Lenovo to Release New Legion Series Gaming Hardware with Several Upgrades
PC manufacturer Lenovo has just announced that they are launching a new set of their Legion series gaming computers. These new computers come in the form of both laptops and a new desktop, as well as several gaming accessories. The new hardware comes in a variety of price points for gamers of multiple budgets, and they have several new upgrades. Take a look at what Lenovo has to offer.
First of all, the new Lenovo gaming computers will offer an upgrade in the TrueStrike keyboard, built for gaming and productive typing. Another improvement is the Hybrid mode, improving the battery life and making the system quieter. There’s also NVIDIA Advanced Optimus and Rapid Charge Pro support available. Lenovo is also using their new Coldfront 2.0 thermal management system to create better airflow and keep temperatures low. They’ll even have the option to use Dual Burn support to push the CPU and GPU to their limits without thermal throttling. Screens will have the option of Dolby Vision and Overdrive support, even providing optional 240Hz refresh rates.
The lineup of products includes the Legion 7, the Legion 5i, the Legion 5, and the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 computer. Many of these machines will offer high quality gaming and performance, including software and support for a better consumer experience. One of the other options, the Lenovo Legion Y740S laptop, offers processing power up to the 10th gen Intel core i9 H-series mobile processor. The Y740S and the Legion 7 include vapor chamber cooling systems, eliminating heat while dual liquid crystal polymer fans cycle the airflow. They’ll also offer 1920 x 1080 resolution screens with 100% Adobe sRGB color accuracy and VESA DisplayHDR 400 for more precise detail.
For the first time, Lenovo is also offering an option for the AMD Ryzen 4000 H-series processor for the Legion 5. These laptops will come in both 15″ and 17″ options, and also select up to the 10th gen Intel core H-series processors. The 15″ IPS displays will offer the VESA DisplayHDR 400 and up to 240Hz for the refresh rate. The system can even include up to a GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. The systems can come with up to 15GB of DDR4 memory and up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. They’ll even have optional 4-zone RGB lighting. With the 17″ model will offer up to 144hz instead for the refresh rate. The systems will offer up to 8 hours of battery life, and will support WiFi 6 and Dolby Atmos.
The Lenovo Legion Tower 5i offers a lot of the same performance, but in the form of a desktop. This system can have up to a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super GPU, able to support 4K gaming with smooth frame rates. It will also offer Intel core processors and the Legion Coldfront 2.0 cooling system. Using a 150-watt CPU cooler and larger intake fans, the system will run at lower temperatures with plenty of circulation. The Legion Tower 5 will also offer AMD processor options later this year.
Next up is the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3, a more affordable solution for gamers on a budget. This 15″ laptop offers up to a 120Hz refresh rate and up to an Intel core i7 processor. It was made to reduce screen stuttering, load times and to offer a keyboard more ideal for gaming. The system offers up to a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU to get a decent gaming experience for the cost. This laptop will also come in two colors, Chameleon Blue or Onyx Black.
Lenovo’s new gaming accessories are also coming to help you get into the game. The Lenovo Legion Y25-25 gaming monitor is a 24.5″ full HD anti-glare IPS monitor that offers refresh rates up to 240Hz. The Legion M600 wireless mouse offers up to 200 hours of battery life, charging with a USB-C cable, and a 1000Hz polling rate for lower latency. On the other hand, the Legion M300 RGB mouse offers comfort for right or left-handed players, up to 8,000 DPI, and the same 1000Hz polling rate. Finally, the Legion K300 RGB gaming keyboard offers up to 24 programmable keys, anti-ghosting, and a customizable 5-zone RGB illumination. It’s also designed to be water resistance and durable for up to 20 million key presses.
