Lenovo Legion 7 16ACH in review: Gaming powerhouse with good 16:10 display

Overclocking. The Legion 7 16ACHg6 brings all the latest computer games smoothly onto the matte 16-inch display (2560x1600 pixels, 165 Hz, IPS) in the 16:10 format. The Ryzen 9 5900HX APU and the GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU can be overclocked automatically.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

The Lenovo Legion 7 16ACHg6 is a high-end gaming laptop. The review sample that we received is one of the top models in the series and has a correspondingly very good configuration level: The Ryzen 9 5900HX APU, the GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU, 32 GB of RAM, and 2x 1 TB NVMe SSDs. The laptop's highlight is the bright 16-inch display in the 16:10 aspect ratio.

Competitors include devices like the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503Q, the Schenker XMG Pro 15 (early 2021), the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (early 2021), the Alienware m17 R4, the MSI GE76 Raider 10UH, and the Asus Strix Scar 17 G733QSA-XS99.

Case - Legion 7 with aluminum chassis

Lenovo opts for a gray (Storm Gray) aluminum case with matte, smooth surfaces for the Legion 7. The case follows Lenovo's Legion design scheme: The lid isn't flush with the back, but the latter extends a few millimeters beyond the lid's edge instead - in the case of our test device, it does so by about 18 mm. The battery is firmly built into the unit, and there is no maintenance hatch. The bottom cover has to be removed to access the internals. More on this later.

While the laptop's design is fundamentally discreet, it can still attract attention. Lenovo has installed lighting elements (LED strips on the bottom edges, illuminated air vents) that run in sync with the keyboard lighting. The light show is joined by the illuminated "Y" within the Lenovo logo on the lid's back.

The laptop doesn't reveal any workmanship and/or stability flaws. The gap dimensions are correct, and no material protrusions can be detected. The base unit has sufficient rigidity. The lid can be twisted a bit, but the whole situation is completely within the limits. The tight hinges keep the lid firmly in position and hardly allow it to wobble. The maximum aperture angle is about 175 degrees. A one-handed opening of the lid is possible.

Within our comparison field, the Legion positions itself in the midfield in terms of dimensions and weight. It's slightly larger and heavier than the 15.6-inch competition, but it keeps the 17.3-inch competition at bay.

Connectivity - Thunderbolt isn't offered by the Lenovo laptop

Four (3x USB-A, 1x USB-C) out of the six USB slots work according to the USB 3.2 Gen 1 standard, number five and six (USB-C; left side, rear) according to the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard. The latter support Display Port via USB-C. This provides the laptop with a total of three video outputs (HDMI, 2x DP).

The USB-C port at the back also supports Power Delivery, which allows charging the battery using a USB-C power adapter. According to Lenovo, a 45-watt power adapter (20 V, 2.25 A) is sufficient to charge the battery in standby, hibernation mode, or when turned off. Charging the battery when the device is on requires a 65-watt power adapter (20 V, 3.25 A) at the very least. Fully supplying the laptop with power isn't possible, since a maximum of 100 watts can be transferred via USB-C.

The ports are distributed across three sides of the laptop. The majority of the ports are located at the back of the device. As a result, connected cables run to the back and don't get in the way. The illuminated labeling of the rear ports deserves praise, since it makes it much easier to plug in a connector without looking.

Communication

The Killer WLAN module carries a chip (AX200) from Intel that supports the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax standards. The transfer speeds determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices nearby, short distance between laptop and server PC) range from decent to good. Wired network connections are handled by a representative from Realtek's well-known RTL8168/8111 family. It performs its tasks smoothly.

Accessories

The laptop comes with the usual documents: A quick-start guide and warranty information.

Maintenance

The bottom cover has to be removed in order to access the interior. To do so, all screws on the underside of the device are removed. Afterwards, the bottom cover can be removed with the help of a flat spatula or a grout finishing tool.

Warranty

Lenovo grants the 16-incher a three-year on-site warranty. Extending the warranty to four years would cost about 50 Euros (~$61).

Input devices - Keyboard with RGB lighting

Keyboard

The flat, smooth keys of the backlit chiclet keyboard have a short travel and a clear pressure point. We like the key resistance, and the keyboard doesn't yield when typing. The brightness of the key illumination (three brightness levels) is controlled using secondary function keys. All in all, Lenovo delivers a keyboard that is suitable for everyday use here.

Touchpad

A multitouch-capable ClickPad (about 12 x 7.5 cm) serves as mouse replacement, and it also responds to inputs in the corners. The smooth surface doesn't restrain fingers when gliding. The pad offers a short travel and a clear pressure point.

Display - 165 Hz IPS in the 16:10 format

The brightness (469.4 cd/m²) and contrast (1,287:1) of the matte 16-inch display (2560x1600 pixels) are very good and good, respectively. The 165 Hz panel offers fast response times and doesn't show any PWM flickering.

The display supports G-Sync (Nvidia) and FreeSync (AMD). These technologies dynamically adjust the refresh rates of the display and GPU in relation to each other. This is intended to create the smoothest image possible - especially in computer games.

* ... smaller is better

The display shows good color reproduction out of the box and meets the target (Delta E less than 3) with a color deviation of 1.45. In addition, it doesn't suffer from a blue tint. Calibration can be used to achieve improvements. The color deviation drops to 1.16, and grayscales are displayed in a more balanced way. The AdobeRGB (73%) and sRGB (94%) color spaces aren't completely reproduced.

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
6.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 4.4 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.8 ms rise
↘ 7.2 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 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than 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 not detected

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.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel can be read from any position. Reading the display outdoors is possible due to the relatively high brightness.

Test conditions

The laptop offers three performance profiles (Performance Mode, Balanced Mode, Quiet Mode) you can switch between using a key combination ("Fn" + "Q") or the preinstalled Lenovo Vantage software. We used the default "Balanced Mode" profile. In addition, we also ran some benchmarks under an active "Performance Mode" profile.

Furthermore, the Vega 8 iGPU integrated into the processor is turned off. This means that the laptop isn't working with Nvidia's Optimus graphics switching solution. The iGPU (and therefore Optimus) can be enabled through Lenovo's Vantage software ("Hybrid Mode") - this has a positive impact on battery life.

Overclocking

The laptop's BIOS hides options to automatically overclock the CPU and GPU. In addition, it's possible to manually adjust the GPU and graphics memory clock speeds. We decided against the latter and only tested the automatic overclocking of the CPU and GPU. The corresponding benchmark results can be found in the comparison tables - identified by the "Performance Overclocking" label.

Processor

The CPU part of the Ryzen 9 5900HX APU (Cezanne) consists of an octa-core processor that operates at a base speed of 3.3 GHz. An increase up to 4.7 GHz is possible via Turbo. Simultaneous multithreading (two threads can be processed per core) is also supported.

The CPU tests of the Cinebench R15 benchmark are processed at 4 to 4.2 GHz (multithread) and 3.6 to 4.7 GHz (single-thread), respectively. On battery power, the CPU runs at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz (multi-thread) and 2.2 to 3.5 GHz (single-thread), respectively.

Single-thread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)
Multithread (plugged in)
Multithread (plugged in)

We verify if the CPU Turbo is also consistently used when plugged in by running the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test in a continuous loop for at least 30 minutes. Turbo is used to a moderate extent. The "Performance Mode" profile results in an increase in clock rates, while additionally activating the automatic CPU overclocking only provides a minimal performance boost.

Storage

Lenovo equips the laptop with two 1 TB NVMe SSDs (M.2 2280) from Western Digital. However, the SSDs don't form a RAID array. One of the two SSDs serves as system drive, the other as data storage. Their transfer rates are very good.

Graphics card

The GeForce RTX 3080 laptop graphics core is Nvidia's current top model high-end GPU. Laptop manufacturers can determine the TGP and therefore the maximum available computing power of an RTX 3000 graphics core quite freely within the limits defined by Nvidia (overview of all RTX 3080 laptops including their TGPs). Lenovo uses the maximum of 165 watts specified by Nvidia (150 watts + 15 watts Dynamic Boost).

The "Balanced Mode" default profile operates with a TGP of 120 watts, and the 165-watt TGP is only implemented when the "Performance Mode" profile is active. A look at the metrics of our The Witcher 3 test reveals that Dynamic Boost is used sparingly if at all. For cross-checking, we ran the "FurMark" tool on its own and were able to measure the maximum TGP of 165 watts.

The 3DMark results are at the expected level. The "Performance Mode" profile results in an increase in graphics performance, and activating the overclocking function boosts the benchmark results a bit further.

The RTX 3080 can access fast GDDR6 graphics memory (16,384 MB). The Vega 8 graphics core integrated into the processor is disabled by default, but it's possible to turn it on.
