Legion took to the stage this CES 2021 with their new and improved gaming notebooks!
Legion unleashes their next-gen gaming laptops at CES 2021. These notebooks pack the latest specs the market has to offer along with some savvy other upgrades.
First, lets talk about all the upgrades these laptops will get, regardless of model or variant. The cooling system in all of these will be the new Lenovo Legion Coldfront 3.0. A system designed for increased airflow for better heat management. Thermal sensors are also placed on the CPU, GPU, rear and side thermal vents as well as on the SSD and palm rest to better gauge the system’s overall temperature. To cap it all off, we’ve got an expanded copper heat sink and more holes in the bottom and under the keyboard area for better air facilitation.
Then we move on to the Lenovo Q-Control. Featuring a new auto optimization setting dubbed as Intelligent Mode. Allowing the system to custom-tune gaming performance based on Legion’s current database of Triple-A titles. We also have a Lenovo gaming exclusive engine dubbed the Lenovo Legion AI Engine. A program designed to manage and overlook your PC’s performance by prioritizing workload between the CPU and GPU.
With those out of the way let’s look at the new offerings of Legion for 2021 starting with the flagship Legion 7. This new iteration now comes with a taller 16-inch screen with 100 percent sRGB color gamut, a 16:10 aspect ratio, and a QHD IPS panel with 165Hz refresh rate. To further up the ante, the display has support for Dolby Vision and Nvidia’s G-Sync. Of course, being the next-gen flagship the Legion 7 comes equipped with the latest from AMD and Nvidia. The notebook can have up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900H processor and Nvidia’s RTX 30-series GPU. Finally we have an 80WHr battery with Rapid Charge Boost and support for a WiFi 6 Killer AX1650 module.
Next up we have the slimmer and sexier brother of the Legion 7, the Legion Slim 7. The thinnest and lightest Legion in the series’ history features a 15.6″ 4K or FHD IPS display. Much like its brethren this one sports the latest internals with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 5900H processor and Nvidia’s RTX 30-series GPU. We’re also getting an optional WiFi 6 Killer AX1650 module and a 71WHr battery with Rapid Charge Express.
Moving on we have the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro. The notebook comes in two colors: Stingray White and Storm Grey. Of course, under the hood we have the latest AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor and an Nvidia RTX 30-series GPU. For display we have a 16-inch QHD IPS panel with 165Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time.
Last but not least we have the Legion 5. The notebook comes in two display sizes, 15 and 17-inch. The bigger variant comes with a 17.3″ FHD IPS display with 144Hz refresh rate while the 15.6″ one comes with a FHD IPS panel with 165Hz refresh rate. Much like its other brethren the Legion 5 comes with the latest AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor and an Nvidia RTX 30-series GPU.
