The second generation of the ThinkPad P14s is equipped with Tiger Lake CPUs and an Nvidia Quadro T500. In this case, the latter is also what will persuade users to opt for the new model.

In our tests of the first generation Lenovo ThinkPad P14s, we were able to take a look at two configurations. One of them was equipped with an Intel Core i7-10510U and the Nvidia Quadro P520, the other one with an AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U and an integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics unit.

The new model is now available with Intel's Tiger Lake CPUs and is up against the competition with a Core i7-1185G7 and an Nvidia Quadro T500. In our tests, the Quadro T500 in particular performs better than the previous model's internal GPU, the Quadro P520.

On the other hand, the processor's performance is somewhat disappointing. In terms of raw CPU benchmarks, the Intel Core i7-1185G7 is only able to reach the level of other laptops equipped with this CPU in a fluctuating manner. Moreover, the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 4750's multi-core performance is significantly higher, but in return, the i7-1185G7 performs a bit better in single-core mode.

However, the overall system performance is beyond reproach, and it's very good in the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 according to the PCMark 10 results. In this respect, Lenovo's workstation not only benefits from the Quadro T500, but also from the 32 GB of RAM and the very fast 1 TB SSD installed in our test configuration.

In addition, battery life is once again much better than that of the AMD model. With a result of 9:11 hours, it doesn't reach the score of just over 10 hours that the model with the Intel Core i7-10510U achieves, but the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U only lasted just under 6 hours in our Wi-Fi test.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
