Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon G12 laptop review: First major refresh in three years

Now with Core Ultra and 120 Hz OLED. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon gets a major facelift this year to accompany the new Meteor Lake-H CPU and OLED panel with double the refresh rate of the previous generation. It's the best Carbon yet, but some performance problems remain unsolved.

After utilizing the same chassis design from the ThinkPad X1 Carbon G9 to the X1 Carbon G11, Lenovo has finally introduced a full-on refresh for this year's ThinkPad X1 Carbon G12. The launch of the new model coincides with the launch of Intel's new Meteor Lake-H platform and so users are getting the latest Core Ultra processors as well.

Our test unit has been configured with the Core Ultra 7 155H CPU, integrated Arc 8 GPU, 32 GB of LPDDR5x 6400 MHz RAM, and a non-touch 1800p OLED display for approximately $2700 USD. Lesser SKUs are available with 16 GB of RAM and lower resolution IPS panels, but all options at the moment include the same processor.

Alternatives to the ThinkPad X1 Carbon G12 include other business-oriented 14-inch subnotebooks like the Dell Latitude 7440, HP EliteBook 1040 series, Asus ExpertBook series, or the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2.

Case — Refined And Lighter Than Before

The new chassis introduces several visual changes from the outgoing design. Firstly, the webcam portion has been redesigned with a small glossy bar on the outer lid to allow for a larger webcam sensor and to act as a grip for opening the lid. Secondly, the bottom and top bezels are now even thinner than before for a smaller footprint. Thirdly, the stereo speakers have been relocated to be hidden underneath the keyboard requiring no dedicated speaker grilles. And lastly, additional tactile markings have been added to select keys on the keyboard to aid users who may be visually impaired.

Additional changes can be seen on the clickpad and bottom panel as well, but overall chassis rigidity and texture remain the same as before for that familiar ThinkPad X1 Carbon feel. Keep in mind that Gorilla Glass protection is not available on non-touch SKUs and so the display is more prone to damage or twisting than say the display on the Spectre x360 14.

As if the X1 Carbon G11 wasn't light enough already, the new G12 is even lighter by about 100 grams to be one of the lightest 14-inch subnotebooks you can buy. The LG Gram 14 is still lighter at under 1 kg, but that model currently ships with slower Core U options only. Our Lenovo also manages to be smaller than many of its competitors including the Latitude 7440 and EliteBook 1040.

Connectivity

All ports from the G11 have returned for G12 albeit rearranged. The ports are packed rather tightly especially along the left edge. Charging must also be done via the left edge whereas the Razer Blade 14 design includes USB-C ports on both sides of the laptop for more freedom of charging.

An integrated SD card reader continues to be absent, but that is a trend we're also seeing on the latest Latitude 7440 and HP Dragonfly models.

Webcam

The webcam sensor remains at 2 MP with no higher resolution options despite the chassis changes. Many HP systems like the recent Spectre x360 14 offer 5 MP options.

Both IR and a physical shutter come standard for privacy.

Accessories And Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the paperwork and AC adapter. Disappointingly, only a one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies if purchased in the US instead of the base three-year warranty on some ThinkPad T options.

Input Devices — Small But Comfortable

Keyboard

The ThinkPad keyboard is so iconic that Lenovo tends to make just minor adjustments between chassis redesigns. In this case, Lenovo has removed the dedicated PrtSc button along the bottom on the G11 keyboard for a fingerprint reader instead. The PrtSc button is now a part of the F9 button where the videoconferencing hotkeys have also been dropped in favor of Microsoft Snippet Tool and Phone Link. Otherwise, the typing experience should be crisp and familiar to existing ThinkPad owners.

Touchpad

The clickpad is now slightly larger than before at 12 x 5.7 cm. It can still feel cramped especially when making vertical cursor movements on the tall 16:10 screen, but the dedicated tactile buttons make the experience a lot less painful.

Display

Slight graininess from the OLED panel
Slight graininess from the OLED panel

New to the G12 this year is a 120 Hz display whereas the G11 was limited to 60 Hz. The faster refresh rate is greatly appreciated as it improves UI responsiveness. Otherwise, the Samsung OLED panel, DCI-P3 colors, and 1800p resolution remain the same as before. The new panel unfortunately does not support adaptive sync or Windows VRR which would have improved battery life.

Note that the screen is set to 60 Hz by default and so users must manually enable 120 Hz mode through the Advanced display settings.

Additional display options are available depending on the configuration:

  • 1920 x 1200, IPS, 400 nits, 100% sRGB, Glossy, Touchscreen, 60 Hz
  • 1920 x 1200, IPS, 400 nits, 100% sRGB, matte, Touchscreen, 60 Hz

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
0.76 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.41 ms rise
↘ 0.35 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % 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 detected 240.3 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 240.3 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 240.3 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17900 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Pulse-width modulation or flickering is present on all brightness levels as is typical of most OLED panels. We're able to detect a constant frequency of 240 Hz from 0 to 100 percent brightness.

The 400-nit brightness is about average for high-end subnotebooks for average outdoor visibility. Brighter conditions or direct sunlight will wash onscreen colors in spite of the wide OLED viewing angles. Certain models from HP offer 1000-nit display options which continue to be absent on Lenovo ThinkPads.

Processor — Performance Consistency Issues

The Core Ultra 7 series effectively replaces the older Core P series. Raw multi-thread performance from our Core Ultra 7 155H is only about 5 to 15 percent faster than the Core i7-1370P in the outgoing X1 Carbon G11 model, but the gap becomes significantly wider when accounting for throttling or when compared to configurations running on Core U-series CPUs. Even so, performance is roughly comparable to the Ryzen 7 7840U.

While upfront performance is good, the processor suffers from throttling when stressed for long periods similar to what we observed on the X1 Carbon G11. When running CineBench R15 xT in a loop, for example, the initial score of 2297 points would remain relatively steady at first before falling steeply to 1444 points halfway into the stress test for a deficit of 37 percent. Performance would recover thereafter at a very slow pace before steadily falling again which is an unusual behavior not seen on most other laptops. Repeating the stress test would not result in any major differences to confirm our findings. High Turbo Boost sustainability is never expected from thin and lightweight laptops like the X1 Carbon, but performance consistency should still be a target.

At the very least, the undesirable throttling behavior is not as steep as what we recorded on the 2023 X1 Carbon G11 with the Core i7-1370P as shown by the graph below.

Stress Test

CPU clock rates would cycle when under stress instead of remaining steady. When running Prime95, for example, the CPU would boost to 3 GHz, 105 C (!), and 54 W for only a couple of seconds before dropping to 2.2 GHz and eventually cycling between 1.5 and 2.1 GHz, 82 to 96 C, and 24 to 35 W. This behavior relates to the unsteady CineBench results above and it contrasts the Ryzen 7 PRO 7840U in the ThinkPad P14s which would hold steadier clock rates when subjected to the same Prime95 test.

Similar results can be observed when running Witcher 3 to represent more real-world demanding loads. In this scenario, the GPU would run at 2250 MHz but with occasional drops to 1600 MHz for seemingly no reason. Frame rates would become more unsteady as a result. Overall core temperature would be quite warm in the 80 to 95 C range compared to 65 to 80 C on the slightly thicker Latitude 7440.

System Performance

PCMark results are excellent with scores that are consistently higher than what we recorded on the older ThinkPad X1 Carbon G11. The largest notable gain can be seen in the Digital Content Creation subtest where the uptick in GPU performance between generations can be felt the most.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon shows DPC issues when opening multiple browser tabs of our homepage. 4K video playback at 60 FPS is otherwise perfect with no dropped frames recorded unlike what we observed on some recent AMD-powered Hawk Point models.

Storage Devices

Our unit ships with a 1 TB Kioxia XG8 instead of the WD PC SN810 on last year's version. The new drive does not throttle nearly as much as what we observed on the X1 Carbon G11 as shown by the comparison graph below; transfer rates would fall from ~6900 MB/s to ~6000 MB/s after just a few minutes compared to ~2300 MB/s on the X1 Carbon G11.
