Performance, battery life of the Lenovo ThinkPad E595 (20NF0004FR)
The Lenovo ThinkPad E595 (20NF0004FR) is a 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for general purpose portable use Pro.
Thanks to its finesse and its controlled weight even if it is not as light as an Ultrabook, this computer sees its transport facilitated. Side autonomy, it can last about 8 hours on battery in light use, which will interest nomads.
However, it delivers good general performance able to satisfy many users because it relies on an AMD APU processor (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 3500U Quad Core low consumption Picasso coupled with 8 GB of RAM.
To regularly perform demanding work in processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low power processor.
In any case, the Ryzen 5 3500U has the advantage of integrating within it the graphics solution Radeon Vega 8 significantly more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors. In fact, the Vega 8 is positioned at the level of an entry-level graphics card. It therefore allows you to play titles that consume little graphics resources but also of course to watch photos and videos.
This computer will also appeal to those who wish to obtain a high storage capacity because it offers a total of 1.2 TB. We find more specifically a 256 GB SSD intended to house the system as well as the main software, coupled with a hard disk with a large capacity of 1000 GB to accommodate the rest.
In practice, the SSD guarantees significantly more fluid and responsive operation than a simple hard drive. This notably results in much faster software start / stop and launch.
