Lenovo Legion 7 16IAX7 laptop review: Fast 16-inch gamer with 165 Hz display

Intel HX-CPU and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. The Lenovo Legion 7 16 offers everything that gamers desire. In addition to the fastest mobile processor from Intel, there is also the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and a fast 165 Hz display. The cooling system also manages to keep the hardware cool, but at 4,499 Euros (~US$ 4,500), the high-end gamer is by no means a bargain.

Andreas Osthoff, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (translated by Jacob Fisher), 🇩🇪

The Legion 7 16 is Lenovo’s gaming flagship in a 16-inch format and offers everything that is currently available on the market: an Intel HX CPU, a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, a WQHD panel with 165 Hz, and up-to-date PCIe 4.0 SSDs. However, this also comes at a price, as Lenovo charges the hefty sum of 4,500 Euros (~US$4,500) for the high-end gamer. In this review, we compare the new Legion 7 16 to the gaming competition, which mainly consists of 17-inch models, and also to the Legion 7 16 with AMD hardware.

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

With its silver-gray aluminum chassis, the Legion 7 16 is visually rather discreet for such a powerful gaming laptop. We really like the restrained design and the stability is excellent. Neither the base unit nor the display lid can be dented or twisted, and creaking noises are completely absent. The screen’s edges are very thin and the device looks very modern.

Although the screen hinge is slightly offset at the front, it allows for a maximum opening angle of 180 degrees. The display can also be easily opened with one hand and teetering is not an issue. Selective pressure applications of pressure did not result in any image distortions. 

The discreet appearance quickly becomes a thing of the past as soon as the extensive case lighting comes on. In addition to a circumferential light bar in the front area of the base unit, light effects also come out of all fan grills and the Legion logo on the lid is also illuminated. A total of seven different profiles are available, but you can also adjust everything manually.

Together with the two 16-inch models from Asus, the Legion 7 16 is one of the most compact models in the comparison field. At 2.6 kg, it is not a lightweight in itself, but most competitors are a little heavier here as well. However, you shouldn’t forget the bulky 300-watt power adapter, which is heavier than some ultrabooks at more than one kilogram.

The Legion offers plenty of up-to-date interfaces, most of which are located on the back. On the base unit’s upper side are helpful labels that make plugging in cables much easier. We would have liked a standard USB-A port on the sides (e.g. for USB sticks) as well as a card reader, for which there is actually plenty of space.

In addition to the fast 2.5 Gbit/s Ethernet port, the Legion 7 16 also offers a very modern WLAN module (Wi-Fi 6E) which includes support for modern 6 GHz networks as well as Bluetooth 5.2. In our standardized WLAN test with our Asus reference router, the Killer AX1675i achieves very high and stable transfer rates, and we were able to connect to the 6 GHz network without any problems.

Lenovo installs a 1080p webcam in the upper display frame, which can be deactivated with a switch on the right side of the case. Image quality is slightly better than the 720p modules. Overall, the webcam serves its purpose. There is no IR sensor for facial recognition via Windows Hello.

The baseplate is fastened with six Phillips screws and still remains very tight after loosening the screws, which is why it is best to use a suction cup to loosen the baseplate. Inside, the fans can be cleaned and you have access to the two RAM slots, the WLAN module and the two M.2-2280 SSD slots. However, additional covers have to be removed for this, some of which are also screwed.

The keyboard with the dedicated numeric keypad offers decent quality overall with sufficient key travel, but there is still room for improvement. The keys sometimes seem a little rickety, while the space bar and Enter key are relatively loud. Other gaming laptops are slightly better here. There is no criticism for the keyboard illumination, which can be configured individually for each key and you can let your creativity run wild here.

The large ClickPad (12 x 7.5 cm) is slightly offset to the left in the base unit and the normal pointer control works perfectly. The noise is only quite loud when clicking the lower area. Most users will use an external mouse for gaming anyway.

Lenovo installs a 16-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2560×1600 and a matte surface, which offers very good subjective picture quality. Movements are very smooth thanks to the high refresh rate, all content is displayed very sharply and even bright surfaces do not look grainy at all. The panel also offers very fast response times and we did not detect any PWM flickering. HDR content and G-Sync are also supported.

Lenovo specifies a brightness of 500 cd/m², which is even exceeded by our review sample with an average of 523 cd/m². However, the black value of 0.44 is comparatively high, which is why the contrast ratio is “only” ~1,200:1. Of course, other display technologies such as OLED or mini-LED have an advantage here. You can also see slight halos on a dark background at full brightness, but this should not be a problem in practice.

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.

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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19773 (minimum: 5 – maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

You probably won’t use a heavy 16-inch notebook outdoors very often, but thanks to the good brightness and the matte screen, the Legion 7 16 can nonetheless be used in bright environments. The viewing angle stability of the IPS panel is very good.

Lenovo offers three different performance profiles with the preinstalled Vantage software, which can be switched either via software or the Fn+Q key combination. The activated mode is very conveniently indicated by the illumination of the power button (white = Balanced, blue = Quiet, red = Performance). We have listed the respective TDP/TGP settings in the following table.

Mode CPU load GPU load Stress test Max. fan noise
Quiet 113 watts 64 watts CPU: 86 watts


GPU: 42 watts
39 dB(A)
Balanced 121 watts 115 watts CPU: 86 watts


GPU: 115 watts
48,8 dB(A)
Performance 165 -> 136 watts 115 watts CPU: 94 watts


GPU: 150 watts
54,2 dB(A)

Additionally, the graphics mode can be switched in the Vantage software and you can set it so that only the dedicated graphics card should be used. This did not have a major impact in our random tests, which is why we carried out the measurements and benchmarks with the preset hybrid GPU mode in combination with Performance mode. However, Performance mode is not available in battery mode.

The Core i9-12900HX is currently Intel’s fastest mobile processor, based on the desktop chips of the Alder Lake S class. There are 8 performance cores, including hyperthreading and 8 efficiency cores, so the chip can process a total of 24 threads simultaneously. Consumption peaks at up to 165 watts and then quickly levels off at 136 watts, which enables excellent results in the benchmarks. The Core i9 is not particularly efficient, but the advantage over the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX in the Legion 7 16 of the same build is an average of 39 percent in all our CPU tests. In addition, the review device is on a par with larger 17-inch models that are also equipped with the Core i9-12900HX.

Performance remains completely stable even under prolonged load, but consumption quickly levels off at around 40 watts in battery mode, which corresponds to a performance loss of a whopping 75% in the multi-core tests. More CPU benchmarks are available here.

Our subjective performance impression of the Legion 7 16 is excellent, which is hardly surprising given the components. The good results in the synthetic tests confirm this impression: The review device is one of the fastest devices on the market. No problems occurred during testing either.

GPU-Z GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
GPU-Z GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is currently the fastest mobile graphics card and runs with a TGP of up to 180 watts in the Legion 7 16. The maximum core clock is 1,590 MHz and the graphics memory is 16 GB. Performance is excellent in the synthetic benchmarks and overall just under 10% ahead of the average results for the RTX 3080 Ti in our database. However, the Radeon RX 6850M XT is only marginally slower in the synthetic tests.

In addition to hybrid mode, which automatically activates the Nvidia GPU under load, you can also completely disable the integrated graphics card for slightly more performance, although this requires a restart. 

Graphics performance remains stable even during longer load. However, the GPU is only allowed to consume a maximum of 45 watts on battery power, which is why GPU performance drops by 75% when disconnected from the power supply. More GPU benchmarks are available here.

… smaller is better

The gaming performance of the Legion 7 16 is very good, as expected. Even demanding titles such as Cyberpunk 2077 still run smoothly in native QHD resolution. Overall, the results are very good, but in many cases the Radeon RX 6850M XT is not far behind and is considerably cheaper. On the other hand, gaming performance takes a massive drop when the Legion is disconnected from the power socket. Witcher 3, for example, only ran at 30 FPS for 55 minutes in ultra settings.

The cooling system of the Legion 7 16 consists of a vapor chamber and two fans. The two fans are often inactive when the laptop is idle, but they also start up from time to time and you can hear a slight hissing noise. As soon as the processor or the GPU is placed under stress, the laptop becomes quickly and noticeably loud. Depending on the game, you can use Quiet mode to test whether the game still runs smoothly on the desired settings. Users can play without headphones up to around 40 dB(A), but not in the other two modes. Here we measured between 46 and 49 dB(A) in Witcher 3 and even up to 54 dB(A) in the stress test. The fans continue to run for a few minutes at around 32 dB(A) after the load is stopped. No other electronic noises were registered.

… smaller is better

Since the fans are deactivated when the laptop is idle, the surfaces in the rear area heat up noticeably, but this does not result in any limitations. However, you should not place the device on your thighs when gaming, for we measured temperatures of up to 60 °C on the underside. The keyboard area also heats up considerably at 45 °C, which is also noticeable, but apart from slightly warmer fingers, continued typing poses no issue. 

In the stress test, the processor quickly levels off at ~93 watts and the graphics card at ~150 watts. These values also remain stable throughout the test.

Despite the large case, Lenovo only installs two stereo speakers (2x 2 watts), which are acceptable in terms of sound but nothing special. The speakers are not the best for gaming anyway, so users should use headphones. When manufacturers install sound systems with 4 or 6 modules into compact ultrabooks, you should expect better speakers, even in a flagship gaming laptop.

The Legion 7 16 is not a particularly economical notebook. Even in idle, we measured more than 25 watts. When gaming, you can expect around 250 watts, and is even slightly above 300 watts for a short time in the stress test. The included 300-watt power supply is thus just sufficient, but leaves no room for battery charging in cases of extreme load.

Although Lenovo installs the largest possible battery with 99.99 Wh, the components simply require a lot of power and even with active graphics switching, the runtimes are limited to a maximum of 4-5 hours in practice. Under load, the laptop is out of juice after just one hour despite reduced performance. At least the battery is recharged quickly with the 300-watt power adapter, especially when the express charging function is active. It then takes just 71 minutes before the battery is fully recharged when the device is switched on.

In review: Lenovo Legion 7 16IAX7. Review device provided by Lenovo Germany.

The new Lenovo Legion 7 is a very good gaming notebook that, despite its comparatively compact compact 16-inch case, does not have to do without the most powerful components. Thanks to good cooling, no compromises are made in terms of performance. Both the Core i9-12900HX and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti perform at a very high level. However, this comes at a price: considering the performance of the much cheaper AMD model, this inevitably raises the question of the price-performance ratio, which is no longer particularly good at 4,500 Euros (~US$ 4,500).

A better panel would have also been desirable for this price. There is no question that the matte WQHD panel with 165 Hz is very suitable for gaming, but an OLED or mini-LED display would have been even better. The keyboard also has room for improvement.

Full power ahead: Lenovo combines the fastest components on the market in the Legion 7 16 and installs them in a stylish aluminum case with extensive lighting. However, the top model is also very expensive at an RRP of 4,500 Euros (~US$ 4,500).

The AMD models of the Legion 7 16 have a big advantage in terms of price-performance ratio, but competing 17-inch devices with comparable equipment (Intel HX CPU, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti) are not really cheaper either.

Users are advised to check directly via Lenovo’s website from their location (where applicable). We found, for example, that the Lenovo Legion 7 16 is available in the UK (£2,515.99), France (2,829.65€), the USA ($2,094.39), Singapore (SG$3,047.50) and India (₹237,595).

These represent the starting prices; users wanting more powerful components will be required to pay more. US readers should note that the model linked here is the AMD variant, not the Intel, which does not yet appear to be available in the US.

Note: This list is not exhaustive. Prices are as of 16.09.22 and subject to change.
