Exactly after 365 days, Lenovo is updating the ThinkPad series T14, T15, L14 and L15 again: © www.de24.news The  models of the 2021 year at Intel switch from the 10th to the 11th generation Core and at AMD from Ryzen 4000 Pro to Ryzen 5000 – but officially without pro additions. All models stay at 16: 9.

According to Lenovo, the most successful ThinkPad series, the T series, has been switched to Intel’s 11th generation Core Tiger Lake CPUs across the entire portfolio, while with AMD Ryzen 5000, only the T14 and T14s are being reissued . In the last generation, the T15 was only available with CPUs from Intel.

© www.de24.news The  following data sheets do not yet reveal which CPU models are used, but it is already evident that AMD Ryzen 5000 (test) and not Ryzen 5000 Pro is used. However, it can be doubted that this will really happen – the OEM is probably just waiting for AMD to present the PRO SKUs. At Intel there is definitely the vPro version with additional security and virtualization functions, which are particularly important in the corporate environment.

For models with Intel Core, the switch to Tiger Lake goes hand in hand with the switch from Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 4 on the USB Type-C port. This year, for the first time, the T14 with AMD Ryzen 5000 also features the UHD display option with a maximum of 500 cd / m², which was previously reserved for Intel. For both the AMD and Intel variants, Lenovo promises significantly longer battery runtimes with the same battery capacity.

Like so many notebooks of the time, the new ThinkPads of the T-series will not appear parallel to the presentation, the new generation will be available from April (Intel) and May (AMD). With the AMD versions, the entry-level prices drop by 50 euros each, with the Intel versions that’s the case with the T14s. © www.de24.news The  T15, on the other hand, starts immediately from 1,379 euros instead of the previous 999 euros.

 The  L14 and L15 are also optionally available with Nvidia GeForce MX450 and not just with the Xe-iGPU of the Tiger Lake CPU. © www.de24.news

 The  battery runtimes suffer from this, at least according to the data sheet, although the AMD versions in the L series without iGPU are growing. Lenovo’s data sheets in the past and especially the last generation of the L and T series were very error-prone.

 The  entry-level prices do not differ either, compared to the last generation they drop by 100 euros each, whereby the smallest configurations should continue to rely on AMD processors in the future.
