New Lenovo Legion Laptops Feature RTX SUPER Max-Q, 10th Gen Intel
So Long Legion Y540 and Y740, Hello Lenovo Legion 5i And 7i
Lenovo announced their new Comet Lake powered 15.6″ gaming laptops today, the Legion 5i – which starts at $999 – and the Legion 7i with a base model costing $1199. As with the previous models they will support G-SYNC adaptive sync, but new to these models is support for NVIDIA Advanced Optimus battery optimization software – and these are the first laptops to feature this, according to Lenovo.
As you might have guessed, these new Legion laptops are also the first from Lenovo to feature 10th Gen Intel Core H-Series mobile processors, too.
“Powered by the new GeForce RTX SUPER GPUs with Max-Q Design on the new Lenovo Legion 7i laptop, gamers will enjoy higher clock speeds and new levels of realism in today’s AAA games. Its sibling, the new Lenovo Legion 5i laptop, will offer up to RTX 2060 GPU. Lenovo Legion’s new gaming PCs will also support NVIDIA G-SYNCTM technology for smoother, tear-free gameplay. Both new Lenovo Legion laptops will offer up to the latest 10th Gen Intel Core H-Series mobile processors too.
What’s more, the new Lenovo Legion PCs, including the Lenovo Legion 7i and Lenovo Legion 5i, will also be the first to feature the new NVIDIA Advanced Optimus technology for improved battery efficiency. Developed in collaboration with NVIDIA, Advanced Optimus dynamically detects GPU workloads and automatically connects either the NVIDIA GPU (for demanding workloads) or the IGP (for light workloads) to the display. This helps to preserve battery life when light workload applications are running and delivers maximum performance and framerates when games are being played.”
The Legion 5i comes with an RTX 2060, and while the base model of the Legion 7i sports an RTX 2070 you can upgrade to an RTX 2080 Super Max-Q. That’s all we really know for now; Lenovo is planning a full release later this month, so stay tuned.
