ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6 Review: Lenovo's best Business Convertible

Matte 16:10 Touchscreen. The new ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6 gets a major update and wants to convince customers with a new chassis, faster processor and a matte 16:10 touchscreen. Update: M.2 2242 SSD does not fit into the WWAN slot
Andreas Osthoff 👁 (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 ...

Until recently, the ThinkPad x1 Yoga was the flagship business convertible from Lenovo and the counterpart to the regular clamshell model ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Now we also have the even more expensive ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga with very slim chassis as well as a 3:2 touchscreen. Our review of the Titanium Yoga did, however, reveal some issues.

The new ThinkPad X1 Yoga G6 is a big update with a new chassis, faster processor, and the return of a 16:10 touchscreen, which is also matte. We want to find out if the X1 Yoga G6 might actually be a better overall package. Our test unit is an education model with a matte Full-HD touchscreen, i7 CPU, 32 GB RAM, and a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD for 1849 Euros (without Windows). A similar model for regular customers is available for about 500 Euros more in Lenovo's online store.

Case - Lenovo uses Aluminum

Lenovo uses a completely redesigned aluminum chassis for the X1 Yoga G6 in the color Strom Grey, so it looks quite different from typical ThinkPads in black. Compared to the previous model, where the case was also dark grey, the keyboard is not black anymore. The only contrast is therefore the back display frame as well as some red elements (TrackPoint, ThinkPad logo).

The quality impression is very high: The aluminum surfaces are cool to touch and you get brushed aluminum at the sides. Our test unit is does not show any build quality issues, which was a problem on the previously reviewed X1 Titanium Yoga. The stability is also very good, because you can only slightly dent the middle section of the base unit, and there are no creaking noises. The lid is not worse; it is also very sturdy and we cannot provoke picture distortions, even with a lot of pressure. We also noticed that the grey surfaces are not as prone to fingerprints compared to black ThinkPads.

The X1 Yoga G6 is too heavy if you want to use it as a tablet for longer periods.
The X1 Yoga G6 is too heavy if you want to use it as a tablet for longer periods.

The two hinges are very well adjusted, and this is once again a big advantage over the X1 Titanium Yoga. There is no bouncing of the screen and the hinges can keep the lid securely in position, even at small angles. It is a convertible, so you can obviously fold the display back. However, the device is a bit heavy at 1.4 kg for longer usage as a tablet. You can only hold it comfortable at the side of the hinges, but the fan exhaust is also located here, so you have to be a bit careful under load.

New ThinkPad models from the 2021 generation get the power button at the top of the base unit instead of the side, also on convertibles. The power button now also includes the fingerprint scanner, which works reliably.

Compared to last year's X1 Yoga, the new model is a bit narrower and thinner, but also a bit deeper. The weight has even increased a bit. Lenovo's X1 Titanium Yoga is about 200 grams lighter and 3 millimeters thinner, but even deeper in return.

Connectivity - ThinkPad with Thunderbolt 4

Lenovo changed the port layout a bit, because the Lenovo SideDock (CS18) connector was removed and you now get two Thunderbolt 4 ports at the left side instead. You still get two regular USB-A ports as well as a full-size HDMI output. This means you probably won't need any adapters most of the time.

Communication

The X1 Yoga G6 supports the fast 802.11ax standard (Wi-Fi 6) and the transfer rates are very good in our standardized test with the router Netgear Nighthawk RAX120. However, the latest T-series ThinkPads are already equipped with more modern Wi-Fi 6E modules.

You can get the X1 Yoga G6 with LTE (Nano-SIM) or 5G modules (eSIM), respectively, but the device is not WWAN-ready. You neither get the required antennas, nor the SIM slot, so it is not possible to upgrade a WWAN module afterwards.

There are no antennas for a WWAN module.

The Killer 2.5G Ethernet to USB-C Adapter enables seamless Ethernet connectivity with full 2.5 Gbps throughput. It also brings the best of Killer technologies including the much acclaimed Killer Prioritization Engine, GameFast, Extreme Mode, and Intelligence Engine that ensure your favorite game or app gets the bandwidth and priority it deserves. For laptops already equipped with a Killer wireless card, Killer DoubleShot Pro offers bandwidth doubling and fine-grained control over network packets passing through each connection.

In our testing, the Killer 2.5G Ethernet Adapter lived up to the advertised speeds consistently throughout testing. You can read more about performance comparison with other USB Ethernet Adapters in our article.
The Killer 2.5G Ethernet to USB-C adapter can be purchased on Amazon for US$ 49.99

Webcam

The webcam (with mechanical shutter) is still very poor in terms of quality with its 720ß sensor. Some upcoming ThinkPad models will be equipped with better webcams, but we would have liked to see a better webcam on a flagship model like the X1 Yoga G6.

Security

In addition to the fingerprint scanner, our test unit is also equipped with an IR camera for facial recognition with Windows Hello. There are also optional models with an awareness sensor, but our test unit did not have it.

Maintenance

The bottom cover is only secured with a couple of Philips screws and is easy to remove. However, your maintenance efforts are limited to the M.2 drive, the optional WWAN module, and the cleaning of the fans. Both the memory as well as the Wi-Fi module are soldered onto the mainboard.

Input Devices - ThinkPad with worse typing experience

Keyboard

The keyboard raised some concerns ahead of the launch, but you are still getting the same 1.5 mm key travel as before. However, the subjective typing experience is still a bit worse, because the keys are no flatter. We were able to compare the keyboard with the old ThinkPad X1 Carbon G7 and the typing experience is worse, but still better compared to the recently tested X1 Titanium Yoga with 1.35 mm travel. Compared to the X1 Titanium Yoga, the F keys are also higher and the background illumination only uses one color. All in all, the keyboard is still very good compared to other rivals, but we think the development is going in the wrong direction here.

The color of the keyboard is identical to the chassis, and a black unit might have been a more attractive decision, but this is obviously a matter of taste.

Touchpad & TrackPoint

Touchpad and TrackPoint
Touchpad and TrackPoint

Lenovo implements a wider touchpad (11.1 cm) and the handling is very good, as it was before. The smooth surface offers good gliding capabilities and gestures are well executed. The pad is also perfectly integrated into the base unit and the clicking sound are very muffled and leave a high-quality impression.

The TrackPad buttons cannot quite keep up in a direct comparison, because they can move slightly and the clicking noise is not that good. They still work very well and the TrackPoint is once again a very good alternative for cursor movements.

Touchscreen

You can obviously use the capacitive touchscreen for inputs as well. It reacts very reliably as you would expect from a modern touchscreen. The active input pen, which is included, can be stored inside the chassis (where it is also charged) also works well, but it is too small and thin for a really comfortable use. It is okay for occasional notes, but we recommend a bigger stylus if you want to use it more frequently.

Display - X1 Yoga with matte 16:10 panel

Subpixel layout
Subpixel layout
Minor backlight bleeding at the bottom edge
Minor backlight bleeding at the bottom edge

Lenovo offers four different 14-inch screens for the X1 Yoga G6, and all of them have the 16:10 aspect ratio. As before you get three glossy screens (FHD, FHD with ePrivacy, 4K) or the matte FHD touchscreen from our test unit (1920 x 1200 pixels). The resolution is a bit higher, but the panel is basically the familiar Low-Power model from LG Philips and we believe Lenovo will once again use panels from different suppliers.

The subjective picture impression is very good, but colors are not as brilliant as on glossy screens due to the matte surface. Bright surfaces also appear slightly grainy, but there are worse matte panels in this regard. We would definitely prefer the matte touchscreen for productive usage scenarios.

The average brightness is 404 cd/m² and the contrast ratio almost 1900:1. Backlight bleeding is not a big problem, either, but the response times are pretty slow and you will notice ghosting especially on dark surfaces. We did not detect any PWM flickering.

* ... smaller is better

We use the professional CalMAN software and the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer for the display analysis. The panel is already well calibrated out of the box and there is no visible color cast. Almost all colors are also within the important DeltaE2000 deviation of 3 compared to the sRGB reference color space, only 100% blue is an outlier.

Our own calibration improves the deviations a bit, but we cannot remove the outlier for blue. The sRGB gamut is almost covered completely, so all in all, you can still edit pictures and videos with this panel.

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
22 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.6 ms rise
↘ 14.4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 32 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
49.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22.8 ms rise
↘ 26.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 81 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.6 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 not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21061 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The matte surface is a big advantage outdoors and you can still use the convertibles very comfortably even on very sunny days. There is no criticism for the viewing angle stability, either.

Performance - Tiger Lake UP3

The X1 Yoga G6 is still a brand-new device and the drivers are not perfectly optimized yet. Out of the box, we noticed fluctuating performance figures and an update to BIOS version 1.24 improved the situation a lot. We therefore repeated all the measurements and benchmarks with the new BIOS version. However, there are still issues when you stress the CPU and GPU simultaneously (stress test, gaming), and we expect additional BIOS updates over the next couple of weeks. This should obviously not happen, but is unfortunately a pretty common problem over the last couple of years.

Processor - Core i7-1165G7

The Core i7-1165G7 is the "middle" version, you can also get two i5 chips as well as the i7-1185G7. The quad-core from the Tiger Lake generation can run at up to 4.7 GHz on one core or up to 4.1 GHz, respectively, on all four core simultaneously. Lenovo does not really restrict the CPU consumption at all with both Power Limits (PL1 & PL2) set at 64W. The cooling solution can obviously not maintain this level for long, but you will benefit from high clocks during short peak load scenarios.

Our Cinebench loop clearly shows that the processor quickly levels off at a consumption of ~28W (4x ~3.2 GHz). This is a good result and our test unit is pretty much on par with the HP Spectre x360 14, which uses the same processor. The old Comet Lake i7 with cores in the EliteBook x360 on the other hand is slightly beaten and the Tiger Lake UP4 chip in the X1 Titanium Yoga is about 35% slower.

The big advantage of the processor is the high single-core performance, which is also important in everyday situations. Intel still has an advantage over AMD in this regard, but Intel does not stand a chance in multi-core scenarios. However, there are basically no high-end business convertibles with AMD Ryzen chips yet.

The power consumption is quickly limited to 15W on battery power, so the multi-core performance is about 25% slower when you are not plugged in.

Considering the power limits, the i7-1165G7 makes the most sense, because the integrated graphics card is also faster compared to the i5 chips. The optional i7-1185G7 on the other will not have a big performance advantage.

Storage Devices

The X1 Yoga G6 offers a fast PCIe 4.0 interface and our test unit is equipped with a 1 TB Samsung PM9A1 (OEM version of the 980 Pro). The drive is extremely fast and can utilize the fast PCIe 4.0 interface.

We are currently still waiting for the arrival of a Samsung PM991 M.2-2242 SSD to test the compatibility and the performance of the empty M.2-2242 slot.

Update May 3rd: The Samsung PM991 does not fit into the WWAN-slot of the review unit. The slot is upside-down and the memory chips of the SSD faces towards the mainboard, but there is not enough room. You could force the drive into the slot, but you would bend the SSD when you secure it with the screw, so we did not even try it.

GPU Performance

GPU-Z Intel Xe Graphics G7
GPU-Z Intel Xe Graphics G7

The heavily improved integrated graphics adapter is probably the biggest advantage of the new Tiger Lake processors. The i7 CPU is equipped with the faster version of the Xe Graphics G7 iGPU with 96 EUs. The core clock (1300 MHz) is higher compared to the UP4 chip in the X1 Titanium Yoga and the benchmark scores are between 20-25% better. The old UHD Graphics 620 from the previous model is clearly beaten.

The integrated GPU is a good choice for a business laptop and the playback of high-resolution videos is no problem, either, thanks to the powerful video decoder.

The GPU performance is stable even under sustained workloads; the 3DMark Fire Strike stress test is passed at 97.3%. There is no performance reduction on battery power, either.

Gaming Performance

We were surprised by FPS drops during our gaming benchmarks. We suspected the graphics drivers at first, but similar to our stress test, there seem to be some problems when you stress the CPU and GPU simultaneously. The TDP drops to 6W about every 30 seconds, which results in FPS drops. We expect this will be fixed with an upcoming BIOS update and we will update this article once there is a new BIOS version.

Emissions - X1 Yoga G6 now with two fans

System Noise

New cooling solution with fan exhaust at the rear.
New cooling solution with fan exhaust at the rear.

Lenovo has completely redesigned the cooling solution and now uses two smaller fans (instead of one larger unit). The fans are usually turned off during light workloads, but they will quickly start spinning when you stress the device a bit more. There are basically two different noise levels, and the fans now reach their maximum level of 36.7 dB(A) quicker after the BIOS update. This means the new Yoga is a bit louder than the old model, but the murmur does not have a high frequency (which is not uncommon for small fans) and it is not annoying. You can also adjust the maximum fan noise with the Windows performance slider. if you don't need the maximum performance, you can just select a lower power level and you will get a quieter fan noise. We did not notice coil whine on our test unit.

Temperature

The surface temperatures are very low while idling and light workloads. The aluminum chassis does get pretty warm under load though, and direct skin contact with the hot spots is pretty uncomfortable. Up to 44 °C above the keyboard and up to 47 °C at the bottom are still not critical. The fan exhaust is now located at the rear, so you have to be careful when you use the X1 Yoga as a tablet in portrait mode.

The power consumption in the stress test fluctuated heavily before the BIOS update. It still fluctuates for a couple of minutes after the update to BIOS 1.24, but then levels off at ~25W, which is sufficient for 4x ~1.8 GHz (CPU) and ~760 MHz (iGPU). The performance is not limited immediately after the stress test.

Speakers

While Lenovo equips the X1 Titanium Yoga with just two speaker modules, the X1 Yoga G6 once again get four. Two are located at the bottom and two next to the keyboard. The sound quality is very good, both for conferences as well as media playback. There is obviously limited bass, but the sound is still very rich and linear. The front of the base unit will slightly vibrate at higher volumes, though.
