May 7, 2021
Lenovo Legion is finally unleashing its next-generation of gaming PCs filled to the brim with innovative features that deliver more stylish and high-performing experiences to users.
The new arsenal embraces innovation by providing better resolution displays, AI-bolstered thermal cooling, and framerate customization, and the power to completely immerse gamers or face difficult tasks at ease with the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 H-series Mobile Processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3000 Series GPUs. Users can work hard during the day and play harder at night with the savage performances of the Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro, and Legion 7 notebooks.
“Our latest Legion devices are battle-ready to let users easily breeze through the most demanding requirements for work and play. Continuing on the promise of innovation and smarter technology for all, the new PCs enable seamless play using technologies such as AI to make the most out of the instant responsiveness and accelerated performance from AMD and NVIDIA’s newest gaming processors. Together with the help of our strategic partners, we are in a fantastic position to further build a gaming reputation based on continuous innovation,” said Lenovo Philippines President and General Manager Michael Ngan.
These are just some of the main highlights of the Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro, and Legion 7.
AMD Ryzen™ 5000 H-series Mobile Processors
The new Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro,and Legion 7 are among the first notebooks equipped with the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 H series Mobile Processors. These are the only processors in the world to have 8 high-performance cores suited for ultrathin gaming notebooks. Powered by AMD’s new Zen 3 Core Architecture and the world’s most advanced x86 chip technology, the processors combine incredible efficiency, elite performance, and long-lasting battery life that will keep gamers playing more for years to come.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3000 Series GPUs
Accompanying the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 H-series Mobile Processors are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3000 Series GPUs developed to bring the ultimate gaming performance. These graphics cards are jam-packed with new internals such as the award-winning NVIDIA Ampere architecture, 3rd Generation Ray Tracing Cores, 2nd Generation Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors to give gamers and content creators the most realistic graphics ever along with cutting-edge AI to fine-tune art to the smallest detail. They also feature NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 Technology that also uses AI to accelerate the laptop’s performance when playing games. Booting up Cyberpunk 2077 with DLSS Technology, for example, boosts performance by up to 60%.
Smarter Technology by Lenovo
The Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro, and Legion 7 come with the Lenovo Legion AI Engine that currently supports the top-16 AAA games and enables them to be played as smoothly as ever. The engine combines the best-in-class hardware, software, and machine learning to overclock PC performance. Upon booting up a game, the Legion AI Engine automatically detects and routs the most-ideal Thermal Design Power (TDP) settings to the CPU and GPU to achieve the maximum frames per second (FPS) in games. It also uses machine learning in other games to continuously tune gaming performance for maximum results.
The new Legion lineup also utilizes AI in the Coldfront 3.0 thermal management system to keep the temperature inside cooler as gaming action heats up. Coldfront 3.0 packs an intelligent intake system that allows for an increased airflow of up to 18% as compared to the last generation by using turbo-charged dual-fans and quad-channel exhausts with vapor chamber technology. Together with the help of efficient thermal conduction materials, Coldfront 3.0 moves huge volumes of air through components to dissipate heat rapidly and allows for optimized performance and all-day mobility with long-lasting battery life.
The world’s first 16” QHD gaming notebooks
Both the Legion 5 Proand Legion 7are the first gaming laptops in the world to come out with 16” Quad High Definition (QHD) displays, allowing them to have a taller and clearer (2560 x 1600 resolution) 16:10 aspect ratio. Combined with up to a 165Hz refresh rate, 100%sRGB, and 500 nits of brightness, gamers are treated to a cinematic-like experience that also assists in competitive games. The larger display raises a gamer’s sightlines and provides a better field of view, so they’ll detect enemies faster. Moreover, both displays of the Legion 5 Pro and Legion 7 have 3ms response times and can come out VESA DisplayHDR™ 400 Certified and with Dolby Vision® and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ support.
The new Legion lineup’s Harman® speakers are now optimized with Nahimic® Audio. Designed for gamers, Nahimic gives a competitive edge with 360-degree audio and features such as Night Mode with smart volume reduction, and Sound Tracker that visually points out a sound’s source and direction in a game. Nahimic Audio also enables crystal-clear video calls with its background noise suppression feature, and it also comes with Sound Sharing that allows the streaming of audio from a PC to two different headsets without the need for audio adapters.
Lenovo’s upgraded Vantage software is also bringing the speed in the Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro, and Legion 7. They now come with the VantageSmart Performance Services solution that reduces PC downtime by scanning, detecting, and removing traces of spyware, malware, and adware. Gamers can also use the new solution to significantly reduce lag and latency issues while playing online multiplayer games through its ability to fix network and access issues.
Aiding the Lenovo Vantage in enabling seamless play among the new devices is their 3-Year Premium Care warranty service that’s bundled together with the notebooks upon purchase. The service consists of solutions that provide an advanced and tailored level of care that reduces downtime, increases efficiency, and keeps customers moving. Included among the offerings that users of Premium Care can enjoy are a 24/7 direct hotline to Specialized Senior Technicians, comprehensive hardware and software support, and an Annual PC Health Check.
