The Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16ARX8 (82WM0009FR) versus the competition

The Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16ARX8 (82WM0009FR) is now available at Lenovo France and offers a configuration/price ratio interesting for its category where it is one of the only ones to offer such a recent and powerful graphics card and processor with such a large amount of RAM, such a large capacity SSD as well as a screen with such a high frequency and definition, and this in a 16-inch chassis, while offering the choice of operating system.

If this Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16ARX8 (82WM0009FR) does not meet all your criteria, you will find on our guide Gaming laptop other configurations to play with a similar budget. With the same budget, favor the model that has the most powerful graphics card, it is the one that will have the most impact on performance.

Chassis, connectivity, screen of the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16ARX8 (82WM0009FR)

With its dark Onyx Grey design with angular lines and connections positioned mainly at the back, it has a resolutely gamer appearance.

This creative gaming laptop has good connectivity with its USB-C, its Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6E ax wireless modules for communicating and connecting remotely, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its Ethernet and audio ports as well as its 4 USB USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals to it.

A backlighting solution is of course fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical so that you can see its keys better in the dark.

The screen will appeal to both gamers and creators. It adopts a high frequency of 240Hz which reinforces fluidity in everyday life including in games. In addition, with its IPS and sRGB specifications, the screen has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles while reproducing colors more faithfully than average. In addition, the screen adopts a 2.5K definition higher than Full HD, ideal for displaying High Definition content, while its 16/10 format is more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a glossy panel in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors).

To exploit the full capabilities of this creative gaming laptop, it is necessary to install a complete system such as a Linux or Windows distribution.

This will allow you to benefit from NVIDIA Optimus technology, which determines graphics requirements in real time based on the tasks being performed. When the performance of the graphics solution integrated into the processor proves insufficient, Optimus automatically switches to the dedicated graphics card in real time.

The first is used to the maximum by Optimus despite its much more modest performance because it consumes little energy which favors autonomy compared to the more greedy and powerful dedicated GPU. With one or the other, you can obviously look at photos and videos.

Performance, battery life of the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16ARX8 (82WM0009FR)

The Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16ARX8 (82WM0009FR) can appeal to those with a large budget who want to invest in a versatile High Definition laptop in a comfortable format that is powerful in gaming and creation and equipped with recent components.

It integrates an AMD processor Ryzen 7000 high-end with new Zen 4 architecture, the Dragon Range Ryzen 7 7745HX Octo Core. It is here coupled with a good amount of RAM of 32 GB above average to provide high overall power capable of satisfying the most demanding users.

Creatives will particularly appreciate this core because it ensures much faster processing than a classic Quad/Hexa Core and 8/16 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly strong in areas that are demanding in CPU and RAM resources using multi-cores, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

Creators will be even more delighted that their multimedia processing is accelerated here by the dedicated GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card, and this under software using multi-core, such as Premiere/Photoshop, VSDC or Sony Vegas.

High-end, the GeForce RTX 4070 ray tracing is a dedicated graphics card that will also appeal to gamers. Because it is capable of running the most recent games that are demanding on 3D resources even though the 2.5K definition of the screen requires more GPU calculations than Full HD, which results in a lower number of fps.

Storage is up to par, entrusted to an SSD with a comfortable capacity of 1 TB capable of accommodating multiple games, software and files.

Let's take this opportunity to recall the advantages of an SSD compared to a hard drive: greater resistance to shocks, reduced energy consumption, silent operation and even greater speed.

In practice, thanks to the SSD, for example, we can access online game maps more quickly than with a hard drive, and we get much faster game/software launches, processing and start/stops.
More generally, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.

Finally, expect some heating and noise in case of heavy loads (e.g. games, processing) of this versatile multimedia creator gaming laptop. We can estimate that it can last around 5 hours on battery in light use while waiting for more concrete tests.

To limit temperatures, you can use a computer in addition to this ventilated support (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
