With much focus being delivered toward its general line of products and some quirky concepts, Lenovo also has some announcements for its gaming division Legion.
First up is the powerhouse Legion Pro 7 (7i) with a set of refreshed 13th Gen Intel / AMD Ryzen 7000 series mobile processor to pair with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series Laptop GPU (RTX 4070/4080/4090) and all of these are cooled by the ColdFront 5.0 with Hybrid Thermals design with little to no thermal throttling even if the total power draw topping out at 235W. The special AI chip mentioned in the title is the Lenovo LA AI powering the Lenovo AI Engine+ for higher efficiency in terms of performance-per-watt ratio while the display can be configured up to 2560×1600 240Hz.
For the battery, it is going for the borderline limit of 99.99WHr with everything housed in an Onyx Grey chassis. If the Pro 7 is too large for you, there’s the Pro 5 (5i) with almost identical specs for a more compact form factor.
Taking a little small detour to the prebuilt desktop side, the refreshed Legion Tower 7i and Tower 5 (5i) are just your usual and expected updates – 13th Gen Intel / AMD Ryzen 7000 + NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 / AMD Radeon RX 7000, up to 64GB DDR5-5600 RAM, a maximum of 6TB PCIe storage – all powered by a 1200W PSU to make any sorts of power surge being fully included within the power budget.
There are also a couple of new Legion gaming monitors coming in which are the Legion Y27qf-30 and Y27f-30. The former is set to have a 240Hz of refresh rate with 0.5ms of response time at 1440p resolution, 125% sRGB and 95% DCI-P3 color gamut, 10bit-colors, Delta E<2 color accuracy, and VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified. For the latter, it is a 1080p screen with 240Hz (OC 280Hz) refresh rate, AMD FreeSync Premium plus Adaptive Sync support, 113% sRGB and 90.7% DCI-P3 color gamut, Delta E<2 color accuracy, and VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified.
