Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G1 21D6001DMB

88.2% Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G1 laptop review: A powerful, newly-designed HX55 workstation | Notebookcheck
With its ThinkPad P workstation line, Lenovo has given the 2022 model a decent makeover: Instead of two models, there is now only a classic workstation in the form of the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G1. It succeeds the ThinkPad P15 G2 and P17 G2.
Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G1 Review: A powerfully streamlined workstation
Source: On MSFT English
In real world usage however, the P16 typically runs circles around my data processing-heavy workload. Even Office 365, with its ever-increasing GPU dependence, outperformed other slimmer laptops I’ve tested. Thanks in part to the ECC SSD onboard switching between cold apps and recent ones was smooth, there wasn’t a time that CPU-led processes ever bottlenecked, and for the most part, GPU tasks performed admirably. However, the choice of an Nvidia RTZ A2000 seems to be a compromise I can’t figure out. Perhaps it has to do with the wattage choice and power consumption architecture or pricing but the A2000 is already a somewhat problematic GPU and to stuff it into a portable workstation such as the P16 remains a headscratcher. For all other computer related tasks, the P16 is good. Watching videos on the new OLED screen was a pleasure and gaming non-4K content was also a decent experience as long as the titles were developed relatively recently. At best, the P16 becomes the new large screen-sweet spot for mobile workstations for Lenovo as it handles data processing like a champ, however, at worst, an employee’s computational may become capped to specific tasks depsite easy access to memory expansion. Moving from exporting macro-heavy Excel reports and analysis to experimenting with virtualization or machine learning models will require two devices instead of the one P16.

NVIDIA RTX A2000 Laptop GPU: Mid-range professional laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA107 chip with 2,560 CUDA cores. Similar to the consumer GeForce GTX 3050 Ti with certified drivers. Available in different performance variants ranging from 35 - 95 W TGP (max. power consumption).

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

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

i7-12850HX: On Alder-Lake based mobile CPU with 8 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. The performance cores offer hyper threading, leading to 24 threads that can be processed. The CPU clocks from 1.5 to 4.8 GHz. The CPU supports vPro and ECC memory but no CPU overclocking.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

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.

88.2%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
