Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 3 review
Source: Laptop Media English
Thankfully, the build quality is on point, and you get an option for a fingerprint reader, an IR face recognition scanner, a privacy shutter, and a Full HD Web camera. Once again, throwing more money at Lenovo will result in a better series, which is not what you sign up for. The device is solid – it will save itself when you throw a glass of water on top of it, but it would be good to have fewer options (and more stuff coming by default).

86.9% Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G3 AMD laptop review: Lightweight workstation without dGPU | Notebookcheck
Lenovo traditionally like to reuse their T series ThinkPad laptops as workstations. The ThinkPad P14s Gen 3, for example, is the ThinkPad T14 Gen 3's counterpart. Unusual for a mobile workstation: The P14s doesn't have a dedicated GPU.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA T550 Laptop GPU: Entry level dedicated graphics card for professional laptops based on the consumer GeForce MX550 with 1024 shaders and a 64 bit memory bus. Therefore it uses the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. Sometimes also called Quadro T550.

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

AMD Radeon 680M: Integrated graphics card in the Ryzen 6000 mobile series APUs based on the RDNA2 architecture with 12 CUs (= 768 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 2.4 GHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Alder Lake-P:

i5-1240P: A mid-range 28 W Alder Lake family CPU featuring 4 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. This SoC is designed for use in ultra-light (yet actively cooled) laptops. The i5's performance cores are Hyper-Threading-enabled for a total of 16 threads. Core i5-1240P runs at 1.2 GHz to 4.4 GHz; it has a built-in 80 EU Iris Xe GPU and supports "Essentials" tier vPro features.

i7-1260P: An upper mid-range Alder Lake family CPU featuring 4 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. This 28 W SoC is designed for use in ultra-light (yet actively cooled) laptops. Core i7-1260P's performance cores are Hyper-Threading-enabled for a total of 16 threads. This 12th Gen CPU runs at 1.5 GHz to 4.7 GHz and supports "Essentials" tier vPro features. Last but not the least, Core i7-1260P has a built-in 96 EU Iris Xe GPU, not unlike certain 11th Gen Tiger Lake-UP3 processors.

AMD Rembrandt (Zen 3+):

R7 PRO 6850U: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 3+ cores clocked at 2.7 to 4.7 GHz and a RDNA2 graphics adapter with 12 CUs clocked at up to 2,200 MHz. The TDP is specified at 15 - 28 Watts. The Ryzen 7 PRO 6850U is the professional version of the consumer R7 6800U with additional management features and the Microsoft Pluton Security processor.

14.00:

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.

86.9%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
