The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro in our test - Not only the display is exciting
Lenovo's Legion series has only been in existence for the last four years. With the new Legion 5 Pro, the manufacturer succeeds in unifying its slightly edgy designs with the visuals of current gaming laptops. Inside the case made from aluminum and plastic, the AMD Ryzen 7 and the Nvidia GeForce 3070 deliver more than sufficient performance to bring current games to the display smoothly in full resolution.
Not only is the matte 165-Hz IPS display in the 16:10 format with a QHD resolution very bright and colorful, but it also offers slightly more screen real estate in a laptop of the same size than the 16:9 competitors. The display of the gaming laptop can even be read easily in direct sunlight. In some circumstances, the maximum brightness of 522 cd/m² can almost become uncomfortable for the eyes.
At 32 GB and 1 TB respectively, the working memory and storage are sized generously. In addition, a free M.2 slot also offers some expansion options. You don't need any special tools to get access to the insides of the laptop. Lenovo has even placed a hidden message that waits to be discovered inside the laptop.
In our test, the benchmark results of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H in the Legion 5 Pro surprised us. In several tests, the processor was even able to surpass its larger sibling, the Ryzen 9 5900HX in the comparison devices. It shows here that Lenovo did everything right in terms of the cooling, allowing the processor to fully develop its performance potential.
