Gaming PC with GeForce RTX 3060: Lenovo Legion T5 26AMR5 in the test

table of contents
Not everyone screws their own PC together. Some people prefer to buy the hardware with a functional guarantee from a single source. And because of the overpriced graphics cards, a complete gaming PC is currently not such a bad idea, as it is usually sold without the horrendous price premium for the graphics card. Even before the official start of sales of the Ryzen 7 5700G with integrated graphics to PC hobbyists, complete PCs with this eight-core combination processor were available to buy. In the Legion T5 26AMR5, Lenovo combines it with a GeForce RTX 3060. That is still incredibly expensive individually. In combination with the aforementioned processor, 16 GB DDR4 RAM and a fast NVMe SSD with 512 GB capacity, the price of 1199 euros for the Legion T5 26AMR5 sounds so tempting that we struck it. We published a test of the AMD APU in July 2021, and there was also a test of the GeForce RTX 3060. By choosing the 5700G, the entire system including the graphics card is limited to PCI Express 3.0, but this has no noticeable effect on normal operation. Lenovo wraps the Legion T5 in a black midi tower sheet metal dress and gives it a standard mouse and keyboard for the USB port – so there is not much to be felt about its gaming suitability. Even with the first start-up, despite the LED-illuminated Legion logo on the T5 front, there is still disillusionment, because a suitable operating system must first be installed for the desired gaming fun. We opted for Windows 10 among the majority of gamers, which brought drivers for all components. Gamers should install the latest GeForce drivers from the Nvidia homepage.
