Everyone is chill until the legion rolls up. And what is the legion bringing with them this time? A refreshed line of laptops. So let’s break it down.
To start, Lenovo has brought 2 new laptops to the table, the Lenovo Legion 5i and 7i. Specs are as you imagine, with the latest gen components from Intel’s 10th gen H-Series and NVIDIA’s
RTX series. At the top end, you will see a RTX 2080 SUPER crammed into the laptop’s rather small chassis. This is thanks to NVIDIA’s Max-Q design.
For those who may be unaware, the Max-Q design is a less powerful, more efficient design of the standard cards. This allows the cards to perform on a level that is more suitable to be on the go where power efficiency and temperatures are more of a factor. If you had a full fledged 2080 SUPER in a laptop, it would not be good. The card would not only heat up to unsafe temperatures, but drain the battery at an alarming rate.
In addition, the Legion 7i and 5i are also featuring the new NVIDIA Advanced Optimus to go along with the Max-Q cards. A new program that will detect the level of workload that is occurring, and then use the NVIDIA GPU or the IGP. This will ensure you are getting the best performance and the longest battery life out of your system.
The Legion 5i features a RTX 2060 will start at $999(USD) while the bigger brother 7i have a RTX 2070 and start at $1199(USD). The higher spec models will come with a bigger tag. Exactly how much bigger the tag will be and the specs to accompany it will be announced at a later time.
As for a release date? Well, you will have to stay tune for that bit of info.
