Review – Lenovo Legion 5 15ARH05 – AMD Ryzen 7 4800H – ENGLISH Version

Scris de: , in categoria: Notebook, in 19 June, 2020.

Batgtery life, temperature, noise level

A while back we tested AMD Ryzen 7 4800H in Asus TUF A15, and it peaked at 97.5 oC in our tests, while Legion 5 goes up to 99 oC. However, the cooling system used by Lenovo is a bit quieter, with the meter recording 41.3 dB, compared to the 44.5 dB reached by the Asus model, so this difference could easily be turned in Lenovo’s favor with a more aggresive fan profile. However, it is possible that this is only a characteristic of the sample we used for testing, and retail versions actually do have a more aggressive fan profile.

In terms of battery life, Lenovo Legion 5 15ARH05 has good performance, providing over 9 hours of work, 4 hours of intensive work or 3 hours of gaming away from the socket. It is not an ultra-portable and we cannot expect the same numbers, but overall you can work for a quite a while away from the power outlet.

    Thanks for another great review, thinking about getting this laptop for development first/gaming second. Please can you give your thoughts on this…
    1) Can the memory be expanded up to 32GB of memory with 2x16GB sticks
    2) Can you switch to the IGP and if so what is the affect on temp/battery life?
    3) Can you work with it on your lap if not playing an GPU intensive game (not too hot )?
    4) What is the keyboard like for touch typing?
    Thanks again.

    Hi Andrew,

    I am glad you like it.

    1 – as far as I know yes, to do have access to the memory and you can use 2 x 16GB sticks

    2 – Not so sure about that

    3 – When you are not doing heavy duty stuff you can use it in your lap, but that is not recommended in general with laptops that have the intake on the bottom side

    4 – I found the keyboard to be very pleasant in daily use, ferm but precise

    Not as far as I know of

  5. Hey Monstru, keep on the great job.
    Would you recommend the Tuf A15 or Legion 5 for build quality and thermals?
    99 degrees sounds really toasty. I plan to use the laptop for work in civil engineering so good cpu usage and a decent graphics is advised.

    TUF A15 is in the same line with IdeaPad Gaming 3. Legion 5 is in the superior segment, with the ROG models.
