Lenovo Legion’s Futuristic Gaming Machines now available

Following an initial announcement at CES earlier this year, Lenovo’s new range of Legion™ products are now available to purchase in the UK and Ireland. Consisting of the Lenovo Legion 7, Lenovo Legion 5 Pro and Lenovo Legion 5, the new range is packed full of hot gaming features and even cooler thermals, transforming the gaming experience all around the world.

Lenovo Legion’s battle-ready lineup harnesses the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to auto-enable seamless gaming. Customers can count on integrated machine learning to elevate gameplay settings and framerates to pro levels. With seven savage products to choose from, there is something for everyone – no matter where they are on their gaming journey.

The Lenovo Legion laptops are expertly crafted with intelligent Lenovo Legion Coldfront 3.0 thermals for an increased airflow of up to 18 percent gen-to-gen to better manage the heat and noise generated by all that raw processing power. Lower system temperatures allow for optimized performance and all-day mobility with a long-lasting battery life.2 Multiple sensors are placed on the CPU, GPU, rear and side thermal vents, as well as on the SSD memory card and palm rest to fire off information every nanosecond to predict your system’s thermal curve for hours of gaming with zero throttling.

To further dissipate heat, the copper heat sink system has been expanded, for up to 82 percent more thermal fin area gen-to-gen and drilled copious holes into the laptop’s bottom cover and even under the keyboard to keep things cooler.

Introducing a Lenovo gaming exclusive, the new Lenovo Legion AI Engine is a smarter combination of best-in-class hardware, software, firmware and driver support that all work together to help overclock your PC’s performance by sharing Thermal Design Power6 (TDP) between the CPU and GPU to better manage any heavy-duty gaming requirement. All the AI capabilities inherent to the Lenovo Legion AI Engine trigger the internal system actions and software features necessary to channel any unused power from your CPU to the GPU or vice versa, depending on where it’s needed most.

Steve Hope, Consumer Director, Lenovo said “We could not be more excited to bring out this new line of savagely brilliant gaming laptops. Not only is the Legion range designed to perfection, with state-of-the-art cooling technology, but the hardware is coupled with AI capabilities that separate these devices from the rest and provide gamers with the ultimate tools to beat their opponents.”
