Yoga Pro 9i 14 in Review: Lenovo's best Multimedia Laptop with AdobeRGB Mini-LED Panel

RTX 4050 and Advanced Optimus. The new Yoga Pro 9i 14 is Lenovo’s flagship consumer device and packed with features like the extremely bright Mini-LED panel with 165 Hz, a Core i7 processor as well as Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop inside a compact 14-inch chassis. The only problem is the battery runtime, where you will have to make some compromises.

After the excellent subnotebook Yoga Pro 7i 14, Lenovo now ships its flagship multimedia device, the Yoga Pro 9i 14. It offers almost every feature you can think of. In addition to a modern Raptor Lake processor as well as the new GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop, you also get a 14.5-inch Mini-LED display with 3200 x 1920 pixels and 165 Hz. It is supposed to reach brightness levels up to 1200 nits and could be a serious contender for Apple’s Mini-LED panel in the MacBook Pro 14.

Our review unit has the designation Yoga Pro 9 14-IRP G8 (83BU000RGE) and retails for 2300 Euros. In addition to the previously mentioned components, it also offers 32 GB LPDDR5X-6400 RAM and a 1 TB PCIe-4.0 SSD. Customers with access to Lenovo’s Campus program can get this model for around 2070 Euros.

Case - Yoga with Aluminum construction

The case of the Yoga Pro 9i 14 is almost exclusively made of aluminum and there are hardly any visual differences compared to the previously reviewed Yoga Pro 7i 14, only the bottom panel and the screws differ slightly. The camera bump is also highlighted with a reflective surface on the lid, but this area also protrudes slightly, which was not the case on the Yoga Pro 7. The device is very restrained in the color Strom Grey and it feels right at home in professional environments. Fingerprints are not a big issue, either.

The stability of the base unit is excellent and the lid is even sturdier compared to the Yoga Pro 7 since it is slightly thicker. We cannot bend the device and there are no creaking noises. You can just lift the lid with one hand since the hinges are very firm, which means they can prevent bouncing very effectively. There are no problems with the build quality, only the bottom panel is pretty thin (which is only noticeable when you remove it).

Yoga Pro 9i 14 vs. Yoga Pro 9i 16

At almost 1.7 kg, the Yoga Pro 9i is a bit heavier and also 2 mm thicker than the Yoga Pro 7i 14. You notice the weight when you carry the device around, but at the same time it creates a dense and high-quality feeling. The footprint of the comparison devices is very similar overall, only the MSI Stealth 14 Studio requires a bit more space on the desk. The 140W power adapter tips the scale at around 450 grams.

Connectivity - Thunderbolt 4 & Wi-Fi 6E

The port selection is very good and Lenovo also equips its premium laptop with a full-size card reader. Compared to the Yoga Pro 7i 14 you also get an additional USB-A port, but only one Thunderbolt 4 port. All ports are located at the rear of the sides and are easy to access. You usually do not need any adapters, either.

SD Card Reader

The card reader on the left side accommodates full-size SD-cards, but the stick out of the case by around 2 cm. We determine transfer rates of around 80 MB/s with our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60), which means the Yoga Pro 9i 14 is only at the bottom of our comparison charts.

Communication

Wireless network connections are handled by Intel’s AX211 module, which also supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard with 6 GHz networks. The transfer rates in combination with our reference router from Asus were good, but they could be even better. However, there are no limitations in practice and large data transfers worked well.

Webcam

The slightly thicker camera bump accommodates a 5 MP webcam, which offers decent image quality both for pictures as well as videos and you do not need an external webcam for conferences or the like. There is also an additional IR sensor for facial recognition via Windows Hello. Lenovo included an electronic shutter, which can be activated with a little slider on the ride side of the chassis.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by five Torx screws (T5) and can easily be removed. Once inside you get access to the two fans, the battery, the Wi-Fi module, as well as the M.2-2280 SSD. The memory on the other hand is soldered (32 GB LPDDR5X-6400 in case of our review unit), so you cannot upgrade it.

Input Devices - 1.5 mm key travel

Lenovo once again uses the very comfortable keyboard with 1.5 mm travel for the Yoga Pro 9i. It is a very keyboard with quiet as well as precise key strokes, which does not have to hide behind high-quality business laptops. There is two-stage white illumination, which can be activated via brightness sensor.

The large clickpad (13.5 x 8 cm) offers ample space for cursor movements and gestures with up to four fingers, which works well and reliably thanks to good gliding capabilities. You can physically push down the lower half of the pad, but this results in a very loud clicking sound, which leaves a cheap impression. We recommend you use tap-to-click instead.

Display - Mini-LED panel only in HDR mode

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

One of the biggest highlights of the Yoga Pro 9i 14 is definitely the 16:10 Mini-LED panel with a high resolution of 3072 x 1920 pixels. This results in extremely sharp images, but we are not sure this resolution is really necessary for a 14.5-inch screen or whether a slightly lower resolution would have been sufficient as well. The subjective picture impression of the glossy touch panel is excellent and the higher frequency of 165 Hz results in very smooth movements. You can also get the Yoga Pro 9i with the 3K IPS screen (120 Hz) we have already reviewed on the Yoga Pro 7i 14.

Now it gets interesting, because this Mini-LED panel behaves differently compared to any other Mini-LED screen we have tested so far. In simple terms, you can say that the Mini-LED control is deactivated in SDR mode and you have a regular LED panel in front of you (similar to an IPS screen, for example), which means there is no blooming. This has a big advantage for us since we can easily determine the response times (which are good), which is usually an issue due to the Mini-LED backlight and we had no issues with the calibration, either. However, this also means that there are no true blacks in SDR mode, but rather a very dark grey with some minor backlight bleeding. The picture is pitch-black when you activate the HDR mode, but then you can notice some blooming. We took the two following images with a completely black image (we only left the cursor visible and the keyboard lighting activated on the HDR image for reference) and you can see the difference very easily.

Minor backlight bleeding in SDR mode

Pure black in HDR mode

The brightness is excellent at up to 720 nits (680 nits on average) in SDR mode. The black value is higher due to the previously mentioned behavior, but it is still very low at 0.19 considering the high brightness and still results in an excellent contrast ratio of more than 3500:1.

Maximum HDR brightness ~1400 nits
Maximum HDR brightness ~1400 nits
Grayscale HDR mode

The black value drops to almost 0 in HDR mode, so the contrast ratio is also much higher. The brightness in HDR mode is once again surprising. While the MacBook Pro 14 only reaches its maximum brightness of 1600 nits with small APLs and drops to around 1100 nits when almost the whole picture is white, the Yoga Pro 9i reaches its maximum brightness of almost 1400 nits on a completely white image. Current OLED screens like on the Acer Swift X 14 or Gigabyte Aero 14 only manage ~550 nits peak brightness and do not stand a chance against the Yoga’s Mini-LED screen.

We analyzed the panel with the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro2) and Lenovo offers different color profiles for sRGB, P3 and AdobeRGB in the Vantage App (Device – Enhanced Settings). According to Lenovo, the panel is supposed to cover the full AdobeRGB color space, which is quite rare nowadays. We also selected the target color space AdobeRGB for our measurements but the out of the box performance is a bit disappointing. In addition to a visible color cast towards orange, we also notice that the color temperature is too warm and some colors miss the target DeltaE-2000 deviation of 3.

Our own calibration (profile can be downloaded for free in the display box above) improves the performance noticeably and both the color cast as well as the color deviations are gone. There are no outliers anymore, which means you can edit pictures and videos in the AdobeRGB space. However, our measurements show that the P3 reference is only covered by 92 %.

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
11.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.7 ms rise
↘ 7.7 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 27 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
12.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.6 ms rise

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 22 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.4 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 6000 Hz ≤ 70 % brightness setting
≤ 330 cd/m² brightness

The display backlight flickers at 6000 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 70 % (330 cd/m²) and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 6000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

Flickering occurs even at high brightness setting and may have an effect on the user during everyday use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17490 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

PWM flickering: 5 % brightness

PWM flickering is a big topic on Mini-LED panels, but the behavior here is once again interesting. Mini-LED backlights usually flicker at high frequencies, which is usually no problem. In the case of the Yoga Pro 9i 14, however, the flickering only starts when the brightness drops to 70 % or lower (even in HDR mode), which is equivalent to a brightness of 330 nits. There is no flickering above this level and the flickering also varies between 3.8 kHz and 17 kHz. We measured around 6 kHz for most brightness levels, which should ne result in problems for the majority of users.

The touchscreen is very reflective, which is already noticeable indoors. You should definitely try to avoid reflections from Windows or light sources. However, the high brightness certainly helps to see the contents most of the time, even in bright conditions. The viewing angle stability is very good.

Performance - Yoga with Advanced Optimus & GPU Overclocking

Our review unit is an average SKU in terms of performance. Lenovo offers an upgrade to the Core i9-13905H as well as the tow dGPUs GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop or even GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop (also with 80W TGP). Customers can choose between 16, 32, or 64 GB LPDDR5X-6400 memory.

 
 
 

Review Settings

Lenovo offers the usual energy modes, which can either be changed in the preloaded Vantage App or very comfortable via key combination Fn+Q. The modes have big impacts on the performance and we listed all the TDP/TGP values in the table below:

Mode CPU load GPU load Stress test max. fan noise
Power Saver 30 -> 20 Watts 28 Watts CPU: 20 Watts
GPU: 22 Watts
32.9 dB(A)
Intelligent Cooling 70 -> 60 Watts 55 Watts CPU: 25 Watts
GPU: 40 Watts
45 dB(A)
High Performance 104 -> 75 Watts 80 Watts CPU: 35 Watts
GPU: 65 Watts
52.9 dB(A)

We used the High Performance mode for our benchmarks and measurements to get the highest performance. We will also check the other profiles in the sections gaming performance and fan noise. We can already say that the Power Saver mode is not suitable for gaming, but the performance is sufficient for light everyday workloads and you will benefit from a silent device in most scenarios.

Processor - Core i7-13705H

Lenovo does not use the popular Core i7-13700H, but the Core i7-13705H instead. The specs of the two Raptor Lake chips are almost identical with 6 performance and 8 efficiency cores as well as a maximum core clock of 5.0 GHz, but the i7-13705H does not support vPro (which is negligible for a multimedia laptop). The CPU can consume up to 104 Watts and then levels off at 75 Watts under sustained workloads, which means the Pro 9i has more headroom compared to the Yoga Pro 7i 14 with the Core i7-13700H (80/53W). The CPU performance is very good in general and only the Asus ZenBook Pro 14 with the Core i9-13900H has a slight advantage in the first few minutes thanks to a higher power limit of 120 Watts. The single-core performance is also very good. The multi-core performance is reduced in the other two power modes; ~55 % in Power Saver and ~15 % in the Intelligent Cooling mode.

The processor can consume up to 65 Watts on battery power and eventually drops to 40 Watts, which results in a performance deficit of ~30 % in multi-core scenarios. Please see our tech section for additional CPU benchmarks.

System Performance

The system performance is excellent and the Yoga Pro 9 can secure a place at the front of the comparison charts in the synthetic benchmarks. The subjective performance impression is also very good and inputs are executed without delays. Due to the Advanced Optimus graphics switching there will be stutters of 1-2 seconds when you launch a game, for example. If you do not like this behavior, you can also use the traditional Optimus switching, even though this will slightly impact the performance.

Replaceable M.2-2280 SSD
Replaceable M.2-2280 SSD

The Yoga Pro 9i 14 offers one fast PCIe-4.0 slot for M.2-2280 SSDs, which is filled with the Samsung PM9A1 (OEM version of the 980 Pro) in the case of our unit. It is the 1 TB version and you can use 870 GB for your own files and apps after the initial set-up. The PM9A1 is one of the fastest drives on the market with transfer rates of up to 7 GB/s. The drive almost passed our stress test, but has to drop the performance right before the test is completed. Overall, still a good performance without any limitation in practice. More SSD benchmarks are listed here.
