Lenovo goes AMD for ThinkPads

AMD’s faster and cheaper Intel equivalents will now be an option to choose from the Lenovo ThinkPad line-up.

Lenovo has announced the new ThinkPad E14 and E15, which feature AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processors with Radeon Graphics. The ThinkPad T, X and L series notebooks can also be powered by AMD Ryzen Pro 4000 Series Mobile Processors. 

In addition to updated processors, the ThinkPad E series devices have an improved screen to body ratio of 85%. The E series ThinkPads have new security features, like a fingerprint reader and an optional IR camera with Glance by Mirametrix technology. The fingerprint reader is integrated into the power button to offer one touch power and logon. The software-enabled Glance feature responds to users’ presence, and automatically locks the laptop when the user steps away. 

The E series features Harman branded speakers with Dolby Audio software, dual array far field microphones, and Microsoft Teams or Skype for Business hot keys integrated into the ThinkPad keyboard.  

ThinkPad E14 and E15 gives users powerful AMD Ryzen 4000 Series processing power with durability and business critical productivity and security features.
