Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16IRX8 laptop review: A hefty US$1600 for the GeForce RTX 4060

140 W TGP graphics. The Legion Pro 5 series is home to Lenovo's midrange gaming laptops, but our expectations are nonetheless high considering the lofty starting price of over $1400 USD for just the RTX 4050. The model impresses on most fronts so long as you can live with some notable drawbacks.

The Legion Pro 5 16 IRX8 (or Legion Pro 5i 16 Gen 8) is the successor to the 2022 Legion Pro 5i 16 Gen 7. It introduces several changes including a chassis overhaul with 13th gen Intel Raptor Lake-H CPU and Nvidia Ada Lovelace GPU options to replace the older 12th gen Alder Lake-H and Ampere options, respectively. It's an upper midrange gaming model sitting in between the entry-level IdeaPad gaming series and the flagship Legion Pro 7 series.

Our specific test unit is a middle configuration with the Core i7-13700HX, GeForce RTX 4060, and 165 Hz IPS display for approximately $1400 to $1700 USD. Lower-end and higher-end SKUs are available with the Core i5-12500H, RTX 4050, RTX 4070, or 240 Hz IPS display instead, but all display options at the moment have G-Sync and a native resolution of 2560 x 1600.

Competitors to the Legion Pro 5 16 include other 16-inch gaming laptops like the Razer Blade 16Asus ROG Zephyrus M16Dell G16 7620, or Gigabyte Aero 16.

Case — A Leaner Legion

Visually, the revised chassis has fewer accents and angles for a flatter and more professional look than last year's model especially along the rear. The two-tone gray and silver color scheme is gone in favor of a more uniform appearance. We prefer the new design as it leans towards minimalism while maintaining many of the distinctive Legion features.

Chassis rigidity is excellent on our unit with no audible creaking or terribly weak points. The base and lid exhibit more twisting than the stiffer Blade 16, but not enough to be of any huge concern.

The Legion Pro 5 16 is noticeably larger and heavier than many of its peers. The Aero 16, Blade 16, and Zephyrus M16 are all thinner and lighter than the Lenovo by up to 8 mm or 400 grams which is not insignificant. Though it's certainly nowhere near as bulky as many 17.3-inch gaming laptops, the Legion Pro 5 16 isn't exactly the most travel-friendly option in its 16-inch size class, either.

Connectivity — Lots Of Ports But No Thunderbolt

There is a healthy selection of ports with most of them positioned along the rear. In fact, the model shares the exact same ports and positioning as on the higher-end Legion Pro 7 16IRX8H even though both models are visually dissimilar.

Note that the model does not support Thunderbolt. It at least comes with an RJ-45 port unlike on the Blade 16.

The rear ports are labeled with icons visible from the top of the chassis as shown by the picture above. The icons make it easier to connect cables unlike on the rear ports of the Alienware m18, but they unfortunately do not light up.

Webcam

The 1080p or 2 MP webcam has become standard on gaming laptops. On our Lenovo, however, automatic brightness adjustments would occur slower than usual resulting in a darker picture.

There is an electronic webcam shutter for privacy control but no IR sensor.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. The usual one-year limited manufacturer applies if purchased in the US.

Input Devices — Comfortable And Spacious Keyboard

Keyboard

The keyboard offers 1.5 mm travel, 0.2 mm pitch, and 100 percent anti-ghosting for gaming purposes. The travel and feedback alone are already deeper and stronger, respectively, than the keyboards on the Razer Blade 16 or Asus Zephyrus M16 for a more satisfying typing experience than either competitor.

Certain features remain exclusive to the higher-end Legion 7 Pro series such the mechanical keyboard and per-key RGB lighting. The former is understandable, but we find it ridiculous that Lenovo doesn't offer the latter for our $1500+ configuration. Owners have to settle for quad-zone RGB lighting instead.

Touchpad

The clickpad (12 x 7.5 cm) is about the same size as the one on the Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 (11.5 x 8 cm). Gliding is smooth and responsive with just a bit of sticking at slower speeds for more accurate clicks. However, travel is very shallow when clicking and feedback isn't very strong. Nonetheless, the clickpad works reliably enough for simple tasks when a mouse isn't available.

Display — 165 Hz Minimum

There are two display options for the 2023 Legion Pro 5 16: 165 Hz and 240 Hz. Both support G-Sync, 2560 x 1600 native resolution, and full sRGB coverage while only the 240 Hz panel supports HDR400. The base 165 Hz option should be more than sufficient for the target midrange gamer. Image quality is excellent with surprisingly minimal graininess for a matte panel.

Backlight bleeding could certainly be improved upon. Our unit would exhibit a fair amount of light bleeding which we find to be borderline unacceptable on a gaming laptop of this price range.

Users interested in OLED or wider AdobeRGB colors will have to look beyond the midrange Legion Pro 5 series.

The display comes well-calibrated out of the box with average grayscale and color deltaE values of just 1.2 and 1.65, respectively. Such values are low enough where an end-user calibration is not needed. Calibrating the panel anyway would improve color accuracy even further to <1 as shown by the screenshots below. If we are to nitpick, purple appears to be the represented the least accurately out of all the tested colors with its deltaE of 2.71.

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
10.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.7 ms rise
↘ 4.7 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17909 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

At 400 nits, the display is generally usable under shade. The 240 Hz panel option is slightly brighter if outdoor visibility is a concern. The displays on most 16-inch gaming machines are already brighter than on many midrange Ultrabooks where 300 nits is common.

Testing Conditions

We set our test unit to Performance mode with GPU Overclock active and Hybrid mode off prior to running the benchmarks below. All of these settings are thankfully easily accessible via the Lenovo Vantage home screen.

Note that while MUX is supported for switching between Optimus and discrete GPU mode only, a system reboot would always be required. Advanced Optimus is therefore not supported. G-Sync for the internal display only works when on dGPU mode.

GPU Overclock settings are +150/200 MHz clock/VRAM by default, but can go up to +200/400 maximum

Processor

Our Core i7-13700HX is only about 5 to 15 percent faster in multi-threaded loads than the older Core i7-12700H that it replaces. The advantages are measurable albeit relatively minor. Overall performance is comparable to last year's Core i9-12900H.

Performance sustainability is excellent with no notable dips over time when running CineBench R15 xT in a loop.

Upgrading to the Core i9-13900HX SKU is expected to increase multi-thread performance significantly by 50 to 70 percent over the Core i7-13700HX. If you value processor performance, then it may be worth skipping the Core i5-13500H and Core i7-13700HX options for the Core i9.

System Performance

PCMark results are comparable to other Legion models like the 2022 Legion 5 Pro 16 despite the newer generational processors in our 2023 unit. This suggests that while the CPU and GPU may be faster this time around, they won't necessarily run day-to-day applications like office work or browsers noticeably faster than a gaming laptop from yesteryear.

Storage Devices — Up To Two PCIe4 x4 Drives

Unoccupied secondary M.2 2280 PCIe4 x4 SSD slot
Unoccupied secondary M.2 2280 PCIe4 x4 SSD slot

Our unit utilizes the same PCIe4 x4 512 GB SK Hynix drive as found on the Lenovo Legion S7 16. Performance is excellent with sequential read and write rates approaching 7200 MB/s and 5000 MB/s, respectively, rivaling the popular Samsung PM9A1. Even so, there's still room for improvement as transfer rates may periodically throttle to 6300 MB/s instead of maintaining a flat maximum of 7200 MB/s.
