Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G2 Laptop Review: Improved with 165 Hz screen & Nvidia RTX 2000 Ada

Faster and Faster. The second generation of the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 builds upon the strengths of the first model. The ThinkPad P16 G2 adds a fast 165 Hz screen and the Nvidia RTX 2000 Ada as well as Intel Raptor Lake HX into the mix, making it a strong contender in the workstation segment.

The most powerful Lenovo ThinkPad laptop - that title always goes to the current ThinkPad P series model. Specifically, the classic, thick P series, which used to be P15 G2 and P17 G2 but has since been condensed into the Lenovo ThinkPad P16. The most recent model of this product line is the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 Gen 2, today's review device.

But what even is a classic workstation? Workstation laptops are used for various professional use cases, with CAD being among the most important. The classic workstations put performance above everything else, which means they are on of the few laptop series that did not undergo the "ultrabook" metamorphosis. As such, classic workstations like the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G2 are both thick and heavy.

Case: Grey giant with classic construction

The casing of the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 Gen 2 remains unchanged compared to the first generation of the ThinkPad P16. The thickest current ThinkPad laptop uses a distinct design from most other models, opting for a two-tone colorscheme (Storm Grey screen cover and keyboard deck, black screen bezel and bottom cover) as well as a different form language - the bottom cover is rounded off, not squared like with other ThinkPads. Unlike most modern ThinkPads, this one uses the classic top-base hinge design and sports rather big bezels, even if they are already smaller than they used to be on older P series.

In terms of materials, the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G2 sticks largely with what has always worked for ThinkPads: Metal and plastics combined. The outer hull of the bottom cover is plastic-made, strengthened with a traditional ThinkPad magnesium structure frame design - the roll cage. The screen cover is aluminum with some additional magnesium strengthening. This device feels extremely robust and is the closest to the classic ThinkPads of old as you can get today in terms of construction. There are almost no weak points and the chassis has little give, with the palmrest area above the smartcard reader on the right side of the palmrest as the only exception.

The hinges are perfect. They prevent wobble, allow for an opening angle of more than 180 degrees and the screen can even be opened with one hand. 

Its pretty clear, the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 Gen 2 is the biggest and heaviest workstation in the comparison. The closest fit in specs and positioning, the HP ZBook Fury 16 G10, weighs 400 g less and is slightly smaller and thinner.

Connectivity: Plenty of ports on ThinkPad P16 G2

Port selection and placement remains identical to the preceding Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G1. Both are very good, with ports on all sides and both legacy ports and three USB C ports, two of which support Thunderbolt 4. One thing that we sorely miss is RJ45-Ethernet, a feature that ThinkPad workstations used to have with the ThinkPad P15 G2 and ThinkPad P17 G2 sporting 2.5 GBit Ethernet.

SD Card Reader

The full-sized SD card reader disappoints in our testing with the AV Pro microSD 128 GB V60 reference card. The transfer speeds are average to below average. Also, SD cards stick out.

Communication

While the Intel AX211 WiFi card with integrated Bluetooth 5.3 delivers great transfer speeds when it comes to downloading data, uploading is much slower. There were no drops in speed and the connection was very stable.

WWAN in the form of 4G/LTE is available for the ThinkPad P16 G2, our review device was not equipped with it. It is however upgradable.

Webcam

The webcam is one area where it is apparent that the ThinkPad P16 Gen 2 is not among the newest ThinkPad designs. This model is limited to a 1080p webcam. The images are OK for video conferencing, but certainly worse than the 5 or 8 MPix cameras on some newer laptop models.

Security

As an enterprise device, the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G2 has a plethora of security options. For starters, it has a dedicated TPM 2.0 security chip. On the outside, there is a Smartcard reader, which is very useful for big corporations. The ThinkPad workstation has a Kensington lock slot for theft-protection, and a Fingerprint reader as well as a Infrared camera for secure log-in with Windows Hello.

Accessories

Apart from the 170 W charger with the proprietary Slim tip plug, there are no accessories in the box.

Maintenance

Maintenance works pretty much the same way as it did for the ThinkPad P16 G1: Half of the RAM slots and one of the SSD bays are located beneath the small bottom service door. The rest is beneath the user replaceable keyboard, where the open M.2 slot for the optional WWAN card is also located. Both steps are easy, and a removable keyboard is not something most laptops have these days, even in the workstation sector. Accessing the cooling system and the internal battery is a more involved affair, as the entire bottom cover has to be removed, which is secured by many screws. But this is also doable.

Lenovo provides a repair manual called the Hardware Maintenance Manual to guide the users through the repair process.

Warranty

This German unit of the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 G2 that we review has a warranty of 36 months with included on-site service and Premier support. The battery has a warranty of 12 months. Internationally, this device gets 36 months of warranty, but without on-site and only bring-in service.

Input Devices: Traditional strength of Lenovo's ThinkPad series

Keyboard

The grey, subtly sculpted ThinkPad keys with 1.5 mm of key travel offer a great typing experience. Typing on this keyboard feels both precise and smooth, while the keyboard also offers a nice resistance. The keys are backlit with two levels of brightness for the blue-white LEDs.

In terms of the keyboard layout, the ThinkPad P16 G2 has the same familiar layout as the other 16 inch ThinkPads. It includes a dedicated numblock at the right side, which does mean that the overall keyboard is shifted to the left. Of course, if you need a numpad, this is a wothwhile sacrifice. As usual with ThinkPad laptops, the layout is very good, with grouped F keys and dedicated navigation buttons.

Touchpad

The smooth plastic touchpad has the same size as on the preceding ThinkPad P16. Its a traditional mechanical clickpad that can only be pressed in the lower half of the touchpad-area. It works well, with the click having a high-quality feel to it and the surface allowing for smooth finger gliding - we do wonder though why Lenovo feels the need to save money by going to a plastic surface instead of higher quality glass. Certainly, on such an expensive machine, this should not be a budget problem for the customers that Lenovo targets.

In addition to the touchpad, the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 Gen 2 of course also sports the red TrackPoint pointing-stick. The staple of the ThinkPad brand can be used to control the mouse and works very precisely and can beat the touchpad in certain tasks - usage with gloves, using the laptop in tight spaces like airplanes or trains as well as simple drag and drop operations. The dedicated, flat TrackPoint buttons above the touchpad are to be used with the pointing stick, with the middle mouse key for scrolling.

As usual for ThinkPads, Lenovo offers a number of different screen options for the P16 G2. All of them are 16 inch 16:10 panels:

  • WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200), IPS, 300 cd/m², 100 % sRGB, matte
  • WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200), IPS, 400 cd/m², 100 % sRGB, matte
  • 2.5K/WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600), IPS, 500 cd/m², 100 % sRGB, matte, 165 Hz
  • 4K/WQUXGA (3,840 x 2,400), IPS, 800 cd/m², 100 % DCI-P3, matte, HDR
  • 4K/WQUXGA (3,840 x 2,400), OLED, 400 cd/m², 100 % DCI-P3, semi-glossy, HDR, multi-touch, digitizer pen

The screen we have in our review device is probably going to be the most popular screen choice for consumers, should they buy the ThinkPad P16 G2 - except for photographers, who may need the the wide color gamut of the 4K screens. The screen delivers the promised 500 cd/m², the average maximum brightness sits at 510 cd/m². This makes the screen competitive even with the WQUXGA screen of the HP ZBook Fury 16 G10. It certainly is much brighter than the WQHD display of the HP ZBook Power 15 G10.

This panel is fairly fast for an IPS screen. While the response times can not compete with OLED screens, they are better than many other IPS panels. Of course, the fast refresh rate of 165 Hz helps. This screen is certainly usable for gaming and other applications that benefit from a fast refresh rate.

Ex-factory, the display is a bit too warm, which is most visible in the Calman Greyscale measurements. After a calibration with the X-Rite i1Pro 3 and X-Rite i1Profiler, the Colorchecker deltaE value, which describes the average deviation of the colors from the ideal, decreases from 2.6 to 2.3. Not a huge difference, but still a noticeable one. The color profile we created is available for download for free in the grey box above.

Lenovo says the screen covers 100 % of the sRGB gamut, we measure a 99.2 % coverage. This makes the display usable for simple photo and video editing.

Out of the office, the screen is well usable, thanks to the high bightness of above 500 cd/m² and matte surface.

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
10.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.8 ms rise
↘ 4.3 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
12.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 61 ms rise
↘ 6.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 21 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance: Raptor Lake HX and Ada Lovelace makes for strong package

There is a plethora of hardware options for the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 Gen 2. Five Intel Core processors are on offer: the i5-13600HX, the i7-13700HX, the i7-13850HX, the i9-13950HX and the i9-13980HX. There are even more GPU options, as Lenovo puts in either the Nvidia RTX A1000, the RTX 2000 Ada, the RTX 3500 Ada, the RTX 4000 Ada and RTX 5000 Ada. If no dedicated GPU is needed, its is also possible to buy the ThinkPad laptop just with an Intel GPU.

RAM can go up to monstrous 192 GB of DDR5-4000/3600 memory, or up to 128 GB of ECC RAM. This is possible thanks to the four SO-DIMM slots, which can take in 48 GB modules. Lenovo is less generous when it comes to the storage, as there are just two M.2 2280 slots for up to 8 TB. This is half of what the competition in form of the HP ZBook Fury 16 G10 offers.

Testing Conditions

Lenovo uses the integrated Windows power settings to regulate the performance modes of the ThinkPad workstation. There are three different modes that influence the power limits. The power limit 1 (PL1) describes the long term, sustained performance, while the power limit 2 sets the boundary for short term boost performance:

  • Best battery life: PL1 30 W / PL2 67 W
  • Balanced: PL1 80 W / PL2 100 W
  • Best performance: PL1 80 W / PL2 100 W

Processor

The Intel Core i7-13700HX is the basic i7-CPU of the Raptor-Lake-HX series. It combines eight small E cores (1.5 to 3.7 GHz) with eight big P cores (2.1 to 5 GHz) for a total of 16 cores and 24 threads thanks to hyperthreading on the P cores. This CPU is rated for a typical power consumption of 55 W, as usual for the HX55 series, the most powerful of Intel's laptop CPU series. It does not support ECC RAM. For benchmark comparisons with other processors, we provide our CPU benchmark list.

While the CPU performance of the Lenovo ThinkPad P16 Gen 2 is impressive and roughly 10 percent better compared with the preceding ThinkPad P16 G1, the HP ZBook Fury 16 G10 wins this category overall pretty clearly. However, the ZBook has a Core i9 with eight E cores more, which should account for the difference in multicore performance.

Running on battery, the CPU is limited to 45 W. Running the Cinebench R23 Multicore test without a connected charger results in a score of 11318 points, a performance decrease of roughly 45 percent.

DPC Latency

The system has some trouble when it comes to DPC latency sensitive work. Lenovo could fix those issues at any point though with a driver and/or BIOS update.

Storage Devices

Lenovo's ThinkPad P16 Gen 2 contains a 1 TB SSD made by SK Hynix. It is a fast M.2 2280 drive connected via NVMe PCIe Gen 4. While the SSD lags behind the competition in the benchmarks, the difference is not substantial. 

What is substantial: There are only two M.2 2280 slots, with one free ex-factory. While this is better than most laptops, HP's ZBook Fury 16 G10 has four M.2 2280 bays, outclassing the ThinkPad in terms of storage.
