A lot of Intel’s hopes for 2021 are pinned on Tiger Lake-H. After all, Intel has to put something up against the Ryzen 5000 CPUs. The Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 comes with only a Tiger Lake-UP3 chip. However, it can draw up to 35 watts of power for a significant period of time, showing the world what a Tiger Lake chip can achieve with such a high TDP.

When Intel released the Tiger Lake chips in the fall of 2020, the classical U series was scrapped for a reason. The new processors do not have a fixed 15-watt TDP. Instead, Intel provided UP3 series chips with a TDP range of 12 to 28 watts.

However, this does not mean that manufacturers cannot set an even higher TDP. Lenovo’s ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 is a good example of that. We found in our extensive review of the E14 Gen 2 that Lenovo set the TDP to 35 watts.

The ThinkPad E14 cannot maintain this TDP over a prolonged period of time, though. Nevertheless, the sustained TDP of 29 watts is still very high, and it shows. Even though the Intel Core i7-1165G7 has only four cores, it is able to comfortably beat the hexa-core AMD Ryzen 5 4500U in the identically built ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 (AMD) in the multi-core benchmarks. The Ryzen 7 4700U is still more capable, but only in thread-bound workloads.

The Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 can serve as a preview of the level of performance that Tiger Lake-H35 CPUs can provide—with a higher power draw Intel is able to squeeze more performance out of four Golden Cove cores than older Core CPUs.

I was an ardent reader of Notebookcheck’s laptop reviews even back in school. After writing reviews as a hobby, I then joined Notebookcheck in 2016 and have worked on device reviews and news articles ever since then. My personal interest lies more with laptops than smartphones, with business laptops being the most interesting category for me. Technology should make our lives and work easier and good laptops are an essential tool for that to happen. This is why laptop reviews are not just my work but are also my passion.
