Performance, battery life of Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15ACH6 (82K201MEFR)
The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 15ACH6 (82K201MEFR) is for those looking to invest in a versatile 15-inch gaming laptop that focuses on creativity.
The latest games can run on this creative gaming laptop because it has a dedicated high-end GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere graphics card.
In addition to gamers, the GeForce RTX 3060 is also interesting for creators because it speeds up processing under software that takes advantage of the computing power of the GPU, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop / Premiere.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing is automatically activated / deactivated and in real time with Optimus technology to perform graphic work that is considered too heavy for the Radeon Vega 7.
The Radeon Vega 7 directly integrated with the AMD Ryzen 5 Cezanne Hexa Core processor allows, like the GeForce RTX 3060, to view photos and videos. Its low energy consumption is in favor of any case of autonomy built around 6 hours of battery in light use.
The Radeon Vega 7 takes place on the AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Cezanne Hexa Core Ryzen 5 5600H processor which speeds up processing compared to the Quad Core in areas that consume CPU resources using multi-core, such as editing video or photo editing.
The Ryzen 5 Hexa Core is here together with 8 GB of standard RAM that can be increased if needed to be more comfortable in multitasking and under processing. In any case, we get good overall performance that can satisfy many users.
Lenovo relies on the storage of a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to that offered by hard drives as standard. If more space is needed, a second SSD can be added via the free M.2 slot. Or rely on an external storage unit such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
In any case, an SSD is quiet but also uses less energy than a hard drive, which is more stable and faster.
Undeniable advantages, therefore, which are demonstrated on a daily basis through greater responsiveness and fluidity. Thus, thanks to the SSD, the launch of games / software is much faster, as well as the processing and start / stop for example, and we reach the cards in online games faster.
Finally, this creative gaming laptop PC is audible and heats up under heavy load (eg gaming, treatment).
If necessary, a ventilated support can be added to this versatile laptop designed for gaming and production to limit temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
