Lenovo Legion 5 17 with RTX 3060 in review: Strong gaming laptop with current-gen AMD Ryzen CPU

Very solid gaming system! Gamers rejoice; the new Lenovo Legion 5 17 offers a solid gaming performance thanks to the AMD APU and GeForce RTX 3060 GPU. In this review, we will look at potential drawbacks, numerous measurements and benchmarks.

The Legion series from Lenovo has been a household name in the gaming scene for a long time now. The Legion 5 is far from inconspicuous visually, since its striking design has also made it to the latest 2022 model, which is based on an AMD APU.

On top of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H and the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, users may choose from three different Nvidia GPUs. The GeForce RTX 3050 base model of the Lenovo Legion 5 17 starts at 1150 USD, while our test configuration with a GeForce RTX 3060 mobile GPU is available for approximately 1220 USD. For the price, users also receive a 144-Hz 1080p display, 16 GB of RAM, and a 512-GB NVMe SSD. Windows 11 Home edition is included by default. The system can be configured according to your preferences through Lenovo's online shop.

We used similarly equipped devices for comparison purposes. The table below shows the competitors we chose.

Case

Aesthetically, the Lenovo Legion 5 17 is very clearly a gaming laptop. The lid is adorned by visual accents in the form of the Legion logo. The Lenovo Legion 5 17 comes without any RGB lighting. The selection of materials is good, since the device feels very premium despite the plastic-based construction. Although the base is decently rigid, although the center of the keyboard area slightly yields under pressure. This is not very pronounced, however. We would have liked to see a similar level of rigidity for the lid, which is unfortunately very susceptible to twisting. At least, it is fairly resistant against concentrated applicationis of pressure. The lid can be opened up to a wide maximum angle of 180 °. The two hinges reliably prevent teetering. Aditionally, the base is heavy enough for one-handed opening.

With 3.1 kg (~6.83 lbs), the Lenovo Legion 5 17 is significantly heavier than its competitors. Similarly, the footprint of our test unit is larger. The 300-watt AC adapter, which is both slim and powerful, weighs just above one kilogram (~2.2 lbs).

Connectivity

When it comes to the port selection, the Lenovo Legion 5 17 offers a good variety of ports and a sensible layout. Most of the ports are on the back. However, there is still one USB port on each side and an SD card reader. There is still some room for improvement, since the space on the back of the device could have been used to keep the ports further apart and give the USB ports in particular slightly more room to breathe.

SD Card Reader

Unlike the Lenovo Legion Y740-17IRHg, Lenovo has once again equipped the Legion 5 17 with a fullsize SD card reader. It offers USB 3.0 speeds and reaches close to 90 MB/s during our sequential read benchmark. For this purpose, we used our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60).

Communication

The Lenovo Legion 5 17 is equipped with a Realtek Wi-Fi module. In our test, the Wi-Fi module performs sufficiently well for day-to-day use. Compared to competitors equipped with fast Intel modules, our test sample performs significantly worse. Overall, the performance of the Realtek Wi-Fi module falls behind compared to the gaming class average results.

Webcam

There are barely any gaming laptops with good webcam quality out there. Consequently, the Lenovo Legion 5 17 is lacking in terms of color accuracy and sharpness, as the pictures show.

Accessories

The scope of delivery includes a 300-watt AC adapter that weighs close to 1 kg (~2.2 lbs) and a few pamphlets.

Mainetenance

The bottom plate has to be removed for users to access the components. Using appropriate tools to prevent accidentally damaging the laptop is recommended. An additional cover protects both RAM modules and the two SSD slots. The 80-Wh battery and the cooling solution, which consists of three heatpipes and two fans, take up the majoriity of the room.

Lenovo equips the Legion 5 17 with a 6-row chiclet keyboard with subtle backlighting and two brightness levels. If desired, the backlight can also be disabled entirely. The keys are sufficiently large and the arrow keys are normal sized. The shallow travel of just 1.5 mm is accompanied by a somewhat dull feedback and a distinct actuation point. As a result, the keys do not feel spongy.

Touchpad

Touchpad / clickpad

The integrated touchpad occupies an area of 7 x 10.5 cm (2.8 x 4.1 in) and looks somewhat lost on the large palm rest. The smooth surface is very responsive and responds very quickly to inputs. We did not encouter inconsistent behavior from any area of the touchpad of our test unit. The two buttons are located on the bottom and produce a distinct audible click when pressed. We find the position of the touchpad to be slightly too far towards the left. We would often accidentally press the right mouse button instead of the left one during daily use.

Display - 144 Hz and No PWM

The Lenovo Legion 5 17 comes with a matte Dolby Vision panel and a 144-Hz refresh rate. The 17-inch display has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels for a pixel density of 127 PPI. Alternatively, the Legion 5 17 is also available with a traditional 60-Hz panel.

We were able to confirm the advertised brightness of the panel with our own measurements. With 305 nits, it only slightly exceeds the promised value (300 nits). The contrast ratio of 1292:1 matches our expectations for an IPS panel. However, competitors cannot quite keep up due to their slightly worse black values.

Users of the Lenovo Legion 5 17 will not have to worry about PWM eye strain, since it does not rely on PWM for controlling the display's brightness. Unfortunately, our test device suffers from backlight bleeding. During dark scenes, there is significant screen bleeding around the edges.

The display quality is consistently good in all aspects. Despite the matte surface, there is no graininess. Furthermore, Lenovo appears to have precalibrated the display of the Lenovo Legion 5 17, since the deltaE-2000 values of the grayscale and colors relative to the sRGB color space fall within the ideal range of less than 3. While there is a minor blue tint, this is very common for IPS screens. Regardless, we were able to minimize it through our manual calibration. Additionally, we were able to further improve the low deltaE-2000 values by a small margin.

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
9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (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 (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
15 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7 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 0.692 (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 (36.8 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 21819 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The outdoor suitability of our Lenovo Legion 5 17 is limited. If you choose to use the laptop outside anyway, staying in the shade is recommended. The brightness level is then sufficient for most tasks. Our viewing angle test shows a result that is typical for an IPS panel. Only the four corner pictures appear to show a faint veil. During normal use, this is not visible.

Performance

For a gaming laptop, the CPU and GPU performance are the highest priority. If price is a consideration as well, all roads eventually lead to the Legion 5 17, since the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 mobile GPU work well together for a solid gaming performance that is entirely sufficient for native 1080p gaming. Those who are still looking for faster performance can configure the Lenovo Legion 5 17 with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H and a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 mobile GPU. Naturally, these options come at a price premium.

Test Conditions

The preinstalled Lenovo Vantage Center allows users to customize various system settings. For example, the GPU performance can be adjusted with the predefined energy profiles. All benchmarks were run with the performance profile enabled. This allows the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 to access its full power budget of 130 watts.

Processor

With six cores and twelve threads, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H offers decently fast performance. However, the Lenovo Legion 5 17 cannot keep up with its octa-core competitors. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600H still performs well and the results are above the average for this CPU.

For the Legion 5 17, Lenovo relies on a fast Samsung SSD. In this case, it has a capacity of 512 GB and uses the fast M.2 PCIe interface for data transfers. As our results show, however, this setup cannot quite keep up with the competition. At 512 GB, the capacity is not exactly massive, either. On a gaming laptop, we expect at least 1 TB of storage space.
