Lenovo ThinkPad P1 G4 laptop review: Success with Vapor-Chamber & GeForce RTX 3070

Super Vapor. We have already tested the base model of the ThinkPad P1 G4, and now we have the second test: The workstation offshoot of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme G4 achieves a much better CPU performance with a drilled-out cooling system. At the same time, we test the 16-inch WQUXGA LCD in 16:10 format.

When Lenovo launched the ThinkPad P1 in 2018, the distribution of roles in the workstation lineup was clear: The new premium model was supposed to pick up buyers who needed a particularly thin and light mobile workstation and could sacrifice some performance for it. The classic workstation model Lenovo ThinkPad P52 on the other hand, offered more performance with less mobility.

The new Lenovo ThinkPad P1 G4 still has its mobility advantage compared to the ThinkPad P15 G2, the current full-fat ThinkPad workstation. However, customers do not necessarily have to sacrifice performance anymore - at least on paper. Lenovo has significantly upgraded the ThinkPad P1 and equipped our test model with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and 4K UHD+ resolution that corresponds to one of the strongest configuration variants. Since we recently tested the ThinkPad P1 2021 in a lower-end configuration, we refer to the review of the ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 with Nvidia T1200 for details about the configuration, input devices and design.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 is available with three different 16-inch displays in 16:10 format. The basic option, a WQXGA LCD (2,560 x 1,600), we have already tested. Our review unit includes the matte 4K UHD+/WQUXGA screen without touch - the third option is the same display, in glossy, with touch and Wacom digitizer.

The brightness value of 600 cd/m² stated by Lenovo is exceeded by the LG panel with an average of 610 cd/m². In the test field of premium laptops in the 15- to 16-inch format, the screen of Lenovo's ThinkPad P1 G4 is clearly the brightest.

The response times are not particularly good - the WQXGA option is better in this respect. The difference is particularly glaring compared to the OLED display of the HP ZBook Studio 15 G8; the OLED variant of the ThinkPad P1 G3 is unfortunately no longer available in the ThinkPad P1 2021.

Lenovo advertises the WQUXGA screen installed here with a factory calibration. In fact, we measure pretty good values ex-factory with Calman and the X-Rite i1Pro 2. A DeltaE value of 2.2 for the color values means that the deviations are minor. However, there was still room for improvement. After calibration with the X-Rite i1Profiler, the DeltaE dropped to 1.0. As always, we provide the corresponding color profile for free download.

The black value of 0.41 cd/m² is not particularly outstanding for an IPS LED display, but the high brightness still ensures a good contrast of 1537:1. Together with the high color space coverage of 98.9% of the wide AdobeRGB color space (Lenovo advertises 100% AdobeRGB), the picture quality of the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 is excellent, and the 8-bit panel is well suited for image editing.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P1 2021 easily masters outdoor use. The matte surface helps the bright 4K UHD+ display easily outshine daylight on cloudy days. However, direct sunlight can still be challenging even at 600 cd/m².

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
31.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 14.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 80 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 90 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse 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 19810 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The quality of the IPS technology is reflected in its excellent viewing angle stability, which is also without fault in Lenovo's ThinkPad P1 2021.

Lenovo workstation performance significantly better with VaporChamber

Lenovo relies on the latest and most powerful components that Intel and Nvidia currently offer. In Intel's case, this means processors from the Tiger-Lake H series. The three Core CPUs (i7-11800H, i7-11850H, i9-11950H) have eight cores, the also offered Xeon W-11855M is a six-core.

The selection of available graphics chips is much bigger. As an absolute basic option, the P1 G4 is available without a dedicated GPU, i.e. only with the integrated Intel graphics. There are seven dedicated graphics chips; Nvidia T1200, RTX A2000, RTX A3000, RTX A4000, RTX 5000 and for the first time in the P1 GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3080.

In any case, the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 has two SO-DIMM slots for a maximum of 64 GB of memory. This can also be ECC RAM when the ThinkPad laptop is configured with Xeon. Depending on the model variant, the Lenovo laptop has one or two M.2 2280 ports - model variants with Intel GPU, T1200 or RTX A2000 have two, all others only one mass storage slot.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-11850H is a current processor from the "Tiger-Lake" series with eight cores and 16 threads. Nominally, the TDP of this CPU is 45 watts; however, this consumption is not sufficient to reach the maximum clock rates of 4.8 GHz on all cores. With our CPU list the Intel processor can be compared with other CPUs.

Actually, the i7-11850H is practically as fast as the i7-11800H, the difference is mainly due to the vPro support of the 11850H - but in the ThinkPad P1 G4, the difference between the two is big. The reason is not the processor, but the cooling system: The model with GeForce RTX 3070 tested here contains vapor-chamber cooling. Therefore, the processor can permanently consume around 60 watts under pure CPU load here, whereas the CPU of the less equipped ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 with Nvidia T1200 was limited to around 40 watts. In the Cinebench R23 multi-core test, the Vapor-Chamber P1 is 27% faster than the cheaper model, it is roughly on par with the HP ZBook Studio 15 G8.

We could not determine a CPU performance limitation in battery mode.

System performance

The Lenovo ThinkPad P1 G4 is very fast in everyday use. In PCMark10, it is overall in the top position in the comparison field, which also speaks for the very good system performance.

As good as the performance is: We had to restart the ThinkPad laptop very often. The reason was graphics errors that sometimes occurred after standby; the entire picture was then covered with black and white stripes. Since this error did not occur in the first test model, we assume it is a singular problem of this test device.

GPU performance

GPU-Z Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070
GPU-Z Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 is one of the most powerful mobile GPUs of Nvidia's current "Ampere" generation. In the case of Lenovo's ThinkPad P1 G4, however, the 5120 shader units are far from their maximum performance because Lenovo sets the GPU to a TGP of 80 watts - in the past, this variant would have been called "Max-Q".

Thus, it is no wonder that the RTX 3070 is about 10% faster on average across all laptops than here in the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 2021. Nevertheless, the gap to the ThinkPad X1 Extreme G3 with GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is huge (+148%), even compared to the Nvidia T1200 variant of the P1, the GeForce RTX 3070 is more than twice as fast in the 3DMark benchmarks (+118%). In this case, the GeForce is certainly worth it. The conclusion for the professional benchmark suite SPECviewperf is more mixed: Here, the GeForce-P1 achieves partly good, but also partly poor results. A ThinkPad P1 with an ISV-certified Nvidia GPU should be chosen for CAD.

The GPU performance is clearly limited in battery mode. The 3DMark 11 result is about 56% lower without a power supply (13,508 points in the 3DMark 11 GPU score).
