IIn our review, the Lenovo ThinkPad P73 ran surprisingly quiet, as the fans were mostly turned off. While the low noise emission is great, this resulted in higher temperatures – which negatively impacted the GPU performance.

If there is one thing you probably do not expect of a 17.3 inch workstation, it is that it runs quiet most of the time. The powerful components need to be cooled.

The Lenovo workstation ThinkPad P73 stays pretty quiet, despite containing the Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000 and a hexa core CPU from Intel. Even under load, the level of noise does not exceed 33 dB(a). That is not much for a mobile workstation.

As positive as the low noise emission is: The heat management suffers for it. In the stress test, the Lenovo ThinkPad P73 exceeds the 50 degrees Celsius mark at the bottom of the system. This is already a problem, but for workstation customers, the limitation of the GPU performance is probably worse. In the Witcher 3 loop, the GPU performance drops considerably towards the end.

In the end, the Lenovo ThinkPad P73 just reaches 87 % in our comprehensive review. That is good, but not very good. For a Lenovo notebook that costs more than €3,000 that is already a disappointment.

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.
