Intended for gaming and creation, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16ACH6 (82JQ0018FR) is an aluminum gaming laptop capable of running recent games with its high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 ray tracing graphics card which also speeds up processing at the image of the large amount of RAM and the powerful Octo Core Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne processor. This computer designed to play and create takes advantage of a 16-inch Retina screen 100% sRGB with frequency of 165Hz to improve fluidity in games as well as fast SSD storage which enhances its responsiveness (but of limited capacity). RGB backlit chiclet keyboard but also connectivity with Wi-Fi ax, 2 USB-C and 4 USB are also on the program of this laptop PC for gamers and creators without a Thunderbolt port.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16ACH6 (82JQ0018FR)
With its anodized aluminum chassis with Stormy Gray shell and black interior, it has a resolutely gamer allure by taking up the codes of the genre, without being flashy.
Positioned mainly at the rear, the integrated connectivity is good except that it skips the Thunderbolt.
There are no less than 2 USB-C (against 1 maximum usually), wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, an output Practical HDMI video for easily connecting this PC to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 4 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible, against 3 maximum usually) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
You can obviously backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard, here via a 4-zone RGB system, which is very practical to discern them correctly in the dark.
The screen will be of interest to both gamers and creators with its screen adorned with a frequency of 165Hz which enhances fluidity in games as well as G-Sync technology as well as its 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics. Thanks to these, the colors are more faithful than the average and the viewing angles important, both horizontal and vertical. Lovers of (Very) High Definition content will be delighted to be dealing with a Retina panel with a WQXGA definition higher than Full HD. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16ACH6 (82JQ0018FR)
The Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16ACH6 (82JQ0018FR) may be of interest to those looking for a versatile 16-inch laptop that is powerful, gaming-oriented and creative.
As it embeds the dedicated high-end NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 high- end graphics card with ray tracing, this gaming laptop PC is capable of running recent games despite the high definition of the screen.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 3070 speeds up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop, which will be of interest to creatives.
In fact, the onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology activates the GeForce RTX 3070 when the performance of the AMD Radeon Vega 8 solution housed within the AMD processor is insufficient to perform the desired tasks.
More efficient than the UHD 630 of Intel processors, the Vega 8 is preferred to the maximum because it is energy efficient which promotes battery life.
The GeForce RTX 3070 is therefore activated to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Vega 8, for example to play. With one or the other, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
However, you should know that G-Sync and Optimus are incompatible with each other.
Battery life is therefore greatly impacted when G-Sync is activated (and not Optimus). Thus, depending on the technologies activated, bet between 2 and 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
It is the processor AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H Octo Core Cezanne which integrates within it the Radeon Vega 8. It is here coupled to a large amount of RAM of 32 GB.
In other words, the overall power provided by this gaming laptop PC is beyond comparison with that delivered by the vast majority of computers on the market, enough to appeal to demanding users, whether they are gamers or creators.
The heart of this computer supports the GeForce RTX 3070 well in games and guarantees much faster processing than with a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8/16 GB DDR4. We particularly feel the difference in areas that are greedy in CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
Storage is logically entrusted to an SSD because it ensures much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we take advantage, for example, of games / software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Because an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent. Here the SSD offers a capacity similar to the standard of hard disks, i.e. 512 GB.
If more space is needed, an M.2 slot is free to add a second SSD. We can also obviously use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, when it is strongly pushed (eg games, treatments), expect this gaming laptop designed to play and create to be heard and warm.
