88.8% Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 1 Laptop Review: The Intel model is the worse choice | Notebookcheck
Last year’s Lenovo ThinkPad T490s won our "Editor’s Choice Award“. The successor, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s with Comet Lake-based Intel CPUs is just as good. However, because there is a more attractive option with an AMD chip, the Intel-based ThinkPad T14s Gen 1 is not going to sell as well. Read our review to learn why.

90.5% Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Review: Business laptop is better with AMD | Notebookcheck
The ThinkPad T14s with the AMD Renoir processor offers much more performance and is also less expensive than the Intel version. But what about the power consumption and the battery runtime? We have a closer look at the differences of the two models.
Lenovo ThinkPad T14s review – high-performance processors and a Privacy Guard that blocks unwanted eyes
Source: Laptop Media English
Considering the price of the laptop, and the performance it offers, it is probably one of the best business laptops for high-workload scenarios. Not only does it offer supreme power, but it also has quite a lot of goodies in terms of security. You get a dedicated TPM chip onboard, the AMD Memory Guard technology, dual biometric authentication (thanks to the IR face recognition, and the fingerprint reader, both of which work extremely well).

Lenovo’s ThinkPad T-lineup is a great thin business laptop and with the addition of AMD’s Ryzen PRO chipsets, businesses looking to skimp a few pennies are now being served options that are almost $500 less expensive than its Dell competitor.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad T14s
Source: PC Mag English
The ThinkPad T14s flirts with a four-and-a-half-star rating and an Editors' Choice nod, missing those marks mainly due to Lenovo's wrongheaded decision to deny AMD customers a 4K screen option (and the fact that we like to see a Thunderbolt 3 port in an over-$1,000 notebook). But if you're content with a 1080p display, the T14s is a sensational business laptop—lighter, faster, and $493 cheaper as tested than the Dell Latitude 7410 (though that comparison is a bit flawed, since the Dell has a gorgeous 4K display), and a genuine, more affordable alternative to the super-stellar ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Its Ryzen 7 Pro CPU is a monster, delivering near-mobile-workstation levels of raw multithreaded performance, and its engineering is faultless.

Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Review - Intel vs AMD
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The 2.8 lb / 1.27 kg ThinkPad T14s is the more affordable counterpart to the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. It has a 12.95mm matte black magnesium alloy shell, the usual excellent ThinkPad keyboard and is available with a variety of displays. You can get it with AMD Ryzen 5 Pro (6-core) and Ryzen 7 Pro (8-core) CPUs for a significant performance boost, or with Intel 10th gen Comet Lake 4-core CPUs for Thunderbolt 3 support. The laptop has ample ports, optional 4G LTE WWAN, a fingerprint scanner, Windows Hello IR camera and strong battery life.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad T14s review: AMD's Ryzen 7 PRO 4750U kills it
Source: Neowin English
If only it came with a UHD display. Seriously, I get that there are some advantages to choosing Intel, and others to choosing AMD. In terms of what the platform offers, I think there are more advantages from AMD, although you do get Thunderbolt from Intel. What I don't care for is OEMs creating their own value propositions for Intel by only offering certain configurations with an Intel processor. It's not cool.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad T14s review (gen1, 2020) – AMD Ryzen business laptop
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This 2020 ThinkPad T14s is a refreshed iteration of last year's ThinkPad T490, and that's fine by me. The competent and efficient AMD Ryzen Pro hardware implementation is what primarily puts it on the map for potential buyers looking for solid performance in a compact chassis, and while this delivers and outmatches the Intel-based alternatives out there, it's not without its quirks, as explained in the detailed review down-below.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


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

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock of up to 1600 MHz.

AMD Vega 6: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 6 CUs (= 384 shaders) and a clock of up to 1.500 MHz.

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


Intel Comet Lake:

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

AMD Renoir (Ryzen 4000 APU):

R7 PRO 4750U: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 2 cores clocked at 1.7 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 7 CUs clocked at up to 1600 MHz. The PRO version of Renoir is offering additional security and management features.

R5 PRO 4650U: Mobile Hexa-Core APU using six Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.1 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1500 MHz. The PRO version of Renoir is offering additional security and management features.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.254 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.3 kg:


84.91%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
