Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16ARX8 review: Gaming laptop with RTX 4050 in great form

Adept at adapting. The cooling system in the latest base Legion Pro, which sports a Ryzen 5 and an RTX 4050, is able to show what it’s made of. The result is a gaming laptop that can keep pace with other entry-level devices without getting too loud. Lenovo's software also provides further interesting options.

The Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16ARX8 has enough performance to place it somewhere between an entry-level and an upper mid-range laptop. It can be configured with a Ryzen 5 7645HX or a Ryzen 7 7745HX as well as Nividia’s RTX 4050, 4060 or 4070. The device will set you back somewhere around €1,500 to slightly above €2,000 (approx. US$1,655 to US$2,200), depending on the specs. The display, SSD and RAM can likewise be configured.

We have previously reviewed two other variants of this Lenovo laptop: the Legion Pro 5 16IRX8 with an Intel Core i7-13700HX and RTX 4060 as well as the Pro 5 16ARX8 with an AMD Ryzen 7 7745HX and RTX 4070. We'll therefore only briefly cover the chassis, features and input devices here. You can refer to the two earlier reviews for more information.

Now it’s time to put the base configuration of the Legion Pro 5 through its paces. Featuring the same cooling system and chassis as the more powerful variants, the Pro 5 16ARX8 should have a few advantages over them, at least when it comes to thermals. Of course, the base-spec Legion Pro 5 will also be pushed to its limits more easily in terms of performance. Nevertheless, these limits are not as low as the entry-level GPU might suggest.

The Legion Pro 5 is competing against the likes of the Asus TUF Gaming A16 featuring an AMD Radeon RX 7600S as well as the Medion Erazer Scout E20, which also comes with an RTX 4050.

Case - Compact Legion with muted design

The clean, black chassis forgoes any splashes of colour and lighting effects. But it is equipped with pleasantly stiff hinges and an exceptionally solid metal bezel. The base section is also sufficiently sturdy.

Specifications - Only missing those blazing fast ports

As with the Legion Pro 5 16IRX8, there are no Thunderbolt ports on the laptop. But this is to be expected from an AMD-based model. That said, the device offers three video outputs and can be charged via the USB-C port on the back, though this charging method doesn’t provide the full power required for gaming. Apart from that, the Legion Pro 5 comes with a good number and variety of ports. There is no card reader on board. 

Another interesting feature is the mechanical switch on the right side that cuts off power to the webcam.

Webcam

The Full HD webcam delivers good enough image quality for video calls and adjusts brightness well to changing lighting conditions. The microphone is less compelling for a dual-array model. Voices sound slightly tinny, and you’ll only get decent volume when speaking directly into the microphone.

Input devices - Gaming notebook with comfy keyboard

Other than the slightly narrower numpad, the rest of the keyboard (including the arrow keys) is as large as a typical desktop keyboard. The keys could use a little more travel but provide a nice feedback. We didn’t like the touchpad as much. It sometimes doesn’t register a click input when we tap on the surface and only does so when we press down on the button physically.

The keyboard backlight offers limited customisation. There are only four zones, a handful of colours and even fewer effects available.

Display - Bright, accurate, fast

Subpixel on Legion Pro 5

Almost no screen bleeding
Almost no screen bleeding

The screen on the Legion Pro 5 ticks all the essential boxes for a gaming display: 240Hz refresh rate, a resolution of 2,560 by 1,600 pixels and full sRGB coverage. The high pixel count along with the 16:10 aspect ratio also enables you to edit videos and images comfortably. The Legion Pro 5 packs enough computing power for such applications. That said, the refresh rate and resolution do feel somewhat too ambitious for the entry-level model with an RTX 4050, which you’ll see later in the “Gaming Performance” section.

Another thing worth noting is the high peak brightness of over 500 cd/m². This means the display can produce bright and vibrant images that pop even in bright environments. During evening gaming sessions, though, this particular quality has less of an impact on how images look on screen. In a dim environment, the display’s relatively poor black level (which results in a merely average contrast ratio) doesn’t allow for very deep blacks during darker scenes. An OLED display would probably have been more suitable.

But in this price bracket, and especially for gaming, the IPS panel on board seems to be an excellent choice due to its great overall image quality. We didn’t detect any PWM flicker and only noticed a minimal amount of screen bleeding.

* ... smaller is better

As with the displays on similarly spec’d competitors, the panel on the Legion Pro 5 can almost reproduce the entire sRGB gamut and is only a fraction away from 100% coverage based on our measurements. Full AdobeRGB and Display-P3 reproduction is beyond the display's capabilities. However, this doesn’t present any disadvantage on a gaming laptop. It is even possible to edit photos very well on the device, provided you aren't expecting it to meet professional standards.

According to our measurements, blue had the highest Delta E of all the colours. But even so, only a pair of well-trained eyes can perceive this max Delta E. The overall colour difference is so low that even professional monitors wouldn’t perform much better either. Unsurprisingly, our calibration didn’t produce any significant improvement.

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
5.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.8 ms rise
↘ 3.4 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

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. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.3 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18752 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Thanks to the display's matt surface and high brightness, colours and text are easily readable outdoors, even in daylight. But colours do suffer in direct sunlight. Other than that, there is nothing standing in the way of you using the laptop on a balcony or in a garden.

The IPS panel doesn't exhibit any shifts in colour or brightness even when viewed from a very sharp angle.

Performance - Highly customisable Legion

The configuration as spec’d is fairly typical for an entry-level laptop. Equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 7645HX, an RTX 4050 and 16 GB of RAM, the Legion Pro 5 isn’t necessarily able to run modern games at max settings. But by turning down a few quality settings and, ideally, dropping resolution to Full HD, you can almost always get 100 FPS or more from the laptop.

Test conditions

You can cycle between three performance modes using the Fn+Q key combination commonly found on Lenovo laptops. We used “Performance” mode for our benchmarks and gaming tests. There is also “Silent” mode, which typically lowers benchmark results by 20% but also more than halves the amount of fan noise. The last preset is an intelligent “Balanced” mode that automatically adjusts settings as required. During our testing, this mode never quite matched the settings in “Performance” mode.

However, these three modes only make up a fraction of the options available. Lenovo Vantage lets you manually tune all sorts of CPU and GPU parameters in conjunction with a personalised fan profile. For instance, you can manually define the processor’s short- and long-term power limits, the max power supply to the graphics card, the dynamic boost and even the max temperature limits.

Between passive cooling and customised power allocation to the GPU and CPU, there are countless options to let you personalise the gaming laptop to your needs. All you need to do is to accept Lenovo’s warning that doing so may cause damage to your device. Besides, not every setting will result in every application running stably. That said, it is very feasible to obtain good results if you roughly know what each setting does and adjust the fans accordingly.

Processor

Staying true to the lineup, the 7th gen AMD Ryzen 5 7645HX continues to focus on features optimised for gaming. It contains six cores and twelve threads and boasts a generous 32 MB of L3 cache. The cores have a decent max clock speed of 5.0GHz. 

The processor is thus not that far off from the higher-tier Intel Core i7-13700H found in the Medion Erazer Scout E20. Whilst the Ryzen can’t fully keep pace in multi-core tasks, it truly shines and makes up for this shortcoming in single-core tests. Across the various benchmarks, its overall score lines up perfectly with the average score obtained from all the gaming laptops we’ve tested in the past two years. 

Because the processor isn’t receiving the maximum power possible and the cooling system is sufficiently sized, the laptop’s Cinebench R15 score remained almost perfectly consistent throughout the 25 runs. By comparison, the i7-13700H scored lower than the Ryzen 5 at the end of the loop test. Even in Silent mode (pink line), the Legion Pro 5 managed to outperform the Scout E20 over an extended period.

Performance is also superb when the Legion is on battery power. Amongst other things, Cinebench R23 multi-core score decreased from 14,000 to 12,700, which is less than a 10% drop.

DPC latency

Our positive overall impression continues with the device’s latencies. Unlike most other notebooks, the Legion Pro 5 is capable of handling real-time audio tasks according to LatencyMon. Although probably a handful people have plans to do real-time audio processing, it demonstrates that the drivers are well configured. That said, installing any updates or additional software may change the results significantly.

Though not perfect, the few dropped frames during 4K video streaming are acceptable for a gaming laptop. The iGPU (up to 30% usage) had nonetheless plenty to do during the test.

Mass storage

The included SK Hynix SSD delivered above-average read and write speeds throughout. The M.2 NVMe drive is able to make good use of the PCIe 4.0 interface. The only issue is that the 512 GB capacity is quite paltry. Even a small game collection can quickly require more storage than this. The good news is the Legion Pro 5 has a second SSD slot to let you easily expand the amount of storage in the system.
