Lenovo ThinkPad L14 İncelemesi: AMD Tekrar Yapıyor

AMD dominance in the ThinkPad-series? Selefi, loş bir ekran ve kısılmış bir Whiskey Lake işlemcisinden muzdaripti. İlk kez bu yılki Lenovo L serisi ThinkPad'in AMD SKU'suna da bir göz atıyoruz ve Ryzen 5 4500U hexa-core'un ne kadar iyi performans gösterdiğini görmekten heyecan duyuyoruz. Sonuçta, AMD donanımlı ThinkPad E14 ve T14 dizüstü bilgisayarlar Intel muadillerini önemli marjlarla yönetti.
Daniel Puschina, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (Çeviren Aslinur Sarica), 🇺🇸 🇩🇪 ...

Lenovo ThinkPad L14, geçen yılki 14 inç ThinkPad L490'ın halefidir. Geçen yılki incelemede, genel olarak iyi bir paket olduğu ortaya çıkmasına rağmen ne ekranın ne de CPU'nun özellikle iyi performans göstermediğini fark ettik. Bu yıl, Lenovo'nun L serisi tarihinde ilk kez bir Intel ve bir AMD işlemci arasında seçim yapabilirsiniz. Lenovo'nun L serisi, daha yüksek kaliteli T serisi ile daha uygun fiyatlı giriş seviyesi E serisinin tam ortasında yer alır ve öncelikle iş kullanıcılarını hedef alır. L14'ün dış özelliklerinin çoğunu selefi ile paylaştığı göz önüne alındığında, bu incelemede esas olarak yeni AMD CPU'ya odaklanacağız.

Durum - Tipik ThinkPad

The most important components are easy to get to
The most important components are easy to get to

Lenovo'dan beklendiği gibi genel yapı kalitesi sağlam. ThinkPad L14 önemli ölçüde gıcırdıyor ya da bükülmüyor ve 14 inçlik kasanın tüm üst kısmı, parmak izlerini çekmesine rağmen pürüzlü plastikten yapılmıştır. İnce ekran çerçeveleri hafif lastikle kaplanmıştır ve ekran kapağı kapalıyken avuç içi dayanaklarıyla aynı hizada oturur. İki menteşe sağlamdır ve tek elle açılmanın mümkün kalmasını sağlamak için gereken mükemmel miktarda direnci sunar. Maksimum açılma açısı 180 derecedir. Alt panelin birkaç vida sökülerek kolayca çıkarılabileceği düşünüldüğünde, bu modelde bakım basit ve kolaydır. Bu, 64 GB'a kadar yükseltilebilen RAM gibi en önemli bileşenlere erişmenizi sağlayacaktır. Pil maalesef kullanıcı tarafından değiştirilemez.

Geçen yılın L490'ına kıyasla L14 2,1 mm daha ince ve 4 mm daha dardır. Ağırlığı 1.7 kg ile aynı kaldı.

Bağlantı - AMD, HDMI 2.0'ı getiriyor

Bağlantı, geçen yılki L490'a göre değişmedi. L serisi, yalnızca T serisinde bulunan Thunderbolt bağlantı noktasından yoksun olmaya devam ediyor. Bağlantı noktası düzeni de ThinkPad L490'a göre değişmeden kaldı. Ana fark, artık 30 Hz yerine 60'ta 4K çözünürlükleri destekleyen yeni HDMI bağlantı noktasıdır. HDMI bağlantı noktasının Intel ve AMD modelleri arasında farklılık gösterdiğini unutmayın. AMD SKU'ları HDMI 2.0'ı (60 Hz'de 4k) desteklerken Intel SKU'lar hala HDMI 1.4 (24 Hz'de 4K) ile sınırlıdır.

L ve T serisi arasındaki farklar, maksimum parlaklık (244'e karşı 371 nit) ve ayrıca renk alanı kapsamı açısından çok belirgindir ve L14, daha pahalı olan iş kardeşinin çok gerisindedir. L490 ile karşılaştırıldığında parlaklık, kontrast oranı ve siyah seviyesindeki bazı iyileştirmelerle pratik olarak aynı kaldı. Bu, inceleme birimimizin hala HP ve Dell'den daha iyi performans gösterdiğini söyledi.

Dış mekanda kullanılabilirlik, aydınlık ortamlarda bile yeterliydi, ancak doğrudan ışık kaynaklarından kesinlikle kaçınmalısınız. Rahatlamak için bulutlu bir güne veya en azından tam gölgeye ihtiyacınız var.

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
29.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15.6 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 71 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
42 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.6 ms rise
↘ 20.4 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. » 55 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.7 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9725 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Panelin kendisi, kalibrasyondan sonra bile büyük renk sapmalarından muzdarip olmaya devam eden nispeten ucuz bir IPS panelidir. Bu nedenle L14, ciddi fotoğraf düzenleme için uygun değildir, ancak tipik ofis ve iş ortamlarında mükemmel şekilde çalışmalıdır.

Performans - AMD ile Kısıtlama Yok

İşlemci

AMD'nin Ryzen 5 4500U, altı Zen 2 çekirdeğinde Hyperthreading'i desteklemiyor ve bu nedenle tam olarak sunabileceği çekirdek sayısı kadar iş parçacığı içeriyor. Bununla birlikte, 2,3 GHz'lik biraz daha yüksek bir temel saat hızında, 4 GHz'e kadar turbo güçlendirme ile çalışır. Ek ayrıntılar özel sayfamızda bulunabilir.

Çok çekirdekli kıyaslamalarda, AMD Ryzen 5 destekli ThinkPad L14, yakın zamanda gözden geçirilen ThinkPad E14'e benzer şekilde performans gösterdi ve aynı donanıma sahip HP ProBook 445 ve Dell Latitude 14 rakiplerinden daha iyi performans gösterdi. Ayrıca, performansı ilk çalıştırmadan sonra önemli ölçüde düşme eğiliminde olan Intel CPU'ların aksine, CineBench döngümüzde arka arkaya 20 kez çalıştırıldıktan sonra bile performansın sabit ve tutarlı kaldığı için, kısıtlama kanıtı bulamadık. Uzun lafın kısası: Intel CPU'lar, performans kısıtlamasına AMD CPU'lardan daha duyarlı görünüyor.

Our review unit featured a 512 GB Wester Digital SSD (WDC PC SN730 SDBQNTY-512GB) whose very important (from the operating system’s point of view at least) CrystalDiskMark 5.2 read/write 4K performance was lower than on all of its competitors. In AS SSD, its 4K read performance was lower than expected as well. We also found a significant performance difference between running on battery and running on mains. Without an active power supply, the read seq numbers dropped by almost 40 %.

GPU Performance

GPU-Z screenshot
GPU-Z screenshot

The Ryzen 5 features an AMD Radeon RX Vega 6 GPU with 8 CUs running at 1.2 GHz. This new GPU is a giant leap compared to the L490’s ancient Intel UHD Graphics 620, which is best exemplified by the fact that scores in 3DMark 11 doubled. Thus, the AMD-powered L-series is capable of taking on its Intel-equipped T-series that continues to include Intel’s UHD Graphics 620, and thus only performed half as well in our benchmarks. That said our review unit could have achieved even better scores with dual-channel RAM instead of its default single-channel configuration. Take for example the ThinkPad E14 with the very same iGPU as the L14 but dual-channel instead of single-channel mode RAM: it ran up to 29 % faster.

The L14 passed our stress test with flying colors. You will find more details in the emissions section under temperature below. Performance dropped slightly on battery. In 3DMark 11, we noticed a 5 % decrease in CPU (6,664 vs. 7,061 in Physics) and 9 % decrease in GPU performance (3,092 vs. 3,401 in Graphics).Gaming performance was right where we would have expected it to be. Overall, the L14 performed slightly below average for an AMD Radeon RX Vega 6. AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 7, such as we find for example in Lenovo’s T14s, was significantly faster, and outperformed our L14 by 10 FPS on average in FHD, a very common gaming display resolution.

Emissions – Quiet Fan, Quiet Speaker

Noise Emissions

Just like its predecessor and the ThinkPad T14s our review unit remained pleasantly quiet overall. It peaked at just 32.8 dB(A) during our stress test, which was a pleasant surprise. Fan noise frequency was also very pleasant overall and not at all annoying even after long periods of time. We found no evidence of coil whine on our review unit.

Temperature

Stress test
Stress test

Overall, the ThinkPad L14’s temperatures around the keyboard area were better than its L490 predecessor’s with Whiskey Lake that tended to reach up to 46 °C in the top right corner. In comparison, our AMD-powered review unit peaked at 43 °C. Unfortunately, temperatures around the palm rests are around 7 °C higher than on the L490. The L14’s hot spot is located at the bottom rear where it peaked at around 50 °C – too hot for lap use.

Power consumption very quickly settled at 25 W during our stress test resulting in around 2.8 GHz and around 890 MHz for CPU and GPU, respectively.

Verdict – A Breath of Fresh Air thanks to AMD

Lenovo did an overall very good job with the ThinkPad L14, which continues to emphasize Lenovo’s traditional strengths such as its sturdy high-quality case, its pleasant-to-use keyboard, straightforward maintenance, and an interesting collection of ports and connectivity including a smart card reader as well as a docking port for business users.

On the other hand, Lenovo missed its opportunity to improve upon the L490’s weaknesses, such as for example the dim display or its overall poor speakers that lack both volume and bass.  Lenovo’s choice of display panel is a sore point in particular, and we would have wished for a wiser choice.

The most important achievement for the L-series is the introduction of AMD’s Ryzen 5 4500U. In our reviews of the ThinkPad E14 and T14 the AMD SKUs proved to perform much better than the Intel SKUs, and the same holds true with the L14 as well. AMD is simply better.

There was no noticeable throttling and thus no drop in performance during our CineBench loop. In contrast, Intel CPUs tend to lose a lot of performance after the first run due to performance throttling. The price you pay for this increase in performance is a slightly higher power consumption as well as higher surface temperatures at the bottom under maximum load. The GPU’s comparatively poor performance can be easily remedied by adding a second RAM module.

AMD brings a breath of fresh air to Lenovo’s ThinkPad series, and changes the traditional rules. Intel’s dominance is about to falter as AMD not only offers lower prices but also a significant performance boost. Thus, we have no choice but to once again highly recommend the AMD SKU over its Intel counterpart.
