Description

As usual, Lenovo delivers a great keyboard: the buttons deliver a great balance between the snappiness required for gaming and the softness needed for longer typing sessions. The buttons are fast and consistent, too. The layout is solid: there’s a numberpad, and the full-size cursor keys are separated from the rest of the unit. This configuration on hand comes with an RTX 3070, although you can also get the 3060 or 3050 if you want to save some money. This top GPU has 8GB of VRAM, which should be plenty, especially considering the screen is only FHD. The new Legion 5 15 Gen.6 is once again a good gaming laptop with a comparatively low price and powerful components. The new AMD processor Ryzen 7 5800H offers plenty of performance and it is also very efficient. The combination with the fast 130W version of the GeForce RTX 3060 ensures high gaming performance. We also like the fast 165 Hz display with the 1080p resolution. Finally, here’s how things change when I swapped out the default RAM for my 32GB RAM kit. Note that this is with the GPU OC as well: The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 is an entry-level GPU that can push around 60 fps at 1080p with low settings. The RTX 3050 is faster than the GTX 1650 and will let you run graphically demanding games at high settings while still maintaining around 60 fps or slightly more. The RTX 3050Ti performs only about 10% better than the RTX 3050 on average; however, the RTX 3060 is much faster, giving you a 35% to 40% performance boost over the RTX 3050. The RTX 3070 is the top-end configuration and will give you roughly a 15% performance increase over the RTX 3060 on average, though it can be more in VRAM-heavy scenarios. Finally, the AMD Radeon RX 6600M is roughly equivalent to the RTX 3060; it'll perform a little better or worse depending on each game's optimization.

Finally, I’ll mention that camera at the top of the screen. It’s HD-only and washed-out quality even in good light, but at least it’s there and can do that job when needed. This comes with an electronic shutter on the left side of the laptop, which electronically kills both the camera and the microphones, and not just covers the lens with a piece of plastic. Battery life All in all, the Legion 5 is one of the best-value mid-tier laptops of this generation, and a potential recommendation in this 3060 configuration over here in Europe where it’s very aggressively priced. That’s not the case everywhere, though, as the same configuration is expensive in other regions.

Lenovo went with consistent inputs across their entire range of Legion laptops, and that means little has been sacrificed on what is the entry-level Legion 5 series. Battery: These systems do not support batteries that are not genuine Lenovo-made or authorised. Systems will continue to boot, but may not charge unauthorised batteries. Lenovo has no responsibility for the performance or safety of unauthorised batteries, and provides no warranties for failures or damage arising out of their use. **Battery life is based on the MobileMark® 2014 methodology and is an estimated maximum. Actual battery life may vary based on many factors, including screen brightness, active applications, features, power management settings, battery age and conditioning, and other customer preferences. Our Lenovo Legion 5 has an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 (95W) dedicated GPU, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of storage. If you need better multi-thread performance, you can upgrade the CPU to an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, which has more cores and threads. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 is the lowest-end GPU option and can provide a 60 fps gaming experience at 1080p, though you'll have to play at low settings in most games. The RTX 3050 and 3050Ti are very similar and will get you around or slightly above 60 fps with medium or high settings, with the 3050Ti being only marginally better. The RTX 3060 is faster than the RTX 3050, providing a 35 to 40% performance boost over the RTX 3050. The AMD Radeon RX 6600M is roughly the equivalent of an RTX 3060; the performance will vary depending on each game's optimization. The RTX 3070 is the highest-end GPU available and the best option to pair with the QHD 165Hz display.

Pretty good results and it’s exactly what I was expecting, considering the plethora of Legion laptops I have reviewed in the past couple of months. The aluminium body feels reassuringly solid and the laptop’s lid has very little flex to it. I like the way the hinge has been calibrated so that you can open it with just one hand, too. The screen is ok on this model. It’s bright enough and has decent contrast. The viewing angles are also good, although there is a little bit of light shift when you hit the moderate angles. It’s not distracting at all when looking at it head-on. Finally, the CPUs run at ~25 W on battery as well, on the Balanced profile, with the fans still at <32 dB. The CPU performance on the battery is roughly what the system delivers on the Quiet mode when plugged in.
