Product Overview

Lenovo ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 with AMD is a 15.6-inch business laptop powered by AMD Ryzen 4000 U-series processors. Released with the E15 Gen 1 (powered by Intel), the E15 Gen 2 with AMD is the successor to the E595, despite the naming.
An entry-level model, the E15 Gen 2 with AMD is nevertheless tested against military-grade requirements for durability like all ThinkPad models. It offers most of the optional features found in the Intel-powered variant, though more storage space, memory, and FIDO (Fast Identity Online) authentication are supported as a tradeoff for the missing Thunderbolt 4 port.
Lenovo also markets a 14-inch E14 Gen 2 powered by either Intel or AMD.

Sentiment Score 61%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The ThinkPad E15 Gen.2 is powered by the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U processor. It is twice as fast as the E15 with a Core i7 CPU in the multi-core benchmarks. Under load, the bottom of the device becomes too hot to touch. The E15 is unfit for any sort of professional photo/video editing.

The Intel Core i7-10510U is a Comet Lake processor with four cores and a clock rate of 1.8 to 4.8 GHz. The CPU is not throttled when it runs on battery power. In the PCMark benchmarks, the Lenovo ThinkPad E15 performs well. In everyday use, the performance is flawless, too.
