Lenovo Legion 7 16IAX7 laptop review: Fast 16-inch gamer with 165 Hz display

Intel HX-CPU and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. The Lenovo Legion 7 16 offers everything that gamers desire. In addition to the fastest mobile processor from Intel, there is also the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and a fast 165 Hz display. The cooling system also manages to keep the hardware cool, but at 4,499 Euros (~US$ 4,500), the high-end gamer is by no means a bargain.

The Legion 7 16 is Lenovo's gaming flagship in a 16-inch format and offers everything that is currently available on the market: an Intel HX CPU, a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, a WQHD panel with 165 Hz, and up-to-date PCIe 4.0 SSDs. However, this also comes at a price, as Lenovo charges the hefty sum of 4,500 Euros (~US$4,500) for the high-end gamer. In this review, we compare the new Legion 7 16 to the gaming competition, which mainly consists of 17-inch models, and also to the Legion 7 16 with AMD hardware.

Case - Legion 7 with aluminum chassis

With its silver-gray aluminum chassis, the Legion 7 16 is visually rather discreet for such a powerful gaming laptop. We really like the restrained design and the stability is excellent. Neither the base unit nor the display lid can be dented or twisted, and creaking noises are completely absent. The screen's edges are very thin and the device looks very modern.

Although the screen hinge is slightly offset at the front, it allows for a maximum opening angle of 180 degrees. The display can also be easily opened with one hand and teetering is not an issue. Selective applications of pressure did not result in any image distortions. 

The discreet appearance quickly becomes a thing of the past as soon as the extensive case lighting comes on. In addition to a circumferential light bar in the front area of the base unit, light effects also come out of all fan grills and the Legion logo on the lid is also illuminated. A total of seven different profiles are available, but you can also adjust everything manually.

Together with the two 16-inch models from Asus, the Legion 7 16 is one of the most compact models in the comparison field. At 2.6 kg, it is not a lightweight in itself, but most competitors are a little heavier here as well. However, you shouldn't forget the bulky 300-watt power adapter, which is heavier than some ultrabooks at more than one kilogram.

Equipment - Gamer with 2.5 GBit/s Ethernet and Thunderbolt 4

The Legion offers plenty of up-to-date interfaces, most of which are located on the back. On the base unit's upper side are helpful labels that make plugging in cables much easier. We would have liked a standard USB-A port on the sides (e.g. for USB sticks) as well as a card reader, for which there is actually plenty of space.

Communication

In addition to the fast 2.5 Gbit/s Ethernet port, the Legion 7 16 also offers a very modern WLAN module (Wi-Fi 6E) which includes support for modern 6 GHz networks as well as Bluetooth 5.2. In our standardized WLAN test with our Asus reference router, the Killer AX1675i achieves very high and stable transfer rates, and we were able to connect to the 6 GHz network without any problems.

Webcam

Lenovo installs a 1080p webcam in the upper display frame, which can be deactivated with a switch on the right side of the case. Image quality is slightly better than the 720p modules. Overall, the webcam serves its purpose. There is no IR sensor for facial recognition via Windows Hello.

Maintenance

The baseplate is fastened with six Phillips screws and still remains very tight after loosening the screws, which is why it is best to use a suction cup to loosen the baseplate. Inside, the fans can be cleaned and you have access to the two RAM slots, the WLAN module and the two M.2-2280 SSD slots. However, additional covers have to be removed for this, some of which are also screwed.

Input Devices - Lenovo installs single key illumination

The keyboard with the dedicated numeric keypad offers decent quality overall with sufficient key travel, but there is still room for improvement. The keys sometimes seem a little rickety, while the space bar and Enter key are relatively loud. Other gaming laptops are slightly better here. There is no criticism for the keyboard illumination, which can be configured individually for each key and you can let your creativity run wild here.

The large ClickPad (12 x 7.5 cm) is slightly offset to the left in the base unit and the normal pointer control works perfectly. The noise is only quite loud when clicking the lower area. Most users will use an external mouse for gaming anyway.

Display - Lenovo installs a fast 165 Hz panel

Slight screen bleeding at full brightness (appears more intense here)
Slight screen bleeding at full brightness (appears more intense here)

Lenovo installs a 16-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2560x1600 and a matte surface, which offers very good subjective picture quality. Movements are very smooth thanks to the high refresh rate, all content is displayed very sharply and even bright surfaces do not look grainy at all. The panel also offers very fast response times and we did not detect any PWM flickering. HDR content and G-Sync are also supported.

Lenovo specifies a brightness of 500 cd/m², which is even exceeded by our review sample with an average of 523 cd/m². However, the black value of 0.44 is comparatively high, which is why the contrast ratio is "only" ~1,200:1. Of course, other display technologies such as OLED or mini-LED have an advantage here. You can also see slight halos on a dark background at full brightness, but this should not be a problem in practice.

In delivery state, our analysis with the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2) reveals a blue cast in the grayscale and a color temperature that is slightly too cool, but colors are very accurate. With our own calibration (profile is available for free download above), we were able to get the blue cast under control and signficantly improve the color accuracy.

Although the panel only covers the small sRGB color space, this laptop is primarily intended for gaming and so the display is very well suited for this purpose.

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
5.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.5 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. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).

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. » 16 % 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 19657 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

You probably won't use a heavy 16-inch notebook outdoors very often, but thanks to the good brightness and matte screen, the Legion 7 16 can nonetheless be used in bright environments. The viewing angle stability of the IPS panel is very good.

Performance - Intel HX CPU & GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

 
 
 

Testing Conditions

Lenovo offers three different performance profiles with the preinstalled Vantage software, which can be switched either via software or the Fn+Q key combination. The activated mode is very conveniently indicated by the illumination of the power button (white = Balanced, blue = Quiet, red = Performance). We have listed the respective TDP/TGP settings in the following table.

Mode CPU load GPU load Stress test Max. fan noise
Quiet 113 watts 64 watts CPU: 86 watts
GPU: 42 watts
39 dB(A)
Balanced 121 watts 115 watts CPU: 86 watts
GPU: 115 watts
48,8 dB(A)
Performance 165 -> 136 watts 115 watts CPU: 94 watts
GPU: 150 watts
54,2 dB(A)

Additionally, the graphics mode can be switched in the Vantage software and you can set it so that only the dedicated graphics card should be used. This did not have a major impact in our random tests, which is why we carried out the measurements and benchmarks with the preset hybrid GPU mode in combination with Performance mode. However, Performance mode is not available in battery mode.

Processor - Core i9-12900HX

The Core i9-12900HX is currently Intel's fastest mobile processor, based on the desktop chips of the Alder Lake S class. There are 8 performance cores, including hyperthreading and 8 efficiency cores, so the chip can process a total of 24 threads simultaneously. Consumption peaks at up to 165 watts and then quickly levels off at 136 watts, which enables excellent results in the benchmarks. The Core i9 is not particularly efficient, but the advantage over the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX in the Legion 7 16 of the same build is an average of 39 percent in all our CPU tests. In addition, the review device is on a par with larger 17-inch models that are also equipped with the Core i9-12900HX.

Performance remains completely stable even under prolonged load, but consumption quickly levels off at around 40 watts in battery mode, which corresponds to a performance loss of a whopping 75% in the multi-core tests. More CPU benchmarks are available here.
