Lenovo ThinkPad P73 Review - Mobile Workstation with Core i9, RTX 4000 and 4K

Full performance after BIOS updates. The ThinkPad P73 has been around for a while, but Lenovo had to deliver some BIOS updates before the device could use the full potential of its components. Neither Intel, nor Nvidia, introduced major updates in the last 18 months, so the P73 is still up to date in the beginning of 2021.
Andreas Osthoff 👁 (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 ...

The ThinkPad P73 is Lenovo's biggest mobile workstation, but it struggled with the performance. Especially the powerful Nvidia Quadro RTX GPUs did not utilize their full potential. Lenovo had to launch some BIOS updates to improve the situation. Lenovo has already launched the successor ThinkPad P17 by now, bit the components are still pretty much the same. You now get Intel 10th generation chips, which do not offer any noticeable performance gains, and even the identical Nvidia Quadro GPUs. With the P73 equipped with a Core i9 and the RTX 4000, we once again want to check whether the performance now meets the expectations. Please see our comprehensive review of the ThinkPad P73 with the RTX 3000 for more information on the case, ports, input devices, and the speakers:

Display - 4K panel with drawbacks

Our test unit is equipped with the matte 4K panel. We cannot confirm the advertised brightness of 400 nits at any measuring spot. Lenovo still uses 16:9 panels for the successor ThinkPad P17, but the brightness of the 4K screen is now rated at around 500 nits.

The subjective picture impression is decent, but not great. Bright surfaces look a bit grainy and the contrast ratio is lower than 1000:1 due to the high black value (0.38 cd/m²). This panel from AU Optronics (B173ZAN01.0) does not use PWM. Our test unit suffers from clearly visible backlight bleeding, especially at the lower edge, which is also noticeable on dark surfaces in everyday scenarios.

* ... smaller is better

We use the professional CalMAN software in combination with the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer for the display analysis. The factory calibration is not great, because both the grayscale as well as the colors show significant deviations from the AdobeRGB reference. The grayscale also shows a slight color cast towards red. Contrary to the recently reviewed ThinkPad P15s with the 4K screen, the P73 does not support pre-installed color profiles to switch the between color spaces.

The situation is much better after our calibration (the profile can be downloaded for free in the box above), and both the grayscale as well as the color deviations are below the important mark of 3. The wide AdobeRGB color gamut is almost covered completely (88 %), which means the calibrated panel is suited for picture/video editing.

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
26.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 12.4 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. » 53 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise
↘ 22 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. » 64 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.1 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14793 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

You can only use the P73 comfortable outdoors when you can avoid reflections from light sources and brighter environments. The large panel is matte, but it could have been much brighter. The viewing angle stability of the IPS panel is good.

Performance - ThinkPad P73 with Core i9 and RTX4000

Processor - Intel Core i9-9880H

The Core i9-9880H (Coffee Lake-H) has 8 cores (16 threads) and can reach up to 4.8 GHz (1 or 2 cores) or up to 4.1 GHz on all eight cores, respectively. As expected for a large mobile workstation, Lenovo implements generous TDP limitations at 70/107 Watts. 

We can still not see the maximum clock of 4.1 GHz on all cores in the benchmarks, but "only" 8x 3.8 GHz (102 W) and then 8x 3.1 GHz under sustained workloads. This value can be maintained and the overall performance in the comparison group is good, even though current mobile workstations still waive AMD's CPU options.

The TDP limitations are a bit lower on battery power (51/60 W), so the performance drops by around 20 %.

GPU Performance - Quadro RTX 4000 with 8 GB VRAM

GPU-Z Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000
GPU-Z Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000

Lenovo does not use the integrated graphics adapter of the processor. Instead, the dedicated Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000 takes care of the graphics calculations all the time. The RTX 4000 has been around since-mid 2019, but it is still a high-end GPU.

A couple of BIOS updates were necessary, but the P73 can now utilize the full potential of the RTX 4000 and the results are also slightly better than the average values for other RTX 4000 devices in our database. As expected, the performance is pretty much right in the middle between the RTX 3000 and the RTX 5000, although there can be differences depending on the individual versions. This is not only the case for the 3DMark tests, but also professional scenarios that we test with SPECviewperf.

We also checked the performance under sustained workloads with the demanding 3DMark Time Spy stress test, and the P73 passed the test (98.3 %). The performance is, however, significantly lower on battery power, and you have to expect a deficit of ~70 %.

Gaming Performance

The performance of the Quadro RTX 4000 is roughly comparable with a GeForce RTX 2070 or 2080 Max-Q. The Quadro drivers work really well with games for the last couple of years, only brand-new titles might show a warning message for the drivers (but the games usually still run). We did not experience any problems and the gaming performance is, as expected, very good. Many games can be played in the native 4K resolution and maximum details; only very demanding titles require a reduction of the resolution or the settings.

Emissions - Quiet fans

System Noise

The fans stay pretty quiet under load at around 40 dB(A) when you consider the performance. The murmur of the fans is hardly annoying or high-pitched. In practice, you can notice the lack of the iGPU, because one of the fans often starts spinning when you stress the Nvidia GPU a bit, which would not be the case with an efficient iGPU.

The fans were quieter in general before the BIOS updates, but this obviously affected the performance. We did not notice any electronic sounds or coil whine during our review period.

Temperature

Lenovo does a good job with the surface temperatures, because you could still put the device on your lap during the stress test (even though this is improbable due to the dimensions of the notebook). It is interesting that the top left corner on top of the base unit is quite a bit warmer at almost 50 °C, but the hotspot is located above the keyboard, so there are no limitations. The rear portion of the notebook also warms up noticeably while idling, which is once again caused by the lack of the iGPU.

Our stress test shows that the performance of the graphics cards is stable, even in combined workload scenarios. The CPU performance, however, is reduced, and the 70 W we saw during CPU load only cannot be maintained. A look at the following diagram shows the CPU consumption drops to around 42 W and 8x ~2.2 GHz after a few minutes. There are no performance limitations immediately after the stress test.

Energy Management - Lack of iGPU hurts battery runtime

Power Consumption

Bulky 230W PSU
Bulky 230W PSU

We have already mentioned the deactivated iGPU of the processor. The constant utilization of the dedicated Quadro GPU in combination with the 4K panel increases the power consumption in idle scenarios noticeably. Depending on the brightness level, we can measure between 21-36 W, and therefore nearly twice as much as the previous review unit of the ThinkPad P73.

The maximum consumption is around 215 W, but this value will level off at around 170 W. This means the provided 230 W power adapter is completely sufficient. by the way, it is not possible to charge the device via USB-C.

Battery Runtime - P73 with 99 Wh battery

Lenovo integrates a large 99 Wh battery, but the runtimes are still pretty short due to the high power consumption. It is obviously questionable how often you will really use such a big device like the P73 without a power a adapter. You can expect between 3-4 hours in practice depending on the brightness, which should be sufficient for the many of meetings. If you really stress the device, the battery will last little more than 70 minutes.

In review: Lenovo ThinkPad P73. Test model courtesy of Lenovo Germany.

The performance utilization was the biggest drawback in our initial review of the ThinkPad P73. It took a couple of months and a number of BIOS updates, but the performance of the dedicated Quadro graphics card is now on the expected level. 

The new ThinkPad P17 does not offer any noticeable improvements in terms of raw component power, so the performance of the P73 is actually still competitive. The Core i9 processor benefits from the high TDP limits and offers stable performance, just like the Quadro RTX 4000 from Nvidia. No problems here.

Lenovo managed to improve the performance utilization of the components thanks to several BIOS updates. Equipped with the Core i9 (9th generation) and the Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000, the ThinkPad P73 is still a very competitive mobile workstation.

We are not completely convinced by the 4K panel. The subjective picture quality is good in general, but our review unit suffered from visible backlight bleeding and the factory calibration is not great, either. The brightness is also lower than advertised. Lenovo wants to address the latter with the successor ThinkPad P17, but we obviously still have to test that.
