New Lenovo ThinkPad T15p G2: Better FHD screen & GeForce GTX 1650
Lenovo is releasing a second generation of the Lenovo ThinkPad T15p, which is mostly a straightforward CPU update. There are a few additional features though. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 is probably the most important aside from the better FHD screens.

In the wider portfolio of Lenovo ThinkPad business laptops, the ThinkPad T15p occupies multiple roles. It is a faster version of the ThinkPad T series and an upgrade compared with the ThinkPad T15. At the same time it is a more affordable option compared to the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, and the workstation counterpart ThinkPad P15v (available from Amazon) is the most affordable full-performance workstation in the lineup.

We called the ThinkPad T15p G1 a "rustic workhorse. Two interesting specifications: Lenovo used the outdated Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, and there also was no "good" FHD display. If someone wanted a better screen in the T15p, the only option was the 4K LCD.

These are areas where the ThinkPad T15p G2 is an improvement. It is being released without a formal announcement and it is an update of the first models - accordingly, the design remains unchanged.

Most of the changes happen on the inside. Intel Comet Lake is being replaced with Intel Tiger Lake. Together with the platform upgrade, Thunderbolt 4 and NVMe PCIe 4.0 for the SSD are being introduced. At the same time, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 replaces the older Pascal GPU.

While the graphics are becoming faster, the screen is becoming better; at least for some variants of the T15p 2021. Lenovo is finally going to offer a better FHD screen with up to 300 cd/m² and 72 % NTSC / 100 % sRGB. Unfortunately, Lenovo is still going to offer inferior FHD screens as well, so buyers have to be on the lookout for that.

The Lenovo ThinkPad T15p G2 and the ThinkPad P15v G2 with Quadro GPUs are seemingly coming out soon, as both are already listed in the Lenovo PSREF database.

I was an ardent reader of Notebookcheck’s laptop reviews even back in school. After writing reviews as a hobby, I then joined Notebookcheck in 2016 and have worked on device reviews and news articles ever since then. My personal interest lies more with laptops than smartphones, with business laptops being the most interesting category for me. Technology should make our lives and work easier and good laptops are an essential tool for that to happen. This is why laptop reviews are not just my work but are also my passion.
