Was it wise to use Intel’s 14+++++ nm CPUs? Time will tell.
Following the Legion brand of laptops, Lenovo has announced two new models, the Legion 5i and Legion 7i. At first glance, the chassis of these new laptops seem to be similarly designed to the previous Legion Y540 and Y740 models.
Both the Legion 5i and 7i will feature the new Intel 10th Gen Core H processors and the mobile RTX graphics from NVIDIA. While the Legion 5i can only be configured with up to an RTX 2060, the Legion 7i can be equipped up to an RTX 2080 SUPER Max-Q.
Lenovo also advertises that these new models will support NVIDIA G-SYNC and will be the first to feature the new NVIDIA Advanced Optimus technology. By dynamically detecting the current GPU workload, this new technology will automatically choose what to connect to the display between the iGPU and the NVIDIA GPU. This is different from the current NVIDIA Optimus wherein the NVIDIA GPU can be used for assigned applications, but the display will still use the iGPU (unless the laptop features a MUX switch).
Lastly, the Legion 5i and the Legion Y540 with the RTX 2060 GPU will be priced starting at US$999 (~Php 50,809), while the Legion 7i and Y40 with the RTX 2070 GPU will start at US$1199 (~Php 60,981). Unfortunately, Lenovo did not give any more details on the specifications of these new models. Stay tuned for more updates on these new laptops!
