Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 AMD laptop review: Quiet and efficient workhorse with Ryzen power

Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 AMD laptop review: Quiet and efficient workhorse with Ryzen power

By

Better than the X1 Carbon. Lenovo refuses to offer its X1 models with AMD CPUs – perhaps there is an exclusive contract with Intel. The next best model with the AMD Ryzen 6000 is the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3. Even though it is positioned below the X1 Carbon in Lenovo’s lineup, it is better in many ways.

Lenovo’s lineup for business customers is clearly aligned: The standard laptop for the office is the Lenovo ThinkPad T14 G3. For the executive floor and particularly mobile users, Lenovo offers the significantly more expensive ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10. And if that is too expensive but mobility is still important, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 represents another option that is supposed to combine the best from both models. An advantage compared to the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is that the T14s is also available with AMD processors, such as the AMD Ryzen Pro 6850U included in our test unit today.

Since the T14s G3 always uses the same case, regardless of whether it houses an Intel or AMD processor, this review is a test update. You can find information on the case and design, the equipment, and the input devices in our review of the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 Intel.

Note: The manufacturer may use components from different suppliers including display panels, drives or memory sticks with similar specifications.

The connections are almost identical to those of the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 Intel. The only difference is that instead of two Thunderbolt 4 ports, the ThinkPad T14s G3 AMD offers one USB 4 connection and one USB-C port that supports a maximum of USB 3.2 Gen 2. Both connections can be used for charging via USB-C power delivery, and both also have the DisplayPort alternate mode. To test this, we connected a Thunderbolt 3 eGPU and a Thunderbolt display to the ThinkPad, and both ran without any problems using the USB 4 port.

The communication equipment is identical, except for the WiFi chip: While the T14s G3 Intel has a WiFi module from Intel, the T14s G3 AMD uses a WiFi chip from Qualcomm. The performance specs are almost identical, and both solutions also perform similarly well in the benchmarks.

In terms of the display, there are also many similarities to the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 Intel. The available display options as well as the display model used in our test unit are identical. Even the model numbers of the 14-inch, 16:10 display are the same: MNE007JA1-1. This is a power-saving low-power panel on IPS basis with a WUXGA resolution (1.920 x 1.200).

Lenovo specifies a brightness value of 400 cd/m², but the display of our Intel test unit remained far below that. Fortunately, our ThinkPad T14s G3 AMD test unit does not confirm this result, and at about 379 cd/m² on average, it is much closer to the target value than the T14s G3 Intel, which only offered 301 cd/m².

The DeltaE values are already very low in the state of delivery, and an average of 1.3 in the Calman ColorChecker is very good. Through a calibration with the X-Rite i1Pro 2 Colorimeter, we are even able to further improve the ColorChecker DeltaE value to an excellent 0.7, which corresponds to an accurate color display without any tint. As always, you can download the profile we created from the link above for free.

Lenovo advertises 100% sRGB for the low-power panel, and we measure 99.8%. This means that nothing should prevent you from using it for image processing tasks at a simple level. However, for the display of the wider AdobeRGB and DCI-P3 color spaces, you’d need to use an external display.

The Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 shows itself quite usable outdoors, but this isn’t particularly surprising, since the brightness is relatively high and it offers a matte display surface.

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
23.1 ms … rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined ↗ 10.4 ms rise
↘ 12.7 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 42 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
36.3 ms … rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined ↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 19.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 41 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (35.8 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 19491 (minimum: 5 – maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Lenovo sells the ThinkPad T14s G3 AMD with two different processor options: the AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U and the Ryzen 5 Pro 6650U. There is no dedicated GPU, and you have to use the integrated AMD Radeon, which is more powerful in the Ryzen 7 (Radeon 680M) than in the Ryzen 5 (Radeon 660M). The working memory is soldered in. Lenovo uses the most current LPDDR5-6400 storage. The maximum available is 32 GB, but for less demanding customers, 8 and 16 GB are also offered. As the storage solution, there is an M.2-2280 SSD that is connected via NVMe PCIe 4.0 x4.

Lenovo doesn’t use its own power management software in its ThinkPad laptops, but the performance modes can be selected directly from the Windows Settings. There are three different modes that differ in terms of the power consumption limits (PL2, which is the short-term power limit, and PL1, which is the long-term power limit):

  • Best Power Efficiency: PL2 12 Watt, PL1 12 Watt
  • Balanced: PL2 24 Watt, PL1 16.5 Watt
  • Best Performance: PL2 30 Watt, PL1 24 Watt

We run our performance tests solely using the “Best Performance” mode, and “Balanced” is used during the WiFi battery test.

The AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U is a processor of the Ryzen 6000 generation with the codename “Rembrandt.” This is a Zen3+ chip with a total of 8 cores and 16 threads. The maximum clock speed is 4.7 GHz and the basic clock speed 2.7 GHz. AMD specifies the typical TDP of this CPU as 15 to 28 watts. You can find more extensive benchmark comparisons in our CPU benchmark list.

In the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3, the Ryzen 7 delivers a very good performance. In the multicore benchmarks, the T14s places above all the models from the competitors, even in the performance under constant load. However, the picture changes in the single-core performance, where the current Intel model and also the Apple M2 perform slightly better. In addition, the CPU performance overall is minimally better in the ThinkPad T14 G3 with the same processor.

The CPU performance is not limited in battery operation.

In PCMark 10, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 takes the top spot. While the same is not the case in the CrossMark, the distance to the top is not very large there either. So it is not surprising, that the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 runs very fast and smooth in everyday operation.

The AMD Radeon 680M is an integrated GPU that, just like nearly all present-day iGPUs, does not have a single megabyte of video memory of its own. This RNDA2 GPU in the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 achieves benchmark results that are far ahead of the competitors with Intel GPUs, regardless of whether we look at the 3DMark tests or at our games benchmarks, although we admit that those are less meaningful for a business laptop. What might be more interesting is perhaps Blender v3.3, where the Radeon 680M in the Lenovo ThinkPad runs about twice as fast as the Radeon 660M of the HP EliteBook 845 G9 during the HIP test. With this, the ThinkPad T14s G3 AMD can also be used quite well for rendering.

When we started testing the noise levels of the ThinkPad T14s G3, we first wondered whether the fan was working, since the ThinkPad laptop stayed very quiet. During idle operation, it remains completely quiet throughout, and even our test for average loads does not cause the fan to activate. Only under maximum load, the cooling finally activates, but even then, it remains practically silent at only 27.3 dB(a). All the comparison models without exception show higher fan noise levels.

We do not notice any coil whine in the T14s Gen 3.

Stress test (Prime95 + FurMark)
Stress test (Prime95 + FurMark)

Generally, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 stays very cool, and even under load, almost none of the measurement spots exceeds the 40-degree Celsius mark (104 °F). The one exception is the area in the center of the keyboard around the TrackPoint, where particularly the gap between the keys reaches temperatures in the 47.7 to 49.2 °C (118 – 120 °F) range. On a positive note, the palm rest remains comfortably cool in all cases.

We do not see any throttling at all during the stress test. Even after one hour, the processor is able to keep its long-term power limit of 24 watts.

All the ThinkPad T14s models, regardless of their generation and which processor they use, have a battery capacity of 57 Wh. With this internal battery, the Lenovo laptop achieves a runtime of about 12 hours in the WiFi test at 150 cd/m² display brightness. Interestingly, this is worse than the ThinkPad T14s G2 AMD predecessor, but also significantly longer than the T14s G3 Intel, which lasted less than 10 hours.

Testing the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 AMD, test unit provided by campuspoint
Testing the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 AMD, test unit provided by campuspoint

If there was a corresponding laptop for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon G10 with an AMD CPU, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 AMD would not be far from that. It is the model that comes closest to this idea.

The combination of the AMD Ryzen CPUs of the 6000 series and the T14s platform is a great success. This is a Lenovo laptop that practically doesn’t have any weaknesses, aside from the upgradeability and a few weak points in the low power display. It is relatively light and compact, while at the same time still being robust, due to the combination of light metals and carbon fiber. The ThinkPad T14s G3 offers equipment suitable for businesses including USB 4, very good input devices, and a matte and bright display. The Ryzen 7 Pro delivers a high performance without driving up the power consumption too high. The result is a good battery life and a fan that almost always remains quiet.

Compact, robust, fast, and with a long battery life: the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 AMD has many positive attributes

So it is not surprising that the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3 earns a very good evaluation of around 91%. With that, it is well-positioned in the business market. The hottest competitors come from HP in form of the HP EliteBook 845 G9 and from Dell in form of the Dell Latitude 9430 2-in-1. In the comparison with its competitors, the ThinkPad impresses particularly with its lower weight, longer battery life, and significantly more quiet fans.
