 
 

Testing Conditions

Lenovo Vantage allows easily changing power profiles, RGB effects, and other properties of the LOQ 15. The app also allows experienced users to set their own CPU power limits, duration, GPU TDP, GPU to CPU Dynamic Boost, and temperature limits as desired.

The table below shows how the default power profiles affect the PL1 and PL2 of the processor. For our testing, we used the Performance profile and engaged the dGPU mode to allow the Core i7-13620H and the RTX 4050 to fully flex their muscles. Battery tests were run in the Quiet profile with the GPU set to Hybrid mode.

The LOQ 15's Core i7-13620H struggles to offer a well-sustained performance
The LOQ 15's Core i7-13620H struggles to offer a well-sustained performance

The LOQ 15IRH8's Core i7-13620H trails behind the Ryzen 7 7840HS-powered LOQ 15APH8 by as much as 16% in Cinebench multi-core tests despite sporting the same thread counts, likely due to higher clocks in the latter. However, we see a reversal of roles in Geekbench multi-core. The Intel chip also puts up a good show in most single-core benchmarks.

The LOQ 15IRH8's chassis and cooling seem to be having trouble in properly sustaining a Cinebench R15 multi-core loop test. The Core i7-13620H finds a better home in the LOQ 16IRH8 wherein the processor's performance is very stable.

An analysis of the Cinebench R15 multi-core loop test shows how the in-built power profiles influence various CPU parameters.

While the Performance mode is supposed to allow the processor to utilize up to 135 W PL2, we see that it only maxes out at 116.5 W. The Balance mode also seems to make do with lesser package power than possible (101 W vs 117 W), but here we see a more stable run compared to Performance.

It is possible that the LOQ 15IRH8's cooling system is struggling whenever the power limit crosses 116 W, which explains the poorly sustained performance in this benchmark.

Cinebench R20 multi-core scores drop by 23% on battery power, though single-core performance takes only a minor hit.

Storage Devices

The Kioxia SSD has trouble with sustained reads
The Kioxia SSD has trouble with sustained reads

Our LOQ 15IRH8 unit came equipped with a Kioxia 512 GB M.2 2230 PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD. You can replace it with a larger capacity M.2280 drive if needed. There's also a free M.2 2280 slot available for storage expansion.

Overall drive performance trails behind the Kioxia 1 TB drive found in the HP Victus 16. The SSD also struggles with maintaining a consistent read speed as we see performance dips after the 25th run in our DiskSpd read loop test at a queue depth of 8.
