2020 Lenovo ThinkPad E15 (AMD Ryzen) : First Look!

The newly launched 2020 Lenovo ThinkPad E15 laptop is powered by the latest AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile APU, with built-in Radeon graphics.

Let’s dive into its key features and specifications, as well as its starting price and availability!

 

2020 Lenovo ThinkPad E15 (AMD Ryzen) : MIL-SPEC Business Laptop!

The new 2020 Lenovo ThinkPad E15 is a second-generation model built around the latest AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile APU, with built-in Radeon graphics. But that’s not all…

ThinkPad Keyboard + TrackPoint

Fans of the ThinkPad keyboard and TrackPoint will naturally be glad to know they are both part of the ThinkPad E15.

On top of that, it comes with a larger touchpad that now meets the Microsoft Precision TouchPad (PTP) standard.

8th Gen Owl Wing Fan

The AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile APU is kept cool by the 8th Generation Lenovo Owl Wing Fan, which delivers 38% more airflow, for 15% better cooling performance.

On top of that, the Owl Wing Fan is designed to minimise dust accumulation, which means it will maintain its performance over years of use.

Smaller + Lighter

Compared to the last-generation, the 2020 ThinkPad E15 is smaller in size, and lighter in weight. But it still sports the same 15.6-inch display.

The difference is the smaller bezels – just 7.7 mm at the sides, giving it an 85% screen-to-body ratio.

12 MIL-SPEC Certifications

The 2020 ThinkPad E15 may be an entry-level business laptop in Lenovo’s stable, but it is still certified for no less than twelve MIL-SPEC certifications. This ensures that the laptop will keep on running, even if you may not…

AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile : Major Consumer Kick-Off In 2020!

AMD just kicked off a major consumer roll-out of the AMD Ryzen 4000 family of mobile processors!

Join us for AMD’s official consumer tech briefing, and compare the full stack of Ryzen 4000 consumer and PRO mobile processors!

 

AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile : Major Consumer Kick-Off In 2020!

The AMD Ryzen 4000 family of mobile processors was first unveiled at CES 2020, but its major roll-out got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To take on Intel’s considerable control of the laptop market, AMD prepared a formidable stack of 14 mobile processors – all with integrated Vega graphics.

To kick-off their 2020 assault on Intel’s mobile market stronghold, AMD lined up these laptops with their partners :

  • ASUS G14 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA + AMD FreeSync
  • ASUS G15 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA + AMD FreeSync
  • MSI Bravo : Ryzen 4000 H-series + Radeon RX 5500M + AMD FreeSync
  • Lenovo Legion 5 : Ryzen 4000 H-series + NVIDIA
  • Dell G5 15 SE : Ryzen 4000 H-series + Radeon RX 5600M + AMD FreeSync + AMD SmartShift

Recommended : AMD Radeon RX 5700M | RX 5600M : A Quick Primer!

 

AMD SmartShift : A Special Mention!

AMD SmartShift is a new technology that gives the new AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors better performance – up to 10% in games, and 12% in content creation.

It is basically a smart power distribution technique that dynamically improves CPU or GPU performance with a limited power budget.

For more details, we recommend reading AMD SmartShift Explained : Smart Power Distribution FTW!

Unfortunately, it’s not launching in all Ryzen 4000 laptops, only the Dell G5 15 SE at this time. So if you want to take advantage of this new AMD technology, we highly recommend you check out the Dell G5 15 SE.

AMD SmartShift Explained : Smart Power Distribution FTW!

At CES 2020, AMD announced their SmartShift technology that debuts in the Ryzen 4000 Mobile processors.

What is AMD SmartShift, and how does it work? Let’s find out!

 

AMD SmartShift : What Is It?

AMD SmartShift is a new technology that is being introduced with the new AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile processor family.

It can be simply described as a smart power distribution technique, to dynamically improve CPU or GPU performance with a limited power budget.

 

How Does AMD SmartShift Work?

In a typical laptop, the CPU and GPU each have their own pre-defined power budget.

The CPU and GPU will individually adjust their power consumption according to the load, using less power for a longer battery life, but never exceeding their power budget even when there is a need for more performance.

AMD SmartShift changes that by simply doing away with the pre-defined power budget, and using a shared power budget instead.

When you are running CPU-intensive tasks, it lets the Ryzen CPU take up more of the power budget, improving its performance.

But when you start up a game, AMD SmartShift lets the Radeon GPU take up more of the power budget, for better gaming performance.

Ultimately, SmartShift lets you squeeze out more performance from the CPU and GPU for a limited power budget.

 

The Performance Impact

According to AMD, SmartShift will deliver up to 10% better gaming performance, and up to 12% better content creation performance.

This was based on their internal tests using the AMD Ryzen 4800H mobile processor, coupled with the AMD Radeon RX 5600M GPU.

 

AMD SmartShift : How To Get It

AMD SmartShift is built into the new AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile processor family, but also requires the laptop to have a separate AMD Radeon Graphics GPU.

It also works only with the recently-launched AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition driver.
