Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G2 AMD laptop review: With a matte 4K LCD and Ryzen 5000

First AMD ThinkPad with a UHD display. Until now, the 4K UHD displays had a glossy surface in the 14-inch ThinkPads, and the AMD Ryzen models of the ThinkPad T14 and its siblings were not offered with 4K displays at all. This changes now with the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 AMD with a Ryzen 5000 and a UHD monitor that has a matte surface to boot.
Benjamin Herzig, 👁 Benjamin Herzig (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇨🇳 ...

Until now, the Lenovo ThinkPad P series has been a bastion for Intel processors. There is one exception though: The 14-inch Lenovo ThinkPad P14s, a mobile entry level model among the Lenovo workstations, has also been available in a version with AMD Ryzen CPUs since last year. While the Lenovo workstation laptop used the AMD Ryzen Pro 4000 last year, with the ThinkPad P14s G2, the AMD Ryzen Pro 5000 naturally follows.

The ThinkPad P14s AMD predecessor already delivered an excellent CPU performance, but it lacked a dedicated GPU. This unusual lack also concerns the newer model, so it will be interesting to see how it fares in the comparison with more conventional workstations with Intel CPUs and Nvidia GPUs.

Because Lenovo did not make any changes in the case at all, we refer you to our review of the Lenovo ThinkPad T490 based on the identical design for information on the design, equipment, and input devices.

For laptops that use the same design as their predecessor model, changes in other areas have to provide the arguments for a purchase. The display is one such area. However, in the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G2 AMD most LCD options are still identical to those of the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G1 predecessor model, and the 16:9 format of the 14-inch LCDs has unfortunately remained unchanged as well. 

The new change is that for the first time the AMD based model is also offered with a 4K Ultra-HD display (3840 x 2160 pixels), which was still reserved to the Intel ThinkPads last year. In addition, the UHD LCD has been glossy before, but now it is matte. While we were able to test the new, matte UHD LCD as well as the low-power LCD with a Full-HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), the focus of this review is on the model with the 4K UHD LCD.

The brightness of the UHD display is supposed to reach 500 cd/m², and this is really the case for the top value. The maximum value is indeed 512 cd/m², but the average brightness of the Lenovo laptop is "only" 486 cd/m². This makes it slightly darker than the glossy UHD LCD that were able to test in the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8. But in contrast to that, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) is not used for brightness control here. And another advantage that stands out compared to the low-power FHD LCD is that the response times of the UHD screen are significantly better.

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 17031 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Even though the ThinkPad laptop is supposed to be already calibrated in the state of delivery, our measurements with the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 Colorimeter and Calman show a red tint. Our calibration using the X-Rite i1Profiler removed the tint. The created color profile is available for your free download as usual (see "Download ICC file" link above). After the calibration, the display is excellent, with a very sharp content display and vibrant colors, which is also due to the good contrast value.

Not only is the sRGB color space covered completely, but the wide DCI-P3 color space is also almost completely covered as well at 96.8%. This means that we can definitely imagine using the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G2 with its Ultra-HD LCD for image processing.

The matte surface is a great improvement for using the laptop outdoors. You don't have to worry about annoying reflections, and the high brightness makes working with it outdoors very comfortable. However, direct sunlight still creates some difficulties.

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
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 15 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 61 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
52 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 26 ms rise
↘ 26 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.7 ms).

The viewing angle stability? Since IPS displays are used in almost all laptops, this is hardly a problem anymore, and the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 AMD also turns out excellent in this area.

CPU Performance: The Ryzen 5000 improves the single-core performance in the Lenovo laptop

In the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G2 AMD, you have the choice among two Ryzen Pro CPUs from AMD: the AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 5650U and the AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U. In contrast to other workstations, the P14s AMD is not available with a dedicated GPU. This means that the integrated AMD graphics chip has to do the job. A single M.2-2280 SSD also does the job of the storage solution. In terms of the RAM, the maximum is 48 GB of DDR4-3200 with 16 GB of that being soldered in. The single SO-DIMM slot is able to accept a 32-GB module at most.

Processor

The AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U is a processor with eight cores and sixteen threads that is based on the Zen 3 architecture and the Cezanne U series. As a CPU of the U series, the typical TDP is 15 watts and the clock rates range between 1.9 and 4.4 GHz. You can compare the processor with other current CPUs in our CPU list.

Since we tested the ThinkPad P14s G1 with the Ryzen 7 Pro 4750U, which is the direct predecessor of the 5850U processor, you can easily see the advantage of the Ryzen 5000 compared to the Ryzen 4000. The newer Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 AMD is about 10% faster in the multicore benchmark. The advantage is even greater in the single-core test, where the 5850U is on average 17% faster than the predecessor model. Another interesting comparison is with the P14s G2 Intel and the ZBook Firefly 14 G8 that uses the i7-1165G7. The Intel CPUs are significantly slower under load on several cores. They only have some partial advantage in the single-core performance.

Graphics Card

The AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 serves as the single GPU. GPU-Z calls it "AMD Radeon Pro Graphics," which is an indication of the special workstation drivers that are used in the ThinkPad P14s Gen 2.

With the certified drivers, customers that use CAD solutions, for example, will know that their software will run on the ThinkPad laptop. However, the pure performance is as weak as expected. As an entry-level workstation with an integrated graphics chip without its own dedicated storage, the performance capabilities are less than half of the workstation average. But at least the performance is slightly better than that of the predecessor. On the other hand, the ThinkPad P14s Intel and ZBook Firefly 14 G8 are both ahead with their dedicated GPU (Nvidia T500).

If you run the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G2 AMD on battery power, the GPU performance in the 3DMark 11 GPU Test drops by about 33%.

Gaming Performance

The Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G2 AMD is hardly suited for games. While less demanding games such as "Dota 2" are easily playable, the newer games that demand more performance are only able to run smoothly at the minimal detail setting at most.

Emissions

Noise Emissions

The fan remains turned off while the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s AMD G2 runs in idle operation, regardless of the selected performance mode. It will therefore also remain silent during everyday surfing and office operations. The noise level changes under load, but the fan still runs very quietly in our Median Test with 3DMark 06. 28.19 dB(A) are hardly audible anymore. After several minutes in the stress test, the noise level increases to 40.77 dB(A), which is clearly noticeable. However, the active cooling never became annoyingly loud.

If you place your ear against the keyboard, you can hear a quiet hiss, but you won't be able to hear this noise anymore in regular working distance from the laptop.
