Reading: Full blood sharp dragon alone performance ThinkPad E485 evaluation | Full blood Ruilong alone performance ThinkPad E485 Reviews

When it comes to business office, I have to mention the ThinkPad. The iconic little red dot is accompanied by generations of professionals. With excellent quality and unique tonality, it is liked by countless people. If you have to use a word Describe it, most people will think of 'stable', and today's evaluation of the main character ThinkPad E485, I chose to use the word '狠'.

At first glance, I saw the ThinkPad E485. Is there a feeling of deja vu? Yes, it uses the same set of molds as the previously released ThinkPad E480, but there is a fundamental difference between them, because the ThinkPad E485 is equipped with the new AMD Ruilong mobile. The processor, after the core change, it is like a restrained Fauvism, full of blood.

Face value: constant tough style

Why do business people love the ThinkPad series notebooks? Because of the classics.

The recognition of the ThinkPad has not changed for more than 20 years. From the first to today, you can see at a glance that this is a ThinkPad notebook, which is what they keep and inherit. ThinkPad's LOGO is like a quiet beautiful man. Lying in the upper left corner of the top cover, that touch of red is a bit of a pen. In the eyes of many newcomers, this is perfect.

The ThinkPad E485 body design is derived from the classic ThinkPad style of the ThinkPad. The outer casing is made of engineering plastic, which has a good feel and good toughness.

Interface, ThinkPad E485 is equipped with a USB Type-C interface, 2 USB 3.0 interfaces, 1 USB 2.0 interface, 1 HDMI interface, 1 RJ45 network port, and a Micro SD card reader, to meet the daily office Expand the demand.

Details: Will pragmatically stick to the end

The narrow border has become the basic feature of the current notebook. The ThinkPad E485 is equipped with a 14-inch 1920×1080 resolution IPS screen, and the left and right borders are reduced to 6.9mm. The edge-enhanced design enhances the impact resistance and provides a broad visual experience.

The shaft can be opened and closed 180 degrees, the damping is moderate, and it can be opened with one hand, no need to worry about durability, because the design has experienced 30,000 opening and closing tests.

This IPS has a large viewing angle, high brightness, and anti-glare treatment on the surface, which can meet the multi-view display requirements of office users.

Front array microphone and 720P resolution camera, network video voice is enough.

Keyboard: Still so comfortable

What is the most important thing about business notebooks? For a text worker like me, I care more about the feel of the keyboard. To put it bluntly, it is fast typing. Why do many colleagues abandon the MacBook? I have been watching the ThinkPad for years. I feel like X. X-shaped support Stable, drum-shaped structure and 1.8mm keyway provide excellent resilience, and the keycap smile curve fits the finger, providing a more comfortable and accurate tapping experience during efficient input. It also has splash-proof properties.

The touchpad area is getting bigger and bigger, the hand feels comfortable and smooth, supports multi-touch, and with Win10, it can bring a smooth and diverse control experience.

In order to ensure the heat dissipation effect, ThinkPad E485 introduces Black Cool black cooling technology, inner wall copper powder sintering heat pipe process to improve CPU/GPU heat conduction efficiency. Slim fan blade, thickness is only 0.3mm, upgrade Heat dissipation air volume. In addition, multi-angle blade design, effectively reduce noise to less than 34dB, internal component distribution to avoid high heat-generating area concentration, motherboard full tantalum capacitor configuration.

We performed a full-load double-bake test on the evaluation prototype. It can be seen from the image generated by the infrared thermometer that at room temperature of 30 °C, the high temperature area is mainly concentrated on the right side of the keyboard, the front is up to 48.5 degrees, and the back air outlet is 53.0 degrees, but the noise is not big, it does not affect the normal use. If there are conditions, the summer still has to be a cooling base, other seasons are not necessary, after all, we are in abuse.


Performance: beyond imagination

The evaluation we got is a high version of the ThinkPad E485, AMD Ryzen5 2500U processor, 16GB DDR4 memory, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD hard drive combination. ThinkPad E485 is also the first in the ThinkPad family equipped with AMD Ruilong mobile processor .

As usual, Master Lu ran a point first, and 151,934 points exceeded my expectations.

A brief look at the basic specifications of the Ryzen 5 2500U, which is a 4-core 8-thread APU with a base frequency of 2.0GHz, an acceleration frequency of 3.6GHz, 8 Vega CUs, a GPU maximum frequency of 1100MHz, 2MB L2, 4MB L3, and a default TDP. CTDP 12-25W, supports dual channel DDR4 2400MHz memory.

AMD's Ryzen5 2500U is a low-power mobile processor with built-in graphics card. Its rivals are directly pointing to the Intel Core i5-8250U, because they are all 4-core 8-thread design. The advantage of Ruilong APU is that the default frequency is higher, the main hit The Zen architecture introduces a micro-instruction cache, hierarchical reconstruction of the cache, support for synchronous multi-threading (SMT, each core can support 2 threads), plus a 14nm energy-efficient FinFET process, which is not inferior to Intel's eight-generation Core in overall specifications. .

From some test data, Ryzen5 2500U and Intel Core i5-8250U are the same grade processor. The former also has new intelligent functions such as power optimization, adaptive dynamic spread spectrum, intelligent data prefetch, which can detect CPU temperature. Power consumption and resource usage, real-time operation optimization, to ensure efficient use of processor resources.

AMD Ryzen5 2500U CBR 15 multi-core: 580cb, single core: 111cb

Another advantage of the AMD Ryzen5 2500U is the built-in Vega 8 Graphics graphics card, which provides a more efficient and smooth image rendering and loading experience based on further liberation of CPU computing power. It also supports 4K signal output to meet the needs of ultra-high-definition screens. user.

In order to better understand what the Vega 8 core graphics card is equivalent to, we use 3Dmark, League of Legends, Street Fighter 4, Resident Evil 5 for GPU theoretical performance testing.

From the score of 3DMark, the performance of Vega 8 core graphics card has been catching up with the low-power MX150 alone, which can smoothly run large 3D games.

"League of Legends" and other games that do not require high configuration are even more important.


League of Legends High quality 78FPS


Torchlight 2 High quality 56 frames

The built-in Toshiba SSD hard drive reads 1171MB/s continuously, and the continuous write speed is 572MB/s. The mechanical hard disk has several streets, which can be clearly felt from the boot speed and game loading speed. In order to meet the needs of business users to store data. The ThinkPad E485 uses a hybrid hard drive solution. Yes, there is a 1TB mechanical hard drive that can save movies, photos.

to sum up:

The representative of ThinkPad business notebook, from running points and horizontal comparison can not be seen, AMD Ruilong mobile processor performance is unexpectedly good, CPU performance is comparable to the eight generation i5, and the built-in Vega 8 Graphics graphics card can be fully benchmarked The level of independence, the general high-definition video and online games entertainment can basically get a U. Starting from the CPU built-in GPU, we have been trying to find a notebook product that can do everyday games without a single display, AMD Ruilong mobile processor This has truly achieved this goal. The ThinkPad E485 is such a product with sufficient performance and a business-friendly design that has always been Xiaohe. Outstanding product performance, proven classic business design, civilians who can afford the newcomers Pricing is the three reasons why you choose ThinkPad E485.
