While the Lenovo Legion Slim 5 Gen 9 just made its way to Nepal, the company just refreshed another one of its laptops for the international market. The laptop — or “mobile workstation”, as the company calls it — in question is built for performance and comes with an AMD Ryzen PRO processor. We will further discuss the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 5 (AMD) in this article including its expected price in Nepal.

Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 5 (AMD) Overview

Design and Display

The design of any given laptop series is pretty iconic and usually does not change. Similar is the case for the fifth-generation Lenovo ThinkPad P14s. It comes in an all-black monotone finish with the red TrackPoint in the middle of the keyboard. Additionally, the laptop also boasts the MIL-STD-810H certification for its durability.

On the front, the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 5 (AMD) comes with a 14-inch screen that is available in five different configurations. The highest of which can be an OLED panel with a 2.8K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. This screen is capable of 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut and 400 nits peak brightness. Other than that, you can also get the laptop with an IPS LCD panel with touch support and 500 nits brightness.

Performance

As I mentioned earlier, this laptop packs an AMD Ryzen PRO 8040HS series chipset under its helm. To be more specific, it can either be a Ryzen 5 PRO 8640HS or a Ryzen 7 PRO 8840HS. The former comes with six cores, 12 threads, 16MB L3 cache, 4.9GHz max frequency, and a Radeon 760M integrated GPU. Meanwhile, the latter processor option has eight cores, 16 threads, 16MB L3 cache, 5.1GHz peak clock speed, and a Radeon 780M graphics.
