Lenovo IdeaPad 5

 
Stam in casa, oameni buni, stam in casa si asteptam sa se termine nebunia care ne inconjoara. Si adevarul este ca in aceste momente, cel mai bun lucru pe care il putem face este sa stam in casa. Sa respectam recomandarile… sa ne spalam pe maini cu simt de raspundere… si sa incercam sa retinem din toate formele de media doar informatiile oficiale, care conteaza, filtrand mesajele panicarde, conspirationiste, care contin de obicei informatii false.

Si am mai spus-o… pentru genul de activitate intreprinsa de noi, lucratul de acasa nu este o noutate, drept urmare suntem ceva mai obisnuiti decat marea majoritate a populatiei cu statul acasa. Asta nu inseamna insa ca este comod, sau placut. In fond, lipsa libertatii de miscare, restrictiile de orice fel, precautiile pe care trebuie sa le luam in momentul in care iesim la cumparaturi nu sunt tocmai placute. Dar… sunt necesare… asa ca mergem mai departe si facem ce stim noi mai bine.

Si culmea, daca alte dati m-am plans de avalansa de lansari si volumul de munca depus pe perioade indelungate de timp, de aceasta data parca simt … opusul. Parca nu am suficiente articole de scris. Parca nu stau suficiente componente la rand, asteptand cuminti sa fie testate. Si parca… uneori este greu sa iti aduni gandurile si sa expui o compozitie coerenta, care sa transmita exact ceea ce ai vrut sa spui.

A nu se intelege ca nu avem material de lucru… avem… dar uneori mai asteptam dupa o componenta, alteori asteptam sa expire un NDA si per total parca exact in momentele in care chiar nu avem altceva de facut decat sa stam in casa si sa lucram… nu avem parte de agitatia de care ne plangeam alte dati.

Luati de exemplul si lansarea de astazi. Astazi… trebuia sa discutam despre mai multe notebook-uri, sa testam aproape toata gama de procesoare AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile, nume de cod Renoir, sa vedem cu ochii nostri cum s-au descurcat majoritatea producatorilor importanti din domeniu.

Dar… fatidica pandemie a afectat atat capacitatile de productie, cat si mijloacele de transport, astfel incat astazi va vom delecta doar cu doua articole. Bine… asta nu inseamna ca nu sunt interesante, ba din contra… din punctul meu de vedere avem de-a face cu un punct de cotitura in industrie, de care ne vom aminti pentru mult timp de acum incolo.

Pentru ca astazi putem sa va prezentam de ce sunt capabile in practica procesoarele din familia Renoir si pentru asta vom discuta pe marginea acestui subiect in doua articole. Primul, pe care il cititi acum, are ca subiect platforma Lenovo IdeaPad 5 si procesoarele din seria U. Astfel, am testat doua IdeaPad-uri cu configuratii similare, pentru a vedea cum se comporta AMD Ryzen 5 4500U si AMD Ryzen 7 4700U. Stati linistiti, nu am uitat nici de procesoarele din seria H – despre ele vom discuta in cel de-al doilea articol pe care il vom publica azi.

    Hello, thank you for the explicit test , but could you confirm if it´is dual channel RAM or just single.The values of CPU Z screenshot are a bit confusing.

  2. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    Hi,

    this one is dual-channel – there are single-channel and dual-channel versions available.

  3. moe a scris pe:

    Thank you ,
    i suppose the 16 gb version is dual and the 8 gb single , but both soldered .Is that right?

  4. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    Yes, I think so

  5. Andrew a scris pe:

    Hi, would be cool if you could also review the speakers. Maybe even make a recording of how they sound with some decent mic, ideally stereo one. Did you listen to any music on them?
    Was the CPU throttling? Looks like it was? Then I wonder how much more cpu power could we squeeze by applying liquid metal.
    Thanks!

  6. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    Hi Andrew, our tests are more performance oriented, so we usually do not test the speakers.

    Regarding throttling, AMD Renoir has TjMax set at 105 oC, so as long as the temperature doesn’t get there the CPU is not throttling.

    Alo

    Am o întrebare despre recenzia dvs. despre Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15.
    Cu versiunea RAM de 16 GB, puteți vedea pe imaginea CPU-Z de pe cardul „Memorie” că este „Dual Channel”.
    Dar pe cardul „SPD” puteți vedea că slotul nr. 1 este gol.
    Cum sunt posibile cele două lucruri în același timp?

    Multumesc

  8. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    Memoria este lipita pe placa de baza, motiv pentru care CPU-Z nu poate citi SPD-ul. Fiind vorba despre chip-uri lipite pe placa de baza, nu despre slot-uri SO-DIMM, acestea sunt configurate in dual-channel din controller.

    CPU-Z este un simplu utilitar, nefiind infailibil, in special daca programatorul nu a avut acces la astfel de configuratii.

    Hello, i think you claim that the ssd is a toshiba bg4 m2 2230. I also think it is a toshiba bg4 but not of size m2 2230. It looks to be an earlier discontinued sample of bg4 with length m2 2242 and with no full hardware disk encryption (opal2.0) but only partial encryption (pyrite). Can you chexk again and confirm?

  10. Jona a scris pe:

    Dear Monstru,
    thank you for the great review. Can you tell your readers if with the IdeaPad 5 15 ARE, you can switch from 15 to 25 Watt in BIOS?

  11. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    I have to check, but from what I know it is possible

  12. Jona a scris pe:

    Thanks for answering. It would be great if you can look into it again.
    By the way, your review has quite a huge fanbase at some German tech and shopping communities. The reason is the attractiveness of the new IdeaPad Ryzen 4000-lineup with cheap prices, and your review currently being the only one available on the internet. Your website stats should show a lot of traffic from Germany at the moment. ;-)

  13. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    I’ve noticed…Germany and UK (they also have it there) :)

  14. Matt a scris pe:

    Hey, is the RAM upgradeable in the 8gb soldered model? It isn’t clear from the pics

  15. Dhia Bouassida a scris pe:

    hello, does anyone know if we can change the ssd or the ram in the 14″ intel version ? thank you

  16. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    The RAM is not upgradeable – soldered only. But both 14″ and 15″ have have either M.2 2242 or 2280 option, so you can change the SSD.

  17. Jona a scris pe:

    Hello Monstru,
    any update on the question if you can switch from 15 to 25 Watt in the BIOS of the IdeaPad 5 15? Along with the official Lenovo tool “Lenovo Vantage” (which offers a “Performance Mode”), this could give a nice boost to the CPU/GPU.
    It would be really great if you have the time to look into it.

  18. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    Hi Jona,

    sorry I didn’t get to look into this, but I have 10 x Z490 motherboards that need my attention until Apr 30, so I was a bit busy.

    One thing however, the Vantage version on S540 13ARE has the same 3 options that we can see in BIOS (Battery Saving, Intelligent Cooling and Extreme Performance). So if we can switch the TDP… that is it, there is no other extra option, other than setting the Windows Slider to Performance.

    Now, I see no reason for IdeaPad 5 to be different, but I will double check.

  19. Jona a scris pe:

    Hi Monstru,
    thanks for the response. I didn’t intend to stress you in any way, and it sounds like you’re busy with other things, too. It’s positive that it looks like one can regulate the TDP somewhat, either in BIOS or via Software. Should give a little performance boost at least. Best Regards to Romania, stay healthy! ;-)

  20. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    Hi Jona,

    no, no, you did not stress me in any way, do not worry about it. I was just explaining why I can’t do it right now, that is all, no stress :)

  21. PJ a scris pe:

    Thank you for this review, the most complete and still straight forward I’ve ever read
    That achieved to convince me to buy that pc even though it was a little bit priecier than in Germany or in the UK. I think there are no competitors right now for that price range.

  22. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    HI PJ,

    I am glad you like it. I think they are very nice machines for the price and the AMD CPU’s are amazing!

  23. Vlad a scris pe:

    Salutare,

    Este disponibil laptopul asta in Ro?

  24. Matthew Bell a scris pe:

    Hi do you know if this laptop will output to a 4K monitor at 60hz? I believe you can use Display Port 1.2 via the USB-C? Any idea? Thankyou so much great review

  25. Monstru Post author a scris pe:

    Vlad – momentan si-a facut aparitia in Germania si Marea Britanie, va ajunge cat de curand in in Romania.

    Matthew – I do not have any information regarding this at the moment.

    @Vlad
    According to specs, it can’t. You should look into Yoga Slim 7, it has better connectivity:
    supports external digital monitor via HDMI or USB Type-C;
    supports three independent displays;
    Max resolution: 4096×2160 @48-60Hz (HDMI); 5120×2880 @60Hz (Type-C)
