Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 3 review – fantastic efficiency
Source: Laptop Media English
Now, this is impressive. Even the lowest spec version of this laptop is capable of outperforming devices equipped with the Core i7-1165G7. That’s what quad-core CPUs built on a 7nm architecture are capable of. And if you add a memory stick in the free slot inside, the graphics performance becomes pretty competitive as well. To be honest, the device is decent. Especially for its business purposes. It still has one of the best keyboards on the market – one that also features spill resistance. And a really smart choice would be going for the Ryzen 3 5300U since it has both power efficiency and performance.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Lucienne (Zen 2, Ryzen 5000):

R5 5500U: A hexa-core APU designed for use in ultra-thin, upper mid-range laptops. The Ryzen features six Zen 2 CPU cores running at 2.1 GHz to 4.0 GHz alongside the Vega 7 graphics adapter (448 unified shaders running at up to 1,800 MHz). One could be forgiven for thinking Ryzen 5 5500U is a renamed Ryzen 5 4500U - which is not the case. Ryzen 5 5500U is most similar to Ryzen 5 4600U, the most noteworthy difference between the two being the faster iGPU model of the former.

R7 5700U: A laptop-grade APU featuring eight SMT-enabled Zen 2 cores running at 1.8 GHz to 4.3 GHz and a Vega series graphics adapter with 8 CUs clocked at up to 1,900 MHz.

R3 5300U: A mobile quad-core APU with Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.6 to 3.8 GHz and a Vega graphics adapter with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1500 MHz. The Ryzen 3 CPU is very similar to the Ryzen 3 4300U.
