Gamers will appreciate that the display boasts a refresh rate of 144Hz that is higher than the standard 60Hz. This is because the overall fluidity is enhanced, including in games.
For the rest, the screen adopts classic specifications such as standard colorimetry, the 16:9 format suitable for video playback and the Full HD definition. Fortunately, both horizontal and vertical viewing angles are important thanks to IPS technology.
Thanks to its anti-glare coating, the screen also ensures better visibility than a glossy panel in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).

Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 (82XV00LCFR) performance, battery life

The Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 (82XV00LCFR) is for those looking for a versatile 15-inch PC that performs well in gaming and creating.

Built around a Core i7-13620H Intel Raptor Lake processor with 10 hybrid cores and integrated Iris Xe graphics and 16GB of RAM, this versatile laptop delivers solid all-round performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users.

We are clearly thinking of the creators because this core guarantees much faster processing than a classic Quad/Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4/5. The difference is especially noticeable in CPU- and RAM-intensive areas that take advantage of multi-core, such as photo editing, 3D rendering, or video editing.

Creatives will be all the more delighted as the GeForce RTX 4050 dedicated graphics card accelerates multimedia processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas, VSDC or the Adobe suite.

In practice, the GeForce RTX 4050 is used by NVIDIA Optimus technology to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Intel Iris Xe.

Whether with the Iris Xe or the GeForce RTX 4050, you can watch photos and videos, but also play light to modest games. The low power consumption of the Iris Xe, which is much less powerful, favours the autonomy which is around 4 hours on battery in light use.

Depending on the needs, Optimus automatically switches between the Intel Iris Xe and the GeForce RTX 4050 in real time.

Gamers will appreciate being able to indulge in the latest games thanks to the GeForce RTX 4060 ray tracing with NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture.

Lenovo offers scalable storage for this configuration that houses 2 M.2 SSD slots. One of them is a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in line with the standard for hard drives.

On a daily basis, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive because it is much faster. In addition, an SSD is quieter, more energy-efficient, and more resistant to shocks.

Game/software launches are much faster with an SSD than with an HDD, as are processing and booting/shutting down. And you get to the maps of online games, for example, faster.

Finally, expect some heating and noise from this versatile multimedia-oriented gaming laptop when pushed hard (e.g. games, processing).
