With the approaching market launch of the Ryzen 4000 ThinkPads, Lenovo has recently announced two more models: Lenovo ThinkPad E14 and ThinkPad E15 AMD Ryzen CPU. These two ThinkPad Lenovo laptops appeared a few months ago with Intel CPUs. Lenovo does not have the most powerful AMD Ryzen processor, but at least it has the second most powerful Renoir processor.
Lenovo’s Ryzen lineup is growing with the two ThinkPads: The Lenovo ThinkPad E14 and the Lenovo ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 are now also available with an AMD Ryzen 4000.
ThinkPad E14 and ThinkPad E15 appeared at the beginning of the year, but only with Intel processors. The affordable ThinkPad laptops were already available with AMD processors in 2019, at that time under the names ThinkPad E495 and ThinkPad E595.
Due to the lack of AMD versions of the E14 and E15 so far, there has been speculation that Lenovo will discontinue this series. Lenovo puts a stop to this with the announcement.
Like the Intel versions, the ThinkPad E14 AMD and ThinkPad E15 AMD have a revised, more compact design compared to the E495 and E595. However, in return both lose a RAM slot, so that the maximum RAM expansion is only 32 GB instead of 64 GB. In addition, the main memory only runs in single-channel mode.
The AMD Ryzen ThinkPads will probably correspond to the iGPU version in terms of the cooling system. The AMD Ryzen 7 4700U is offered as the most powerful processor in the Lenovo ThinkPad E14 and E15.
Price and availability
The Lenovo ThinkPad E14 AMD price is starting from $620 for the standard model with Ryzen 3 4300U, 4GB RAM, and 256GB M.2 SSD and it can be pre-ordered through the Bhphotovideo.com store.
And the Lenovo ThinkPad E15 AMD price starts from $699 for the model with Ryzen 5 4500U, 8GB RAM, and 256GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD and it can also be available to buy via the Bhphotovideo.com store.
Lenovo recently launched the IdeaPad Slim 7 GTX with a six-core processor from Intel, GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, 15-inch IPS FHD display, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 512GB of internal memory.
